April 23, 2017
Model/Year: Eggbeater 3

Pros: Quite light, intuitive clip in and release, no issues with mud. I did the "don't ever do that" and mounted a pair just before an early season week in Moab. They were awesome! Even when attempting impossible climbs with the ridiculous traction on Slickrock, I never pre-released, and never had an issue getting out. It was pretty easy getting in from stopped on technical climbs. Great purchase!

Cons: Nasty when going for a short commute in regular shoes. A click in platform would be nice.

Recommendation: Serious pedals for serious riders. A stiff soled shoe is a must.

Pros: Great 3 sided easy clip in

Cons: Hard to find where to clip into

Recommendation: Good baseline cleags

March 21, 2016
Pros: Mud/snow/ice/dirt shedding is unmatched, lightweight, easy in/out

Cons: Not a solid connection, can create hot points, can be hard to find with your cleat

Recommendation: These are great for winter rides where you might be on and off often and need to clear snow and debris, but otherwise the stronger platform and better connection of either Candys or SPDs are better for your money.

March 15, 2016
Pros: Mud and snow shedding
4 sided clip in

Cons: non existent platform
extreme float

Recommendation: I ran these for about 6 months and they were the easiest pedals on knees that i used because of the float. down side to that was I felt like my foot was going to unclip at any given moment. After these I switched to flats and haven't looked back

March 14, 2016
Pros: Easy to clip in and out, light, and always free of mud

Cons: Lack of support around cleat can lead to hot points, can be difficult to recognize whether or not your cleats have engaged

Recommendation: Great for muddy situations, but consider the added support of Candies

Pros: Lightweight, nice looking.

Cons: No platform for tech and without spread pressure I got hotspots near the cleat after only a few miles. Hotspots I never got in other systems.

Model/Year: 2007

Pros: Great pedals, very strong, light weights, keep you connected to the bike. don't hold mud, and easy to clean

Cons: Pedal can be hard to get in and out of at times. You have to plan ahead if you want to get out of the pedals. Non-adjustable tension

Recommendation: High recommended.

October 7, 2014
Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Lightweight
Easy engagement
lot's of float
looks sexy

Cons: The "C" series tends to gum up with dirt quite easily.

Recommendation: Plastic dust caps will meld with pedal body making them impossible to service. Request titanium dust caps from CrankBrothers (they will send for free) and replace them as soon as you buy the pedal.

Model/Year: 2015

Pros: light weight, easy to get in and out of, Brass cleats will not rust

Cons: allows a lot of float, maybe too much for some people and the tension is not adjustable

Recommendation: I love these pedals I like a lot of float these pedals can do that but still feel secure, and great in the mud and rain.
