Our review

Lightweight SPD compatible performance at an excellent price
Skip to view product specifications

SPD fans will feel instantly at home with the compatible Wellgo pedal. It doesn’t have quite the ‘thunk’ that comes with the positive engagement or release of the Shimano, which might take some getting used to, but we didn’t find it an issue. In fact, it delivers a minimally smooth ride.

There wasn’t as much float as we’d normally expect from SPDs and we were aware of feeling the cleat on the axle more, but that didn’t prove to be a problem in use. The overwhelming benefit of this pedal is its weight. Coming in at 300g it’s nicely light at a not-too-shabby price.

Although it’s proved to be durable throughout our test, we have to say that it wouldn’t be our first choice for something that was required to bear the brunt and grunt of our workaday trail bashing. But for a lightweight bike build, or even a second set of pedals (if you already run SPDs), it’s hard to argue with the W-01’s price, weight and quiet no-fuss performance combination.
