Crank Brothers Eggbeater 2 pedals are the newest version of Crank Brothers classic mud shedding minimalistic 4-sided clipless pedals. The 2 level pedals feature a cast stainless body and stamped steel wings with chromoly spindle. The stamped wings on the Eggbeater 2 only add about 5g when compared to the Eggbeater 3 pedals but come with pretty big cost savings because they are simpler to produce. Aside from the graphics the exterior of the 2016 pedal pretty much looks like the previous model, but it's what is inside that counts right? Crank Brothers completely redesigned the internals starting with an outboard Enduro bearing and igus II glide bearing on the inboard side.
Included with the Eggbeater 2 pedals are a pair of Crank Brothers Premium Brass Cleats that feature 6 degrees of float and a 15 or 20 degree release angle depending on which shoe the cleat with the dot is placed. Plastic shims and a 2.2mm Left to Right adjustment will allow you to position the cleats perfectly on your shoes.
Crank Brothers is so confident in their new pedals that they back them with a 5 year warranty, most other companies offer a year at best.
At first glance when installing the Eggbeaters there doesn''t seem to be an indicator of which side the pedals go on. Crank Brothers sells these pedals all over the world they went with a language neutral indicator, kinda like Ikea furniture. The left pedal has a line around the spindle letting you know it goes on the non-drive side of the bike.
