    Crampon Mountain - Pretty damn killer pedals

    When I first got these I found them comfortable but maybe not quite grippy enough.. coming off a set of RF Atlas that were just not holding up.

    I eventually moved on to a set of DMR Vaults which seem to be a favorite for grip and durability. They are grippy, so much so that I had to neuter the pin setup. Unfortunately they succumbed to rock strikes as well with a cracked frame and stripped pin threads.

    Rather than spend another 150 bucks I decided to give the Crampons another shot. Glad I did.

    They really are bombproof pedals and I have grown to appreciate the level of comfort and grip they provide. It's a different feel than a super aggressive concave pedals out there but once you adjust they are just super functional.

    My only real complaint is that because your foot tends to drape over the front a bit you do have to watch out for catching the toes a little more.

    I've been smashing the crap out of these things and that machined body is so durable and provides a super solid base for the pins.

    Destroyed a crank arm this weekend clipping a big rock with the pedal.. pedal seems fine.

    Good shit.

    Nice write up. My experiences are very similar.

    I've had the original silver crampons for over a year now. Tough as nails. The colour hides the whacks and scratches very well. They get serviced when ever a little play starts to show, which is roughly on a 3 month basis, then as good as new.

    I too have a little toe hang over, only left side. I never felt it's a fault of the pedal - just mostly because of the way I am. I needs to get me them mountain ones next.

    Good shit for sure.

    Any issues with the grub screw style pins? My Nukeproof pedals have them and I feel like I lose a bunch of pins (even with locktite) each time I ride Whistler, or else they get bent over.

    No issues here, or anything I'd consider issues.

    I've replaced a few. Mostly just used pliers to unscrew the ones that didn't have an allen head remaining. I think one or two have just come out but always able to screw another back in. Pin loss or distruction is just part of riding.
