Is there such a thing as a CF MTB pedal? I would think they'd shatter.

because other carbon fiber things (airplanes, motorcycles, race cars) shatter all the time?

they're more likely to shatter because they're crankbros than because they're carbon.

Just thinking about pedal strike. I have 0 experience with CF, just read somewhere it was strong, but brittle. Sorta like the windshield is a major structural component in a modern car, but it's failure mode is shattering instead of bending, stretching, or bending.
