Our review

A double hard bastard block of Emmental cheese for dirt jumpers, not downhillers
Skip to view product specifications

These things are burly. The solid billet drilled body and XL 12mm diameter axle are super-strong, but they carry some girth, at 565g a pair.


We found that the 20 threaded pins were a bit short to hold onto the sole of most shoes with any tenacity. 

This combined negatively with the large surface area, which stopped the shoe moulding itself around the pedal, and became seriously slippery when wet.


They’re best suited to street or dirt jumping, where movement on the pedal can be a bonus for tweaking those tricks, but they’re not ideal for downhill, where outright grip is key.
