The Eggbeater 1 pedal provides race quality performance with Crank Brother's four-sided entry and minimalism. The eggbeater 1 pedal is an ultra-lightweight clipless pedal designed for cross-country and cyclo-cross use.
The design for the original crank brothers pedal began out of frustration. The founders of crank brothers, Carl and Frank, were tired of getting stuck in mud-covered pedals with no way in or out. They realised that existing pedals were too complicated It started with a simple question: what is the best way to attach a shoe to a crank? To answer this question, Carl and Frank created a system with only two moving parts hinging on a spring. This system became known as the eggbeater pedal, and later it was adapted into the candy pedal. A word on maintenance In order to keep your crank brothers pedals running smoothly, they recommend the following:
Excellent mud-shedding: the design is very open
4-sided entry: clip in on all 4 sides of the pedal, by pushing forward or pulling backwards on the
Extremely lightweight: pedal design is very simple with only a few key parts
Increased float: 6° of side-to-side rotational play. The float of the pedal allows for the rid
Fit adjustment: crank brothers premium cleats can be adjusted for either 15° or 20° relea
Customise the fit between your shoe and the pedal by using tread contact sleeves
Crank brothers pedals are fully re-buildable for simple maintenance. There is a consistency in part
When servicing this pedal, use the rebuild kit designed for level 1 & 2 pedals
Carl and Frank (hence Crank Brothers) have always been keen MTBers. Ever since they were engineers working for a diving equipment company in Southern California in the late 1980s, they have been exploring ideas of how they could design cycling products that would improve their riding experience. In 1994 they launched their first product: the highly innovative “Speed Lever”. This telescopic tyre lever made installing/removing tyres from rims much easier. The M series mini tools and the Power Pump range of mini hand pumps followed 4 years later; the latter including the proprietary “high volume/high pressure” switch that is still appreciated today. The brand’s breakthrough, however, came when Crank Brothers launched the Eggbeater pedal in 2001: an extremely lightweight, minimalist pedal with superb mud-shedding capability and 4-sided entry. It is this same pedal platform that paved the way for subsequent pedal models to cover all MTB disciplines – Candy, Mallet and 5050. Today many of the top athletes in the World ride crankbrothers pedals. You will find they are well represented at top level cross-country MTB, Cyclo-cross and World Cup DH events. Innovative design of aesthetically disruptive products remains the core mission. All crankbrothers products are technical, durable and beautiful.
