I was a little bit reluctant to try these mid-level KEO pedals, but other being slightly heavier than the up market offerings from Look, they seem great so far. Unlike the bottom end KEO Flex, these didn't break the second time out and seem pretty sturdy. I don't expect that they'll wear as well as models with the stainless steel plate embedded in them, but I'll wait and see.
Picked up on great BTD daily to mate with a 2014 Madone 4.7.
After 1500 miles
Pros sturdy, fairly quiet, no hot spots, adjustment a snap, enough grip on pedal to ride short distance in a tennis shoe
Cons white color is tough to keep clean (but perfect match to a white bike)
I bought these to replace 5 year old Look Keo Classic 1s that broke. These are great in that they feel solidly constructed and I think they might be a little lighter as well. HOWEVER, they do squeak (I remedy this by rubbing a little candle wax on my cleats on the contact points- every pair of Looks I've ever owned has done this but the wax method works). Another somewhat big problem they don't seem to be weighted properly so that when your foot isn't in the pedal, it doesn't fall backward so you can push it forward to pop your foot in. Maybe the hearings are a little tight or just need to be broken in on mine. Decent pedals all around.
These are my new go-to pedal. Same easy in and out as the original Keo Classic, with more support underfoot like the Keo Blade (I tried the Blades and decided they weren't for me, very firm retention, no adjustment, and I always worried about the carbon spring breaking).
A better value than either the Blade or Keo Max as well, especially when BTD puts them on sale!
Well I bought these in the hopes of getting this one style of bike which white would of looked good but I changed my mind as I do some time and got another and the black or gray color would of looked better other wise very happy great price.
I've had these since Dec. 2014 and I am very happy with these pedals. Easy to adjust, easy to clip in and out, easy to maintain, and at the sale price, easy on the wallet. Occasionally I miss the clip when starting from a dead stop, but that could be operator error as much as it could be the way the pedal hangs. Buy these now if you want a reliable lightweight pedal.
First time using a pedal other than Speedplay and I am satisfied. Still early, but I like that it is much easier to clip in and out than my Old Speedplay and with the larger pedal I feel as though I have a bit more leverage.
