***UPDATED REVIEW

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.

I used powergrips when they first came out on my mountain bike of the time and like them, but finally switched over to clipless because the powergrips were too small/short and I had to wear special shoes to fit the powergrips (I have size 14 (49 European) feet).

I ride a recumbent now and after my clips wore out again, I decided to try these extra large sized powergrips. These are large. I have them on the smallest/shortest setting and they are still slightly too big for my running shoes. I tried the regular ones and they are still too short. I would have thought that they would have more overlap in sizes between the two kinds of straps.

Other than that, they've worked great on my recumbent. My legs and feet were a little sore after my first long ride, so I know I'm using my muscles a little differently. I am keeping these and would recommend them to others.

Oh yeah, the pedals seem to work great too. I was worried that they were too narrow (tried some previous pedal strap combos from powergrip and my feet were too wide), but these are okay for me.

These are great I've been riding with them on my mountain bike for a good 8 years now and wouldn't have anything else. I live in Japan and often commute on my Cannondale F5--commute along crazy twisty rural and small town Japanese roads where one must kick out of the peddles quickly now and then so they're great for city commuting. Also great for getting some pull when climbing and for longer distances as well. i.e. I once rode to the 5th climbing station on Mt. Fuji--very steep mile after mile all uphill and they worked like a charm. Try em you won't be disappointed.

These are nice. I have always had trouble with clipless pedals and consider them a real pain, so I switched to these. They keep your foot nice and tight on the pedal. For full disclosure, I'll say that I use these on a recumbent trike, not bike, so I'm not sure how easy it is to get in and out of these in a jiffy. I like the product a lot, though, so I bought a second pair to install on my bike. One small issue you should be aware of is that, due to the geometry of the strap with respect to your foot, if you make it quite tight, you can easily feel it on the side of your foot, but this may not bother you at all. The product certainly works.

I don't understand why the pedal itself is so narrow on these. I like the power grips and would love to use them on a wider/bigger pedal, but for me this pedal is just so narrow. I plan on picking up some wide metal pedals and then attaching the powergrips to those, and I suggest anyone else with wider feet think about doing the same.

I returned this product because the strap was too stiff and too short for me. I didn't want to go through the process of changing to a longer strap and waiting (however) long for it to become softer.
I found that the pedals on my Schwinn recumbent bike work just fine, so I transferred them. They use an adjustable heavy rubber strap which is much softer.

a triathlon with a short bike section makes good use of these, very fast transition time run to bike.
i took off a star because the bolt that tightens the strap is very easy to strip out the hole it inserts into.
IMHO this is quite a flaw.

I was leery of clipless pedals because I wanted to be able to wear regular shoes, and the idea of being locked into a pedal wasn't appealing. However, I wanted to take advantage of the extra power of the upstroke. I found out about these on a cycling board and decided to try them out. I am hooked on Power Grips. Yes, like clipless you have to get used to getting in and out of them, and yes, you will likely fall at some point. However, I got used to them fairly quickly, and now getting in and out is second nature.

Will definitely use these on any bike I own now.
