The crankbrothers candy is an iconic pedal designed by Carl and Frank, the original founders of crankbrothers, they were tired of getting stuck in mud-covered pedals with no way in or out.Â They realised that existing pedals were too complicatedâ€¦.It started with a simple question: what is the best way to attach a shoe to a crank?Â To answer this question, Carl and Frank created a system with only two moving parts hinging on a spring.Â This system became known as the eggbeater pedal, and later it was adapted into the candy pedal.Â
The Candy is really diverse and is used by a wide range of riders.Â We have seen them out on the trail, at cyclocross races and even on commuter bikes.Â The cage around the 4 point engagement system inspires confidence and offers a great alternative to the eggbeater pedal if you want more of a pedal body surface area.

As with the rest of the crankbrothers range the pedals are fully serviceable with a level 1 / 2 service kit (product code CRB-11729).Â Servicing is simple and does not require any specialist tools, just a flat head screwdriver, socket wrench and 8mm allen key to hold the pedal by the axle. We recommend that the pedal is cleaned and greased every 30 hours of riding and the bearings are inspected for wear.
