Great Pedals for gravel!

As long as one is not pushing the limits of technical riding, these are fantastic pedals for gravel. The only drawback could be if one is riding terrain which requires lots of unclipping and putting the foot down, as being one sided, clipping back in is not always as fast as it would be with a two sided MTB pedal. Pluses: SPD clip in and release action is the gold standard, and easily adjustable for desired retention. One gets to use a recessed cleat shoe if the need to walk a section comes along. Mud performance much better than road pedals. The platform on these is large, and one can feel the additional support and power transfer (vs MTB XC pedals). Very low stack height, and higher ground clearance than double sided MTB pedals-great for modern low BB gravel bikes. Lightweight vs any MTB pedals. And, very affordable. Super smooth bearings, as is normally the case with all Shimano pedals. BTW, for those marginal gains types, Boca Bearings makes a relatively affordable ceramic ball upgrade which will work with these pedals. I actually use road shoes, with an adapter for SPD cleats with these, for a really lightweight and stiff setup (Giro Empire SLX)-with the adapter the road shoes walk well enough to get through the occasional unrideable section. Only a complete road pedal set up would be more efficient and lighter, for gravel rides which are known to be dry, and completely non-technical (no walking), a Dura Ace pedal and road shoe would be my choice-but for most gravel rides, these are perfect.

Why is the claimed weight so much lower than the actual weight? Is this correct?
