If you ride the sort of terrain where you need clipless pedal but wish you had the freedom of a platform for the times when the pucker factor gets turned up to 11, the WAM-D10 might be your answer.
One side is a standard SPD style set up while the other is a nice solid platform pedal with six pins to keep for feet where they belong.
To keep the weight to a minimum the WAM-D10 uses a machined Cr-mo spindle and a magnesium pedal body.
A set of Wellgo 98A cleats is included. These pedals are also compatible with Shimano SH-51 cleats.
If the WAM-D10 pedals look good to you from where you're sitting on the fence, you might like some shoes from Five Ten. Five Ten makes shoes with grippy soles for platform use. Some of those grippy soled shoes are also SPD compatible so you can bolt a cleat to 'em. A lot of Five Ten's shoes will work with both sides of the WAM-D10 (all of them work with at least one side or the other). Check out our selection of Five Ten shoes here.
If you are the type to spend $200 to shave off 500g, then these pedals are a bit heavy for you. If you want to be able to clip in for the climbs, then switch to a nice platform for the descent, these are the pedals for you. There are better pedals out there if you want to spend the coin, but for $40 in a combo spd/platform pedal these cannot be beat. Paired these up with some FiveTen Element shoes and I couldn't be happier.
I bought this pedals about a year ago. It is an excelent qualitity, work very good, light. I like it very much design and the others skills. I recomenda lot to every body to buy this product.
These are some really good pedals. I replaced a pair of shimano spds with these and I couldn't be happier. I love having the option of riding clipped or unclipped. They have a cery sturdy build. The paint seems to rub off a little easily, but that doesn't bother me. If your on the fence about these pedals, pullthe trigger and get them. They are worth it.
Great peddles for the price! They are a bit heavy but at $40 these are awesome peddles.
Great pedals so far. Got them midway through last season as my first pair of clip-in's and still wanted the platform option for short rides and technical terrain. They're a bit on the heavy side, but seem pretty rugged. I've given them a good beating and have had no issues yet.
I bought my first pair a long time ago to give me the option to use street shoes on my commuter to get to the grocery store. Since then I have also put them on my mountain bike, as they clip in smoothly and reliably, even in the mud (better than the XT pedals that I've tried). The bearings are smooth and have lasted for years, and it's great to have the DH side for riding technical features. The clip side is heavier and naturally rotates to the bottom, so half a pedal rotation always brings it to the top, where you can clip in just as easily as a double-sided clipless pedal.
I ordered these pedals to try clipping in for longer uphills and really was stoked on the quality and ease of use never used clip in style shoes or pedals and these are great I can clip in up and turn the pedals over and shred down Fast delivery too
All around platform pedal. I purchased these thinking I would ride clipless and I have yet to do so. Pro, they turn like butter. Super rugged pedals that can definitely withstand a beating!
The platform area is very stable ,has removable pins / allan set screws. Shoes don't slide around even if covered in wet clay. Not too huge, just right IMHO. It's easy to get to side you want . The clip in area doesn't interfere with your foot too much if you are in reg shoes or don't want to clip in and end up on wrong side. They are heavy compared to some other pedals but are down hill rated by wellgo after all . Bearings are super smooth ,zero play. Felt rock solid on XTR cranks with my 190 lb mass. Also liked that a regular wrench fits in the flats to install. I compared these to other multi platform pedals and read all reviews and real user forum opinions that I could find before choosing these. Price on price point made it easy to try these if they ended up not being my ultimate pedal.
I had never heard of Wellgo but took a chance with these since I was looking for a DH flat pedal but also wanted to ease into clip less pedals. All I can say is these are incredible. Well constructed, tough, the pins on the flat side really hold your feet and are just the right side, while the SPD clips are great and fully adjustable. Now I can ride trails with my SPD shoes but also roll around downtown with street shoes on. Love this pedal!
I built up a very nice all mountain Sette frame and have maintained it over the past five years. Due to scuff's and scratches recently I picked up a pair of these pedals to replace what was on it. Although a bit heavy, the bearings remain true, the platforms retain their grip, and the clips are still easy to step into. I was able to upgrade to an Intense frame but still transferred these inexpensive pedals to my new rig because I love the way they work. Not going to win any races but I feel very stable in and on them.
Good pedals. I found them to be a bit bulky. For the price, you can't beat them. Clipless component works well, and the flat side has a nice wide footprint for balance and power transfer when your in the sketchy areas and want to have a foot ready to plant.
Great pedals, smooth, fairly light, easy in and out and a good deal, always had good luck with Wellgo.
