Speedplay Zero Chromoly Pedals

Speedplay pedals are incredibly lightweight thanks to intelligent engineering. The engagement mechanism is housed in the cleat, not the pedal, allowing you to have a double sided pedal with one mechanism (rather than one on each side of the pedal).

  • Zero to 15 degrees of micro-adjustable float
  • Easy cleat set up and adjustment
  • No complicated spring tension adjustments
  • No fumbling - dual sided entry
  • Half the weight of most clipless systems
  • Excellent cornering clearance
  • Weight (each): 108g
  • Spindle length: Chrome-Moly 53mm
  •  Road
  •  Weight (g): 216
  •  Axle Material: Cromoly Steel
  •  Cleats Included

No other pedal system comes close to offering the superior adjustability or cutting-edge performance features of the Zero. Speedplay have created and patented the most technically advanced pedal system ever, featuring a choice of either a fixed position or up to 15 degrees of micro-adjustable float. Once you compare the features of Zero pedals to any other brand, you'll find that other pedals systems are no match and like all Speedplay pedals, they have accomplished this without compromise by ensuring that the locking edges of our pedals and cleats are made of metal, not plastic. No other pedal system offers the precise adjustment or convenience of independently adjustable fore-aft, side-to-side, and rotational foot positions. Unlike the inexact set-up of traditional cleats, each of the three critical foot-axis adjustments of Zero cleats can be set or changed without affecting the position of the other two adjustments. This feature also eliminates guesswork and misalignment when replacing cleats.

Zero pedals use precision cartridge and needle bearings - three of them instead of two, which are found in most other pedals, allowing the Zero to be thinner for a lower stack height, better cornering clearance, and reduced aerodynamic drag. Like all Speedplay Pedal Systems, the locking edges of Zero pedals and cleats are metal-on-metal for increased durability.

The Zero cleat fits any shoe with a 3-hole or 4-hole mount and has a built-in grease port for easy bearing lubrication so maintenance is easy.

Dual side entry: The symmetrical double-sided pedal self-locates just by stepping down into the cleat whether the pedal is right side up, upside down or anywhere else in its rotation. 

The choice is yours: The Zero allows rotational float to be precisely micro-adjusted to the exact range needed or set in a fixed-position anywhere within the 15-degree adjustment range.

The lowest stack height: The Zero cleat positions your foot closer to the top of the spindle for improved power transfer: 11.5mm stack height for 3-hole mounting or 8.5 mm stack height for 4-hole mounting.

Cornering clearance: The thin pedal profile of the Zero pedal lets you power through corners where your rivals coast (37 degrees).

Large and stable pedalling platform: The Zero Pedal System provides the same solid connection as conventional single-sided pedals, but with Speedplay's unique, inverted design the cleat provides the platform once the cleat in engaged.

True locking mechanism: The Zero's locking mechanism does not rely on spring tension for security, so entering and exiting Zero pedals is easy, but unintended release is virtually impossible

The best pedals around, excellent price and service as always from merlin cycles
I think these are the best clipless pedals made. This review is completely based on my own experience using the pedals, and is independent of anyone else's opinions and/or marketing information. The benefits I have noticed are as follows: 1. The fore/aft AND side/side adjustment allow for superior cleat positioning. This meant I was able to move the cleat inside as far as it would go, allowing me to rotate my left heel in without the heel of my shoe striking the crank. A BIG PLUS! I had problems with this using my old Look pedals. Another advantage of this lateral adjustment is depending on the amount of adjustment you need, I think it could save you having to buy longer pedal spindles. Why other manufacturers haven't done this is a head scratcher! 2. Since the amount of float can be adjusted to any degree desired, you can set each foot independently depending on what feels comfortable. This also allows your feet to rotate to their natural position--also a big advantage over other pedal/cleat systems. 3. There is absolutely no tension on the float, which means it SAVES YOUR KNEES. 4. The lower stack height of the pedal and cleat brings your shoe closer to the center of the pedal spindle. The difference between my Look pedals and the Speedplay pedals was 10mm. This allowed me to lower my saddle by the same amount, which has been good for my lower back. 5. The pedals are the same on both faces. You definitely don't fumble around as much trying to get locked in. 6. The pedal system comes with the adapter plates and shims to mount the cleats onto your shoes. Thank you, Speedplay. 7. There is no creaking between the cleat and pedal (thanks to the metal-to-metal interface) like I have noticed with other pedal systems. The cleats are more expensive, but definitely well worth it because they last longer. You don't have to worry about chipping the cleat on a rock or something because the top plate and locking clip spring are all metal, as is the bowtie plates on the pedal itself. There was a bit of a learning curve for me when clipping in. I found I had to rotate my foot slightly while pushing more with the ball of my foot (first metatarsal joint). This is nothing bad--just different. It doesn't take that long to get used to. The first couple of times I clipped in, the spring was incredibly stiff. I had lubricated as recommended by Speedplay. I'm not sure if it was just because they were brand new, or if it was just that I needed to learn the nuances of the locking mechanism itself. A word of advice is to lubricate the locking spring clips and bowties with dry lube. It makes clipping in much easier and the float silky smooth. I have no problem recommending these pedals to anyone.
Amazing product, will never use another pedal! Great feel and connection to the bike! Superb.
A few rides in and I'm very happy. I was having problems with my old Keo pedals being both too loose and too hard to get out of. The speedplays hold on tight but give that little bit of float and entry/exit is easy as - well, entry is slightly different to Keo cleats but not hard.
Purchased these on friends recommendation, after using Shimano SPD SL pedals for years. They were easy to set up and so far after 2 rides feel as comfortable as the previous pedals. It will take a few more rides for the engaging/disengaging of the pedals to become reflex
I used time pedal and cleat, its consumed very fast. At first, the Speedplay cleat is very hard to catch to pedal, but after 20 times release and catch, its become smooth. Easy to setup, you should use with cleat cover.
Easy to get in and out of. Adjustable float is nice. Cleats are somewhat awkward to walk on; recommend getting some covers. Reasonably light and decently priced.
I have advanced osteoarthritis in one knee and started to use Speedplays by recommendation from a cycling G.P. (first cat.). My knee has been less trouble by far although it took about six months before I really noticed any improvement, The Chromoly pedals are fine but read the instructions regarding both fitting and lubrication if you want trouble free operation. As an aside, be aware that chromoly and stainless pedals have a different axle length to their lightweight brethren (which are a little shorter).
