Bring a mallet to a hammerfest.
Crank Brothers knew it had a good thing with the DH version of its Mallet pedals, frequently a fixture on the World Cup circuit, so it kept a lot of the same features when creating a new, enduro-specific version fittingly called the Mallet Enduro Pedals. The Mallet Enduros are constructed on a smaller, lighter platform compared to their burlier sibling, and new this year, Crank Brothers reassessed its entire product line from the inside-out in the hopes of improving overall longevity.
The Mallet Enduro provides secure purchase for your foot courtesy of its concave platform, with the coated polyurethane surface giving you room to fine-tune the placement of your foot on the pedal. This design also ensures you have a wide range of grip and reduces miscues when you're clipping in and out, and the chamfered edges help cut down harsh jolts from pedal strikes that throw off your cadence.
Anticipating the range of weather and trail conditions the pedals will see throughout their lifetime, Crank Brothers added new Enduro cartridge bearings, Igus bushings, and reinforcement in the form of an external seal to maintain debris-free smoothness over time. A mud-shedding, four-sided entry, six adjustable pins, and customizable float and release angles round out this capable new addition to the Mallet family.

Great pedals for enduro/trail riding
Great for enduro or more aggressive trail riding. Stability of flats with locked in clip less benefits
A bit of a hard transition from Shimano
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have been riding Shimano pedals for about 15 years but have heard wonderful things about the Mallets and decided to give it a go. I have had some instances where I had a hard time clipping out and fell over, Im sure that with time I will get used to them and this wont happen. The only thing that I dont like about them is there is not a definite 'click' when I engage the cleat, sometimes I have a hard time telling if I am clipped in or not at first. I have not used these pedals with regular shoes so not sure how they will ride not clipped in. All in all I am happy with them.
So far so good, lightweight fits my 5 tens and is very very blue. Add some color to your ride with these pedals
Awesome enduro pedals
I have used the Mallet 3 DH pedals on both my trail and DH bike, loving how they worked with my Five Ten sheos. I recently upgraded my trail bike to an enduro style, and wanted to give the Mallet Enduros a try. I couldn't be happier, they perform great and have awesome power transmission from shoe to pedal on the downhill.
New favorite MTB pedals
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After really liking my switch from Eggbeaters to Candies on my cyclocross bike, I decided to size-up on my MTB as well. Got a pair of these for my Bronson and love them.
The large target is really nice when needing to clip in quickly on rowdy trails. The platform is really stable when throwing my weight around on the bike and they never unclip accidentally. I've ridden with them in dusty and muddy conditions, shed mud as well as the rest of the Crank Brother's line.
Highly recommend as well!

Nice for enduro and heavy trail. Big target.
Great Trail Pedals
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is an initial review as I have only had these for a couple weeks. Also, these are my first experience with clipless pedals.
So far these have been great out on the trail. They have been plenty easy to get in and out of for a beginner and I haven't has any unintended releases or vice versa. I wanted something with a platform and these have been a great compromise for trail riding in terms of size and weight vs the full mallets. And it is nice to be able to just push on the pedal platform as I try to get my 2nd foot clipped. Grip has been highly adjustable with the variable tractions pads and adjustable pins. With my fiveten shoes I can set the pedal up so that there is very little resistance to unclipping, or run the pins out a bit so that it has less of a floaty feeling while clipped. I took it apart and construction seems pretty bomber. Haven't had any problems yet in the heavy mud and I think it will be difficult for any debris to make it into the spindle. Looks dead easy to take apart and service either way.
