There is no doubt in stating the utter truth that these pedals have been a huge success in the mountain equipment market. They have literally been termed as game changers by some of the most excellent and passionate mountain riders. The Crankbrothers Eggbeater 3 Pedals are the latest version of the workhorse Eggbeater SL and once you use them, you will be the one sitting and drooling over these.
Why the material is to die for?
The first feature that I am going to mention is the material that has been used to make this product. It is made of cast stainless body and spring with steel spindle. The best part about it is that this material does not add to the weight of the product (it barely weighs 278 g/ per pair), if anything at all, it adds some strength and stability to it. This steel has been used on the body as well as the wings. Further, it is such material that it will never rust or corrode, so you don’t hesitate before exploiting your bike in a rainy or a wintery weather; finally, the weight of the rider too is not a problem.
You should totally go clipless
The fact that the clipping in is easy and you don’t need to flip it for it to clip in is all the more reason as to why you should use this pedal. It is very easy to learn for you would have just hit the pedal and the four sided wings of the pedal clips in as fast as the light travels.
Moreover, the rotating feature allows the Eggbeater wing to rotate forward or backward as is required by the situation depending upon the pressure exerted on it with your foot.
The efficient design!
This pedal has been designed in such a way that it delivers a very powerful and efficient pedal stroke. It is low profile and allows efficient performance. On the other hand the bleats of for the pedals are small in size. There is 6 degrees of knee saving float in the pedal that facilitates the release angels. The release angels are 15 degree or 20 degree. Both work amazingly well but if you are new in the clipless party, it is recommended and advised that you stick to the 15 degree setting at least at the outset. You can eventually switch to 20 degree setting too.
The look of it!
The efficiency is definitely unquestionable. The entire design is fascinatingly appealing to the eye due to the great design. The look is such that you will know the pedals are going to be able to last through the rough and tough of a mountain ride.
Simple and easy!
It doesn’t have fancy parts here and there that need to be adjusted at all times or the screws that need to be tightened before every ride. Whether you are a beginner or a professional rider, the pedal will not be an issue.
It definitely sounds absurd when it is said that there are no problems with any product, but try it for yourself and believe me on this.
