CrankBrothers Egg Beater SL Pedal is made with stainless steel body and wings. The Egg Beater is a brilliantly designed pedal for folks who eschew bells and whistles and instead prefer simple elegance. Thanks to the 4-sided wing of the Egg Beater, it's literally impossible to not clip in with lightning quickness as soon as the bottom of your shoe hits the pedal. The Egg Beater wing rotates either forward or back under the pressure of your foot to quickly and smoothly engage the cleat bolted to the sole of your shoe. The Egg Beater provides 6 degrees of rotational float. Specs: Weight - 266 grams per pair; Spindle - forged scm435 chrome steel; Body - 17-4 ph stainless steel; Wings - 17-4 ph stainless steel; Spring - 300 series stainless steel; End Cap - composite; Standard Cleat - premium brass; Road Cleat - available separately; Release Angle - 15 or 20 degrees; Shims included.

I expect my pedals to keep me connected to my bike, until I'm ready to come out. I expect you expect your pedals to do the same. And to these ends we must all choose our pedals.
In nearly every facet of my life I favor function over form, and I favor reliability over feature richness. A pretty thing that doesn't work when I need it to is useless. A multi-functional device that achieves mediocrity in its 26 capabilities will fall short of my expectations when I most need it. I demand something simple, functional, and reliable.
Enter the Crank Brothers Egg Beater pedals! These are, quite simply, simplicity. You'd be hard pressed to engineer a mountain biking pedal that performs as reliably and has fewer failure modes than the Egg Beater. I ride HARD, and I have never been disappointed with my decision to ride Egg Beaters on all my mountain bikes. These pedals work reliably when they're clean, when they're dirty, and anywhere in between.
Bought the pedals for my wife as she likes the SPD type cleat, but with Shimano, you get cleat adjustments while you don't with the egg beaters so it takes some time to wear down cleats so that they clip in without too much effort. But once they wear to a certain point, you can un-clip when you least expect it.
The cleat is not high quality like Shimano's steel SPD's. Overall, my wife has stopped complaining so I guess they are working okay.
These are my favorite pedals. I have a set on all my mountain and road bikes. They work as advertised in the mud and are really durable. I've also used these on my road bikes for several years. They look good and are light weight, but the best feature is the ability to use a nice mountain biking shoe when road riding. I have these paired with Sidi Dominator shoes and have never slipped on a convenience store floor while stopping for a drink.
