I have now been riding on these pedals for around a year and a half, mostly on technical, rocky trails. I wrote the original review after tackling a 48 mile ride on such a trail. I was attempting the ride again a year later when at mile 18, I realized that my right pedal (not the strap or attachment components) had broken. The warranty for the pedals are good for one year. I contacted the company, just in case, and they offered to sell me replacement pedals at 20% off. While this is was a kind good-faith effort on their part, it simply won't be enough to keep me in Power Grips while mountain biking. If the company has no more faith in their pedal than to sell me another one at a modest discount, this must mean their pedals are not built to last much longer than a year. This simply isn't a good investment for me, even if it means not purchasing a unitasker shoe.
I went ahead and purchased a pair of clipless pedals and shoes and can confirm all my suspicions in the original post. There is more clearance underneath your foot with clipless pedals making technical or rocky trails easier to navigate, and it is easier to get clipped back in on rough trail. Additionally, clipless pedals do not require you to keep your foot more or less horizontal with the ground in order to pull up on the pedals as Power Grips do. This was an unexpected but exciting advantage of clipless pedals.
That having been said, if I were to purchase a second bike for commuting, I would use the Power Grips. I have removed two stars from my review, however, because I no longer believe they are a suitable choice for serious mountain bikers like myself.Read more ›
Will definitely use these on any bike I own now.
The main problem I found was that the sole of my walking shoe would not slide easily into the pedal and required a lot of wiggling of my foot to get it seated comfortably. This required a lot more looking down than I was happy with.
When getting started after stopping on a steep gradient it was often not possible to get the second foot in the pedal. This was especially difficult when passing traffic made it undesirable to get an attack of the wobbles while looking down.
They would be great for suburban/city riding when jumping on the bike with street shoes - found them a much better option than the old toe clips.
Overall I would not recommend them for touring - I breathed a sigh of relief when I clicked effortlessly back into my cleats on the first ride after coming back home.
Nothing...Absolutely NOTHING beats this Power Grips combination when you want the most effective balance of peddling energy applied and the comfort of wearing the shoes that YOU want to wear when riding your bicycle.
Some bicyclists, especially women and older riders, who ride for health or recreational reasons are unable to safely dismount in an emergency from other types of pedal attachments. If they fall as a result of not being able to remove their feet from pedal cleats or toe devices, then not only could it discourage them from riding a bicycle, but they risk serious injuries to their legs or hips falling from a bike.
Protect your folks who have the heart and determination to ride bicycles by installing and training them on the much more safer Power Grips.
This model Power Grips strap fits shoe sizes up to walking shoes and some hiking shoes, but it is recommended to obtain the extra-long Power Grips straps for military boots. Those are available elsewhere on these Amazon pages and easy to install on these pedals.
