Rated 5 out of 5 by Vrykolakas27 Great Pedal
I've only been riding XC for just over a year, and recently decided to step into the DH world, too. I purchased an Norco Aurum and was looking for something to stick on it that was going to be strong, grippy and suitable for wide shoes, in replace of the stock pedals that came on the Aurum.
From a rider who is less experienced, these pedals seem really strong. I put them on and took them for a spin, and my feet never budged once. I wear Nike cross-trainers that get good coverage from the pedal width.
They are extremely easy to service and maintain. The instruction manual explains how to grease them very easily. It literally took me 10-20 minutes to disassemble both pedals, grease them, and put them back together, plus they have self-lubricating bearings.
If you're worried about price, I'll say this...If you purchase a bike in the medium-high end range, why would you put a $20 set of pedals on a 6K bike? In my opinion, they are worth the money. Time will tell how they hold up as I advance in my riding.
As for weight, I can't comment as I don't really have any need for specific weight pedals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Damo85 Nice grippy pedal
If you can get yourself to spend the money on these pedals they wont disappoint. Nice and grippy and lite. Hopefully for the value of them they last a while.

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
