Cons Limited foot mobility, almost too much gripVery expensive, not very versatile, difficult compatibility with some cranksSmaller platform and only 8 traction pins, no traction pins along the spindleLower grip, wide traction pins, too many traction pins for their size, top loading pinsSmall-ish platform, some may want more grip, slight hump underfoot at axle
Bottom Line These pedals offer unrivaled performance paired with a spectacular price tagAwesome combo of lightweight and large platform, enduro lovers will dig this grippy modelLess-expensive flat pedal option for those who like to put their equipment to the testWithout tons of grip, these cool-looking pedals are a solid freeride optionNo matter where you ride or what you ride, these pedals have you covered
