Pros & Cons

  • Adjustable spring tension, so you can determine how easy or hard it is to (dis)engage the pedal.
  • Available in black and silver, allowing you to choose whichever colour best suits your bike.
  • The bearings aren't as smooth as those in the more expensive pedals, but then the price isn't very high.

Goed voor starter

Zoals gezegd, als starter zijn dit degelijke pedalen. Misschien niet de lichtste en hoogste kwaliteit maar doen wat ze moeten doen. Komen met plaatjes (geel)

Prima maar niet duurzaam genoeg

Ik heb toch al makkelijk 20000 km met deze pedalen gereden, maar nu merk ik toch wel dat ze echt op zijn, de body begint uit te slijten.


  • Goedkoop
  • Universeel
  • Vast draaien met inbus


  • slijtage van de body
