Strengths:    Very thin pedal, and still concave. Nice size surface, large enough but not so big as to hit things. steel body should be more resistant to impacts than the usual aluminum or magnesium ones. Nice open design, great in snow/ice.

Weaknesses:    Bearings are very poorly sealed. After 3 months I rode them in the wet a few times, then let them sit for 2 weeks. After that I almost couldn't turn them, they had seized. When I broke them free they remained very rough and with a lot of drag. Quite unexpected for a pedal only a few months old. I have other pedals that are years old.

Bottom Line:   
Great design, but bearing/seals are so horrible I don't use them anymore.

Strengths:    Very thin, grippy, look good, cheaper, than other thin pedals

Weaknesses:    Just minutes into the first off-road ride both dust caps went loose. An hour later the left pedal just fell off with no warning sign (apparently, due to broken axle). Fortunately, it happened on a slow flat section, so I got away with no injuries.
Pretty heavy too, but with zero durability, weight is not the biggest problem.


Bottom Line:   
The product is dangerous to use and should be recalled ASAP. Sudden loss of a pedal may result in lost control with quite unpleasant consequences.
