Strength:

excellent mud clearance
Light Weight
Easy Maintenance
Rebuild kit
Foot can float during ride, a must for you knee

Weakness:

Bearing, but!
1. There is a rebuild kit
2. Nothing is perfect. the benefits worth it

This is not for a shimano fans !!!

I just can't understand how can riders use other pedals than Crank Brothers
when using shimno, your knee does not have any float mechanism that this has
and yes, there is some bearing maintenance because of that. but Hey, i prefer to test it on the pedals
not on my knees... and this summarize everything !!!

Strength:

Light weight, fairly simple design, 4 points of entry, large platform for those pedal misses

Weakness:

The cages are week. Crushed one on the first ride. If you clip a rock, the pedal opens on the opposite side-dangerous!

I'd say skip this entire design. The 4 point entry and low weight are nice but I've had so many pairs of these things and each time I think they'll last, they just don't.

Strength:

good in the mud and fine sand, inexpensive at street pricing, for its size light weight, better than the first gen plastic body

Weakness:

bearing end play adjustment

I've been a fan of crank bros since the 1st gen eggbeaters. I was crushing the 1st gen candies both the wings and the platform. The alloy body on the new pedals is a nice upgrade but the bearing end play is set with the outer plug not the bearing retaining nut. I dented the outer end of the pedal which was no big deal with the old candys because I just tapped the plug back in, now that plug needs to be threaded in and adjusted. As soft as the 1st gen candys were I think I will toast these twice as fast.

Weight is not too bad...
Easy to get out of... TOO EASY!

Wayyyyyy to easy to get out of!
Crank Bros pedals DO NOT hold up in crashes as good as Shimano 5 series!

i tried these thinking they would replace mySimnao M540 pedala when Mountain biking.
i am going BACK. to My M540 pedals!

these DO look great, but its function ober form for me!

Strength:

Easy on clipping in and out, good support, looks

Weakness:

will come undone if you strike bottom of pedal logs or rocks

These were the first clipless pedals I have tried, I did not have a hard time getting use to unclipping from them. I have a season on them rode alot of different stuff with them and have no complaints. I have had a few good hits with them and they are holding up

Strength:

Easy in, easy out.
Secure feel with the platform to shoe contact.

Weakness:

Lighter would be nice, but decent at this price.

I only have 175 single track miles on these, but like them so far. They've handled a few smashes into rocks with only cosmetic damage. They've handled quick dismounts when needed, but have been solid on the downhills when bike control is critical.
When reading through the packaging, it does note that they are not recommended for those over 200lbs.(including hydration pack).

Strength:

Anodized orange looks great on my Flat black Fuel EX8

Weakness:

Difficult to clip in sometimes

Pedals look great!. No issues with uncliping. Clipping in can be difficult sometimes. I wear Bontrager Race shoes. The pedals float seems to be good. My old shimano pedals from 1997 seemed to be easier to clip in from what I remember. These pedals are not bad but next time I would buy shimano.

Look Bad Ass

Weakness:

They don't work.

I've been biking for over 20 years and I know what i like and what works. I recently built up a new bike and shop convinced to deviate on two components, one were Crank Bros pedals. I wanted Time ATACs. I've had Time pedals for years and never had a problem with them. After all,Crank Bros basically copied the design.
I am going back to Time. I have almost killed myself because my cleats come out of the pedals in the air on gnarly descents. I tried cleat spacers, cutting my sole away, changing right cleat to left shoe even using the Candy 3s. Nothing worked.
All these things do is look good.

Strength:

easy to use

Weakness:

bearing wore out. First ever pedal to have such a weak bearing set up

Won't buy these again. The pedals are literally falling apart. I have other pedals such as Look that are almost 20 years old and still in good shape. The regular SL is much better.
