The main thing is they look cool. Who cares about performance? They are blue, my bike is blue, done.
But on a more serious note, I haven't owned these very long but so far I'm really liking them. I have a helluva time getting clipped in sometimes, as I'm new to the whole clipless pedals thing, but once clipped in they provide a great platform for pedaling. Whether I'm in or out of the saddle I feel like my feet are locked in and maybe it's just a mental thing but I honestly feel like I have more power.
From what I've read they aren't very durable but I've only owned mine for 3 weeks so obviously don't know about that yet. And they're a bitch to get clipped into at times. Sometimes i hop on the bike and I clip right in, other times it takes a full minute to get my right foot clipped... left one seems much easier. But I may just have things adjusted wrong. I'll update once I've had them longer and am more used to them.
