I've been using Candy 1 pedals on my two bikes for 2-3 years and I like them very much. I have never used another brand of clipless pedals so I can't compare. I decided to upgrade to Candy 2 pedals for mostly aesthetic reasons; I upgraded both bikes and it didn't hurt that they are orange and silver, the same two colors the Candy 2's come in.
I don't know if they are functionally any better, but the looks of the aluminum over the plastic platforms is much nicer.
At first, I couldn't get into the pedal, but I installed the cleat shim and it worked great. Initially, they were stiff on entry/exit, but after a couple weeks of riding, they have smoothed out to what I am used to.
I'm very happy with these pedals.

    Last pair only lasted about 5 years - smacked them off a rock that was in the wrong place.
    So, I had to break down and get another set. and they now color match my old Titus motolite - bonus

      Comments about CrankBrothers Crank Brothers Candy 2 Pedals:

      Not more to say. These are the ones. Only downside, which borders on absurd, is if you buy one pair you must then buy several more for your other bikes and then find a way to dispose of your SPDs.

          They're simply good pedals. Only problem with crank bros is that he bearings wear down and begin to squeak after some time, but nothing outside the ordinary wear and tear.

            I love these pedals, but I do not recommend these as pedals for a first time rider. I would recommend starting with an easier "snap in/snap out" model like Shimano SPD.

              Crank Bros provides a great pedal that's applicable to many styles of riding. These give you lots of power, control and style. I love the silver, too. I can give them a bash here and there and it will not show the same as painted pedals like the shimanos, which works great for my city ride.
