    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.

    Pros
    - Stable and descent grip
    - Reliable lock and release
    - Good platform when clipped in
    - Easy to rebuild

    Cons
    - Insert and release angle takes a bit to get used to
    - Doesn't feel great riding unclipped

    I'd recommend this for those that may ride their bikes on campuses or the like, without needing specialize shoes.

    Pros
    Great if you want to have clipless and still use street shoes. Strong, Easy in/out, and you can unclip for technical parts and still have good footing. The eggbeater clips allow mud to be pushed through so that it doesn't pack in. Cleans much easier.

    Cons
    Heavy. When riding without clipping it you tend to roll a little.

    These are my first clipless pedals so I have nothing to compare them to. But, I have NO intention of ever going without these again! Just ordered some Candy's for my road bike!

    Pros
    Large platform, easy in and easy out, sexy looking

    Cons
    The paint/color on the platform is wearing already!

    Pros
    The best for All Mountain riding. Sometimes I feel like unclipping on some technical parts and can do this with these pedal. Best of both worlds.

    Cons
    Takes some getting used too.

    I bought them mainly because I want to unclip when I come across some gnarly terrain and they work well unclipped, so I'm happy with them. But the best best thing with these is the exit. Compared to my Shimanos, the exit is super smooth and natural. Like I said though, I sometimes don't hear that "snap" clipping in, leaving me a bit weary and having to pull up just to make sure I'm in. Seems to be only on my left foot too...? I also like the stability of the larger pedal. The weight is not an issue for me.

    Pros
    Goos stability, comfortable not clipped in, really nice exit.

    Cons
    Don't get that "click" every time I clip in.

    Highly recommend for anyone wanting to swing both ways. Platform is very grabby when running unclipped, eggbeater holds reliably - I've yet to have an accidental unclip, which I cannot say for the shimanos I ran prior to these, and I've also not slipped off unclipped with my cleated shoes.

    A HUGE improvement over the shimano's I used to run.

    Pros
    Reliable release.
    Reliable hold.
    Excellent platform when unclipped.
    Usable platform with street shoes.

    Cons
    Somewhat vague feeling when clipping in.
    Slightly uncomfortable and ever so slight tendency to roll due to the eggbeater when wearing street shoes.
