So I said I would report back on the Begode spiked footplates after I had done some miles of riding and having clocked up 40 miles I can say that they are definitely worth the upgrade over the standard ones.Giving much better grip and the larger size helps acceleration and braking whilst stability is also improved.The only downside is the cost approx £180 and if you like riding in thin soled shoes as I do in the summer ( suede karting boots) this may not be possible as you can feel the spikes .
