Pros Stable, great power transfer, excellent traction while engaged, inexpensiveLightweight, low profile, available in 2 different axle lengthsLarge platform, downhill worthy, great tractionStable, confidence inspiring, versatile, attractiveVersatile, inexpensive, easy to use, adjustable tension
Cons Heavy, sharp pins are a hazard to everything but your shoeNarrow platform, expensive, not recommended for trail or all-mountain ridingHeavy, potentially dangerous pins, wider than mostHeavy, traction pins, vague engagement, expensiveHeavy for their size, painted surface can be slippery
Bottom Line Solid, stable and heavy, we found the control they offer top-notchThe top dog race pedal from Shimano that can punch above its classEnduro, downhill, or all-mountain worthy, this a great match with soft soled clipless shoesThis wide bodied contender is known for mud-shedding abilities and is at home racing or enduro ridingDelivering good performance at a very low price point, there are not many downsides to this pedal
