The pedals are made of good quality materials, and if you're a veteran clipless rider (which I'm not), this is still a great option even on road bikes. Even for a novice like me, it's easy to get used to, I had to decrease the spring to it's lowest settings, it'll be a trial and error method when you get it first to get a good fit for yourself. Adjusting the cleats to the shoes, the spring load adjustment took me 3 tries to get the perfect desired setting I was looking for. Took it on a 150km ride, worked great and felt like my efficiency definitely increased. A great price for a great product. You won't be disappointed.
