Speedplay Zero Stainless pedals – in brief review
These use stainless steel rather than chromoly axles, losing 15g and improving long-term looks.
The cleats too are lighter, but otherwise they share the Chromoly’s dual-sided entry, float that’s adjustable from 0 to 15 degrees, and the possibility of independently adjusting fore-aft, sideways and rotational foot positions without affecting the other settings.
Even though we’re uneasy having the small float adjustment screws and locking mechanism at ground level, Speedplays are superbly ergonomic, if quirky, on the bike, but they demand care off it.
