Strengths:    durable

Weaknesses:    heavy

Bottom Line:   
this was my first clipless pedal. i purchased on a good deal and used for a few hard seasons. they still work great and have no real complaints about them. i wouldn't like to race with them but for knockin around the trails they are great. i stopped using them because of the weight, but plan to put them on my girlfriends bike when she is ready to go clipless. i'm not terribly opposed to the no inward release because of the extra control i feel. i think it makes a great beginning/intermediate clipless pedal. it is hard to come by replacement parts, but i have had no need, maybe i'm just lucky. extra cleats would be nice since shimano don't fit.

Date Reviewed: February 10, 2000

Strengths:    Inexpensive
Survived repeated bashing sessions
Very adjustable tension
Doesn't release inwards (jumps)


Weaknesses:    Doesn't release inwards (crashes)
As much float as a lead brick


Bottom Line:   
Bought MKS 110's in early 95 for my Proflex 555. Within a month or two, I bought an 855, tried the included Onza's, and dumped them for my MKS'. I admit that I liked the fact that they didn't release inwards because I could set them really light, and pull my feet inwards when jumping. Best of both worlds, super easy release, NEVER accidentally unclipped.. Sadly, one pedal's bearings siezed up (plastic lockring was rotating with the spindle!!) in 12-99, so I tried 858's and went with 747's. I still miss the no inward release..

Strengths:    
UN certified bombproof steel


Weaknesses:    
made for the poor college cyclist


Bottom Line:   
One time I gunked up in a mud puddle, then a polecat sprayed me while I was trying to clean the stuff out. The only reason I still have these pedals is because they are rusted to my crankarm.

Bottom Line:   


These were the first pair of clipless pedals I used. They worked well except for the fact that they have no float and they only release to the outside. No float is okay if you have your cleats set up properly, but only releasing to the outside can be a problem in crashes. I've crashed a few times and ended up still attached to the pedals. I would not recommend these pedals for off road riding.

These were my first clipless pedals,bought them at performace mail order these things are great still have them but don't use them right now. Cpil in is rock solid no mistaking it you feel it use and abused them,scratched but still work great.I'd buy another pair if they were availble.The only and I mean only gripe is the have no inward float at all kinda tough on your knees but other than that I like them,oh by the way Do not Tioga clipmans they are absolutly worthless...

The MKS MXP 110 is an AWESOME clipless pedal! You can't find a better pedal for the realtively inexpensive cost. I broke the plastic sleve on the inside when I turned it incorrectly but when i sent it away I recieved a new pair of pedals for only the cost of the shipping!!! If you can still find these pedals somewhere, BUY THEM!!!

The MKS MXS 110 was my first clipless mtb pedal. This was a great pedal. Easy to click in and out of, and no hassles. However, they are no longer available (I've tried EVERYWHERE to find them), and mine took one tumble too many. May they rest in peace.

Bottom Line:   


This pedal is my first clipless. I have had them for about one and a half years. The main reason I got them was the price. I havn't busted them yet even though I've had heaps of stacks. I have noticed wear on the spindle but its not detracting from the pedals performance. One bad point I have noticed is the fact that it is possible to clip in with yor foot at about 45 degrees to the pedlal and you foot is then stuck. Its annoying and could cause a stack. That is the olnly real problem otherwise I have enjoyed them. They beat clips and straps any day.

I've had a pair of these for two seasons now, with no reason to replace them yet. Put simply, they work, and work well.I don't know where the $60 price came from, and I don't even think you can get them anymore. Maybe if you're a racer, or a techno-weenie, you need something more, but for me they work fine.

Bottom Line:   


Want to clip in, but sometimes don't? These MKS multipurpose pedals are
knock-offs, err rather, look-a-likes to the Shimano PDM323 pedals. These are
SPD on one side and standard cage on the other, plus these include the cleats.
They weigh in at approximately 540g for the pair, and a great for when you
want to clip in for the long road ahead, or flip 'em around for freedom when
you're jamming the more technical trails. Entry and exit-wise, these pedals
could use some better springs and screws for adjustability, but these will
suit the average weekend rider. Cleaning them after a muddy ride may be a
little more difficult than the Shimano ones (due to construction), but they
definitely work. (Costs approximately $55/pr with cleats compared to Shimano's
$75/pr sans cleats).

Bottom Line:   





Got my pair cheap US$45. Works OK. The click-in & out is quite positive. Therefore
price/performance wise is OK.


Now the down-side - I believe that MKS stopped development & production of the
MKS clipless. Replacement cleat are hard to find and rather expensive. And they
are not totally Shimano SPD cleats compatible.


Bottom-line - Value for money but I would not recommend it because of difficulty
in getting replacements part.

What clipless XC pedal?

Hi, I am a bit tired of how fast my Eggbeaters' bearings wear down. Unfortunately, the review section did not really inspire much confidence in most alternatives. I was thinking about Shimano's XTR, but apparently their pedal bodies do not necessarily have a long term relationship with the pedal ... Read More »

What clipless SPD pedal is recommended for a newbie? I have SPD shoes and have ridden clipless for commuting, but not mountain biking. Kind of looking at Shiman M424 but worried about the durability of the "cage" thing. Would appreciate any suggestions. Weight is not a factor, and I don't want t ... Read More »

Most secure clipless MTB pedal
