Pros: Lightweight. Alot easier to clip out of than my Shimano m530. Easiest pedals I've had when it comes to clipping out.
Cons: My feet have a harder time finding the sweet spot to clip in but not bad.
Recommendation: Easier to get out of than my shimano m530's that I got to begin with. I'd recommend these over the shimano's for beginners and any one else for that matter. They are really light on the feet.
Pros: Egg beater plus platform, whats not to love?
Cons: Cleat wear
Recommendation: These were my first clipless, and I am quite a fan, unless I become a weight weenie I doubt I will ever stray from these. Easy entry and exit, only time I failed to clip out it was my fault, not theirs. The platform is broad enough if you, like myself, sometimes need to make a run to the market and don't feel like putting on tap shoes.
Pros: Light Weight, Mud Shedding, Smooth Rotation, Small But Usable Platform
Cons: Confidence Curve, Cleat Wear
Recommendation: I replaced my platforms with these. It took a while to get the confidence factor up as I was concerned about being clipped in. Biggest problem is cleats wearing out from being walked on. Great overall!
Pros: Entry/exit ease (for a while). Lighweight. The small platform helps clip-in when starting on technical terrain.
Cons: Soft brass cleats wear out too fast.
Recommendation: My complaint with these isn't so much with the pedal as with the cleats. When new, the cleats can be tough to clip in. Once broken in, they're sweet. Unfortunately, the soft brass goes from broke in to too worn in far too short a time. In the end, I went back to my old Shimanos because I got tired of swapping out cleats.
