crankbrothers' Mallet 3 pedals sport crank's super easy to enter/exit 4-sided cages with wide aluminum/polycarbonate platforms for first-class support and tough chromoly axles with steel wings for durability, making these great pedals ideal for downhilling and freeriding.
Good pedal. Good cleat retention. Good looks. Clipping and unclipping is a pretty mushy. It doesn't have the positive click in and out like the leading brand has. Still, they work pretty well if you're not too concerned about weight.
I never thought I would actually like clipless pedals. but, everyone I know who uses them kept telling me how much better they are. I'm so glad I finally made the switch! Contrary to my expectations, these are very easy to get in and out of, they actually do help a lot when climbing or flying through the straights (my average mph went up 1.9 on my first ride with these!), and they look great to boot.
I could not say enough about these pedals! I'm very impressed with Crank Brothers pedals so far. I've had multiple different brands in the past.
Love this pedal! I used to used the other brand of clip less pedal but when I tried this piece never take out of my bike! Great for any kind of ride!!!
I loved my egg eaters so much I had to buy the platform version too for commuting since I cannot always wear shoes with clips and I thought these would be a good versatile pedal. That is true! These are relatively light for their size, nice big platform. The clips still work very easily and I have no problems getting lined up with the cleat. Without the adjustable "pegs" raised up for traction my foot does have a tendency to roll the center eggbeater which rolls your foot right off the pedal sometimes, but overall great. Buying another set for 3rd bike too!
