This is a great casual pedal. It's easy to get on and off the bike. It has a nice wide platform and nice pins so it's easy to stay on. The pins are also replaceable so you can get more life out of them.

These pedals have really good grip, and the replaceable pins ensure that it doesn't fade over time. Composite pedals take smaller strikes pretty well and will just get little gouges.

Uses the tried and true Shimano SPD system, with a more rugged and stable cage. Great for beginners, because it is one of the easiest clipless pedal systems. Good for XC, all mountain, and rocky terrain. Doubles as a make-shit platform pedal for riding around town on as well.
