Strengths:    easy to clip in and out when clean

Bottom Line:   
from my experience, it really works well when clean but horrible when full of mud. good for beginners but will not recommend in the long run.

Date Reviewed: May 4, 2009

Strengths:    I bought a new road bike that came with these pedals and was immediately impressed with their predictability, reliability and the ease of unclipping.then keeping them dialed in. Just tried them on my MTB and will never go back. Other products have left me feeling either trapped or too loose to go for it.

Weaknesses:    Not the easiest pedals to clip back into.

Bottom Line:   
If you're like me and being able to get out fast without accidentally wrenching your foot out of the pedal is important to you - go for these pedals. Great value - thank you Wellgo!

Strengths:    cheap, worked ok

Weaknesses:    inconsistent release/entry, broke

Bottom Line:   
Alright for entry level clipless, but upgrade if you can. They came with my old bike and they lasted for a while until they broke on a rock, now i have an excuse to get some Crank Brothers Acids. I never messed with the release tension much, but even on the easiest setting the release was sketchy. Serious riders should look somewhere else.

Strengths:    cheap, works OK

Weaknesses:    Mud. needed strip down and re-grease out of the box.

Bottom Line:   
Poor QC at the factory. I've never had problem clipping in or out (except the steep 5-crash clipless learning curve at the start). However, just after my trial run, the left started clicking. Pulled it apart, and there was no grease in the outer bearing. Pulled the other one apart too, and regreased both. Now I really like them, and would never go back to flats. The actual construction is fine (spindle, cups etc).

Strengths:    They work...just.

Weaknesses:    They don't work very well.

Bottom Line:   
You get what you pay for. Bearings are rubbish, can be difficult to clip in sometimes. More importantly, can be hard to clip out of sometimes. I use them on my racer now, to scared to use them on mtb, afraid i'll get stuck. In there defence though, I am still using the cleats that came with my Shimano pedals, which are meant to be interchangeable. The pedals come with cleats, so probably using them will help this problem of clipping out in a hurry...

Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    The bearings are really really rough. I don't know if it is symptomatic of brand new pedals, but all my previous pedals have been sweet from the word go...

Bottom Line:   
Ok i guess as entry level, disappointing that they are so stiff

Date Reviewed: June 11, 2005

Strengths:    Price is low, Extremely adjustable

Weaknesses:    Durability might be an issue?

Bottom Line:   
These is a perfect set for someone who wants to try clipless for the first time. They are inexpensive and pretty durable, mine took 6 months of hard abuse bouncing off rocks, stumps and whatever else is around, the front retaining piece finally broke off. Like others have said they release kind of rough compared to others but if this your first set of clipless, you won't even notice

Submitted by Nick a Cross Country Rider from State College, PA, Centre

Date Reviewed: May 19, 2005

Strengths:    Extreamely simple adjustability. There's a little "meter" on the pedal that tells you how hard they are set.

Weaknesses:    Not the best with clearing mud.

Part of pedal that actually grabs the cleat broke off on mine (see below). This part should be stronger/larger than it is.


Bottom Line:   
These pedals are decent pedals for a beginner rider, or for something cheap to get you by for a few months. They were my first set of clipless pedals and I liked them when I had them, as I had never ridden anything else.

In retrospect they don't release as nicely as my Shimano's do, which is how I broke them (trying to force my way out of them quickly). I rode them for about 4 months of hard abuse. I bounced them off of countless rocks and took them through the mud. They aren't sealed very well for muddy or wet riding, when I took them off the bearings on one of them were a little rough rolling.

I wouldn't buy them again, especially for the $40 that I payed for them, but they can be had for about half that, and they would be a good cheap pedal to buy to see if you like clip-ins.

Submitted by Bernard a Cross Country Rider from Israel

Date Reviewed: February 5, 2005

Strengths:    Price! and the shimano compatible cleats.
Easy setup, easy clip-in and out, and easy spring adjustment.
No trouble in mud so far, and no unwanted clipouts yet.


Weaknesses:    Black paint comes off after a couple of rides (so what?)
Hard to accurately set up all 4 clip springs to the same tension.


Bottom Line:   
Worth at least their price.
Great for learning the advantages of clipless pedals without spending the big $$$, if you don't count the grams on your bike.

Strengths:    Price! they are 20 bucks and plus the came with shimano spd cleats.

Weaknesses:    I fell 3 times in the first HOUR, but i'm sure thats my lack of experiance on clipless pedals.

Bottom Line:   
well I think for the price of cleats you get both the pedals and the cleats you cant beat it. I recomend these for beginners but not for the more experienced riders you might not get what you want. After I break these or just want to upgrade i'll but down a little more $$ on some different pedals most likely Shimano. Until then we will see how I do.

Strengths:    i paid 25.00 can for these pedals,durable enough as i'm 250 lbs and ride fairly hard.

Weaknesses:    as you can expect,(for their design)they don't shed mud very well and are very tight until broken in.

Bottom Line:   
great pedal for the money,I couldn't find anything even close .I bought a second set after torture testing these,a great value.I ride a lot (mostly xc).once broken in,they clip and unclip very well,but until then,they are pretty tight,even on the lightest setting.(be carefull offroading!)

Submitted by Shane a Weekend Warrior from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Date Reviewed: February 1, 2004

Strengths:    Excellent first time pedal to use, great value for the price...easy clip to learn on.

Weaknesses:    hard to get a proper setting for stiffness, need to play with it quite a bit to get it just right...black paint scratches up really easily...dirt clogs up fairly quickly to make for a hard entry into the clips.

Bottom Line:   
These pedals are excellent pedals to get if you are a first time user of clipless pedals, I used them for one season and have had no real problems with them, and I was very hard on them....after this first year though, I'm ready to get new pedals, as these just don't cut it when you want to go hard.
