Speedplay X2 Road Pedals $185.00
The Speedplay X2 pedal has all of the technical benefit of the X1 version: It provides knee-saving lateral rotation, without the self-centering action inherent in most pedals - your knees don't have to work against spring tension. Their compact, low-profile shape positions your foot closer to the spindle, for optimal power transmission, not to mention the unmatched cornering clearance. And their dual-sided design provides the easiest entry/exit of any clipless pedal.
The X2 is different from the X1 in that it has Stainless Steel spindles instead of Ti. They come standard with cleats and mounting hardware and are compatible with virtually every road shoe in the marketplace.
Please Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, we are unable to ship Speedplay products outside the United States.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really like this pedal. I have ridden about five times since installing these pedals and have never been more comfortable and efficient on the bicycle, ever. When I ordered the pedals I also ordered shoes; it was way over due... at least decades overdo. The x2's were easy enough to put together and line up on the shoe. Once installed the difference was incredible. The power transmission is to the point that doing that after work 15 mile ride ...... isn't enough ..... now I need to find a longer ride.
I have some trouble getting the pedals into the cleats, but, for now, I will attribute it to operator error. The x2's are my first clipless pedals so I have to adjust a little. Also, I have had to make some adjustments on the rollers. I had more control of the bicycle with clipped pedals and shoes, but they make my knees hurt. The SpeedPlays take care of that. I have never been as comfortable on my bicycle as I am now in a large part, due to the x2 pedals and the amazing amount of lateral motion you get.
Overall, the x2's are a great pedal for the money and (see Juan Carlo's review).... if I wear them out I will by another pair.
20 years and still going strong.

these are the best pedals ever. So I bought mine when there was just one Speedplay pedal model. Those were the days, Nirvana was at the top of the charts, and there were few options in the pedal world. Like Nirvana speedplay was something different, something that was revolutionary, yet made so much sense.
I have ridden my first pair of speedplays for 20 years, through all sorts of conditions, and weather, until a bearings finally gave up the ghost the day before a race, and that pedal would no longer rotate smoothly. I bought a brand new pair of the same pedals, and ordered a new bearing kit. After pulling the pedals apart and putting in the new bearings, the classics still spin like a dream. I no longer have to swap my pedals between my racing and winter bike I now have two awesome pairs of pedals that I imagine will have another 20+ years of riding before I have to worry about them.
