There is roughly a $40 difference between these two pedals. As far as I can tell the only real difference (other than the material) is a few grams of weight and the Carbons have 3 bearings instead of just 1.

Are the Carbon pedals worth the price difference?

you are right, the bearings, and 15 grams of weight, but they show the price difference to be more than $40, $139 for the sprints and $219 for the carbons, i have the sprints and love them, the best road pedal i have ever ridden.

the sprints come in color choice red or grey, carbons (to my knowledge) come in only one color.

according the the website the carbon cro-moly only has 2 bearings. a 15.7mm pedal-spindle distance, vs. 16.5mm for the sprint which has 1 bearing. the carbon also has higher spring tension 12-18nm vs. 9-15nm on the sprints

well probikekit has the carbon for $124 and the sprint for $80..so thats the $40....

I htink I might just get the Sprints and sink that $40 into better shoes
You might need to look around - PBK doesn't have the carbons in stock, and the header says "last few at this price."

That said, bearings are almost always a good thing. At $40, I'd say worth it.
