Strength:

Cheap, grippy and relatively light

Weakness:

No selaed bearings, pins usually pop out and deform the pedal enough so you cant repin

It's tough to find pedals this good for so little. Sure the bearings aren't sealed...(was upset that Azonic initially advertised them as sealed) just means if they get rough you need to re-grease (its easy). Yeah the pins can get knocked out if you bash a rock hard enough, same thing can happen on the pricey pedals. But if you're on a budget and are ok with losing a pin or two these are great lighter, grippy pedals. Ive had em for years and still dont hesitate to repurchase or recommend. Ride em hard!
I replaced my 1st pair after years of riding not because the pins fell out but because they got dull. Rounded off after years of happy riding. Pedals are still on the backup bike. In fact I found that cutting off the lugs on my favorite mt bike shoes where the pedals normally sat resolved the issues giving me a much more stable feel on all my bikes.

These pedals are light, cheap, and the pins are easily replaced, but the don't have enough traction for serious downhill. I use them for dirt jumping and mountaincross. Also, the bearings aren't terribly smooth, but that doesn't really matter.

Strength:

Light

Weakness:

Bearings are advertised as being cartridge and clearly are not. in fact the bearings felt tight notchy and dry out of the box. After 6 months of light riding they began to creak and get worse until there was lots of play in them. Its not just my pedals either, my mate bought some and they were the same straight out of the box.

And they look crap. they are advertised as being natural magnesium colour, so why paint them when they are already magnesium? Duh!

If you want some cheap flat pedals with low quality bearings that wear out as soon as you take them out of the box then get these pedals.

Do yourself a favour and spend the extra cash and get some quality products instead.

Azonic are happy to replace them under wartranty but i am hoping to get A-Frames instead. Watch out for the review about them.

Strength:

Quite grippy, good size, seem quite strong

Weakness:

Weight, bearings

What is all this about "super-light" - these weigh A TON! Pick up some V8s and tell me I'm wrong. Also as said elsewhere on this page, they are not sealed bearing and I don't believe the body is made of magnesium either. Emailed azonic who said they would change the description on their website - that was atleast a month ago. If anyone knows what the american equivalent of the trading standards council is, give me a shout and I'll make a complaint.

These are crap - weigh about the same as a hippo, crap bearing, not that grippy either - get some V8s and don't bother with these - RIP OFF AT HALF THE PRICE.

Strength:

Weakness:

Aluminum outer spindle caps instead of the black plastic covers would be a nice touch...such as the Azonic A-Frames & the natural Magnesium color.


Sweet pedals with set screws(traction pins), that are three times the size of the ones used with the Shimano pedal. They weigh less than the MX pedals as well and the price...well go to www.jensonusa.com and grab them for $27.00
