Crankbrothers Candy 2 Pedals are a serious bit of eye candy. The new two-piece aluminum body is a gorgeous hunk of CNC machined and ano'ed bicycle art -- we're suckers for it. It's stronger, more durable, and just as light as the old resin body of the older Candy pedals. And as usual, the Candy 2 body gives you a bigger target to hit than their Eggbeaters when you want to get clipped into the pedals in a hurry, and it offers up more support for your shoes and feet.
Just like the Eggbeaters, the Candy 2 Pedals give you 6° of float and come with two-bolt cleats that fit any mountain bike shoes. The brass cleats are slightly asymmetrical. So depending on which foot you install the marked cleat -- right or left, you'll get either a 15° or 20° release angle. Another benefit of Crankbrothers' use of brass for the cleat is that they're slightly softer than the steel used in the retention system of the pedals. This ensures that the inexpensive and easy to replace cleats will wear out before your spendy pedal parts.
And thinking of your investment, Crankbrothers designs their pedals to be easily serviced. They can be disassembled, re-greased, and bolted back together in just a few minutes. They have a forged chromoly spindle, stamped and plated steel retention wings, and a stainless steel retention spring. The pedal body spins on Crankbrothers' long proven bushing/cartridge bearing system.
Crankbrothers Candy 2 Pedals come in Orange and Silver. They include the cleats, two shims to protect your shoes, and all the necessary cleat hardware for installation.
