The kitchen-utensil inspiration behind Crank Brother's mud-clearing pedal design knows no finer expression than the Eggbeater 11 Pedals. With the exception of the stainless steel spring, every bit of steel on the other Eggbeaters -- body, spindle, and wing -- is replaced with cycling's lightweight wonder metal, titanium. They still relish in the slop of trail life, but they approach that slop with the same aloof superiority that a three-star chef might exhibit while indulging a craving at a taco chain. Thanks to the four-sided wing of the Eggbeater 11, it's virtually impossible to not clip in as soon as the bottom of your shoe hits the pedal. The Eggbeater wing facilitates this operation by rotating under pressure to quickly and smoothly engage the cleat. Despite the Eggbeater 11's low weight and ease of use, the platform's real strength is the lack of a, well, a platform. The pedal's open design leaves nowhere for muck to grab onto, so that easy clip-in action is just as easy in three-star mud conditions. The included brass cleats recess flush with the tread on the bottom of your shoes for easy walking, and they're designed for two release angles (15 or 20 degrees) depending on which cleat you bolt to which shoe. Crank Brothers recommends the 15-degree setting if you're new to clipless, but going for the gusto with the 20-degree configuration will allow more body english on the bike without the worry of an accidental release. Needle and cartridge bearings keep the Eggbeater 11 Pedals spinning smoothly and represent a marked improvement compared to the bushings used on OG Eggbeaters. When the time does come for an overhaul, you can take solace in the fact that nobody else's pedals are as easy to service as Crank Brothers'. The pedals include protective shims and all the hardware required for installation. Please Note: Titanium spindles are not for everyone. Crankbrothers recommends a 200lb (90kg) rider weight limit for the Eggbeater 11 Pedals. Sadly, Clydesdal...

Eggbeaters are some of the easiest-to-use clipless pedal systems around. Thanks to the four-sided wing of the Eggbeater 11, it's literally impossible to not clip in with lightning quickness as soon as the bottom of your shoe hits the pedal. The Eggbeater wing rotates either forward or backward under the pressure of your foot to quickly and smoothly engage the cleat bolted to the sole of your shoe. In addition to being quick and easy, the Crankbrothers Eggbeater 11 Pedals are exquisitely light. When it comes to mud, there isn't a better pedal on the market. Eggbeaters are made for slop. Their open design allows dirt, mud, and muck to pass right through as you engage your cleats. These Eggbeater 11 Pedals are the most recent iteration of the top-of-the-line Eggbeater 4Ti pedals. Similarly, they have titanium bodies, wings, and spindles. The spring is stainless steel for durability and consistent tension. And maybe the nicest thing is that no matter where you ride, stainless and titanium will never corrode. The brass cleats for the Crankbrothers Eggbeater 11 Pedals are small so they recess flush with the tread on the bottom of your shoes for easy walking. They're also designed for two release angles -- 15 or 20. The release angle depends on which cleat you bolt to which shoe. Crankbrothers recommends the 15 setting if you're new to clipless. Otherwise, the 20 configuration will give you greater mobility on the bike without the worry of an accidental release. Needle and cartridge bearings will keep the Eggbeater 11 Pedals spinning smoothly -- a great improvement from the old bushings. And when the time comes for an overhaul, keep in mind that nobody else's pedals are as easy to service as Crankbrothers' pedals are. Shims to protect your shoes are included as well as all the hardware you'll need for installation. Please Note: Titanium spindles are not for everyone. Crankbrothers recommends a 200lb (90kg) rider weight limit for the Eggbeater 11 Pedals. Full titanium!
