Crank Brothers Mallet 3 Pedal $119.95
A pedal with room to spread your wings.
The Crank Brothers Mallet 3 Pedal lets you clip in or not, depending on what type of riding you're doing that day. The broad platform gives you plenty of stability for freeride and DH riding, while the titanium wings bring the weight down so you can use the Mallet for all-mountain riding.
- Tough Cro-Moly spindle for long-lasting performance
- Aluminum platform is durable and lightweight
- 12 8mm set screws per pedal for traction
- Titanium wings reduce weight while adding durability
What community has to say
Awesome pedals, until they aren't
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Crank Bros. clipless concept it awesome. Its easy to get into and out of, and it sheds mud. These pedals ride great, but they simply don't have the durability to last a full season of shredding. I've had broken wings, snapped spindles, and seized bearings that refused extraction, after I got a rebuild kit. For a similar ride, but bombproof construction, try TIME.
The best of both worlds
I had to wait a few months for these pedals to get restocked. Swoop them up when they become available. Supplies are limited.
Not as good as prior generation
The current generation of Mallet 3's dont have the grip and holding power as the previous version. I find myself inadvertently coming up clipped when I never had the issue with the previous model. In all I think that the Crank Brothers system is superior to the SPD design because there are more exit options.
I think the new downhill pedals look like winners because they are much closer to the last generation design, I wish I had held off a couple more months and got the downhill pedal.
