I’ve been riding these pedals for a week now, and I have mixed feelings.
-Concave surface gives flipping a nice feel.
-Same “Soft” feeling upon landing that the Twisted PC’s have.
-Very little grip. The knurled surface was supposed to provide more grip, but it really does nothing. My feet slip off of these pedals just as easily as they slip off of my two-month-old Twisted PC’s.
-The pedals seem to have a smaller surface area than the PC’s. Since I have size 13 feet, I want as much surface area as possible. I find myself landing on the very edge of the pedal more, resulting in more UPD’s.
Overall, the concave shape of the pedals is interesting, but I’m going to be purchasing Twisted PC’s next time around. If you like pedals that aren’t grippy, or have small feet, these may be for you. Otherwise, I’d buy a different set of pedals.
I use Twisted PC nylon pedals which work fine, but I don’t think they’re much different from the pedals you reviewed.
If you need more pedal width, this will cause more clearance issues.
What shoes do you use for riding?
Have you considered buying some stiff soled shoes, such as the 5.10 DH shoe? I ride in them, they are very comfortable and with a moderately stiff sole I have a stronger position even when my foot isn’t all the way on the pedals.
