Traction attraction.

The Crank Bros Candy 7 Pedals are now even more stable and efficient with the addition of Traction Pad technology. These polyurethane pads can be swapped out to optimize pedal engagement with whatever shoe you're running thanks to the assorted thicknesses included. They mount up simply to the Candy 7's 6061-T6 aluminum bodies, which have chamfered edges to reduce the likelihood of rock strikes and special ribbing on the faces to improve traction when unclipped. As Crank Bros is famous for, 4-sided entry means quick engagement and some of the best of mud shedding abilities of any pedal system. Inside the forged chromoly spindle, the Candy 7 uses high-quality internals with an Enduro cartridge outer bearing and igus® glide inner bearing protected by a robust Double Seal system for a long smooth life. In the case they see a little too much action, the Candy 7 MTB pedals are easily rebuildable using a Crank Bros Pedal Refresh kit.

Available in multiple colors. Customizable float and release angles. Includes premium brass cleats, and 1 mm and 2 mm traction pads. Compatible with SPD style two-bolt shoes. Claimed weight is 320 grams per pair.

Tough and Good Pedal - One caveat
by Mountain
Cycling Enthusiast
Mount Shasta, CA

I have had CB egg beaters that are still going strong after 20+ years, some original Candy that were just partially rebuilt after 12 years and two pairs of Candy 7. The Candy 7 are tough and reliable too. The caveat is I had what I kept thinking was a loose cleat on the first Candy 7. I lost an end cap and had a bent fin so I decided to buy a new pair. When reading the instruction and looking through the parts I saw these traction pad devices to secure a snug fit if your shoe allows a gap between shoe and pedal. My Sidi Dominators did which explained why the cleat felt loose - it was actually a slight rocking. Problem solved I thought - those thicker traction devices are not easy to install. No vids on the web except one bike shop saying it was a bear. I called CB's and they offered to install at no cost if I shipped them back. So, I had them rebuild the old pair as well. Long story to say, CB's service is awesome - fast and on the mark. And, their prices are great too. The whole rebuild , fix and shipping both ways cost less than $60 for both pedals. It was a pain, but in the end worth it. If you are a CB fan, get these but possibly budget $20 and some time to send them back to have the thicker traction pads installed. It made a huge difference - no more feeling of a loose cleat which was actually slight rocking.

Love these pedals
by Anonymous

I've been using the Candy pedals for mountain biking for years and this latest edition is an awesome upgrade. They provide a stable platform, easy entry and release and love the edition of the traction pad. Highly recommend for XC and trail use.

I Got What I Wanted

A really great pedal. Nice looking. Very well made. What I wanted was more float and I got that with these pedals. Before these, I had Speed Play Light Action. I loved them for the two side entry and these have technically four sides of entry. Entry took a little getting used to. Entry is not straight downward pressure like my Speedplay but a combination of down and forward motion. Exit is the same as all clipless pedals-outward twist of your heal and youre out. The machining of the aluminum and anodizing is high quality. My new favorite clipless System. Lastly, I have to mention I love the added bonus of being able to walk around comfortably in my cycling shoes due to the small clips needed for clip in.

Great Pedal
by MD
Cycling Enthusiast

This probably my fourth set of Candies over the last 8 or 10 years. Overall, a great pedal. Big enough platform to get a foot on, rebuildable, and easy to click in and out. Cleats give just enough float. If I have one constructive criticism its that the cleats are very soft metal and wear fairly quickly.

I give only 4 stars for value because ALL pedals are overpriced.

Great quality and solid feel
by Scott L

Ive been running the plastic version for a while, which I love but they seemed to wear out and need a rebuild in about 6 months. These feel much more solid without a terrible weight penalty. I also like the adjustable pads that allow you to customize how tight or loose the flat part of your shoes are to the pedal. If you like Crank Bros, youll love these
