However you take your eggs, you can't deny that Crank Brothers' Eggbeater Pedals have earned themselves a reputation rivaling the greasiest, most delicious diner breakfast — albeit for a few different reasons. Their minimalist design has earned a devoted following amongst the XC/trail set for its ease of use and reliability, with a four-sided entry and knee-friendly 15 and 20-degree float options.
Crank Brothers constructs the Eggbeater's main body and spindle with stainless steel, tough enough for trail use and with a mud-shedding design that will allow you to take your feet out of the pedals on short notice if you encounter a rough section of trail, then clip back in quickly to start pedaling again. The Eggbeater cleats are so small that they actually recess to sit flush with the sole of your shoe, allowing for less cleat damage and making it easier to walk around before or after your ride.

on my second pair now, passed the first set to my son. Have really held up well and have been super happy. Great pedals for what you pay for them.
That price is for unity or a pair
Solid, easy to get in/out; easy to clean.
