Crank Brothers have re-designed their pedal line for 2010 in the pursuit of better functionality and durability. The most obvious move toward durability with the Candy 3 is the two-piece machined aluminum body. It is of course more durable than the previous resin body, but surprisingly comes without weight penalty. It also still provides that bit of extra platform over the Eggbeater that Candy users have come to love. The pedals are also easily rebuildable. Cartridge outer bearing with needle inner bearing for a long smooth life. Forged scm435 chromoly steel spindle. Cast steel wings. 300 series stainless steel spring. Includes premium brass cleats. Compatible with SPD style two-bolt shoes. 309 grams per pair.

Geat Pedal

I have used Crank Brothers Candy pedals on my two road bikes and cyclocross bike for over 10 years. I wear Sidi Dominator MTN bike shoes and I find these pedals to be easy to clip in and out of, work great with my shoes, have the right amount of float for me, look good, and are easy to maintain. In all honesty I have found these pedals to be so good that I have never wanted to venture into other pedals. I wear mountain bike shoes as they are more functional when off the bike in all conditions.

Quality Pedal - Easy To Clip Out

I have been riding these pedals for about a month, several days a week. Initial quality is good. No problems yet. They are just like any pedal and you have to learn how to clip in. Clipping out is the easiest of the five or so types of pedals that I have used. I'm using them with Sidi Dominator Fit LTD and Crank Brothers Shoe Shield

Great pedals offered in cool colors.

This is a good basic no frills pedals. I has some float. No adjustments to fiddle with. It is offered in some cool colors. It has held up much better than the Candy 2. I would definitely recommend this pedal for most every use except long road rides and racing as it has a small surface area and it is not very light.

Better than the egg beaters but definitely heavier.

I've ridden these well over 10 times now and have to say the engagement is way better than my egg beaters. They are definitely more durable but it come with a weight penalty. Overall I'm pretty happy!

Excellent Overall Pedal

Easy to clip in & out. The platforms give a better feel than just the eggbeaters. Solid design even with the light weight and they still look great. I have used these for a year and they are still going strong. A big increase in $$$ from candy-1, but BTD offers a very competitive price on these. I would not recommend using regular shoes at any time with these pedals. If you're using on a commuter, look at shimano dual-platform. if crank bros starts to make a dual-platform, i'll be the first to consider !!

Got to have good pedals

I ride 2,000 milesyear for pleasure, health, endorphins and fresh air. Got to have good pedals. Crank Bros. Candy 3 are my favorite for durability and maintenance. The platforms are nice to have when jumping on the pedal when the light turns green. BikeTiresDirect has good price, flawless service. Thanks for that! Spend more time riding, whew, who!

Not Bad

I've been using these pedals on my CX commuter, they have a pretty neat design and are extremely easy to clip and the weigh is a hard-to-beat factor.

I have found only two disadvantages

1) Spring tension can not be adjusted.

2) Egg beater mechanism is particularly annoying when using regular shoes (It's always rotating and moving your feet back and forth).

As a commuter you may need to use regular shoes for short distances once in a while.

If you want to be able to ride your bike on regular shoes I would recommend you to go for a SPD. Otherwise you will be fine.

easy to get in and out, light, durable, sexy and cheap compared to the other pedals

Great value, lightweight, not super expensive and they work. Easy to get in and out of, light action on the pedals. They seems durable, I have hit them pretty hard on some rock and no wear or issues. I will buy these again.

Does it's job. Holds your foot in when it's supposed to, releases when you need it to. Reltaively light weight and rugged.

I bought these for my mountain bike. For my road and cross bikes I use eggbeaters. I was running eggbeaters on my mtn bike until I broke one. I like the extra stability the platform on the Candy's adds for mountain biking. The platform also helps guard the cage from rocks that can bendbreak it or cause it to release. The Candy 3 seem a bit better built than previous generations (less play).

Great pedals.

These pedals are great. I own multiple pairs. My feet stay connected for as long as I want and yet there's a bit of float which makes things a bit easier on my knees. They work equally well on a mountain bike out on the trails and a commuter bike in the city.

The only downside is that my shoes tend to rub the 3 off relatively quickly. Just cosmetic.

A good product

This is the third set of Candy pedals that I have because of now owning three bikes. They work really well. They have double sided entry and with the recessed cleat you can easily walk when not riding.

Best commuter pedal ever

18 miles a day and these are going strong. Easy as pie to clip in and out of, never an adjustment. Good float for my knees. Never a pre-release. Should be a go to for a commuter or a first time clipless pedal purchaser.

First Crank Bros. - solid

These are I think the easiest, most reliable inout SPD-style pedals I've tried on my road bike. I prefer a MTB pedal because I like to walk around wo falling on my ass, as most road (Look-style) pedals will do. Great construction & durability. I expect bearings will never be an issue. First 1,000 miles all good. Why can't everything be this solid?

Finally, aluminum and bearings

For better or worse, I'm pretty much stuck with Crank Bros. pedals. I grew attached to the mud shedding and then got used to the feel. I like the engagement on Crank Bros. pedals more than Time ATAC and Look's Quarz. They're just very natural to me now, and once you have cleats on shoes for more than a year and pedals on multiple bikes, it's tough to turn that ship around.

I liked the minimal pedal body of the old plastic Candy-except the part where the plastic body (I think I'm supposed to be calling it "composite") got pummeled into an ugly plastic ball after a few dozen trips through rock gardens. (Actually, the first thing to go wrong was always the end caps falling out, which led to crud getting into the pedal.) It's much better so see an aluminum body and some actual ball bearings in there now-two improvements that make this a much better all-around pedal.

Have to see how many punches the aluminum body can take, and what bearing life is like after a year, but at least bearings give you options for experimentation that a plastic sleeve just doesn't. Still a pretty great-feeling pedal and one of the easiest to clip onto and out of.

Great Pedals

I replaced a pair of 3 yr old pair of Candys (with the plastic/composite wings) with these new Candy 3's. So far, I really like the new design. They seem to feel more solid, and more durable while not be much heavier. I ride typical east coast rocky, rooty, singletrack and they have held up to rock strikes, etc, without any problems.

Some people knock Crank Brothers for durability, but this is my 3rd pair of Candy's and I've never had problems with them.

Bought them for the durability and not disappointed.

Had the original candy pedals and bent the egg beater part which lead to drag on the spindle shaft. I was unable to straighten the bent eggbeater for smooth operation. I bought these as a replacement and the durability factor is appreciated even with the weight gain. Durability usually comes at a cost.
