Speedplay Light Action Chromoly

Our review

Easy to use but not so great out of the saddle.

The Light Action takes Speedplay’s Zero design and tweaks it so that less force is needed to clip in or release from the pedal. This design uses Speedplay’s non-centring free float with a release angle of 15 degrees. This makes for a comfy ride once you get used to stomping in rather than using the toe first method.


The low stress, free-float set-up makes these a good bet for those with injuries, but sprinters might find they have too much drift powering out of the saddle. However, for those after the performance of a road pedal but who are wary of committing to a single-sided pedal, the Light Action Speedplays are a good choice.


They offer all the performance of a big platform and low stack height and they’re incredibly easy to get in and out of. The ease of engagement makes them a good commuter or fixed wheel pedal, and they also come in a variety of colours.
