Even though it's a physically small thing in terms of size, upgrading your pedals can make a huge difference. This relatively small part of any given bike can either make a ride enjoyable or it can make it downright miserable. Our friend Carl tells us about his upgrade to the Crank Brothers Mallet Enduro pedals. Check it out!
Each year when the season dumps snow and my “riding” season comes to a slow, I take a look at my bike and see what I need replacing or upgrading. This year I decided to do a lot of the work that needed to be done with to ride myself. Besides the amazing products that I had received from WorldWide Cyclery, there were other items I either ran service on or upgraded with new technologies out there. I ride a 2016 GT Force. Thus far I have upgraded the drive train to a GX Eagle, my RockShox Pike I upgraded to the Charger 2 damper and the Debonair spring, which improved the feel of the bike for the better, which were all purchased from WorldWide Cyclery.
After the season was closing I had completed a few rides with friends that had simple upgrades or changes to their bikes in which I was interested in. The ESI extra chunky grips, the Crank Brothers Mallets Enduro Pedals and the 5.10 Hellcat MTB shoes. Each of which I was able to try on other people’s bikes. In recent years I had used the classic SPD type clipless pedals with a Giro shoe. But after using the Hell Cats combined with the Crank Brothers pedals on a friend’s bike, I knew I had to get these.
The Hellcat 5.10 shoe combined with the Crank Brothers Mallet Enduro pedal made for a great combination. The ease of clipping and unclipping, when needed, was a solid factor for me to purchase. Combined with the tough stiffness of the 5 10 Hellcat, gave me exactly what I was looking for in pedals and shoes. My riding ranges from flow trails to bike parks and the super fun chunky terrain of Southern Utah. Add on the ESI super chunky grips, and it’s a great combo to reduce arm pump and vibration in the handlebars, to having a sure foot on the pedals of the Crank Brothers Enduro Mallet pedals.
