  • Dual Sided 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. No kicking, no fumbling, no looking; just step down and go.
  • Your Choice of Micro-Adjustable Float or a Fixed Position: 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° adjustment range.
  • All Three Foot-Axis Adjustments can be Set Independently of One Another: 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.
  • 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. 8.5 mm stack height for 4-hole mounting
  • Unbeatable Cornering Clearance: The thin pedal profile of the Zero pedal lets you power through corners where your rivals coast - 39°
  • Large Stable Pedaling 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.
  • Quality Without Compromise: Zero pedals use precision cartridge and needle bearings - three of them instead of two found in most other pedals - which allows 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 durability and safety, unlike our competitors who use engagement edges made of plastic.
  • Fits More Shoes: The Zero cleat fits any shoe with a 3-hole or 4-hole mount.
  • Easy Maintenance: A built-in grease port for easy bearing lubrication.
  • 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.

      Comments about Speedplay Zero Chrome-Moly Road Pedals:

      I converted to these pedals after buying new shoes. I purchased a pair of Sidi Laser shoes with a very stiff sole. There were some adjustments needed after coming from SPD-SL 105 pedals. I needed to lower my saddle by almost 3 inches due to stack height being much lower with the speedplays. I also moved my cleats more out towards my toe since they provide a larger platform overall. Until this was accomplished I was very uncomfortable with hotspots and not only foot numbness but downright pain.

      Following the instructions explicitly made clipping in and out effortless. When over tightening the screws clipping in was very difficult and near impossible. The initial reaction is that they are way too loose and will never stay in place but the instructions work when followed to a "T". I have also been very religious about keeping them clean and lubed with teflon dry lube and have had no problems, so I cannot comment on letting them get overly dirty and associated reliability issues. I did purchase the coffee shop covers but due to the amount of metal that needs to wear down to affect performance, they seem much more durable.

      Overall I would recommend these pedals. They do feel a little like walking on ice with the amount of effortless float but I have not had any accidental releases so far. Positive experience overall.

      superior pedal

      By PC Mountain

      from Fort Myers, FL

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Speedplay Zero Chrome-Moly Road Pedals:

      Previously I used Shimano PD-5700 105 pedals but I started having knee pain and I hoped that the more float of Speedplays might alleviate this issue. Also, I was never entirely happy with clipping out on SPD-SL pedals because the process was somewhat sticky and jerky. I'm about 2 months into using chromoly Speedplay Zeros and I think I've used them enough that I can do a review.

      My first few rides on these pedals was a heaven and hell experience. It was heaven when I was clipped in but hell when I was clipped out and trying to get back in. These pedals definitely have a break in period! At first, clipping in was so difficult and frustrating that I thought about selling them. I'm fairly lightweight (145 lbs.) and that's probably part of the problem. Lighter-weight people are going to have more trouble and a longer break in period. For really light people you might want to have someone heavier break them in for you. I'm glad I stuck with them though because clipping in got much easier and I now see that this is a vastly superior pedal system.

      Once you get through the break-in period clipping in becomes very easy. Keep the pedal flat, line up the cleat, push down firmly until you hear a slight click and then push down even harder and you will feel and hear a loud snap. Giving you foot a slight movement like you are squishing a bug helps too. One excellent feature of these pedals is that they are dual sided so you don't really have to look at the pedal when clipping in. And lining up the cleat is easy because the cleat really grabs the pedal. In fact, you can pedal fairly easily while not clipped in because the pedal fits so snugly into the cleat even while unclipped. That was particularly helpful during my learning period and I had to pedal much of my time unclipped.. A little bit of dry lube on the cleat helps too but don't overdo it because too much can muck them up.

      Clipping out on these shoes has been easy from day one. A slight movement of your feet away from the bike and they pop right off smoothly. They've never inadvertently clipped out on me.

      As I mentioned at the beginning, I bought these pedals in hopes that they'd be good for my knees. The flexibility of float certainly does help my knees.. My old pedals had about 4 degrees of float. Speedplay Zeros can be adjusted from 0 to 15. I started with 8 degrees of float or right about in the middle. I liked that setting and felt improvement in my knees but just to experiment I did a few rides with 10-12 degrees of float. That was too much for me so I went back to 8 and I really think that's perfect. Any higher than 8 and I feel less in control when out of the saddle. That's one of the main selling points of these pedals, the adjustability. It really is great. As I said, the float has helped my knees but it's not just the float that helps. These pedals lock in at the balls of your feet whereas other systems feel more like it's your toes that are locked in, like with ski bindings. The position of Speedplay cleats and pedals feels very natural giving your legs a much more natural range of motion. Your legs move how they want to move without restriction.

      These pedals are incredibly light and I also feel like I'm getting better power transfer and handling with these pedals. I don't have a way to prove it but I certainly feel it during sprints and when cornering.

      My only complaint with Speedplays is that they are difficult to walk in. However, I'm diligent about putting on Kool Kovers and those really help. I keep them in my jersey pocket and snap them on if I'm going to walk in grass or dirt or any farther than 10'. Using the Kool Kovers has keep my cleats clean.

      I can't speak to the durability of these pedals and cleats because I've only used them for 3 months but so far they still look great. I also can't speak to ease of cleat installation because I had the store that I bought them from do the install. They did a great job and I haven't had any issues with them loosening up.

      Overall, I'm enamored with Speedplay Zero pedals and can't imagine going back to SPD-L or trying anything else. If you have any sort of pain issues you have to try them but really anyone and everyone is going to benefit from these pedals.

        Pedals work great for me. I also bought a pair for my wife who had difficulty getting clicked into them, she is small and light (~100 lbs.) I wouldn't buy these pedals unless you weigh at least 120 lbs or else plan on spending quite of time and effort getting them to work for you.

          Comments about Speedplay Zero Chrome-Moly Road Pedals:

          After borrowing a friends bike that had Speedplay x-2's I decided to change from my old style look pedals to Speedplay. I went with the zero model after checking prices and reading many reviews. They are definitely stiff when trying to clip in but once you're in they perform great. Getting out requires a little more effort than the x-2 but no more effort than my old pedals. I've only ridden them 4 times and the entry is getting easier already. I like the fact that you can adjust the float independently on each shoe. I'm very pleased with my decision and don't see myself going back to the look style pedals.

          The spring was so tight entry was impossible. After lots of fiddling, I decided to return them. It would not work no matter the force applied- even the bike shop couldn't make it work. Exchanged for Speedplay Light Action, which work much better.

                Comments about Speedplay Zero Chrome-Moly Road Pedals:

                I have been riding these for 2 years now. I made the switch after having some scary experiences with some house brand "Look" style cleats disengaging while pedaling hard out of the saddle in the middle of a traffic circle. I have had no such problems since. I never considered single sided entry a problem with all my pedals before, but I must admit that I do feel a little spoiled now with the ease of dual sided entry.

                I LOVE the effective platform size that this system also gives. No more worries about "hot foot" on the long club rides.

                The ONLY complaint I could offer up is the maintenance to the cleats. Dirt is a real problem here. Also, I am at the point I now need to spend the $40 to replace the woren cleats because I never got the "coffee shop" covers and walking on these cleats does do a number on them. But then again, that is true of any cleat. I guess it just burns more because the cleat on these is so much more complicated and often expensive.

                All in all, i don't see myself going back to "Look" or SPD-SL systems anytime soon.

                Nice pedal for the money. Love the dual sided entry. Setup is straight-forward and simple. Good ergonomics. If there are any down sides it would have to be cleat replacement cost and cleat requires care from lubing and dry lube for engagement ease. Still a good deal.
