Rated 4 out of 5 by Bikenerd Top quality but pricy
Incredible pedals, grips far better than both my saints and 50/50's very durable, looks great but incredibly expensive (for me anyway). Worth it for amazing pedals but you could make do with cheaper pedals and use the cash on something else.

Questi pedali offrono una superficie d'appoggio molto ampia che, insieme all'elevato numero di pins, conferisce una presa eccezionale per il piede. Belli ed estremamente robusti, sono un'ottima scelta. Con le 5.10 i piedi sono letteralmente attaccati e a volte risulta anche difficile cambiarli di posizione. Un reminder per il primo uso: i pedali arrivano con i pins da montare, per cui ricordatevi di stringerli bene altrimenti tendono ad allentarsi e andare persi.

Muy buenos pedales. Base amplia y generosa. La cantidad de clavos que tiene cada cara del pedal hace realmente imposible que se te escape. Te notas muy bien cogido. Yo los uso con unas zapatillas fiveten y van de lujo. Quizas un poco anchos a nivel de volumen, pero como cualquier otro pedal de plataforma. Aconsejanles 100%.
Añadir liquido sellante a los clavos antes de enroscarlos ayuda a fijarlos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flayer Strong, wide, grip
After having 5 years of mostly DX pedals, which are very strong, I wanted something longer because sometimes I felt I lost control because most flats I tried had to small platform, Defacto are expensive, but definetly worth it, hope they will last me a long time.

I love these pedals. They have all the features I am looking for when buying a product. They are bulletproof, need nearly zero maintenance and most importantly, they hold your foot as nothing else. It grips like crazy, even if your foot is not completely on the pedal they just won't slip. I have two pairs currently and have never maintained the one I use on my main bike, but the one that is on the other is like 4 years old and only needed to disassemble twice which was easy as a breeze. Absolutely recommended. Never mind the price it will pay back with time. Also support a company who makes the design and the manufacturing in-house. Way to go. Straitline seems to sustainable business. Straitline just p*sses excellence. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Insanely good pedals!
Ok first I have to say these are ridiculously expensive pedals, abut if you can get over that then they are insanely good.
Superb build quality, surprisingly light, massive platform and a huge amount of pin options. The anodized finish is seriously tough and super smooth (I had blue to go on the bottle rocket).
Finish is always amazing and CNC is super detailed on Straitline stuff, so the most important thing is the grip. I can honestly say I've never ridden a more confidence inspiring pedal. The large platform and deep concave is great, but the pins have a much smaller 'teat' than other pins, so they grip much better than the standard wider grub screws. You also get a load of extras and a custom in spanner in the box.
The only one complaint I do have is that with my size 10s, I seemed to hit the chainstay with my shoes a lot more than on other pedals, not a major thing but just worth noting. I can live with that as just adjusted my foot position slightly, and as they're so large and grippy it's not really an issue anyway. But it did take a couple of rides to get used to.
If you can afford them and appreciate superb quality stuff (or are just a cnc junkie like me) then there's really no better pedal out there without doubling the price.
