We're back in the game with a trail rated, trail tested CNC pedal.
The El Guapo Delgado pedal (Delgado means thin) runs on bearings, it completely rebuildable and with tough steel pins (not pointless slippy alloy ones), these pedals grip to your shoes with the performance you need.
Just 427g, with pins in (lots of people quote pin-less weights), only 17mm deep, 100mm wide, 105mm long, these are tough, solid performers that won't let you down.
A 6mm allen key fixing holds them in place. We think they're unbeatable value.
I have to agree. The grip just isn't there. I too have changed pedals. On the up side my 10yr old son is pleased with his new El Guapo pedals and wants to know when he's getting the rest of the bike, like Dad's!
My first review on On-One products and I have to add before i start that as ever the service and price were second to none.Now to the pedals. After a reasonable amount of shopping around I plumped for the El Guapo Delgado Pro Pedal. Fitted onto my bike very nicely and looked the business. It was a new bike and so at first I just thought I was getting used to a new ride, but quickly i realised that the pedals gave little or no grip. I wear five-ten freeriders and usually use a cheap and cheerful DMR Vault V8 a combination that delivered no slip.Looking at the pedals the central spindle is higher (in profile) than the pins so with a flat shoe your point of contact is only at the centre. I suppose with a shoe with more pronounced grips you might get more grip, but with the freeriders i had no purchase on the edges of the pedals at all.I have switched the pedals onto my other bike, and reverted to the V8s and am now firmly connected once more.I felt compelled to write this review after discussing the pedals with a fellow biker, who had also been surprised that the pedals didn't deliver the grip they looked like they should have. Also I was keen to provide feedback to a company who I have nothing but respect for.
