Description

Eight-inch bike, full-face helmet, 5050 Pedals.

Customizable pin placement, replaceable parts—no wonder the Crank Brothers 5050 X Pedals have become a favorite among downhill racers and freeriders. You can pick just how many pins you want sticking out of these flats, so whether you prefer your pedals slick BMX style or like a bed of nails under your feet, the 5050 X Pedals have you covered. Plus, if you take a nasty digger and beat the crap out of your pedal on a rock (yeah, like that ever happens…) you can replace only the damaged part instead of dishing out for a whole new set of Crank Brothers.

Get what you pay for.

Its in the title, spend the extra money and get the XX 5050's. Had two pair of these and the bearings always die.

What's the difference between the 5050 X...

What's the difference between the 5050 X and the 5050 XX? Is it worth the 50% premium to buy the XX?

Responded on

xx has sealed bearings...Yes, its worth the extra $$

not for me at all

The replaceable plates sound like a good idea, until they decide to replace themselves in the middle of a trail. The bearings are horrible and horrible to try and overhaul if you don't strip the spindle in the first place. Over a decade in shops and these are in top of the worst pedals I've ever seen. Go buy some Atomlabs or DMRs instead.

Responded on

Seconded. I ran these pedals for about two rides. Didn't like the shape. Not concave enough. Heavy.
I've had the same set of Atomlab Trailkings on my BMX for 6 years, and the same set of Trailkings on my freeride bike for 4 years.

Crank Brothers 5050 X Pedal - works well, not the best pedals

I enjoy my Crank Brothers 5050 X Pedal, but would recommend going for the XXs. The bearings aren't sealed on these and if you ride where it gets wet, you will wish you had dropped the extra coin for the XXs. That being said, these pedals work well and I have never had my foot slip off. I usually ride in cross trainers, which have pretty good grip.

They aren't that light, and they are rather thick, so if you are looking for either of those characteristics, I would look elsewhere.

Any idea how easy these pedals are to break...

Any idea how easy these pedals are to break down and re-grease? I'm talking about cleaning out and re-greasing the ball bearings since they are not sealed.

Responded on

I've seen three or four people strip the threading on the spindle trying to break them down. I wouldn't recommend it. There are better pedals with sealed bearings for the price.

It's great to be flat!

Great first PAIR of flats for me. I'm not too concerned with the bearings at this point but we'll see how things work real soon; it won't stop raining here in CO... They paid for themselves after my first rides around Fruita- I bailed right when I needed to without any worries. Totally worth it if you need flats like me and are on a budget. Ladies, you can also change the plates to add a bit of girly steeze to your bike! I can't wait to get the green to match. Don't forget the shin guards!

They should not be your first choice

They are strong, and they come in pretty colors. You put them on your bike, and they work. That being said, if it gets wet, the bearings start to feel like crap - they are not sealed bearings. Unless you are running shoes with sticky soles, they do not have the best grip in the world. They are really heavy - you can pick up cheaper pedals that weigh 100g less than these. Best part of doing that is that you have money left over for beer.

Crank Brothers 5050 X Pedal

Decent Pedal. Mandatory after riding these a few times that you locktite everything on these, traction pins and hardware holding the pedal together. Must remember to grease the spindle and bearings as well. Other than that these are great pedals. I think too many people demand too much from products. You have to maintain your components, simple as that. Most issues come from the mantra ride it and forget it.

Two X's are better than one

If you have the option, drop the extra coin on the XX version of these pedals or look for something else. They work well enough, but unless you get them on sale, you pay a lot more than you should for what you get.

I've had two sets of these pedals on my two different bikes. They grip pretty well, and have a big enough platform to work with my big feet. The replaceable pins are awesome, and if you really go for broke and smash a pedal, you can replace the plates, which is nice. They look pretty cool, too.

The bad: They definitely have a lot of play in them. Both sets I've owned had this problem. They're a pain in the butt to rebuild - the star plug thing doesn't come out easily. They don't have sealed bearings - if you ride a lot where it's wet, they get rough pretty quick. They're also really heavy - about 200g heavier per pair than the Azonic 420s, and they cost the same amount.

Great Pedal, but...

Great DH/Freeride pedal, but if your looking for flats that you can ride a lot i would get the XX version of the 5050- it comes with sealed bearings which will increase the life of the pedal and will perform much better in muddy/wet conditions.

Going to have to say for the pair...

Best Answer Responded on

All pedals on our site, sold as a pair. Pedals on all sites I'd say, I've never seen any sold as a single ever.

do you need cleats to use these pedals?

No cleats needed, just use some plain old shoes, they will grip well with the pins on them.Are these single or a pair?

how about in sloppy rain and mud how will it handle?

Best Answer Responded on

Should be ok, but you might want something a little spikier. I would spend the extra cash and get the XX 5050 version of this pedal because the sealed barrings will increase the durrability and life of the pedal-for sure if your riding in muddy/wet conditions.FYI- You can buy longer pins for these pedals at most hardware stores. I've even used longer pins, strategically placed, for more traction in the wet. But watch your shins, longer pins = hamburger shin. KC

Stoked until they broke

I was stoked on these pedals until the right one seized up after a half season of use. Granted, it was damn hard use, but these are supposed to be DH pedals. I have lots of friends who run the XX version, however, and they don't have any problems. Sealed bearing make all the difference. You get what you pay for.

Give'er Go

Crank Brothers makes amazing stuff. Their pedals have never let me down and if they have, the Bros have replaced them quickly without any issues.
