Excellent pedals/straps! Great performance and quality! shipping was fast and kept me updated along the way!!
I love the idea of these pedals - clips but not traditional cages, and I can wear any shoes I want, from flip-flops to whatever. I like the look of them and the color options. They're sharp and new and off the beaten trail. My criticisms: they are hard to get into while on the trail. When you need to slam your foot in when you're about to hit a tough obstacle or pedal up a hill, they are a pain in the A to flip over and get in the right position. Because of the weight, the straps are always facing downward. I used traditional cages forever and they got to be second nature. I hope these turn out the same. The other thing is, when you really crank the strap down, you get locked in pretty tight to the pedals (because of the sharp pins on them). I got stuck in one place on a trail and couldn't get my foot out and fell down. Again, hopefully this is just an issue of getting used to these pedals.
recently purchased the pedal and strap kit and I'm not disappointed in my purchase. the pedals are light and strong with some good grip on them as well! I would like to mention that although the straps are made of velcro the straps are somewhat hard to insert through the pedal holes since the holes in the pedals are quite small and slim so some tugging is required to guide them through.
have a fairly good quality and finish.
Having used clipless pedals mountain and road biking, this strap allows me a similar pedaling efficiency in Vans.
