    The best of both worlds.

    Crank Brothers' Doubleshot Pedals address the needs of riders who want to be clipped-in sometimes, but also want the freedom to occasionally ride on platforms. Whether you're a newbie to the world of clip-ins or someone who uses your bike for trail riding on the weekends and commuting during the week, the Doubleshot's two-sided design allows you to switch from clipped-in to flat with a flick of the pedals.

    On the clipless side, Crank Brothers includes its classic Egg Beater design, which is easy to get in and out of in a pinch when you get to a technical section of trail. When you're clipped-in, you have the choice of either 15 or 20 degrees of float, and the lightweight aluminum and stainless steel body offers enough durability to handle both the roads and the trails without adding bulk to your frame.

    • A pedal that transitions between clipless and platform
    • Lightweight aluminum pedal body provides wide, stable support
    • Dual-sided cleat entry for easy clip-in
    • Smooth, durable sealed bearings
    • Dial float based on cleat orientation

    Great Trail Pedal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using either flat pedals or SPD pedals for the last 20+ years of mountain biking but decided to finally upgrade my old SPDs. I won't lie, the sale really pushed my hand.

    After 4 rides on them, I was sold...so sold I bought a second set for my other bike.

    I use these with a pair of Five Ten shoes and have had no issues. Sometimes a bit sticky to get into the cleat, but I think the thin spacer included should fix that.

    Once in, they work great providing fantastic "traction" and float. Easy to get out of as well.

    The flat side comes in handy on some of the wet, rooted, and technical climbs here in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    A bit difficult to click into

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    It does the job and is very easy to release from, which is most important. But at this price I thought it would be a little easier to click into. It often takes me 4 or 5 tries to click in which is a hassle on hills and leaves me behind if riding in a group. I also wish it were a bit lighter. I like my Shimano clipless a bit better, though not really much difference.

    Good idea but poor execution

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    They could be really good with the right set of shoes I think, I just haven't found those yet. I got these specifically because I would be able to ride my gravel bike in reg shoes on the platform side and in mtb shoes with the clips on regular long rides. I wasn't concerned about having to flip the pedals to get clipped unlike other mtb pedals due to my background with Shimano's SPD-SL one-sided road cleats.
    Unfortunately, combined with 2 different pairs of mtb shoes that offer any tread for walking up impassible sections, there isn't enough clearance in the pedal's design to clip-in. The black metal bracket and platform shape around the clip mechanism interfere with treads on both sets of shoes I've tried, even with the included cleat spacers.
    The best option would be to use a Dremyl tool or sharp knife to shave away the sole of the shoe where needed, or to use a more road-like cycling shoe with no treads, but are you really willing to go through the trouble of mutilating any $100+ pair of shoes for the sake of using $70 pedals with no adjustability or real servicability?
    Really disappointed honestly

    Not quite what I wanted

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have rode clipless many years and love being clipped into my bike! I wanted to get into more downhill style and wanted a pedal that I could clip in and also ride flat. This design is a great idea until you actually use it... The flat side isn't stable because the cleat on your shoe interferes with your grip, and when you want to ride clipless you have to take the extra time to make sure you're on the right side of the pedal to clip in. Overall good quality product but I'd say choose one or the other and stick with it!

    It’s obvious to me but maybe not everyone sees this. You are not supposed to ride the flat side with a shoe with cleats. When you choose this option you’re basically opting for a “road” pedal because most roadies ride pedals that need to be flipped. If you don’t want that because you’re actually riding trails where you would be inconvenienced by having to flip your pedal then yes, you would go with a regular crank bros or spd etc. what’s funny is that crank bros started as a “4 sided” pedal, then added platforms that made it more like “2 sided” and now we’re down to 1 side and people are still complaining about it. Don’t blame the product here because you don’t know how to use it or which one to pick.

    Just Didn't Work

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These things are built very solidly, unfortunately I had a lot of problem on the trail getting in and out of the clips. I spent too much time with their finicky nature. The flat side is great. I do have nice grip when riding in more a commuter situation (I haven't ridden the flats on trail). Overall, I'll be replacing these going forward.

    My experience has been identical to yours. They're a PITA on the trail. I don't want to worry every time I need to take a dab that I won't get in my pedals. I'm pulling them off.

    Again, it seems like people blame the product for being designed to do what it is supposed to do when the problem is that you all seem to have expected something else when there are perfectly capable products out there by the same company which would suit your needs.

    Great Pedals

      The crank brothers double shot pedals are a really good choice for most that are drawn to wanting both sides on clip ins and flat pedals. Easy to differentiate switching between the two on the trail.

      Great for first timer

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      These pedals are just what I was looking for. I've never used clipped in pedals but I bought these to try it and so far enjoy it. They are very easy to get in and out of, and it's nice being able to flip and ride unclipped if I need. Very happy with my purchase.

      Great for MTB

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I enjoy riding with both flats and cleats, so these pedals are perfect for both. I have had great traction with flats and the clip in side works great as well. The platform is nice and wide so perfect for the new rider trying to get into clip ins.

      Great for Commuting

        Bought these for commuting since I like to wear regular shoes when it's warm and click in during the winter. Read in other reviews that the platform side of the pedal is slippery, but I haven't experienced that. Sticks just fine to my shoes when not clipped in.
