Strengths: Weight, feel, strength, pin location options, looks, made in USA, customer service
Weaknesses: price, bushings will develop play but they are EASY to replace
These pedals feel great under foot. Traction has never been an issue even climbing which some complain about because it's a true flat and has no concavity. I have the TI axles and they have been very durable. I've smacked these things into rocks, taken nasty crashes, and the axles are still straight. I've bent cromo axles before so I was worried about ti, but they are solid! Bushings will develop play, but they are easy to replace and Tyler at twenty6 sent them for free! Great customer service! I now have the prerunners on my DH bike, and TI ralley's on my AM bike. Great pedals! Price is high, but not outrageous compared to other high end pedals on the market. If you can afford them you won't be disappointed.

Strengths: These pedals are like feathers, self lube, no hassle, great color, hand built in the U.S.A.
Weaknesses: The wait from placing the order to finally receiving them. The price but you get what you pay for. Quality
There are a handful of components made by hand out there and these pedals are the dogs bollocks. Outstanding, I have been running clipless for quite some time and decided to make the switch doing more aggressive riding, and these pedals never left the soles of my shoes i could have sworn i had clipless on
Weaknesses: Id say cost is a little high except Ive blown apart other pedals for half the money on taken harder hits with these!
I have had these since the release and beat the crap out of them severly, hit a rock with the foot down and forward hard enough to lift my 240lbs up and off to the right in a race almost causing me to wreck reallly bad at speed. When I got to the bottom i was expecting the pedal to be devoured, broken, pins missing and hte axlew bent!
NONE!!!! No issues, 2 pins pointing in off angles and part of the pedal was bent a little but nothing. Still rode them almost another 8 months before selling them and buying a new set different color to match the scheme of the bike.
I sent them back to Tyler to have him take a look at them and check bearings etc... No issues, regreased them and sent them back!
The pedals are amazing, try different pin configurations to fit your style best they have extra holes and if you want to make a concave get 5/8ths hollow allen pins, blue loctite and some 5:10s Ive had to pry my foot loose!

Strengths: Strong. Grippy. Light. Gorgeous.
Weaknesses: The money, but they'll last forever.
The handmade detail is unmistakeable. They are beautiful, solid and light. You can tell, they are made by a person, not a company. They are the new Dangerboys, but lighter than that extinct line.
Of the burly pedals out there these are the lightest due to their titanium spindles. The bearings have needed no maintenance after some 200 rides or total of about 400 hours in dust and mud! Remarkable. Of the fairly high end set-up on my bike, these are the cream of the crop.
