Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The pedals are good and offer a significantly stronger cleat retention mechanism than Shimano pedals with a comfortable platform. However, with this mechanism, I found that finding the appropriate cleat position (one that would not hurt my leg, as my legs supinate) was impossible to do. The pedals also came with the wrong number of cleats which required me to contact the distributor and get a new set of cleats sent out. I also found that the finish on the rear portion of the cleat retention mechanism began to chip after a couple of days of use and the tension spring rusted on the surface after one damp ride (the latter issue was alleviated with a cleaning and lubing). These two issues make me question the long term durability of the pedals.
It is worth noting that the pedals come with a 8mm thin-walled socket that is necessary for service.
