X2 Road Pedal

The Speedplay X2 Road Pedal has all of the technical benefits 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. It also features the same user-friendly design and generous float options as the newer Ultra Light Action models, but with a bit more effort required for engagement, a few added grams, and without the benefit of Speedplay's Walkable cleats.

The pedals come standard with cleats and mounting hardware and are compatible with virtually every road shoe in the marketplace. Please note that, due to manufacturer restrictions, we are unable to ship Speedplay products outside the United States.

  • Stainless Steel spindles are durable and more affordable
  • Generous float saves your knees from undo strain
  • Low-profile design keeps the foot close to the spindle for maximum efficiency
  • Dual-sided design offers easy entrance and exit from pedals

    A good introduction to Speedplay

    I've put it through the wringer

    My first road pedal was the Shimano SPD-SL aluminum pedal, which did the job but clicking in was an exercise in probability. A lot of times the tip of the cleat would skim the pedal and I'd be trying to launch out of an intersection with my foot thrashing around trying to engage the pedal. It didn't look very Pro. These Speedplays are so much better because engagement is superior (being dual-sided) and more forgiving--you just stomp on the pedal and you're good. And if you suffer from knee problems, the free float is a godsend. The float feels weird at first, but just like learning to ride clipless you get used to it and don't notice it after a few rides. The cons to this particular pedal: 1. The cleat interface is not very durable. I went through several cleats because the metal part would have a corner that would wear or snap off. I've learned this is not a good thing and actually crashed on a couple climbs because the cleat would suddenly disengage from the pedal. This doesn't happen if the cleat is in good shape, but I had to keep an eye on it and with the mileage I did the number of failures was frustrating. 2. Dirt very easily makes cleat engagement difficult. Not to the point where I couldn't get my foot in, but I would have to work it a bit. A small price to pay for dual-sided engagement, though. 3. If you race and are trying to sprint, the free float doesn't help. So I eventually moved on to the Speedplay Zero, which kept all of the advantages and resolved the weaknesses of the X series. The X is an improvement over other pedal systems and I was not tempted to go back, but unless you need the free float for biomechanical reasons you may want to just go straight to the Zero.

    I would only add that my wife was riding the Zeros and even after a season found them very stiff and hard to clip into, vs the X2's which are much easier clip into. She's moving back from Zeros to X2s.

    the perfect pedal?

    I've put it through the wringer

    For me, yes. I'm another 20 year rider of the x2s and bought a second pair when I picked up another bike recently. They were a great idea 2 decades ago and the greatness of the design is still evident today. They require very little maintenance and , as the other reviewer indicated, you can rebuild them in 10 or 20 years when they need it. They have a lot of free-moving float which allows your knee/ankle to find it's natural position. Some may want less freedom, or to have their position perhaps more "controlled", and there are plenty of options for them including the Zeros, Looks etc. But I absolutely love the free float and feel like I "can't go back".


    Do these pedals come with cleats...or do...

    Do these pedals come with cleats...or do you have to buy them separately?

    I think so.. yes it comes with the cleats and all mounting hardwares as stated in the description.

    Correctomundo - cleats commeth with :)

    Amazing pedals

    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.

    I've put it through the wringer

    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.
