    The best enduro clipless pedal

    Hi guys, I will be replacing my old Shimano pedals. I usually ride enduro tracks. Any recommendations?

    The CrankBros Mallet E has been good for me. I like the amount of float, and the support of the platform.

    I used the Crank Brothers Mallet DH on my enduro bike, love it! Reasons are the same as TXrocks from the post before mine.

    Time Speciale. Float, support (platform with pins), adjustable release, all weather consistency. Honestly the best pedals I have ever used.

    Same. I also use the "long spindle" version and "easy release" cleats, it's been a great setup for Enduro races. Easy to get a foot down when necessary; then still somewhat ok with a platform when I can't quite get clipped in in time.

    Shimano Saint M820.

    Shimano consistency. Shimano durability. Useable platform for when not actually clipped in

    I keep wanting to try the long spindles. I still run the standard cleats. There are times I thought about putting the easy releases on, especially at the races that it's super loose or blown out. Do you think you can clip in easier with the easy releases?

    Mallet DH/E and the Saint are by top choices. I have used an SPD before but i'm leaning towards mallet just because of the float. How about the durability of Mallet?

    Almost 2000 miles on mine. We have tons of rocks here, mine take a beating. They have been trouble free

    Many pro riders using Mallet E or Mallet DH and im sure they're great, but im used to Shimano multi release cleats, so Funn Ripper, Saint PD-M820 or XT PD-M8120 (depends on the bike).

    As for the Mallet, how much flow (in degrees) its having compared to Shimano SPD pedals?

    I second the Time pedals. I use Time pedals on my bikes beside my road bike. Easy and consistent to clip in/ out and work great is weather, snow and mud.

    I think clipping IN feels the same with both cleats. Long spindles were a huge improvement for me also because I wear a size 12 shoe. With the standard spindles, I was sometimes hitting the crank before disengaging. Led to a few embarrassing topple overs...

    Each Crank Brothers cleat set come with one piece of 0 degree and another piece of 6 degree float. Also, the release angle is 15 degrees.
    The above info is for their standard release cleat set btw. I believe they have an easy release set which has like 10 degrees release angle.

    I am in 13's I have had a couple spills from crank being a certain spot that made it harder to get out, I may go ahead and order a set of spindles. I should put a set of bearings in just for the preventative maintenance.
