Date Reviewed: August 13, 2010

Strengths:    For the price, the sealed bearings are pretty good
end bolt is protected from bash damage


Weaknesses:    Not concave enough
wrench flat will grind into your crank arms if you torque them on tight


Bottom Line:   
These pedals are a knock-off of the Transition Step Downs, which are one of my all time favorites. I got them because I can't seem to find the Step Downs anywhere. The 2 things I like are the sealed bearings, which are surprisingly good for the price, and the way the end bolt is protected from bashing. They have the same general shape as the Step Downs except that the cage is very flat, whereas the Step Downs have a more concave shape. The traction pins are longer, but there are less of them. Because of all this, they don't feel quite as sure-footed as the Step Downs. Also, the points on the wrench flats shaved into my crank arms when I installed them. Other manufacturers wrench flats are round where they contact the crank (like the Step Downs) or they chamfer those points (like Sunline pedals). Minor issues notwithstanding, these pedals perform pretty well and are a good value for the money.
