Genetic Chimera pedals review£34.99

Double-sided clipless/ flat pedals

BikeRadar score4/5

These are a great idea for anyone who rides regularly in normal as well as cycling shoes, or for anyone who hasn’t ridden clipless and wants to start gently, one foot at a time.

They’re mountain bike-style Shimano SPD-compatible rather than road clip, with four degrees of float, and it’s easy to loosen the clipping-in mechanism for initial emergency quick releasing. 

The pedals have an aluminium body and chromoly axles with sealed bearings that have continued to spin smoothly over months of testing in all weathers. They weigh 356g, and come with a set of alternative height screw-in rubber pads for the flat side, to help hold your shoe in place.
