Our review

Very light and good performance in the mud but a bit fiddly
Skip to view product specifications

Look’s new Quartz pedals now have firmer springs, and use a sprung front rather than rear bar. They’re pretty light for the price.


The cleat system is fiddly, with wafer-thin shims to position between the cleat and midsole. Get it right and the system works well, with a clean exit and entry.

Feel is still a bit vague compared to the click of a Shimano SPD pedal, though, and the feeling of the sprung front bar does take some getting used to after rear-sprung SPD designs.


Bearings are smooth and sealing is good, but we’ve had to service a pair of Quartzes after one hard winter of use.
