Pretty new 50/50's waiting for a beating
Easier Ride with these
Bought these to swap out my SPD pedals while I get used to new terrain. I love not worrying about whether I'll get out of my pedals when I need to riding up a steep trail or through a rock garden. Having the flat pedals gives me a higher level of confidence to try things I wouldn't try riding my clipless pedals. My only comlpaint is the occasional slippage when climbing. Everyone once in a while, if I get in too low a gear, the rapid spin causes my foot to fall off the pedal while climbing. But that is mostly user error. So I'm getting better at picking my gears. Would highly recommend, especially for those new to mountain biking.
My boyfriend and I both have the same pedals, and yes it sounds ridiculous but it just so happens they match both of our Yeti 575 bikes quite well!! The pedals look really nice and even have a change out plate in gold if you prefer gold and black pedals. The pedals also come with longer pins if you feel the ones already installed are too short, but I did not find that necessary. The pedals are not only nice looking, but durable and can take a beating!! I have hit multiple rocks, stumps, and roots and they still look brand new!! I have Five Ten shoes with stealth rubber to use on the pedals and they grip fabulously!! Never once have I slipped off the pedal which is oh so important. I would definitely recommend these to a friend!
I got these a few weeks ago for DH and i'm shocked at how solid they are. Paired with five ten shoes, they grip as well as clips with the all-important ability to bail at high speeds. I've smashed them against rocks/roots numerous times at Keystone with no problems.. Great pedals...
I bought these for my Stumpjumper and worked great. With the large sturdy platform and studs my feet was well planted and cemented. It made a difference. As always ordering was fast and simple.
I just got these yesterday and threw them on to my whip. first words out of my mouth were, "F***ing Sweet!" Also I didn't realize that they come with another set of plates and spiked pins....once again...Fing sweet! Unless your looking to drop dimes for Twenty6's or some other Ti flats; the 5050xx will do work without compromising your consumer morales. Cheers and go ride!!!
Write your question here...ARE THESE $99.00...
Write your question here...ARE THESE $99.00 EACH OR FOR A PAIR?
For a pair.
These pedals are great and who could go wrong with raiders colors?? lights and durable. I have slammed them on rocks multiple times and they barely show any wear and tear.....
Ok if you only care about colors...
I can honestly say I have not seen many of these pedals last very long. The plates usually break, ok sure they give you extra plates, but those will break too. Almost everyone I know bought them because they were by far the best looking pedals on the market, but really none of them would buy again because they didn't last. If you really don't ride that hard, hardly every hit things, and love cool colors these would be great for you. Oh yeah and if you do decide to buy make sure to lock-tite the plate fastening screws BEFORE your first ride.
Tough, solid, stable
These bad boys are great. I've slammed them into a ton of stuff and they hold up real well, they come with extra plates if they break regardless. Wide platform feels really stable on the downhills, really grip well on smooth soled shoes. Not too heavy for climbs, all around great buy.
Super nice platforms.
I will have to concur with the rest of the reviews in that these are quite sturdy, durable, and have tons of options. They include replaceable parts with them so they are fully worth it so you can swap out the plates. Also, I have smashed them on rocks and so far just a couple of nicks on them. Buy some now!
Crank Brothers 5050 XX Pedal
Really strong, take a beating, very tacky surface...even in wet mud, lots of options for screw and pin placement and configuration. These things will last for years and even if you do bash the sh*# out of them, you can just replace the parts that need replacing.
Takes a beating!!
these are by far the best flat downhill pedals I have used. They are super sticky, even when wet with the right shoes. You can bash the hell out of them and replace what you break. Definitely worth the money.
They look great, they are sealed so bring on the wet trails and they are sticky. I have slammed them into several rocks and the changeable pieces are still sturdy and good to go. I really like them a lot and look forward to bashing the crap out of them even more.
Grant is NUTS!
These pedals are sweet. I have the red ones and they are super stylish. I scraped the crap out of them the first ride out on some gnarly slickrock ledges etc. and the color coded plates are still securely on. They are very sticky and were a great upgrade. I am impressed with how well they hold on. Crank Brothers did a great job with this one.
Buy the best!
Sick pedals. Pins are tough and long and hook up well with a soft gummy soled shoe. Sealed bearings give them a longer life than the lower end model and you can customize the colors!
Worth the Money
These Crank Brothers 5050 XX are great pedals. They come with extra plates (that don't match for some reason) and extra, longer pins. I agree that these are worth the money because of the sealed bearings. You can also order different plate kits to change the color. Overall I'm pretty stoked about these pedals.
Pretty nice pedal overall.
These pedals are pretty grippy and come with long pin replacements too. They actually do grip well, contrary to what Grant says, especially if you put the long pins in that they come with. Also, I bashed them on a few pedals over their first few rides and nothing but a few scratches, so they are super durable and the sealed bearings keep mud out. I think they are worth the money if you have the coin. Don't get the 5050X, this one is worth it if you are throwing down. The others will eventually seize up with mud/water exposure, but these will keep haulin' ass.
Crank Bro 5050
These pedals are POS. There crap. You would be better off using sticks on the side of the road in your cranks as pedals.
They have zero traction for your shoes, and the spindle either siezse up completely or are two loose to not avoid thrashing your shins. Also the color coded plates will fall off if you dont lock tight them.
