Crampons v's Crampon Ultimate
For the past few months I've been unclipped after about 7 years of being locked down. Did a enduro a couple of weeks ago and for some reason at the last moment I clipped back in. Now I'm back on the platform program, convinced that for the type of riding platforms are the way to go.
So lets hear about it, undoubtedly these pedals are up there with the best available . On paper its pretty clear what the differences are but I'd like to hear from those who have had time on them both. Is one better than the other, or do they both offer a unique quality that the other is missing? What's the maintenance like? Let it all out!
Here's is a photo comparison of our two pedals...
We are only a few weeks away from having the Ultimates back in stock!!!
Will purple be in that shipment? Looking for a new set for the DJ frame.

I haven't spent much time on the Crampons, but my friend has them and I've goofed around on his Endorphin. I prefer the body shape my Ultimates and the feel that gives them. Plus they don't tend to squeak as much with the spindle hidden inside the body. If you're not in urgent need of pedals, I'd definitely wait a few weeks for the Ultimates. They really are a great pedal.

Hold out for the Ultimates. Recently purchased the originals as the Ultimates were sold out, good pedals but the spindle/shoe squeak drove me nuts. Foot placement was an issue for me as well. The. Newer design should eliminate these issues. Not to steer you away from Canfield but I just put on some Straitline Amps and really like them.
We are having Black, Red and Blue air shipped in, the other colors are on the boat.

Don't think they have the crampons anymore.
I have a set of the ultimates in magnesium & normal. I really like them both. SMT on here has been on his for 2-3 seasosns and they are good to go.

Canfield Brothers Crampon Ultimate Pedals. Thinnest platforms on the market.
I should have picked up a set Ultimates for the Riot, instead I went for the Xpedo Sprys because they were basically half the price. Nice lite pedal, seems robust but the grip is not sufficient. If a set of their spike pins don't fix the problem I'll bite the bullet and grab some Ultimates.
Old enough to know better, too old to give a F$cK
If you don't care about colors you can get some gold ultimates for $99.99

Look under close outs
You can always use some Greased Lightning cleaner or oven cleaner to remove the anodizing if you prefer a raw aluminum finish to the color. Takes about 10-15 minutes per pedal. Wear gloves!
