Crank Brothers Mallet 2 Pedal $89.95
You're a waffler. For years people have been telling you to 'make up your friggin' mind already!' Crank Brothers takes a different approach. The Mallet 2 says 'waffle away.' The Mallet can be ridden with or without cleats so you can clip in when you feel like clipping in, ride flats-style when you want to, or ride with one foot clipped in and one foot flying free if that's your thing.
- Tough Cro-Moly spindle for long-lasting performance
- Aluminum platform is durable and lightweight
- 12 8mm set screws per pedal for traction
- Beefy carbon steel wings can take a beating

Can you feel the "clip in" part of the pedal when you are wearing non-clip in shoes?

Crank Brothers have been my go to pedal for quite some time now. These platform style pedals are awesome for more area to use to "crank" on. The Mallet 2 is a clipless pedal that feels like a flat pedal while clipped in. With these pedals , you get a secure feeling of no float and feeling like you are glued to a large platform. With these pedals you get that feeling you have a bit better pedaling efficiency. These are not flat, they do have a bulge from the egg beater. These can come in handy with single speeds and when you may not always want to be clipped in.

Is the recessed cleat area on the Louis Garneau Terra MTB shoes too deep for the actual cleat to clip into these? Does the tread on either side of the cleat on the shoes get in the way of clipping in?
I do not own the shoes you mention, but from what I see on google image they look like they should work just fine. I use these pedals with my sixsixone MTB shoes and have never had a problem clipping in, and they also have some fairly deep tread on them.
attach is a picture showing my shoes with the cleat on them. as you can see the cleat is about level with the shoes outer tread.
Thanks! I ended up ordering the Terra shoes and they work great with this pedal when you install the clips with the shim that is included.
Awesome, I have never had a problem with Crank bro's stuff not integrating, so I would have been very surprised if they didn't fit.
I am new to all of this, are these pedals...
I am new to all of this, are these pedals compatible with Performance CM401 Mountain Bike shoes and what type of cleat should I get for these pedals?
if your Performance CM401 fit SPD cleats they will fit these. there of the 2 bolt design
and mallets come with a set of cleats
Excellent Clipless platform
I ride All Mountain, that means Up, Up, Down, Down, and Left, Right, Left, Right.
There are 3 important factors for me in a clipless pedal:
#1 Must not clog
#2 Must be able to bash on rocks
#3 Must provide a platform for riding downhill in technical sections.
I have been very curious about Crack Brothers for a long time, having always been a Shimano guy.
I am happy to report that the Mallet 2 is the just the right pedal for All Mountain trekking.
I need to be able to use my upstroke to help in the long sections and uphill, I need the platform for some of the more hairy downhill sections, and I need it not to clog up on me when things get wet and muddy.
If you are looking for a great pedal that will hold on to you in the flats and the ups, but lets you stand up with confedence when bombing down, this is the one for you.
Ok, I'm a waffler. I have egg beaters, they're great. But I bought some cheap platforms for jibbing around town, and found it frustrating that I didn't have clips, or was having to wrench to different pedals. So I decided to try these Mallets - I just received them, great price, perfect condition, a day earlier than expected (which is the norm for HucknRoll orders, love you guys!) I paired them up with some new SixSixOne sneakers with the cleat, this is an AWESOME system. I'll still keep my egg beaters and race shoes for serious days, but now I can jib, run to the mailbox, tool around downtown - in street shoes, and still clip in for proper pedal power when it's time to get home. I've never been disappointed in Crank Brother products - I run cobalt wheels and their pedals too, and I can already see that this new pedal won't let me down. I've converted several Shimano users to Crank Bro - the clips are simpler, more rugged, and they work better - release right every time when they need to, and don't release when they shouldn't. Great product, great quality, great innovation, and for HucknRoll, great service. Buy these, you'll love them.
