Weaknesses: Won't stay put when pedaling.straps located wrong
Bought these for a trip down UPS to LPS and Porcupine rim in Moab. They worked great for the gravity parts but failed miserably when it was time to pedal. They basically became ankle warmers. The fit seemed fine when stationary. Tried various tensions on the straps, No joy. They didn't articulate well and the pressure from the top strap pushed the pads down with every pedal stroke. Released the top strap completely and the pad stayed longer but still ended up around the ankles. Too bad because they are very well made. Good materials and workmanship, lousy design. Replaced them with Fox Launch Pro which articulate well and stay put under all conditions.
