Strengths:    light, low profile, grips well

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
Very good light weight pedal that grips well. I am noticing that the pins are wearing down after a lot of riding. I would recommend these to those who don't want to ride clip less.

Strengths:    I really like the low profile of this pedal. It allows you a little more margin for error when pedaling through rock gardens, around corners, and while your suspension is active. The low profile design also gives you a better 'feel' for the bike through your feet. The pins may seem sparse but they grip my 5.10s just fine.

Weaknesses:    The generally low profile of the pedal means that the pins dont have much to thread in to. This means they're coming loose more often. Unfortunately I had a few of my pins strip out, some of which stayed in and just spun in place rather than tightening or backing out.

Bottom Line:   
This pedals performs really well. Grips your shoe, stays out of the way of rocks, and is extremely light and durable. Unfortunately I lost a few pins and was unable to remove other problem pins. I won them at an alley cat so I can't really complain. I think I would have been willing to spend the $85 MSRP. They're good pedals, as good as anything else in this price range.

Strengths:    Very Light, provide grip like a metal sport bike (motorcycle) peg. Meaning you can move your foot around when need yet they are very grippy. The also have a very thin profile.

Weaknesses:    None so far except the middle part may be felt with non mtb shoes. At least it lets you know if your centered on the pedal. Which I like some may not.

Bottom Line:   
Yes I would say get these as there around 65-75$. Provide great grip for those who like to move around and have an excellent platform. Gave it a 4 for overall only because of the middle part which some may not like or some may want more pins as these pedals only have five pins per side.

Strengths:    Light, decent grip, and cheap.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Great light trail/commute pedal. Good grip and doesn't rip my shoes up. No shin issues. I really recommend this as a stock replacement for riders that don't want to break the bank, need medium grip, and are riding light trails or commuting...
