Strength:

Fairly light, strong and amazing grip

Weakness:

None so far

Dope pedals for the price. I got camo ones as they were the only ones that would suit my paint scheme. They look awesome and the camo would suit most bikes. They are light for a strong platform pedal. Bearings feel ultra smooth. So much grip i struggled to reposition my foot at first and will probably wind down the studs slightly to make it a little easier.

Strength:

big, heaps of grip, nice color ( orange ), feels strong.

Weakness:

bearings have started giving up a bit, One pedal wobbles alot.

The bearings gave up because i thrash my bike on rutty tracks. If your thinking of these for a fully go for it, but if ur thrashin your bike there is probably better choices

Strength:

Weight / strength, grip.

Weakness:

Bad bearings - worn out quick. Pins are tough to get out when the top get ground down. I prefer to be able to remove from the bottom, not the top.

Bearings wore out way too fast. Pedals are now garbage after 6 months. Going to put my 3 year old Kona's back on. Couldn't replace some of the pins since the tops got ground down. Had to use pliers, just a pain.

They will rip the crap out of your shins but that isn't the pedals fault.

Great grip, but lots of pedals have a good grip - and good bearings.

Strength:

Grippy

Weakness:

Weak internal construction

I was all hyped up about these pedals and they worked fine for the first ride and then it all went down hill. After the third ride they siezed up and then got loose right away. They are already tightened all the way and they rattle and creak. Very hard time reaching company through MY SPACE, ..when they did write back they say it is a product malfunction but would not help..ponded it off on the distributor or place where they were purchased. Contacted distributor..stated contact Universal Cycles, emailed them....still waiting for a response... No support. Would not recommend!!!!!!

Strength:

Large surface area, hold on to your shoes like they're glued to the pedal. Open beer.

Weakness:

None yet.

If you're looking for a some pedals to use for freeriding, these pedals are fantastic, they grip into your shoes very well and if you grind off a pin, they are replacable, Yay. I don't yet know if they are good for downhill, but I assume they are with how they feel. The only pedal that has more grip that I found was the BMW Shin Burger. And like the Shin Burger, these pedals will open your beer for you when the day is done without turning your shins into hamburger, like the BMW's, if your foot slips. There's tons of pedals out there but these one work well for me.

None at all.

You will not be unhappy with these pedals

Strength:

really grippy design, big, blocky really strong and durable, look great too!

Weakness:

A bit oversized so they hit some rocks, non-sealed. Weight (i am a free-reider, but theese are a bit excessive.)

I paid 79 canadian dollars for these pedals, and they are great The price is pretty good and the grip that they provide is amazing! these pedals are somthing that you can just put on your bike and forget about. they have planty of room, so your entire shoe sole can fit on with some room to spare. an all-round great product that is worth the money and grips like a clipless pedal. YOu should but these pedals if you want to make the switch from clipless to platform, if your current pedals have broke, or your looking for more grip. D;ont buy theese if you are weight concious.

Strength:

They are huge. My feet have never slipped off the whole time ive been ridin them. The grip tape in the middle of them is sick as.

Weakness:

Lost a couple of pins, can mess up your shins pretty good

Easily the best pedals i have ever ridden. The pins on them a massive and the grip tape in the middle is an awesome touch. Whatever i hit i know that my feet will not slip off these badboys. They have absolutely no play in them and the are smooth as. Definately recommend them to anyone.
