- DH Clipless Pedals
I won’t let anything but a Time clipless pedal near my MTBs. Bombproof reliability, sweet engagement/release and superb in mud.
Annual bearing change? WTF? I have Times that are over ten years old on their original bearings.This.
I’ve been using Z-Controls for years now and not had to touch them yet.
Which is a bit of a shame as I want an excuse to try the new Mavic versions of them but need one of them to break first….Posted 4 years ago

I wore it for my last run and it knocked 5secs of my time and won me the race 😯

Hi guys need some advice, I am going to get some Clipless Pedals for my DH Hardtail but not sure on what to buy, I have used Shimano M545 SPD’s before which were ok but not great.
I will be using Shimano AM45 MTB SPD Shoe.
So has anyone used any of these:
Crank Brothers Mallet 2 for under £70
Crank Brothers Mallet 1 for under £50
Shimano M647 Clipless SPD for under £50
Time Atac MX6 for under £70
Time Atac DH4 for under £65
Like and dislikes please. At the moment I’m thinking mallets.Posted 4 years ago
OK next question, what the different bwtween these apart from Name, price & weight?Posted 4 years ago
Scott – i use the new mallet dh race pedals on my slackline, did me proud at Eastridge, expensive and i fully expect that, being crank bros i’ll have to use the 5 year warranty a few times but there’s nothing else on the market that ticks as many boxes for me. Dx’s are good but you(i) can’t really ride very well floating on one whilst you try and clip back in having dabbed or come unclipped. Been battering mine for a good few months now, the only negative is that the brass cleats don’t last long at all.Posted 4 years ago

IIRC the more expensive version has adjustable release tension whereas the cheaper one doesn’t. Although mine are adjustable I’ve never felt the need to use it so if it was me I’d go for the cheaper ones.
CaptainFlashheart – crazy really but I wanted a decent platform and a pedal with a bit of float and mud shedding ability, the crank bros were the only pedal on the market that ticked all of those boxes that I was prepared to trust for racing dh. Plenty of them in use on the World Cup dh circuit – even by shimano sponsored riders such as gee and gwin. I’ve used dx’s for a long time but much prefer the crank bros offerings.Posted 4 years ago
Did you consider these steve? http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/mtb-bmx-bike/pedals-pedals-mtb-time-z-strong-freeride-pedals/timepedm355000000000Posted 4 years ago
Also where you base, thought about race DH on you HT? I love it!
They look pretty decent actually Scott. I’m down in West Cornwall and I’ll be racing hardtail cat at the sw champs at gawton in a couple of weeks on super tavi, can’t wait. Last dh race in hardtail cat I did was at tavi woodlands at the club champs which was my first time on the hardtail. Think I like riding my hardtail downhill as much as the dh bike to be honest! Gawton on the hardtail is loads of fun. Your over south east aren’t you mate?Posted 4 years ago
