We take a look at seven popular clipless pedal models: which is best?
This test confirmed for us that choosing a pedal is a really personal decision. Hence, there are lots of high scores but no 10/10. All offered pros and cons, and each tester had a favourite.
However, there was no consensus and plenty of disagreement. We all agreed that the Speedplay allowed most personalisation and is the only pedal with adjustable float that doesn’t impact on release pressure.
The Time came a close second in terms of adjustment, which at the price was a stand-out feature. Others preferred the easy clip-in of the Look Keo, even though cleat set-up needs more care, while the Shimano 105 SPD SL scored highly for its proven durability and value.
