- Stable and descent grip
- Reliable lock and release
- Good platform when clipped in
- Easy to rebuild
- Insert and release angle takes a bit to get used to
- Doesn't feel great riding unclipped
A good pedal for anyone looking for a AM/DH friendly clipless pedal. They feel great when your clipped in and the addition of the platform makes you feel stable. It also makes the pedal feel more substantial (compared to the plain CB Eggbeater).
I was hoping that they would ride well without being clipped in but unfortunately not your feet barely reach the pins and you can feel the mechanism on the arch of your foot.
It is nice to have the platform when you don't have time to clip in, there's a hairy section that you don't want to be clipped in for or if you missed clipping in but I wouldn't be riding it like a traditional flat pedal any other time outside of these situations.
One major downside I guess is the price of the pedals, especially considering you have to purchase a pair of clipless shoes, if you don't already own some that is.
