Crank Brothers Candy 2 Pedals
Many moons ago, Crank Brothers introduced their Candy pedals at Interbike’s outdoor demo. When the day was over, I bought a demo pair for a song, and some eight or nine years later they still work just fine. And while I’ve never personally had any issues with Crank Brothers pedals (and I own five pair) I’m to understand that their customer service is second to none.
The most noticeable difference in the updated design is that the Candy 2, 3 and 11 models feature a two-piece machined aluminum body (the entry-level Candy 1 still have a composite body). The various models also feature different materials and bearing configurations, which is reflected in the price, of course.
Formerly the Achilles heel of Crank Brothers pedals, the old cleats have been redesigned. The premium brass cleats use a more durable alloy and feature a two-bolt washer (similar to Shimano cleats) for up to 2.2mm of side to side adjustment.
The Candy 2 pedals retail for $90 and carry a five year warranty. Visit www.crankbrothers.com for more info.
