Pedal protectors are coloured rubber, so not matter how often you drop them they won't show the scratches as much as metal would. Also, as Evan says, they dampen the "EVERYBODY, LOOK AT THE UNICYCLIST WHO JUST FELL OFF" noise your pedals usually make.

I also like them because I keep my unis indoors and they help stop me from chipping / scratching things in the house.

that dampening helps the pedals last longer, as the sudden stress of hitting the ground is lessened. keeps them nice and tight.

Pedal protectors are most useful for indoor riding, as they're very floor-friendly. But they're also handy outdoors to cut that awful dropped-uni noise, as well as to reduce shock and impact on the pedals, helping them last longer.

But they do add weight. My Coker is heavy enough, so I haven't tried them on there, but on the other hand it's all about training so why not? When Cokers fall over, they land HARD.

Did you try the Click Here link on their site? It shows the pedal shapes, so maybe you can just do a comparison.

I have them on all my unis, including my coker. Cheap insurance for me.

they also slow your uni down when you upd, cause as soon as the pedal hits, the rubber grips the road and stops you from having to chase after it. i'd assume this is more of a problem of big wheels because of the greater inertia.

They also make the uni bounce 10' in the air. But I found that my nuts and bolts don't vibrate loose as quickly with them on. I had to modify my pedals (odessy pc's) for the protectors to fit. One of them broke off 3 days later, but I think that was my fault. I'm sure they'd be ok on any pedals that don't need modifying. They're ok I guess. Just make sure you do your pedal modification very carefully and according to the instructions, if it's necessary.
