Strength:

Nice flat grippy pedal and never lost my footing.

Weakness:

Having a pedal seize in 2 months and no warranty claim.

Left pedal seized in less than 2 months. Pulled pedal down to find that the axle was scored badly. Right pedal was also scored, but not as badly. Neither pedal had been submerged and the grease in both appeared to be OK. Returned pedals to shop, who contacted the Australian supplier. Supplier advised that given neither pedal axle was pitted, there was no warranty claim. Then emailed GB parent company with photos and I am still awaiting a reply.
I thought I was buying a quality product, looks like I brought an expensive wall decoration for my shed.

Strength:

Lightweight, good looking, incredible grip, durable pedal body

Weakness:

Threads for pins are weak, causing pins to rip out and strip upon impacts with rocks.

These pedals are incredibly grippy, the consequence being that your shins will get turned to hamburger if your shin contacts the pedal pins. Pedal body seems pretty durable. However, if you spend a fair bit of time in rock gardens, when you pedal strike the pins will frequently rip out of their threads, taking the threads with them (as well as bits and pieces of the pedal around the thread, making re-tapping frequently not an option). I've ridden about 50 hours on these pedals, and about a third of the pins are now missing. Contrasting to the Odyssey Twisted Pedals, which weren't as grippy but never lost pins; however on those the pedal cracked upon a hard pedal strike on a rock. In conclusion, great if you want incredible grip and don't spend a lot of time dealing with rocks, not so great if you value scar-free shins and play around in rock gardens.

Just perfect - pins still same length after many years riding at leats twice a week, hit so many rocks and not one problem...EVER. Can regrease in a second and therefore I will ever buy any other pedals.

Weakness:

ABSOLUTLY NONE...I once read they were small but I am 6'3" and wear 5-10's...big ones...no issues...why do magazines speak b**l????

Just get some...last pedals you will ever buy!

What a GRIP!!! Haven´t feel anything like that. Even if I take my mamas court shoes.. :o) Looks stylish too.

Weakness:

None, unless you make a mistake and it nails your shin. Now I have two beautiful round scars below my knee :o)

Maybe littlebit pricey, but its worth it. Thru them you can feel you are tied up with your bike, like anything else..

Strength:

Grippy. Foot friendly. Tough as nails. Perfect for rocky Sydney trails where you must bail out occasionally. I use clip ins for races and V12's for fun.

Weakness:

None as long as you clean them out once a year.

I have used these pedals for over five years. Service them once a year i.e. open, clean and grease -- the design is elegant simplicity with one sealed bearing takes most of the load. They keep on going on and on. They grip better than any thing else I or my mates have have used. Go really well with five ten shoes. I have slammed them into rocks dislodging a pin but you just screw in a new pin. Wear shin guards or else expect to get stitches in your shins like one of my mates.

GRIP on your foot when you step on them!!! This is what you pay for, this is what you get.

STRENGTH!!! Demolished a pedal lately on the rocks? Not these puppies. They're in for rock demolition!

Weakness:

bearings could be improved for spinnies...

GRIPPPPPpppyyyy!!!

Just 1 bar better than V8s, these V12s are ultimate step ons if pedal slip is something you don't want to experience. Beware of pedal bites on the shin though.

Strength:

Grippy, light, abuseable, decent price. Lots of colors if you care about that silliness. I have two MAG sets.

Weakness:

Creaky outer bushing present in both sets used. Hollow studs take hideous core samples of shin bone and skin like no other I've tried. That's not really as much of a weakness as it is a warning. Pack some butterflys in your post-ride gear bag.

Nice pedals for a decent price. You can get them pretty cheap if you shop around. Grippy wide surface, even when wet or muddy. I've read other reviews here about the creaking from the outside bushings. Defiantely needs improvement here. But they still work spot on. Some outer bearings would make for a great pedal. Little hollow studs really can wreck your shins with wounds that take months to button up. But you want grip, you gotta pay for it somewhere. I'll give 'em a B+ overall. A+ if they remedy the outer bushing problem, as regreasing that area doesn't seem to help much.
