Pedal industry underdog iSSi has been attracting far more attention for its designs off the trails, but here at Competitive, we're equally excited about road options like the Carbon Road Pedal. While the ability to match the color with our frame is awfully enticing, iSSi's fresh approach and solid designs are what's truly responsible for winning us over.
Minnesota-based iSSi crafts the entire body of the pedal out of carbon fiber, giving it lightness and rigidity befitting a pedal that will grace its fair share of weight-conscious frames. Anticipating the wear that pedals see through varied road conditions, iSSi coated the chromoly spindle with an ED treatment to boost its longevity and keep corrosion at bay, and it reinforced the cleat-pedal interface with a stainless steel plate.
iSSi's innovative split-cleat design gives you the ability to choose between three different float options: 0, 4.5, and 7 degrees. Since the pedals are easy to remove, this design allows you to swap them between bikes then adjust float based on your preference for a given discipline. As with its mountain pedals, the cartridge bearings are all brushed and completely sealed on the Carbon Road, and the pedal accommodates for spring tension adjustability to make sure standing out of the saddle to attack doesn't result in an accidental ejection.

Happy so far!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been using these for about 2 weeks now and I'm pretty pleased. It's my first time using Look-style cleats, so there's a bit of adjustment to clip in. I do wish they made some sort of audible sound when you did clip in so you knew right away, so I'm deducting a star. I've only done short rides so far, but they are comfortable, seem to transfer power well, and are relatively easy to clip out of. Plus they look great!
Everything I'd hoped for!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Everything I'd hoped for; completely satisfied with these!
