Crank Brother’s aimed to create a stronger pedal; therefore they feature an aluminum CNC-d body with steel wings. The watertight and airtight internal parts make for very little maintenance required.

    Good Pedal, but not for me
    I was always a Shimano guy and figured on the next bike I built I would try something new. I went with the Orange Candy 3's to match the race face atlas handlebar. The pedals are very good, easy to get into and don't clog up. I just don't seem to like them though. I love the deep locked in feeling that I get from the SPD style pedals a lot more. They're great overall all but not for me.

    PROS: Mud shielding, Design, Ease of entry

    CONS: Too loose

    Second pair
    This is my second pair of these. The first pair, after about 5 years on my mountain bike without any maintenance, needed a bit of a tune-up. I got the service kit, cleaned them up, and put them on my commuter/road bike. The new pair went on my mountain bike, and now that I know that there is a service kit, these will hopefully stay for another 5 years or more.

    I like the pedals because I feel like Crank Brothers dialed in the entry/exit force very well. There are times when I do come out of the pedal when I don't want to, but more often than that, I appreciate the ability to get out of the pedal when I'm cornering hard and slide a bit and need to put a foot down.

    Unless something new hits the market, I don't see myself trying a different pedal for a long while.

    Can't Beat Crank Bros...
    I finally replaced my original 4-year old pair of Candy 3's on my primary bike. The best part of the Crank Brothers Candy pedals is you can easily service them yourself with a <$10 service kit. I serviced my last pair of pedals once or twice each season, and they've performed flawlessly. They're still in good enough shape to use, so I moved them to my single speed! You can't go wrong with these pedals!

    One of the single best items/upgrades I've ever added, Crank brothers hit the nail on the head dead center with these, just like all their other products these are incredibly tough, well designed and fully functional while being simple enough to maintain and really not requiring much thought, jump on clip in and ride hard these will not let you down or leave you wanting get them NOW!!!!!

    Third Time's a Charm?
    When I first started mountain biking, I tried the eggbeater 2 and ended up returning them. I had difficulty getting clipped in and lead to a few crashes on the trail. I decided to try these as it was time to replace my road bike peddles and with quite a few bikes in my fleet, I was looking for an all around solution. From the very first ride, I just loved these peddles. No issues clipping in or out. I think the platform really helps. As a side benefit, I have had absolutely no hot foot issues. I have since put them on my road and mountain bikes and not looking back. I can wear my mountain shoe and no more clunking around with road shoes and cleets. Durability is yet to be seen. But with the rebuild kit available, I don't see that as a problem. I think Crank Bros finally got them right at a decent price point.

    PROS: Easy Secure Clipping, Great looks, minimal weight, Good Platform Support

    CONS: None so far

    Love these pedals!
    This is my second pair of these pedals. After 6 years on my mountain bike and effectively zero maintenance, one of the bearings on the first pair isn't rolling as smooth as it should. i bought the rebuild kit, used it (it's great), and will use those old pedals on my commuter/road bike, even with a little bit of stickiness in the bearing.

    The new ones are going on the mountain bike, and I'll give them a little bit more TLC with all of the abuse that they get. Installation is a breeze, entry is easy, exit is easy if you hit a patch of loose dirt and need to clip out immediately. I don't think I'll ever go back to SPDs.

    Solid Pedals
    I'm on my third season with a set of Candy 3 pedals. I have dissambled and greased them a few times but other than that they have been flawless. They have taken many hits on rocks and roots and never broken or let me down. I think I have come unclipped from a hit twice. They work very well in the mud and snow too. I plan to put a rebuild kit in them and keep using them.

    Great pedals
    This is my second pair of these pedals. I just changed colors. I like them alot. They have the right amount of float and I have never come out of them unless I want to.
