Canfield Crampon Pedals

Canfield Crampon Pedals

Post by BillJ on Thu Jun 13, 2013 1:29 pm

Thanks to the Pirates who spoke of the C2 pedals when I was researching what kind to buy. I got a pair of Crampon Magnesium pedals about a month ago and offer this initial review:
BACKGROUND:
Experienced rider, been in clips for 20 yrs - now changing to flats, enjoy XC/AM, FR, and light DH all on one bike - Ibis HD 180/160.
Ride up 75% of time, shutte 25%.  Using Five Ten VXi Freerider shoes.  Only previous flats experience was with Specialized Lo Pro Mag 2 (circa 2007) About 25 hrs on the C2 pedals so far, over a dozen shuttle laps and 10 AM rides.
REVIEW:
Excellent all round.  Tried 10mm pins on one side and 8 mm on other to seek out right amount of stick vs foot reposition ability.  For all out DH 10mm's great.  For trail riding, slow techy climbing, shore feature rides etc I like the ease of repositioning of the 8mm pins.  I'll likley end up with combo of mostly 10 mm with some 8's in mid foot to increase shoe to pedal body connection.  I don't see any benefit or disbenefit of convex (vs typical concave) other than the obvious than the thinner leading edge is beneficial for clearance.  On that note I had a few pedal bumps/strikes but no issue at all (i.e foot/shoe would of hit even in clips).  Appears you can set the preload for less spinning (no firt dirt jump tricks) to easy spinning (perceived less resistance for long trail rides).  they have a few hits and scratches but nothing so far that affects the pins or integrity of the pedal.  Clearly Mag is softer than the aluminum ones - but for me I don't think it will significantly shorten the life of the pedal - and do appreciate the lighter weight for trail riding.  Have not needed to pull apart to clean/regrease yet - but seems straightforward.  Like them so much we ordered another pair for my wife's trail bike (she is switching to flats because of a skiing knee injury, however she may stay on flats for the all round benefits).

No issues with paint peeling on mine so far Mudd.  I think I asked Sean at Canfield about that a couple months ago and he said they solved it (may of been just certain colors as well.)

I have never seen the paint peel on any of the pedals. I have the Original Crampons in black on one rig and Gold  C2s on the other. No issues here. Gold looks painted but tough and no chipping! Black looks Ano?
