Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first clipless shoe and so far I like them a lot. For the record, this is a very wide shoe for sure, which is good for me. I can rarely find shoes of any type wide enough for me because I wear a size 7.5 and have very wide feet. These are plenty roomy for me in the forefoot and toe box, so much so that I could probably have sized down a half size because there is plenty of room for your outside toes. This makes for a comfortable shoe for me but people with narrow feet might not like the play when unclipping.

They have a rigid sole compared to the sneakers I was wearing before, which feels more efficient, but still feel good to walk on trails in. I can get them very tight with the strap across the top so that they feel good when pulling up on the pedal. Construction seems very solid with plenty of rubber on the front and sides to protect the toes and shrug off impacts. They also seem nicely water resistant; I can just hose off the mud on the upper after a ride without saturating them.

There is a few degrees of the pedal stroke where they don't want to unclip because the beefy toe area hits my crank arm, though I don't think this is too big of a deal.

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.

Super Thin
5 5

I bought these thin pedals specifically to help compensate for my bikes low BB. They are very light and feel very solid and well made. I adjusted the nut on the outside of the axle enough so that they would spin more freely but didn't have any lateral play. We will see how that holds up in the long term. They are great so far, look awesome and feel plenty comfortable and grippy underfoot.
