Recommendation: My bike came with these pedals on it already but I changed them out. I don't like riding clipless because of the terrain I go on but if I were to switch back from platform pedals I would definitely choose something from the Candy line.
Pros: Replaced egg beaters C with Candy C's for more of a platform when riding more technical trails and don't want to be clipped in. I like the Crank Bros 4 sided entry so tried these and found them to be relatively light, very functional and reasonably priced (~$50). I also like the available colors and overall looks on the bike.
Cons: None yet
Recommendation: Good value for the money and my favorite when compared to egg beaters and mallet
Pros: Easy to find without looking. Impervious to mud and ice.
Recommendation: I replaced a set of egg beaters with the Candy C. Having some pedal to step on is a big plus. Easy to pedal without clipping in. Good for semi-technichal downhill, where you might want to clip in and out. Very reasonably priced.
Pros: Price (got it on sale)
Bright Yellow Color
Ease of use
Cons: Easily Scratched
Recommendation: Took me a few rides (and falls) to get used to them, but now they work really great. The platforms are a bit too small though when i don't feel comfortable enough to clip-in while coming down a technical downhill section. makes me kinda wish i got the mallets instead. but other than that, i love them. AND THEY'RE YELLOW!
