Strengths:    See review

Weaknesses:    entry and exit

Bottom Line:   
I've used alot of Ritchey products in the past and they've performed admirably. But I gotta say, these pedals plain suck. You have to put about 8 million pounds of pressure to enter these pedals, even at the lowest "-" setting. And there's practically no float, despite the manufacturer's claim. One bad review may be an exception. Two, you start to go "hmmm". Three, now there's a trend. Look at the # of crap reviews for this pedal. I say that's more than a trend. I hate to give this pedal a terrible review - like I said, I usually love Ritchey components - but I call em' like I see 'em: these things suck ass. I guess when you compare these to my last pedals (the venerable 747's, the best ever and now that I've gotten the 959's), they're gonna suck.

Strengths:    A bit light, najs design looks great, invert clip out "normal for all spd" and its a good product for xc riding

Bottom Line:   
The clamp is at start way too tight belive me the first ride i was on nearly launched me down in the dirt! But hey thats my mistake for not checking the stuff before riding -
DO your self a favor and lossen the clamp, and these babys will work a long time with very little maitnens!

I'm gonna give this product 4 chillis for Value because of the low price / strong and a bit lightweight construction.
And 3 Chillis overall because out there, there is bound too be a product that has every Strengths and is still light

Strengths:    Light Weight, open frame design

Weaknesses:    small platform

Bottom Line:   
I found the following on Ritchey's web site, it might explain the whining on this board:
2003 and newer: Ritchey and Shimano pedals will share the same cleats. 2002 and older: The Ritchey pedals are designed to run with Ritchey cleats. The Shimano cleats will clip in but will not perform properly. Your ingress and egress performance will be hampered.

Strengths:    none

Weaknesses:    Difficult entry and exit, unintentional exit

Bottom Line:   
These are the worse pedals I have ever used, and frankly Tom Ritchey should be embarrased he puts his name on them. Entry and exit are difficult even when clean and freshly lubed, and becomes near impossible once the pedal gets dirty. Mud riding? Don't even bother. Did Thomas Frischknecht really use these things? I find it hard to believe. I used the Logic comps before these and they worked O.K so I tried these. Big mistake. Dangerous is the one word that sums up these pedals.

Date Reviewed: July 22, 2002

Strengths:    Good price.

Weaknesses:    Only regarding what they are not designed for.

Bottom Line:   
I think these are a fine first set of clipless pedals. The price is right, and if you stay out of the mud they seem to perform very well.

Initially the entry/release screw is set WAY to tight, avoid my mistake and loosed it before your first clip in. You can tighten it later to better suit you.

I found getting in and out to be pretty easy with these pedals, I picked them up with some SIDI bullets at MEC. Once in a while a drop of oil on the springs keeps everything smooth.

Ultimately I choose them over some Shimano 515s based on more float in the ritcheys.

Strengths:    Take a beating adjustments hold lightweight

Weaknesses:    Paint chips a little squeeky at times

Bottom Line:   
Good pedal if you are havin problems then you arent using these pedals right any spd type pedal with get stuck with mud duh. These are cross country pedals they work great for what the where designed remember that. And if they are hard to get in and out of then adjust them I beet these pedals i hit rocks and take drops they just keep going even after a very hard hit on a rock they keep working just as i had them set before i started the ride sorry but the first thing if you cant get them to work is realize what kind of riding you are doing

Strengths:    decent weight

Weaknesses:    sucks in mud
hard to get in and out of


Bottom Line:   
I respect Tom Ritchey and I've used his other stuff on and offroad with great success so I bought these. But I finished a race today and the biggest problem I had was the mud and getting in and out of these pedals on dismounts. There were several areas backed up on the course where I had to run my bike up hill to get around people. I either couldn't get out or get back in when I remounted. I felt this was a hinderance to my performance (self-improvement of course not withstanding). I've always used SPD and rode these with no problems with epic trail use, which I think they are good for but not racing. I'm getting Times.

Strengths:    Blue matches my SID

Weaknesses:    Every other feature

Bottom Line:   
These pedals could not suck much worse. I used the gold Ritcheys for years & loved them. Wore out two sets. But I CANNOT GET OUT OF THESE PEDALS!!! Getting in is pretty tough too, but at least that doesn't usually cause me bodily injury. Ritchey should be ashamed. Did anybody test this crap before they marketed it?
I'm SO happy to read all these other reviews, my husband keeps saying I'm just too lame to clip out properly. And yes, I have shaved away shoe and put them on the loosest setting. I have used Ritcheys since I first got clipless almost 10 years ago, but I'm about to switch brands.

Strengths:    I like the durability, the looks, and ease of use.

Weaknesses:    They fell apart after time...Maybe my fault, as I did not ever take proper care of them

Bottom Line:   
As a beginner when I purchased them, I thought they were good, and they did get the job done, now better products have come out. I would not recommend them.

Submitted by Will a Cross Country Rider from San Francisco, CA

Date Reviewed: November 28, 2001

Strengths:    Clips in and out pretty well. Stiff.

Weaknesses:    Creaks after been through a few hours of riding and sometimes it gets so bad that you feel it through your legs, not good. I have the Cro-Moly axel after testing out the Ti axel pair and found only slight weight difference but Ti does not rust like Cro-Mo. Ritcheys are last decades technology.

Bottom Line:   
Don't buy it if you could afford better. I'm moving onto Time ATAC carbon since i've been outrun by my friend who swears by them. I've seen mud literally pour out the sides as he clips in. I'm stuck using my fingers to clear out the pedal of mud and often wiping my lousy cleats. The worse part is that the pedals creak and rust, i don't expect a long lifespan on these. However, for standard dusty singletrack and fireroads, it'll be great. Just lube your bearings every so often, something I believe you shouldn't have to do until the next major overhaul of your bike.

Strengths:    nice color.....

Weaknesses:    Can't get in, can't get out

Bottom Line:   
These pedals suck. I have to turn my foot a full 90 degrees to get out of them on any tension setting. It's almost impossible to get into them if you have any dirt on your shoes at all..... I got some CODA's for cheap, and they perform better after 1000m of trails (slick rock and slick mud) this year than the ritcheys did out of the box. If you want to survive a semi-technical ride, don't use these pedals.

Submitted by John Smith a Weekend Warrior from Toronto

Date Reviewed: July 1, 2001

Strengths:    Easy to get out of when set to lowest spring tension.

Weaknesses:    Screws bolting springs to the pedals come loose.
Screws holding cleat cage to pedal also come loose.
Accidental release during pedaling or bunny hopping.
Paint chips easily.
Does not 'shed' mud as advertised.


Bottom Line:   
These pedals were better than the Kore GASS pedals that I had because they were very easy to get out of in emergencies. However they are prone to accidental release when bunny hopping or pedaling.

The screws and bolts on the Ritcheys also become loose even after I put 'Locktite' on them. As a result I always make sure that the bolts on screws on my pedals are tightened before I go on every ride.

In muddy conditions the pedals are VERY difficult to get into, and its design does not shed mud as advertised. Mud just cakes onto the pedal, and I usually stop during my ride to scrape some of it off my cleats and pedals so that I can click in.

Overall I would not recommend this pedal because of its poor performance, and price. If the pedals were cheaper (~$20) then they may be suitable for someone who doesn't ride alot and has a small budget. Your money would be better spent on Shimano pedals or some other reputable brand.

I've just replaced the Ritcheys with Time ATACs and I'll write a review on them after I have some time to evaluate them.
