Enter a world of speed.

If the Zero Chrome-Moly Pedals with Walkable Cleats can be construed as "entry-level," it's only because they inhabit the most economical tier of Speedplay's roster. The Zero Chrome-Moly Pedals still have the more expensive models' zero to 15 degrees of micro-adjustable float, spring-free engagement mechanism, stack height as low as 8.5mm, and virtually unlimited customizability of three independent axes of adjustment. Their incorporation of a chrome-moly spindle means they do suffer a nominal weight penalty, weighing 108 claimed grams per pedal compared to 103g for the next pedal in the lineup, the Stainless model.

The pedals ship with one of Speedplay's latest innovations: walkable cleats. Anyone who's taken a garage-floor spill or done the slip-and-slide conga to the coffee shop counter knows the dangers inherent in spending time out of the saddle in cycling shoes. Speedplay eliminates this threat by replacing the hard plastic of standard road cleats and hardwood-destroying metal of two-bolt mountain cleats with the reliable grip of its rubberized Walkable Cleats. The high-grip housing doesn't interfere with clipping in and out, and it has the added benefit of protecting the cleats themselves during those inevitable times when you've forgotten to replenish your saddle bag supplies and a flat forces a hike on tarmac to the nearest LBS for tubes or CO2.

  • Pedals with effortless engagement for taking to the tarmac
  • Virtually unlimited float, fore/aft, rotational adjustments
  • Reliable steel construction is durable for long miles
  • Low-profile construction keeps you clear on tight corners
  • Walkable cleats make coffee shop stops a breeze

Adequate for the job

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally retired my Speedplay pedals in 2019. This is a very distinctive pedal system. I liked the infinite float - it feels very liberating not to have your ankle locked into a very narrow angular range of position. The weight-weenie in me liked that I could get the *bike* weight down using affordable aftermarket Ti spindles. I grew to appreciate the relative walkability of the new design, but equally grew tired of the need for two separate plates and a total of 7 screws to secure the cleat to shoe, and how the design trapped moisture and accelerated corrosion of ferrous cleat parts. The need to lube the cleats and frequently inject grease into the pedal bodies with a very imperfect grease port just grew tiresome over the years. So did the excessive price of the cleats as compared with other major brands. There are folks who passionately love Speedplay pedals to the extent that pointing out the above flaws is like heresy. Try them yourself and make up your own mind.

Sloppy and complicated

    15 years ago I was a Speedplay fan. Long distance racing and touring. Now I race Ironman Triathlons with Look Keo pedals. I was interested in trying Zeros with the walking cleat because my bare feet don't do well running through asphalt transition zones. The cleats work great for running, but the complication of the installation and adjustment of the Zeros is just too much. In addition, they are very hard to step into (yes I made sure they screws weren't too tight, the platform was flat, and they were lubed). When you get into them you feel like your foot just "rattles" around on the pedal even when the cleat is adjusted to zero float. Anyone used to using a Look Keo, which firmly locks you in to where you feel "one with the pedal" isn't going to like these. If you're switching from mountain bike shoes ... then maybe.

    Totally agree with your comment. They are unnecessarily complicated and very expensive. I am having a lot of trouble installing the cleats. For God sake!!!! I never thought installing cleats could be complicated!!!! But I was wrong Speedplay made it. Looking forward to go back to Shimano

    Gets better with age

    Finally made the switch to speed-play and my knees have thanked me. I've been really happy with the Zeros, which allow you to dial in the amount of float on the cleat. The only con is that there is a 10 ride "break in" period until the cleats and pedals soften up for an easy clip in and out action.

    Does what it's supposed to

    A few years back my friend noticed I was struggling with my pedals.

    If it's good enough for Cancellara...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used only Speedplay for almost as long as Scott (see below). Before that, Look (hated the looseness with cleat wear; even broke a couple mid-sprint!) and Time (their cleats were literally chunks of metal). I'll admit that I was initially drawn to Speedplay primarily because of their aesthetics; back in the day they looked pretty 'out there'. I loved the simple elegance of their design. Still do. And the weight, esp. back then, was way low. After my first ride, I knew I'd never use any other pedal. The float is indispensable, as is ease of entry/exit; no cleat wear when walking (at least on the part that matters. I still have the same cleats that came with my first pair, at least 10,000 K later!); they're light but also bomb-proof; set-up may seem complicated, but it's actually a snap--'set it and forget it'. Now Speedplay Zeroes are on all of my bikes. Like anything, they have their downsides: 1. Speedplay-specific shoes are preferable (but by no means required; it just lessens stack height and therefore efficiency) but they're few and far between, unfortunately. I've never had any issues with using Speedplay's included adapters, when needed; 2. cleat/pedal interface will squeak a bit after a while (maybe 700-800 K, depending on use). Easily solved by a light spritz of dry lube, with excess wiped off right away; 3. spindles of Cro-Moly versions may develop surface corrosion, but I tend to ride through rain and snow, and over salted roads in the wintertime, from time to time. Half of my Speedplays are stainless, which I would recommend. Nothing I could do to these pedals even comes close to the abuse they got from Fabian Cancellara. They were his pedal of choice--not an insignificant testament to their quality!

    Speedplay The Only Way

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using Speedplay pedals for the better part of 15 years and have nothing but praise to say about them. My youngest son has really taken to the sport and thought it was time to get him into some "real" road pedals, and turned to the Speedplay Zero family. While they are initially tough to get into as the spring in the cleat takes time to break-in, once you're past it, there is nothing better in my opinion. I have found that it takes at lest 10-14 rides to really get them to loosen up, and always use the Speedplay Dry Lube on the cleats every few rides.
    If you have questions about Speedplay pedals or other, please reach out to me.

    Tough to get into at first.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Let me start by saying I love these now that I've gotten used to them. They were my first pair of road pedals, and I had a really, really tough time breaking them in and getting clipped in! I'm confident that a more seasoned rider would have fewer issues. :)

    I have a Bont Vaypor shoe, with 3 holes in the sole. Does this come with the base plate and any kind of adapter I may need to install the cleats on my shoe?

    It will work with both 3 and 2 screw setups. I use them with a pair of Lakes that habe a 3 screw setup.

    Sorry, I didn't double check what I wrote before. It works with 3 screw and 4 screw setups. I use them with a pair of Lakes that have a 3 screw setup with no problems. They're a great pedal/cleat system. I've put almost 6,000 miles on them since I bought them a year ago. They've performed awesome.

    Is it possible to transfer the body and bearins from a chrome moly pedal to my existing stainless spindles? My zero stainless pedals are 4-5 yrs. old.

    Hey Dustin! Yes, it looks like they should interchange. I sent you an email as well.



    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been riding Look, Shimano, and Time pedals for the last 6ish years and had been entirely happy with what I had, forgetting the experience of riding with Speedplay.

    Inevitably all of the other pedal systems have some caveat that convinced me to turn to another product; with Speedplay, I have never come across any issues, other than being paid to ride something else!

    My favorite aspect of Speedplay Zero's is the incredible amount of adjust-ability they offer, which helps to dial in the fit of even the most cantankerous lower extremities.

    They also provide an extremely secure and reliable engagement; which is very easy to notice under high load as the cleat and pedal system do not move at all against each other (at least not in a direction they are not supposed to!).

    Other manufacturers are coming up with pedal systems of similar weight, but when it comes down to it, Speedplay is still the only one that has done so while maintaining a nearly perfect pedal system, that leaves this rider with zero complaints.
