Product Description

The crankbrothers candy is an iconic pedal designed by Carl and Frank, the original founders of crankbrothers, they were tired of getting stuck in mud-covered pedals with no way in or out.  They realised that existing pedals were too complicated….It started with a simple question: what is the best way to attach a shoe to a crank?  To answer this question, Carl and Frank created a system with only two moving parts hinging on a spring.  This system became known as the eggbeater pedal, and later it was adapted into the candy pedal. 

The Candy is really diverse and is used by a wide range of riders.  We have seen them out on the trail, at cyclocross races and even on commuter bikes.  The cage around the 4 point engagement system inspires confidence and offers a great alternative to the eggbeater pedal if you want more of a pedal body surface area.

As with the rest of the crankbrothers range the pedals are fully serviceable with a level 1 / 2 service kit (product code CRB-11729).  Servicing is simple and does not require any specialist tools, just a flat head screwdriver, socket wrench and 8mm allen key to hold the pedal by the axle. We recommend that the pedal is cleaned and greased every 30 hours of riding and the bearings are inspected for wear.

Clipless MTB Pedals Guide

 

Clipless MTB Pedals Guide

Designed for mountain bikes these pedals will keep your foot in place over rough ground.

Attached to your shoe the small SPD style cleat fixes with two bolts. Pedals that use the two-bolt cleat system are commonly called SPD (Shimano Pedalling Dynamics), after the primary brand for this system. Clipless MTB pedals let you connect your shoes to them, for greater power and control. Although they are traditionally off-road pedals, there are many types of shoe style available so are popular for leisure and commuter riding. They are easier to use and to walk in than road clipless shoes.

To use clipless MTB pedals, you will need a pair of shoes that take two-bolt cleats. You will also need to attach the right type of cleats for your pedals to the shoes. Cleats are included with pedals.

  • Increased efficiency
  • Stay planted to the bike over very rough terrain
  • Durable, with great mud shedding qualities
  • Specific shoes are essential
  • Being attached to the bike takes some adjustment time
  • Dabbing in corners is not as instant

Types of MTB clipless pedal

There are essentially three styles of mountain bike clipless pedals:

Small lightweight traditional SPDs

Small lightweight traditional SPD type pedal with no platform other than the clipless mechanism. Suits race style cross country shoes with a stiff sole.

Trail type, with a medium sized cage

Trail type, with a medium sized cage around the pedal. Protects the mechanism against rock strikes and gives a small platform area for the foot if the mechanism is missed.

Larger downhill type with a large platform

Larger downhill type with a large platform, aids clipping in and provides a good base if you do not clip in first time. Often with replaceable pins for added grip.


Two-bolt cleat/pedal compatibility table

Most clipless mountain bike pedals are Shimano SPD, or are compatible with them, such as Ritchey and Wellgo. Yet, there are several brands that make pedals and cleats that are only compatible within that brand, such as Crank Bros, MKS, Time Atac and Look Quartz.
