Huge platform, 4mm&7mm pins, replaceable nylon plates, spin control, within average DH pedal weight, and 17mm thickness. The pedal could completely rebuilt for about half the cost of new. What was there not to like? other than the 17mm thickness, but even that could be overlooked considering the enormous platform?
Well after 30hrs I have found what's not to like and its a deal breaker. It's not that these pedals are now useless or the grip is no longer outstanding, it is. Its the fact that with all the features and replaceable parts it doesn't add up to a hill of beans if the alloy body breaks. Yes, the nylon plates do sufficiently protect the alloy body, but the pins can be ripped from the alloy body by the occational pedal to rock strike that will happen. Now, this is nothing to worry about if you avoid the rocky techy stuff like the pleague and just pound the groomed flow trail and jump line all day. But if you like to charge that east coast gnar like I do, be prepared to forever lose a couple of pins.
While I'm still happy with their performance. The idea is gone that these may last beyond the season or I may want to invest in rebuilding (more for the fact I will want to replace them with the latest and greatest). While I didn't pay the premium price for these, I feel I could have gotten a cheaper pedal with better or at the least equal durability.
