Strength:

Easy to clip-in in all conditions.

Weakness:

Durability.

Crank Bros has done a great job of developing a low-durability product that requires frequent replacement. My original Eggbeaters lasted many years over numerous rebuilds. However, the last 3 sets of Eggbeater pedals I've purchased have died with 2 seasons or less of use, and I am a casual weekend warrior weighing a modest 160 lbs.

Strength:

Look good, Well built, Lighter than the Mallet 1's, Strong, last a long time.

Weakness:

None

I made the switch to clips about 3 years ago and have never looked back. My brother in law recommended Crank Brothers egg beaters but I never liked the way they look on the bike.

I got these pedals from a local shop brand new. I have had them now for three years mostly riding the local trails where I live. I have crashed hard many times (10+), broken components, cased jumps, have struck rocks with both pedals and crank arms, and these Mallet 3's are still going strong.

I figured after 3 years of riding this things would be worn out and ready to replace but have been proven wrong. I even had to replace the clips on my shoes about a month ago due to those being worn out.

Worth the money and will most likely end up getting new ones only because I want to change the color for my new bike.

Strength:

Sheds mud well. Easy to clip in. And out. Pins let you fine tune grip. Lots of float. Lightweight.

Weakness:

Occasional tendency to clip in when you don't want to.

Fantastic pedal. Most people would probably be as well off with the Mallet 2 but I got these for pretty much the same price off eBay. Run them with 661 Filters with one spacer under the cleat and they work perfectly for the aggressive XC/All Mountain riding I sometimes do.

Find them easier to get out of when I need to than the XT pedals I had previously. Can clip out and stand on the platforms for any hairy bits, grips nearly as well as a dedicated platform pedal thanks to the adjustable pins.
