Shimano's Saint Flat Pedals are the ultimate platforms for downhill domination, proven at the World Cup-level and ridden by the pros. The platforms feature a concave surface and 18 replaceable pins per pedal. The length of the pins is customizable so you can dial in how much traction you need on your runs, and the cut-aways on the pedals clear mud easily. Saint parts are renowned for their durability, and the pedals are no exception. These pedals have burly axles and rock solid platforms so you can go big, huck to flat, and pedal away smiling.
I purchased these pedals for my 2013 Trek Mamba Matte Black. They look just as good as their utilization! They have excellent grip, I haven't slipped off them once; the price may be a little steep, but if you are going clipless... This pedal is for you. It's lighter than it looks, and I would definitely purchase them again.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
