Cons Smaller platform and only 8 traction pins, no traction pins along the spindleLimited 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
