    Strengths:    Very light, blingy, easy to service

    Weaknesses:    Initial tension is very high

    Bottom Line:   
    If you are looking for a super light pedal with solid performance, you can't go wrong with these. I am 185-190lbs and was initially worried about the weight limit but it hasn't been an issue. I've done many short XC races on my first set and even a few endurance races. These have been set and forget pedals. That means they work. When they are new, you really need to back the tension off or they won't release. Over time, as with most pedals, it gets better. I've liked them so much I bought a second set for my 2011 race rig.

    Strengths:    Very good looking, very lightweight, shimano style clip in/out system. Low maintenance. Tougher than they look. Cheap/Value! Paid $180 AUD for these. XTR's are about $240.

    Weaknesses:    Not at 'solid' & smooth spinning as Shimano XT and not adjustable in the bearing department either.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have been very pleased with these pedals. Easy to service. They work well - have used them for about 1500 km so far, about 500 km of which is on dusty off road use. Only serviced them once so far. They are easy to use - they work with Shimano Cleats, although I use the Xpedo cleat they came with.... they look GREAT, too!
    Best of all they are very light on the bike and on the pocket, too. I am very impressed with the quality-for-the-money. Recommended.

    Strengths:    Extremely LIGHT and work perfectly.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    These have been great. Raced/trained on these all year and haven't had any problems. I've banged them up on rocky technical stuff, too. Never used the xpedo cleats, though. They didn't work very well with the MF-4As, so I already had Shimano cleats in my shoes and just stuck with those. I love the 'shimano' feel of these much better than the egg beaters feel. Plus these are LIGHTER! Seamless click-in click-out, easy adjustability.

    Strengths:    Xpedo Mountain Force Ti/Ti Pedals: Light Weight, Great Looking, Smooth In/Out, easy adjust and SPD compatible

    Weaknesses:    came from Australia over EBay -- US dealers ??

    Bottom Line:   
    Excellent quality Ti/Ti pedals - I ride hard on technical east coast stuff and XC race - 6'4' and 215# - not a masher or jumper/air guy so the Xpedo stated 185# limit is not a concern to me; retail a little pricey but worth the wait for the lower price/sale on ebay -- they are very easy/smooth in and out w great adjustability - really like the very visual adjustment gauge, no problem with epics w soles of feet; no hot spots or presure points, pedals shed mud well in our sloppy winter weather, seem to take the abuse of rocks and roots banging very well(no damage so far) and they have a good/easy rebuild kit -- I use the Shimano cleats on shoes - no problem w compatibility-- and they just look great - lots of wow! comments on the gold axle and Ti/Ti pedals. My scale says 220g (+10 over advertised) but minor thing. I've recommended them to several friends - best of both worlds; SPD quality platform w adjustable clamps and less than eggbeater weight !!
