Strength:

The weight to cost ratio is pretty amazing here. I have now had these little guys on my hardtail for YEARS..and not a single issue/failure/shortfall. Entry and exit have always been dependable and predictable. The bearings are buttery-smooth, and it's all easily re-buildable if ever you need to do it.

Weakness:

None.

The XPEDO products in general are very well built, with features not found on pedals from more "known" brands. The road pedals are amazing too! I am an XPEDO-phile for life!

Strength:

easy release (after stretching out the spring), works with shimano cleats, adjustable

Weakness:

too stiff out of the box

These pedals came stock on my Fuji Outland Pro. I had not used clipless pedals before and the stiffness of these concerned me, because I ride some fairly steep and technical trails in Phoenix. I found that I could greatly loosen the spring tension by prying the clamp part all the open a few times with a screwdriver. I also bought some Shimano multi-release cleats and they work well with the pedals.

Strength:

Clips ya in and when I'm going air born in the bad way, I can get still get unclipped.
Hard to beat the price point

Weakness:

They broke on me after about a year, I was left to flop over unable to clip and knocked over the guy in front of me. No Joke.
I was never happy with how hard it was to clip and unclip

They where cheap and they worked for a while, but the performance went down the drain pretty quickly.

Strength:

Easy Clip in and out; more lighter (312gr) than Shimano XTR (325gr); Cheap for the weight; Very Stylish; Standard SPD that makes possible to almost everyone mounts the bike without need to change cleats. I changed from Shimano to X-Pedo and I'm using old cleats.

Weakness:

None so far.

Until now I believe they worth any € I gave for them. Excelent weight for the price (less than Shimano XTR that costs the double) very easy clip in-out. Very stillish pedals.

Strength:

Simple, Reliable

Weakness:

Technical - uses bushes instead of roller bearings

Although the xpedo pedals use bushes instead of roller bearings they have proved reliable as I have done 9-10 thousand kilometers now on these pedals with no problems. I do maintain them at least every 500k with fresh grease, of which i use the heaviest, thickest compund i could find to prevent wear. It's easy to do you just remove the cap on the outer edge of the pedal/ fill it with grease and screw it back in. This forces the grease through the pedal and out through the seal on the other side, from where you wipe it off. Have had no real problems, although my right foot has worn a groove in the right hand pedal due to my wierd offset pedalling style I unconciously use. This would get 5 if it used rollers.

Strength:

Weight, shed mud well. Price?

Weakness:

No inboard bearing. Low reliability.

This is an update to earlier review. My bike has been making a clicking sound, like a bb failure for 3-4 months. I never suspected the pedals as they were only 6 months old. Until today. I happened to try to wiggle the left pedal to check for play. Sure enough, there was enough play that I can wiggle it and feel it. The right pedal was worse!
I coulda actually hear the 'click' that has been haunting me on my climbs! I took the pedal apart(a very simple process) and to my surprise there is only one REAL bearing.
The end has a bearing under the cap and a retaining nut. The other end is a bushing bearing, and allows for no adjustment or replacement that I can tell. So I put on my old Nashbar clipless that I paid 20 bucks for in 1998, and they are still as tight as new and the clicking is gone. Even if xpedo GAVE me new pedals I wouldn't take them as it is a design flaw and the new pair will probably wear out as well. I thought I got a good price, but if the reliability is so bad I really got screwed.

Strength:

light, open design sheds mud, looks cool (so what)

Weakness:

none so far

I saw these on ebay and was intrigued by the open design - not as skeletal as eggbeaters, but definitely more open and lighter than the Shimano 520, (and butt cheap!) I took a chance on the SS version and have been very pleased. A bit easier to get into and out of than the Shimano. So far the pedal has sustained one hard impact- in a turn at pretty good speed, I hit a granite baby head directly on the pedal hard enough to lift the bike off the ground. To my surprise, the pedal showed no ill effect. So far, nothing to complain about.

Strength:

Easy enty and exit, adjustable, fairly light,



Weakness:

none

Very good pedals that can be had for a reasonable price. The entry and exit on the Xpedo's are as good as Shimano without the excess weight.

So far these pedals have been durable, are easy to keep clean. There performace in mud is acceptable but I try to avoid riding in mud anyway.

I have a pair of the Ti/Mag version on my hardtail and despite the negative reviews, they are also performing well.

HOLY RETENTION. There is absolutely no play in the pedals when riding. There are no unintentional clipouts. The price was perfect and the weight was too.

Weakness:

They look at little weak...havnt bent them yet......

I like there pedals. I know there are lighter ones out there but you cannot get them for this price. And its all about retention retention retention. Perfect for anyone.

A bunch of shimano stuff that always gave me random clipouts.
