Submitted by mtbcrazy a Cross Country Rider from Piedmont, North Carolina

Date Reviewed: June 2, 2004

Strengths:    Light, better than Shimano, good in mud, lasts forever.

Weaknesses:    old version's axle was questionable.

Bottom Line:   
Although they broke (after 2,000 miles), the axles were replaced promptly and haven't broken since (6,000+ more miles per the ride analyzer: http://www.rideanalzyer.com).
Very light, easy in and out, easy to maintain, almost no maintenance required. Can't be beat!

Date Reviewed: February 24, 2002

Strengths:    They are light

Weaknesses:    You never know when they will break

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line is I had a good minute on the rest of the field in round 3 of the National champs (master 2), with half a lap to go the right pedal sheared off, hadnt crashed, wasnt really under load, just smooth medium gear rolling downhill. It could cost me the series. Use if you are a weenie, but not for racing. I had used another pair for a year with no problems, this pair were practically brand new.

Date Reviewed: December 14, 1999

Strengths:    
Light Weight
Consistent Entry/Release
SPD Compatible Cleats


Weaknesses:    
Ti Axle Strength


Bottom Line:   
After over two years of hard riding with a 225 lb. rider one of my Ti axles snapped. However, K2 informed me they have a revised design Ti axle which is supposed to be beefier. They overnighted a new pair under warranty to my LBS without hesitation. Great pedal; Great Customer Service.

Date Reviewed: September 20, 1999

Strengths:    
LIght
SPD compatible


Weaknesses:    
white paint looks like crap
after a while


Bottom Line:   
I normally don't post, but I figured I'd offset the previous review. I've had the pedals for 2 seasons and mine have held up fine. Including 12 races this year. At 288g, pretty much the lightest SPD out there. Ti spindles always have a risk, however.

Submitted by Greg a Cross-Country Rider from St. Joseph, MI

Date Reviewed: May 31, 1999

Weaknesses:    
axle integrity


Bottom Line:   
Frustratingly, I was recently in a race, and with only half a lap (of 4) to go, the left pedal's axle snapped clean off. I was very fortunate not to have been injured! I am light (142 #s) and do not have an abundance of power like some of you bigger dudes. Prior to my experience I had met a guy who had the same thing happen to him twice. Pedal axles are something that should simply never fail in this type of situation.
