We weren't familiar with these pedals before this review but they seem to sell like hot cakes online. Since it's our job to know all the latest and greatest, we figured maybe they were "something really cool that we don't even know about." Although we were fans of the gold and black Batman logo looks, these pedals were clearly not designed for anything we would consider to be actual mountain biking. One poorly placed pedal stroke resulted in a pretty considerable bend.
They are relatively lightweight at 385 grams and offered decent grip, but the open cage design was anything but robust. Made in China, the packaging offered comic relief, with botched attempts to appeal to western markets that were far superior to the performance of the pedals contained within. We're not even sure if RockBros was trying to make a quality product or just the illusion of one. We probably should have been more skeptical, considering printed right on the side of the box is "the appearance of a new upgrade." If you need a cheap pair of pedals to slap on your commuter, these might be worth a look. If you're hitting drops and smashing through rock gardens, we hope you're wearing a good full face helmet.
