Zero Stainless Pedals with Walkable Cleats

Speedplay's formula is pretty standard across the Zero pedal range, with the key difference being variable spindle materials. The recreational cyclist may prefer the economy of the Chrome-Moly model while the hammer-fest racer will demand titanium, but those of us who wear many caps on the bike — racing, training, commuting, sportives, weekend noodling — recognize the neutral sweetness of Speedplay's Zero Stainless Pedals with Walkable Cleats. They're the right blend of stiff reliability, low weight, and price, recommending them for cyclists who, like us, enjoy a protean life in the saddle.

While the Zero Pedals' virtually unlimited options of float, fore/aft, lateral, and rotational customization often steal the limelight, anyone who's ever clipped a pedal on 90-degree corner in a crit will also appreciate the Zero's low profile and generous clearance. The included Walkable Cleats also deserve some credit because their rubberized housing addresses the common issue of sliding all over the damn place on the kinds of slippery, stained concrete floors favored by coffee shops. The housing doesn't impede the cleat/pedal interface, and they also protect the cleats in the event that a flat forces a mid-ride walk to the bike shop for a tube or more CO2.

  • Pedals that blend stiffness, reliability, and walkability
  • Near endless float options stay comfortable when you pedal
  • Huge clearance helps prevent clipped pedals on corners
  • Walkable cleats with rubberized housing offer off-bike grip
  • Housing keeps clear of cleat/pedal interference
  • Chrome-Moly steel is more economical, while staying durable

    Giving Speedplay one more chance

    I've depended on Speedplay for 8 years. They literally allowed me to continue riding after I thought I'd have to give up the sport due to knee pain. But, for the last couple years, every cleat I've purchased has not worked properly. All 4 screws don't align at installation (and I've ridden at times with just 3 screws as a result), the metal bracket in the cleat breaks, and/or my foot slips off the cleat - nearly causing me to crash. I sent messages thru Speedplay's website twice and never received a response. From my perspective, they have a problem with quality assurance - has their been a change in management? Quality management? The product doesn't seem the same. So, I'm giving it one more try and am buying new pedals and cleats to make sure the problems I've experienced are not due to worn pedals or a mismatch between cleat and pedal. And I'm going to be extremely careful to not over tighten, though I've tried to get that right in the past. I'll come back and either move my review stars up or down.

    Will never go back to Look style pedals

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I started riding Speedplay pedals back in 1993 shortly after completing a cross-country ride. I was having issues with my knees and those original Speedplay X pedals really helped my knee recover as they offered more float with less float resistance than the “float cleats” offered by Look and Shimano. I never looked back. I've ridden the same pair Speedplay Zero (SS) pedals since 2010. I don't really track my annual mileage, but I'd bet they have a minimum of 20,000 miles on them. I change their grease about twice per year, which may not be considered perfect maintenance and they're probably approaching the end of their lifespan, but I believe that's good durability from a pedal. I’ll be buying a new pair soon. I suspect if you change the grease more often, you’ll get even better durability. Also, if you live in an area where you're in an out of your pedals frequently, waiting for traffic lights, the double-sided entry is an enormous advantage over Look-style road pedals. I'm usually one of first guys back in my pedals at every light. I do recommend changing the cleats from time to time as the cleat retention spring can corrode and fail, I had this happen once. Like other pedal/cleat systems, Speedplay cleats can be shimmed for improved biomechanics. I dialed in the float on my Zero's by trial and error, but a shop can do this as part of their bike fit. Speedplay also offers various axel lengths to dial in your Q-factor (stance width) if needed. In Summary, easy entry/exit, good adjustability/biomechanics=happy knee's, durable, good value.

    Waste of money

    I purchased these to replace my titanium Speedplay X's. I have used those for 15- 20 years but could no longer find cleats for them. I am female and 105#. I could not clip into these pedals. Very disappointed with this product.

    Simply brilliant. I’d happily ignore anyone on here who has had issues - if you over tighten the cleat screws, yes, you will have issues. So don’t do that. The float is wonderful and compensates for any leg alignment issues, letting the foot find its own natural angle without being forced straight, as other pedals tend to do.

    Cons outweigh the Pro

    The shop installed them on my new Tarmac 4 years ago. On the first ride I fell twice, unable to unclip. On the second ride, twice again. I learned to lubricate them, which helped, but I have always fought them, even with shop re-adjustments. Twice I fell into traffic, on the traffic lane with cars right behind me and that was the last straw. They have a design flaw. To get the cleat tight enough not to slide sideways on the shoe, you are working against the ease of clipping in and out. I spent a couple of hours last weekend adjusting and testing mine but at an event the right side shoe still slid out away from the crank arm about 1/4 of an inch putting more stress on my foot and knee. If neither I nor the best mechanics in the area can't make them work safely then they need to be re-designed. I would recommend them to my worst enemy.

    Used to be a Favorite

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I have ridden on Seedplay zeros for probably 20 years and absolutely love them...or I did. I also am continuing to have problems stepping in to them. IT takes quite a bit of time and effort to get one of them to clip in to the pedal. I specifically bought both pedals and cleats so that they would hopefully work together well but unfortunately they do not. I also think that worrying about walking in them is kind of ridiculous. If you are riding a road bike on zeros, how much time do you spend walking any way? I think speedplay solved a problem that doesn't exist. The cleats engage a bit easier if you remove the plastic walking garbage. I am disappointed but hoping that as the parts wear a bit, they will integrate more easily.

    One of my favorites

    I've used Look and Speedplay over the years. Whenever, I go back to Speedplay I choose the Zeros. The float adjustment is super nice and I always feel secure when I'm clipped in. These are a great racing pedal but also nice to have the walkable cleats so your cleats don't get destroyed when you're not clipped in.

    Don't buy these!!!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    As a 20+ year bike shop mechanic I have installed many many pedal/cleat systems plus have been a long time user of Speedplay X2 series pedal/cleats. Got the Zeros thinking better walking and cleat engagement - but no no no! Can't believe Speedplay is selling these...after fully lubing cleat and pedal and following all instructions could not even begin to clip in either foot standing inside with full body weight jumping on either pedal. If you want to NEVER clip easily these are for you....buyer beware!!!

    I’ve been wrenching and riding for thirty years. And have been using nothing but Zeroes for thirteen. I’ve never had this problem. The only problem I’ve ever had was a little squeak after around 600-700k, solved promptly by a drop or two of dry lube. Sounds like it may be a cleat adjustment issue.

    I wonder if you don't have your cleats backwards, meaning the left cleat on the right shoe. I replaced my cleats this year and made that mistake, and yes you can't force it on there despite the force used.

    I’ve used Speedplay for at least 10 years, probably much longer. I’ve used the zeros since they were first released. I won’t ride anything else. They’re easy to get in and out and yet never prerelease even when racing. The float adjustment prevents my heels from striking the chain stays while still allowing the float I need. My only complaint is the longevity of the cleat’s base plate. It gets scored over time from the pedal’s float rotation and eventually my shoe cleat can rock in the pedal. The protector shim seems to take care of much of that. I love to take sharp corners and on the rare occasion when I have had contact with the pavement it is my shoe and not the pedal that hits. It takes time to learn how to click in but once you get it it’s a breeze. I’m usually first to click in from a stop on group rides.

    Absolute nonsense. I have used zeros for 10 plus years and 10s of thousands of miles with zero of the issuse these imbeciles here are describing. If you are too weak to clip in or out of these pedals perhaps riding a bike with clippless pedals is to strenuous an activity for you...

    you have no idea what your doing, i have no issues at all been racing them for years. Five Stars!

    These pedals have some of the smoothest, most friction free, ball bearing like float you can ever experience, second only to Speedplay's own X pedal which is slightly smoother but does not have the float adjustment that I have come to love. Thes pedals last a very long time, are easily serviced and are great if you have any joint issues or if you are looking for a pedal that will allow the most natural movement through your pedal stroke. I highly recommend them.

    Favorite road pedals

    I really like this pedal system. I have tried the Look Keo and Time ATAC i believe they were. These things are solid and you know when you are clipped in. The double entry is also a bonus as I slipped a couple times on the single entry pedals and racked myself on the front of the seat. UGH!

    The Best Pedal System

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I've used Speedplay X/2's for over 10 years, and switched to Zero's for my new road bike. I've always loved the float, so easy on the knees. But I've felt it was a little too much float. The adjustability of the Zero's perfect - you get exactly what you need. Also the walkable cleats are a big upgrade. Only downside is they seem to require a little more force to clip in, but that seems to be getting easier the more I ride.

    I won't use anything else!

    Previous experience with Speedplay Frogs brought me to these for my road bike. Wonderful pedals! Still breaking in, but already they are getting easier to engage/disengage. Very solid feel when driving the pedals hard on climbs, and I really like that the float can be adjusted.

    I like the double entry and float option

    I love the double sided entry coming from MTB. The adjustable float and heel angle is also really nice. The cleats are durable enough as I have never had a failure after thousands of miles with two alternating sets. I keep them clean and lube them periodically. Just take your time with the set up and after break in you will not regret this purchase.

    Due to knee issues I decided to try out the Zero for the added adjust ability (fit and float). Need a bit more practice for the clip in motion to feel natural but they feel great once I am in.

    Impeccable

    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.

    Exactly. I couldn't have said it better myself. The most secure clippless pedals on the market.

    Speedplay still my favorite.

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    After over 30,000 miles of using Speedplay X1 pedals, and building a new bike. I decided to try the Zero model with walkable cleats. Like the X1's, they offer lots of free rotation but are now adjustable on release. They also help keep me from rubbing my shoes against the crank arms. which is a nice feature. My only complaint so far, is that they are difficult to engage. Polishing the edges of the pedals to remove the sharp corner on the bevel has helped though they still require a very firm push. No problem in the 'off' direction, thankfully. Overall, I still think Speedplay is the best.
