Candy is dandy.

Split the difference between flats and eggbeaters with the Crank Brothers Candy 1 Pedals, which use a composite body and stamped steel wings to add surface area to the pedal body for more pedal power and control on quick descents. The Candy 1 Pedals offer customizable release values between 15 and 20 degrees, so you can set them up just the way you like them and, at just 272 grams per pair, they'll add way less weight to your bike than those bulky flats you've been riding.

Perfectly Adequate

Candy pedals are tough to beat for the price. Definitely not the most long term reliability in the game, but they do the trick for a season or two.

Candy is a strippers name

    And let's hope that candy is as good a value as these pedals for your sake. I threw these bad boys on my stump jumper and oh no I was like a kid in a candy shop (get it?) they hold on tight to the cleats but when you're ready they're super easy to get out of. The float is nice, or not if that's your thing it doesn't matter because adjusting it is super easy. Durability? Yes, I slammed these on rocks, ripped my feet off of them from falling and even shut one in a car door. First time I ride these pedals it was muddy and nasty and pouring down rain and afterwards they where really easy to take apart and clean. Jumps? You best believe it, lightweight? Yeah and for a good price.

    Low weight, high function--great value.

    I swtiched all my bikes from shimano SPDs a couple years ago to crank brothers pedals... Egg beaters (stainless) and now these new 2016 Candy's. I never had any issues with the prior generation bearings but won't complain about the apparent upgrade to the internals on the 2016 units. My fat bike spent all winter with the new 'double shot' pedals and I've got some AZ bikepack and Moab rides on these new candy and both are performing flawlessly.

    Great pedals for the price!

    This is my first time running a clipless setup on my mountain bike. I was always super hesitant about going clipless on my mountain bike. I was most worried about crashing really hard(I do that alot) while still being attached to my bike. The reason I decided to go clipless was because I wasn't feeling super comfortable on really technical down hill trails. I was wearing beat up old Vans. My toes would curl over the front of the pedal like I was hanging or for dear life. I was.

    So far, crashing has been a non-issue. Anytime I have crashed or come close to crashing I have either been able to get out of the pedals or I have come out automatically. The biggest advantage I have noticed is how stable I feel on the bike. I feel like I am able to push myself so much further on the bike because I know that a random rock won't throw my feet out of place. I feel like I am much more nimble on the bike.

    The pedals are of a great build quality as well. I went with the Candy 1's, the only plastic version, because they were the cheapest and I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy riding clipless. I was very pleasantly surprised by the build quality and will for sure continue riding clipless

    I'm new to the clips and these were a great way to get started. I like the size of the composite platform vs. egg-beater type pedals...once I got used to it, clipping in is easy and the extra surface area seems to give me a solid balanced feel on the trail. Compared to the newer Candys, I see little difference other than the outstanding price, which allows me to put a little more money toward the shoes. Great product for a great price.

    Best pedal for price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I originally got these pedals to get into XC but I have now expanded my Crank Brothers clipless collection because of them. I do not see much of difference between the candy 1 and 2 other than the plastic vs metal but I prefer the plastic as it is a little more forgiving on the shins during rougher times. I have even put these pedals on a road bike and they perform just as well. Again I would go with the candy 1 over the 2 due performance being about the same with a much lower price.
