Despite countless articles, videos, and comments to the contrary, I don't see the whole clipless vs flat pedals topic as something that's worth vehemently debating. At the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference, and what a rider is trying to accomplish. It's unlikely that you'll see a cross-country racer stand on top of the podium with skate shoes any time soon, just like the winner of a slopestyle contest isn't going to be clip-clopping their way through the crowd to collect an oversized check.
That said, it's still interesting to take the pulse of pedal popularity every few years, which is the topic of this week's poll. Answer below to cast your vote in the never-ending clipless vs flats conundrum.
