At first I loved these pedals. I am probably a cross country/enduro style rider. I love the up as much as the down and I never shuttle and pedal everything I ride. But the riding where I live can be steep and gnarly so I wanted a pedal like this with more platform to comfortably ride not clipped in on the tough descents. In that regard this pedal was amazing. But after a few months of use, everything started falling apart, bearings, springs, etc...and warranty from time sucked. Look for something more durable is my advice.
