 Pros: Thin, well constructed, nice looking
Cons: Poor grip, expensive, pins tear out easily

I've been running these for a few months and really struggle with them, the grip is very poor compared to other flat pedals with a concave shape. I want to like them, because I ride in areas with a lot of rock and having thin pedals is really nice, but I lose grip on them (w/ 5.10s) at least once a ride.

They have held up really well, though, despite all the use that they have seen. I just can't recommend them if grip is a priority.

 I've ridden these pedals hard in mixed trail and DH use (2 seasons) and they've held up well with no issues to date.

Canfield Brothers Crampon Ultimate (MSRP $149) — This pedal is the evolution of more than 7 years of development and more important, real world testing! They are proven on the world cup DH circuit and suitable for any style of riding! No one has more experience in building the ultra thin pedal. We have continued to shape to the “new” market of DH pedals because of this design. This is the original, DH rated Crampon platform!

The benefits of these pedals extend way past the weight. The patented, (Patent #D615,003 S), unique shape and profile offer the rider superb grip and maximum impact clearance. Because there is no front edge for your pedal to contact, there is never a stall moment or worse, over-the-bars crash with “block” style pedals. Keeping your foot close to the spindle of the pedal further increases the efficiency of the pedal. You no longer have a “lag” or “dead spot” in your pedal stroke. Your foot makes perfect circles and you have almost the full advantage of clip style. You can push and pull through you pedal stroke, not just push. The “convex” shape naturally contours your foot and aids in even further grip.

● 342 grams
● Thin 6mm front impact edges
● 106mm wide x 106mm magnesium platforms
● Anodized finish
● DU bushings
