    Candy is dandy.

    One of the most versatile pedals in Crank Brother's collection, the Candy 1 Pedals excel at everything from fast-paced XC racing to aggressive trail rides. They're larger than the XC-oriented Eggbeaters, yet smaller than the downhill-crushing Mallets, striking the sweet spot between lightweight efficiency and confidence-inspiring surface area when dismounts on technical trails are commonplace.

    The composite body retains a lightweight feel while standing up to the occasional rock strike on the trail, while the stamped steel wings provide intuitive four-sided entry that sheds muck every time you clip in. Customizable release angles of 15 and 20 degrees allow you to bail quickly during sketchy situations or stay clipped in for extra security when things get rowdy. This customizable release is key for beginners just getting started, allowing them to gain peace of mind for dismounting quickly when they're about to fall on the trail.

    • Versatile and intuitive pedal for cross-country and trail use
    • Composite body adds a bit more surface area for clipping in
    • Four-sided entry makes it easy to locate clip-in interface
    • Mud-shedding design works great in mucky conditions
    • Customizable release angles of 15 or 20 degrees
    • Includes Crank Brothers Premium Brass Cleats
    • Item #CRN003L

    Great for the price.

      I have 2 sets of these. One on my road bike and the other on my cx. I decided to go back to flats on the mtb.
      Pedals release pretty quickly when you need them too but stay firm when pulling straight up on hard climbs and sprints.
      I use these on my road bike because I like wearing shoes that I can actually walk around in. :D

      Awesome Pedals

      For a truly awesome review, check out the review below by Davito. I agree 100% with everything he says. Easy to clip in, easy out. Just the right amount of float for me ( although not a bear trap for roadie carbon fiber soled shoes as he mentioned ). These look good, are pretty light and are a really good budget buy. You can easily spend 2X or 3X this much on pedals, or you could just snag these and save the extra $$.

      Running these on multiple bikes

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Famous quote regarding cycling components: "LIGHT, STRONG, CHEAP : Pick any two, you won't get all 3."
      These pedals break that rule for sure. When I first started mountain biking in 2009, these were the first clipless pedals I bought, moving up from flats, because they were cheap. Since then, I've ridden shimano, HT, and Look, and my old $40 candy 1's are what I always go back to. They're indestructible! All other pedals work great for a while, but lots of moving parts and options to wear out. Simplicity is key. And at ~280 grams a pair, you'd have to get into the hundreds of dollars with any other brand to get close to that weight. They were also perfect for my commuter bike, because I have a nice pair of chrome, 2 hole cleat commuter shoes. Riding in traffic requires as much (or more) in, and out clipping than mountain riding, and being clipped in too tight can be hazardous. I now have a pair on each of my bikes, mountain, commuter, even road. It's nice to be able to hop on any one of my bikes with any pair of my shoes and have total interchangeability. Egg beater design is super easy in, easy out, so very few clipped in fall overs. Roadie's who prefer a bear trap pedal with 0° float will not like these, as they have a bit of float to allow for lots of movement. Composite platform is bomb proof, and lighter than Candy 2's and 3's. The only advantage I see for the higher end candy's is more serviceability, you can take the platform apart to get to the spring mechanism, where the 1's you cant. But at $40 dollars, they are almost disposable! I still have my original 1's after 8 years, and after servicing them twice with crank brothers' little refurbish bearing/bushing kits. (~$15) The only signs of wear I see are the composite platform is a little beat up, and there is just a little back and forth play in the egg beater itself inside the platform.
