How much upward force is required for the vertical release to let go? Thought about these myself to reduce injury from crashing.

More than just lifting your foot and it's adjustable, I started mine really loose and haven't just pulled up out of them yet. I found that multi release cleats allowed me to twist and lift my ankle up at a more natural angle than single release.

So is there much risk of accidental release?

not really, even at the lowest tension setting you have to give them a decent tug (oh er) to release them. slightly more force than it takes to twist out.

i think iv got mine set about 4 clicks on from lowest. and it doesnt come out while im riding. only when i need to dab a foot.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of it. I think what it really needs is some coloured brake pad holder bolts!

I'm quite happy with standard ones, can't really see them with ice tech pads in anyway :wink: I honesty can't think of anything to change on this really once the headset is in, not bling for the sake of it anyway, most of the bolts of any meaning are ti already and I'm trying to keep the green abit more subtle.

here's where i got mine. The only different between the multi and normal release are the multi has a chamfered edge to allow the upwards release. you can see it when you put them side by side.

Crank Brothers Mallets. All the best of both clipless (easier access and exit than SPD), big flat platform for when you can't quite get back in. There's a reason that a majority of pro downhillers use them............

My experience of crank bros products has been shocking, they product looks great but works ok for 5 minutes before imploding, plus they weigh a ton and are massively overpriced. I have some xt trail pedals and have been impressed with them on the turbo trainer and on the 456 commuting this week, so they're going on the HD this weekend to see how I get on offroad :)

Benpinnick, gunmetal doesn't really work on the frame tbh, originally I was a fan but wish I'd had black hubs tbh, but they work really well and I don't have the cash to buy a new wheelset til after uni and with the new XX1 group needing a new free hub body I'm guessing anything similar thing will be needed of shimano make a similar groupset, so the wheels are staying put for now.

Aye, this. Started my clipless years on cb pedals and once they blew up (destroying my crank threads in the process) i binned them and went shimano. I never liked the loose feel of crank brothers (didnt like the lack of tension and high float). Never felt positive enough, and i could never tell when they were about to unclip if i moved my feet around mid trail or whipping.

Strange, I have Iodine carbon bars and Mallets on both my MTBs and have never had any issues whatsoever. I'm probably slightly bigger than you and harder on my stuff as well ;)

I love the float, the ease of engagement and release and the excellent platform.

I've seen so many cb pedals fail under average weight riders that it just put me off them. Likewise my Joplin was pretty poor and their bars feel abit weird to me, and it's too expensive too. I got my xt trails for £45 and I know from my old dx flats they will run forever with little to no work. Easton are now my default choice for bars and stem, reverb for seatpost, schwalbe tyres (despite being sponsored by conti :lol:) and shimano drivetrain and brakes, I find stuff that works for me and then tend to stick to it. Ill definitely have another Ibis again that's for sure!

M520 on MTB and R540 (still have them) on the road bike.

I prefer CB, you prefer Shimano. Get over it.

I'm 95kg and never had an issue.

Lawman, same here. Although I'm Hope for hubs, stems, headsets, bottom brackets and brakes, Reverb for seatposts, Shimano for drivetrain (with the exception of FSA SLK cranks), CB for bars and pedals, Charge for the magic Spoon.

Wow, if i were you i'd rush straight out now and buy a lottery ticket because never having had an issue with a cb pedal must mean you're one of the luckiest people alive.
