Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for commuters I couldn't user toe clips on my bike becuase of front tire overlap so I tried power grips. They are light and works better than toe clips. Getting in and out is easy. I didn't have to make any adjustments because the fitting was perfect out of the box. The adjustments on it seems to be easy if needed. Getting in and out was also easy. It took 10 minutes to get comfortable with them. If you are in a hurry and couldn't get your foot in the power grip, you can just step on it. After taking your foot off, the power grip will open back up allowing for easy entry. Much more expensive than toe clips but works much better. I use them for commuting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Compromise A few weeks in and I love these things. I used to clip in Mt. Bike, but after 2 ACL replacements the thought of torqueing my knee was highly unappealing + I use my bike daily for around town commutes and errands. I was really missing the loss of up hill pedal power when not using clips. This is a AWESOME compromise. Easy in and out and you don't have to lug an extra pair of shoes with you every where you go. Love them! The con about strap length will not apply to most. I wear some stupid wide speciality sneaks to help with over pronation prob.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible terrible grip pedals Bought this [...] and it has been a nightmare. He stated these were so much superior to the strapless toe clips which turned out to be completely false. They have a twist lock mechanism as the box states which is great as long as you are not in any accident. However I bike in the city and having your legs locked to your pedal after a fall can be deadly. They ride great but be cautious using them in high traffic areas. Also I dispute the fact that these were so much better than the strapless toe clips. They are only marginally better at best conditions. For the money it was not a good deal for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on my tandem I used these for about a year on my commuter, but later moved them to my tandem. I always use street shoes on our tandem, but it can be hard to get up hills without clipping in. I find them equally easy to clip in compared to traditional toe clips/straps, and easier to get out. I can also wear them tighter than regular straps. They do make my big toes numb after about twenty miles (but so do my SPD shoes). We rarely go that far on the tandem anyway. My stoker straps in with toe clips, but she rarely takes her feet off the pedals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Increased power I bought these because I go riding with buddies who all go clipless. I'm always falling behind. I tried clipless and didn't really care for it, so I was looking for something that didn't require buying/wearing special shoes. These pedals fit the bill. I've taken them on the road and on the trail and I can tell they make a big difference. I can power through the toughest sections of the trail where before I would stall out and have to walk. Getting into them isn't very difficult, you just have to learn how to flip the pedal while in motion. (The weight of the strap means it's always hanging down towards the ground) I didn't have to adjust the strap, the sizing was perfect right out of the box, so I can't speak to that. Overall I'm quite happy with them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Between clipless and clip on Thes pedals a a great halfway between clip ons and clipless pedals. I use the same hard tail MTB for my 1 mile trip to work, riding with my young kids around the neighborhood streets and riding off trail. I have ZERO desire to wear different shoes to just get to work. I don't know what to say to the people that say they are hard to get their feet in to or that these pedals are not "ready out of the box" I am pretty uncoordenated and I had no learning curve on them. As far as being out of the box ready, I opened the box and bolted them on, adjusted the straps and done. The one gripe I have is they are a little heavy, but for the extra $$ you can get the high performance model that weigh nearly half as much. When I get a road bike next year I will probably use clipless pedals for the greater efficency but for an all around bike these are the best I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and awesome I bought these for my commute to dental school in San Francisco in 2008. 6 miles a day up and down SF's hills pulling and pushing like a madman on these for 3 years from Baker Beach to Pacific Heights, plus all the recreational rides all around the city, the Marin Headlands, and anywhere I felt like going (I climbed every hill in San Francisco, just cuz I liked to). I only ever had these pedals and never ever wanted anything else. I did cater my dress-shoes (professional dress code at school) to not get torn up by these, but they're actually not too hard on shoes after all. If I wore my big skater shoes, they didn't quite fit with how I had them adjusted, and if I wore my slip-on Vans, they were a little loose. Otherwise, they hold your feet super snug, are super reliable, efficient, and indestructible. They're still on the bike, though I'm not riding it much anymore. But for the several years of daily use and several thousand miles on them, they work like new (though they don't look it). I would definitely buy them again, BUT I don't need to because they are STILL rock solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept my feet tight to pedals these pedals worked as advertised. My feet felt tight and secure. I put them on Saturday night and went on a 45 mile excursion on Sunday. Worked so nicely I forgot they were on. I had no problems and the large strap makes for easy entry/exit. If you have wide feet you might want to consider the longer straps.
