More durable but not worth the upgrade
- I've put it through the wringer
Having been through a lot of Eggbeaters from the first generation onwards I’m a big fan of the series. You get lightweight with ease of clipping in and out in all conditions. These are the best mtb pedal hands down. What most people don’t realize is that the cleats do take some time to break in which means you will want to twist well out of what you might consider the normal range until the cleats are broken in. This is normal, but if you’re coming from SPDs you may find yourself stuck on a few occasions if you haven’t made the mental adjustment. I have crashed many times with eggbeaters and they generally unclip as reliably as any other pedal system I’ve used over my 20+ years of riding clipless pedals. These pedals are actually heavier than the cheaper plastic bodied Candy and having ridden that pedal as well through all manner of conditions I don’t really consider this aluminum bodied version a huge upgrade. The composite body is pretty durable and protects the pedal well. Unlike the regular eggbeater I have never broken a wing whereas I have broken several wings on my normal eggbeaters hitting rocks and such. If you’re handy you can also upgrade the spindles yourself to Ti which gives you a cheap and significantly lighter pedal. On another note this might be considered a somewhat lower profile / lighter variation to the Mallett/enduro pedals so it might suit someone looking for a fairly bombproof light pedal but doesn’t need the bigger platform underfoot.

I'm Like, Eh
- I've used it several times
These aren't horrible, and I can see why somebody would dig them, but I just feel like they're not worth the price in comparison to so many other pedals out there. From what I can tell they seem pretty durable, but the included cleats seemed a bit lackluster. I've found pedals easier to use for much, much cheaper, that don't sacrifice anything cost. Yeah, that's going to be a no from me dog.
