pounds)Sturdy, strong...and way lite....felt them today...getting a pair next week

well the weight savings would be about 1/2 pound at most. 2 pounds is 900 grams and the heaviest pedals i have ever seen weigh 650-700 grams. the lightest flats around are the wellgo mags at around 400 grams. and they cost WAAAYYY less than those azonics. i doubt that ti spindles can handle jumpind/hucking anyway so i would pass if i were you.

200 bucks for pedals is way too much. Ti bends and is a flexy material. If you want something strong, I suggest sticking with chromo.

will I kill them????
i once bought a Ti spindle for my profile cranks (when i was about 50lbs lighter), and broke it in the second week trying to get a good snap out of the gate......

i ended up getting a good snap alright, just not the kind of snap i'd hoped for....

Ti sucks.....

Titanium Spindles

You know, you probably won't break them, but it's true that Ti does flex more than CroMo. This can result in much faster bearing wear... I have had Ti spindles in a few different pedal types over the years and if the axle isn't really well supported inside the pedal body the flex tends to crush cartridge bearings pretty quickly.

I am going to give the Xpedo MX-3 a try... 415g claimed weight, but with CroMo axles. Maybe they suck, but I will give them a go and see if I like them as much as my Wellgo jobs.
