Pros Chamfered edges glance off rocks, cold forged, 12mm slim profile, good foot engagement, cool colorsTremendous amount of grip, reasonable price tag, easy to service, versatile, large platformUnshakeable grip, huge platform, lightweight, hidden grease port, angled traction pins, double concaveExcellent price point, well-rounded performance, service kits readily availableHigh grip, strong build, reasonable price
Cons Required service almost immediately, large inboard bearing may cause awkward foot position, we missed the grub screws from previous versionsLimited foot mobility, almost too much gripVery expensive, not very versatile, difficult compatibility with some cranksConvex shape might be polarizing, not the grippiestHard to relocate foot mid-decent, heavy if you do a lot of pedaling, not ideal for dirt jumping
