High end pedal
This is an expensive pedal for a very high-end XC bike. If you are building an ultra-light XC dream bike (like a near 20 lb hardtail) this is the way to go. You need a stiff carbon soled shoe to mate with this pedal as there is no "platform" on this pedal. I would stick with the Candy pedal if you are doing bigger drops or ledgier trails, or are close to 200 lbs.
