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.
Love these pedals. I bought a pair for my fat bike last year, and just purchased another set for my husband's fat bike. It's great to have the option to clip in for extra power for long, slow climbs; and the pins are grippy even on snow-and-ice caked boots. Contrary to another reviewer, I'm glad the SPD side hangs down by default: that way when I'm riding the flat side navigating technical sections of trail, I know that I won't accidentally clip in. Fat bikes are heavy anyways, what's a little extra weight?
I bought these for my fat bike and for my wife's 29er. I love em because I can clip in, wear cold weather boots, or just tool around with the kids. She loves em because she can use the flat side when the trail gets too technical. Awesome value and very easy to clip in and out.
It's nice to have the option of both pedal types with no work!
Excellent pedals! Maybe not the lightest in the category but very durable. I have had these pedals 2 yrs now and are the best 2 sided pedals I have found.
I had to make some adjustments to make these compatible with the Shimano M162 Mountain Shoe. If you unclip while riding, it can be a pain in the a$* to rotate the pedal to the correct side to clip back in. Overall, I am satisfied with the pedal.
I love these pedals! I ride both road and mountain. I've been road biking for a long time now so clipping in is second nature. Not so much with mtb as I am a newbie to mountain biking. Looking down the rocky descents in the FINS or White Tanks here in west valley, I cannot imagine how experienced mtbers make it down clipped in. With the WAM-D10, I get the pedaling efficiency during climbs and the peace of mind going downhill. It's easy to clip in and out and the finish looks great! My younger son also likes to use my bike for school so I do not have to switch pedals for him to use it. It's a great product for the price...
This pedals are just great! I'm not an advocate of cleat pedals, however with the WAMD10 I have best of both worlds. In one side the DH like bolst are great and have a lot of grip, I use them with Specialized Rime shows. On the other side, I don't have enough experience in clipless shoes to say if the cleats are great or just fine, it works to me. They're really sturdy and have passed a lot of rough terrain, wind, snow, water, dirt and a lot of mud. The cromoly (brownish) coating fell apart very fast, but the aluminium beneath is just great. I've been using them for 2 years now and they really got to the point.
I love these peddles. Sturdy, durable and clip in and out well. If you are a dh heavy rider these will be awesome for you.
I picked up these pedals hoping for better stability & power without really expecting to much for the great price I paid for them. They've far surpassed any expectations I had. They're easy to clip in & out of, they give a wide platform for maximum cranking power, and the flat side works great when I don't want to clip in. More than pleased with these. - Pete D
These clip-ins work great and are wide enough to use regular tennis shoes for those less formal rides!! Great price and quality pedals!
They are a cool idea. I do like being able to use both. They are a bit hard to clip into and out of, but that just may be me. They problably would work well with sum shoes that aren't just made for clipless. I had them on my x-country bike, but have switched them over to my dh/am bike and am happy with them. For he price they are good. They are a bit heavy, but then again they are only forty bucks. All in all I am satisfied with them.
My new favorite pedal for the fatbike!
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
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.
