installed these on my road bike that I use to do all my training for races, rides and triathlons. Have been using Look brand pedals my whole riding life. These are lightweight, durable, easily adjustable and perfectly suited for the cycling enthusiast.
Use Look KeO pedals on both bikes so as to not have compatibility issues with shoes, cleats, and cleat covers. I decided to stay with the original non-blade version due to familiarity and a belief the non-blades orient better for clip-in. So far I have been very pleased with this new set which replaced a KeO pair with 43,000 miles. I also like the tension adjustability feature rather than one preset tension.
It's hard to beat the price point. However, the clipless retainer plate wears rapidly, which is why this is my third set,of Look pedals in 4 years. The wear is especially bad if you ride in the rain or on dirty roads and dismount occasionaly. I ride Time, Shimano and the Look. The each have thier quirks but nothing is perfect for every rider. I have the carbon spring version of Time and i see Look is pushing their version. However, with look you have to buy complete new carbon blades to change retention strenghth. With Time you have three adjustments with one carbon plate. Spring or carbon blade? They serve the same funtion, but the spring version is a lot cheaper.
A bit heavy comparing with my carbon fiber version but with a fraction of the price, I can't complain. They spin very quiet and smooth. Hopefully they won't make squeaky sound over time like my carbon pair.
Great pedals, I needed a wider platform for my race bike. They are easy to install, they have the french version of RightLeft on the pedals. I would recommend.
I upgraded from the Keo Easy to the 2 Max peddles, and I am very happy with my decision! The overall quality and construction make it well worth the few extra dollars I spent to upgrade. I couldn't justify the extra expense for the carbon, or titanium, so the 2 Max fit my price point perfectly....
I bought these to equip my new Trek Domane. I have used original Look pedals for the past 20 years and I thought it was time to have new pedals to go with the new bike.
The new Keo platform is similarly shaped to the original cleat, but somewhat smaller. This made it initially challenging to clip in as the attachment point was a bit further back from the toe, but now that I've used it for a while it is second nature to clip in. The included cleats have the 3 degree slop spec and I find that it suits my needs just fine. Not too much give when releasing but not too rigid while riding.
I've not experienced the problems others have reported and, while I'm a big guy (6-4, 210), I'm not a real pedal-masher. I would say that if you are a recreational type, and not a racer, you likely won't have any problems with these.
Great pedal at a great price...have always used look pedals... easy tension adjustment ..very stable platform..always used 0 degree float cleats with their pedals. Work like a charm...
i ride everyday and changed from speedplay to keo.....due to the cleat arrangement, it feels like you use more of your foot when pedaling vs the speedplay ball.
Use these for recreational and past road racing. Very durable pedal with good width for solid power transfer. Easy to adjust release tension and install different color cleats for different float. Only a couple minor complaints cleats wear out quickly and you need to practice the flip which is learning to use the front edge of your cleat to catch the front edge of the pedal and rotate it from roughly vertical to roughly horizontal so you can click in. Once you get it down it becomes second nature and shows others you can at least handle part of your bike! I wish biketiresdirect.com would remove the new Yellow (Alberto Contador Edition) from the description. This color hasn't been available to my knowledge in a couple years!
Bought these to replace Crank Brothers Quattros, which were at the end of there lifespan. I considered these and Speedplays, but didn't like the cleat system on the Speedplays. So far I am very happy with these big platform, seem very well made. There is a bit of a learning curve getting clipping in, but really no big deal.
I am a Masters and Cat 4 racer. I log 7,000 miles plus per year. A lot of my friends use Shimano pedals! Look Keos are, in my opinion, a much better choice. I religiously use cleat covers and my friends that use shimanos have problems every season with their pedalscleats!
