"I never use cleated shoes before, so this is my first purchase of cleated pedal of any kind. Bought mountain bike pedal as a recommendation from a friend, as they are more versatile and less prone to sand clog (several of my colleague fell off due to unable to 'clip' out when their road cleat pedals are dirty).
So, speaking of a user that has no other pedal experience (apart from el-cheapo plastic no cleat pedal), this cleat is better by far (duuh, obviously). I've been using them for 2 weeks now.
In term of getting used to them, I was told to jab in to 'clip' in, unfortunately that was a wrong advice (that was true for road bike pedals). After was told simply to put pressure on them, these cleats are even easier to use!"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Rugged, Adjustable, Good Fit
