Needed something for the Cross bike and read all of the reviews I could find. Have ridden many miles and two mid-fest gravel races.
Pedals performed flawlessly in the mud. Smooth and secure.
I like these pedals, but, was surprised at how easy they bend if you hit a rock. two of the four wings are softer metal.
A better value would be the eggbeater 3, which has all four wings made of stronger metal, and better bearings.
I bent mine after 2 hours of riding, and fortunately, I could bend them back into shape, but, I have older eggbeaters that I have used for years that have been mashed against rocks hundreds of times and never did bend.
O the plus side, crankborthers offered to repair them, and even better, to replace the weaker wings with the harder metal for a small upgrade fee. Nice.
