    M646 and Mallet C pedals

    Hi,
    What would you recommend for a beginner in downhill and freeride, the M646 shimano pedals, or the Crank Bros. Mallet C pedals...???

    flats

    flats= pedals that do not connect to your shoes.

    flats are pedals without any hooking device....no clipins or the old fashioned stir-up...just a flat pedal

    Clipless are better for downhill, flats for building skills and "freeriding" or stunt oriented riding.

    From a physics and biomechanical standpoint there is no advantage to running flats for downhill, unless you often endo.

    Both the Crank Brothers and Shimano pedals are excelent choices.

    Ride what your friends ride

    If you have the same kind of pedals as your riding buddies then you can swap bikes/parts more easily.
