Running a Look-style Delta cleat also means spares are readily available. Release tension is adjustable and the overall quality for the price is impressive. Stack height is quite high at 20mm, but the mechanism feels reassured and secure under power.

The overall feel is good and the presence of cartridge and needle bearings is impressive at this price range. The classy looks and smooth performance offer good value for money, but performance riders may want to find a pedal with a lower stack height. The Genetics are a good choice for the enthusiast on a budget or for anyone after reliable performance in a tried and trusted design that won’t let you down.
