Tanawtswrote a review of Crank Brothers Mallet 2 Pedal on September 21, 2011
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.
