Either / Or.
Sometimes the right choice is not to decide between two options but instead to reach for both. The Crank Bros Double Shot Pedals are half clipless / half platform for a high level of versatility on the road, trail, or commute. These hybrid pedals use Crank Bros' beloved stainless steel Eggbeater mechanism on one side, giving them reliable retention, simple operation, and unparalleled mud-shedding ability.
On the other side the pedal features a wide, flat platform with molded-in pins and ribs for superior grip, and the alloy body is lightweight while still being durable enough to withstand the inevitable obstacles of everyday riding. A chromoly spindle spinning on a custom inner igus™ LL-glide bearing and outer Enduro cartridge bearing increases longevity over previous designs, and they're protected using an improved double-seal system to keep moisture and muck out.
Includes cleats and mounting hardware. Compatible with standard clipless MTB shoes with two-bolt mounts. Claimed weight is 395 g / pair.

Maybe you have a long commute and want to clip in and maybe sometimes youre heading to neighborhood cafe or pub and just want to get going. These are the perfect pedals for this scenario. Give it a shot or make it a double.
I've got a cross bike that I use for off-pavement riding and commuting. I was switching pedals back and forth between Crank Bros Quattros and clips on my Sidi Dragon shoes and flat pedals with toe clips and straps and regular shoes for commuting. I got these Crank Bros Doubleshots to avoid having to change pedals so often.
Getting the Sidi shoes onto the clips is not easy - first, have to get the pedal to the correct side, and second, securing in the clip has not been reliable, as it was with the Quattros. This was a problem riding on some hilly two-track yesterday - could not quickly engage on uphill start-ups.
The flat pedal sides have a good grip, but without toe clips, can't pull the pedal up to start at stop light, and my feet have gotten dislodged going over bumps.
Overall, I will probably keep these for the benefit of not having to change pedals for different rides, but so far, neither side of the pedal works as well as the two pedals I had before. Compromise.
I only have one bike and these are the third set of this style pedal I've tried. These are easily the best ones I've tried. Low profile when clipped in so they don't hit rocks when climbing over. The forged Aluminum doesn't dent and bend like other pedals in this style. I think I've found my perfect all around pedal
The platform side grips well to shoes and boots, but oddly mtn. bike shoes slip right off. The cleat side is like any crank bros. pedal, easy in easy out.
It's an affordable option to the downhill version. Quick trips to the store without changing shoes and longer rides with secure pedaling are covered with one pedal.
