Item # SPP0007


Identical in design to the Zero Ti, except for the fact that the spindle is made from Stainless Steel instead of Titanium. This adds a total 42g to a pair of Zero Stainless -- meaning it weighs in at 206g/pr. Like the Ti, the Zero Stainless allows you to choose either a fixed position or up to 15 degrees of float. Zero pedals maintain the traditional feel of a fixed system while incorporating all the well-known advantages of Speedplay X Pedal Systems. Dual-sided Zero pedals offer light weight, easy engagement and disengagement, a low 11.5mm stack height and superior cornering clearance. The engagement mechanism does not rely on spring tension for retention, so you don't have to crank down a tension adjuster just to prevent inadvertent release. Best of all, you can choose either a fixed position or a microadjustable 15 degrees of float.

The Zero Stainless has an amazing cornering clearance of 37 degrees. Available in numerous colors and they come with cleats (and mounting hardware) compatible with virtually every road shoe in the marketplace.

Please Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, we are unable to ship Speedplay products outside the United States.

Great Pedals!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I first started riding Speedplay pedals back in 93 in an effort to address some knee pain I was having. (Had been riding Shimano Ultegra, look style pedals) Initially had a pair of X's that I couldn't kill and ended up giving away to a friend. The zero's are a definite step up with their easily adjustable float. Engagement and exiting the pedals is always smooth, quick and nearly effortless. I ride with a lot of guys that use Look style pedals, and at red lights, I am ALWAYS in my pedals before them. In addition, you will never pull out of these pedals under hard efforts. Also, the cleats last a long time, however you do need to replace the cleats as directed as the cleat retention springs will break when too old (learned that the hard way). I also recommend having them shot up with new grease from time to time to keep them spinning well. I have 18,000 miles on my current pair, and while they're showing some wear, they have more miles in them. Bottom line, great pedals, durable, great bio-mechanics, light, won't pull them out while sprinting, badass.

Great Pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This my second pair of Speedplay pedals and I couldn't be more pleased with them. After a bit of trial and error I have found them easy to clip in and out of and they are are excellent for power transfer.


  • 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.

Best Pedal Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have three bikes, and after trying a few different pedals over the years, my primary two have a set of these on them. When coupled with a well fitting, stiff shoe, these pedals will make you feel like your crank is directly hooked to your ankle. Dialing in float takes a bit of trial and error, so ride with a mini screwdriver for the first couple rides on them. Invest in a set of cleat covers! They will last longer and you'll be less likely to slip and fall if you're not on your bike. Lube the bearings and the cleats and they will last a long, long time. Enjoy!

Not perfect but love them still

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not perfect because yes the cleats are pricey, yes the cleats are finicky to install and maintain, and yes the cleats wear out just as quickly as other brands. Main benefit is frictionless float and easier entry/exit once familiar. Just want to add my personal tip for maintaining/lubing: the branded Speedplay dry lube is very thin and lasts only a short while with each application. I noticed the cleats come from the factory, ironically, with a thicker grease, and if you take a little extra time to remove them and clean/lube the metal plate with a grease (like Phil Wood, etc.) you will go much longer between lubes, and with better performance.

Great pedals. A little expensive

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been using them for 2000 km and the cleats still OK. There was too hard for engaging the first two or three rides , but after this they became easy to clip-in. I recommend putting them in a indoor cycle or a hometrainer before going out. Now I'm back to look because I use to ride with them in my second bike and spinning bike, and for me it's easy change shoes and cleats. Also I noticed that Look's have more power transfering.


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

I returned the first set of Speedplay Zero Stainless road pedals as they were virtually impossible to engage. I called Competitive Cyclist who referred me to Speedplay tech support and they helped me engage them (although not on the bike). Once engaged, they were EXTREMELY difficult to disengage (and it would have been impossible if I had been riding a bike!). The replacement set from CC, while still somewhat difficult to engage, does disengage quite easily so it may just be that there is a "breaking in" period. I'm currently using them on a trainer until I feel confident in putting them on my road bike. Thanks to CC for their generous return policy which enabled me to return that nonfunctional first set.

You may have tightened the cleats too tightly. Installation can be a little finicky because you have to resist the natural urge to really fasten them down tightly, but with some experimentation and attention to Speedplay instructions you should be able to find the right amount of bolt torque to keep them secure but easy to enter. And you can use threadlock compound to resist loosening.

Great with limitations

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

-very fast clip in, great for racing
-float is easy to set up and tune for each foot
-easier in my opinion to replicate cleat position from shoe to shoe
-great locked in feel, no slop.

-must lube these every month of they will die around 15-20k miles
-cleat will wear down quickly and at 40 bucks a piece i spend 80 bucks a year on cleats.
-new cleats will be very tight, with float feeling very unnatural and the clip in very tight, it will take 500 miles to break in at least.
-the least bit of dirt on the cleat can cause significant issues, i had a TT where i unclipped for 1 minute and could not clip in at the start because a bit of mid got on the cleat.
-most shoes are not speedplay specific

Overall i have mixed opinions, for one the easy to clip in is so nice it is hard to leave that behind. But the constant need for new cleats every year can get expensive if you ride a lot and you have to be careful if it is muddy or dirty. Right now i am trying to decide if i want to continue with speedplay long term or switch back to dura ace.

Great pedals!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding Speedplay Zeros now for over a year (indoors, outdoors, rain, shine, & snow), and I've racked up close to 10K miles on them. They are as smooth and quiet as the day I first installed them! The zero cleats have a great positive "click" engagement, and the smooth, friction-less, and adjustable float is the most natural pedal feel I've ever ridden. Snapping out is just as easy as getting in, and I never need to worry when remounting at a stoplight with the dual-sided nature of these pedals. I do recommend cleat covers to protect the cleat when walking, but I'm still riding the original cleats and they seem to keep working just fine. Finally, maintenance is easy too. I purchased a fairly cheap grease gun at my local hardware store & when you push new grease into the pedal, out comes the old stuff on the other side. I've only needed to do this once, so they are pretty low maintenance!

The best as best can be

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am a long time Speedplay user and owner. This would be my 5th pair of Speedplays. I use them until I kill them. I love the wide float that I get, I love how light they are, I love the freedom of motion I get and their reliability. I love the option to clip in either side and the sturdy quality of them. I will never use another pedal on my road bike.

Unanswered Question

Do these come with Version 2 Cleats?

Great Pedal, Be ready to replace cleats

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So Zeros are a great pedal. We know many pros use the Ti versions, but stainless is still great. The one downside for riders who are used to having the spring mech on the pedal and not the shoe is that the cleats on the shoes are thicker and they're susceptible to damage. I definitely recommend getting Kool Kovers or Coffee Shop Covers for walking around in. If you put one foot down more than the other at stops you'll notice a pretty huge difference in wear. Sometimes the screws get loose and fall out too.

I haven't had any problems with clipping in or out of these pedals, nor have I ever slipped out of lock once being clipped in.

You need to buy Speedplay dry lube for the cleats as well as the a grease gun to replace the dirty grease in the pedal body. I've ridden 1000km with these so far and I have regreased them once, I dry lube the cleats every couple of times, and I wear Kool Kovers the moment I get back from my ride (sometimes I even bring the Kool Kovers in my jersey if I know I'm going to stop somewhere).

I plan on getting some Cromoly Zeros to put on a fixed gear project bike, that way I'll get a second set of cleats and just keep using my same pair of shoes.

Very Impressed

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used look for several years but i wanted more float and decided to give speedplay a try. They are great; for road racing they have been helpful for clearance in tight corners, easy entry/exit, and lots of different float options. For my TT bike they are light, little upkeep, and easy to install on different shoes as well. Only complaint is with the cleats...they will wear out pretty fast if you walk around on them a lot.

These include the cleat I presume...

Love those pedals

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One tip: the cleats can wear out rapidly from simply unclipping and resting a foot down at red lights. Get the Keep-On-Kovers Z: adds a few grams per cleats and extend the lifetime of the cleats 2-5x.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Legit pedal system. A professional piece of bicycle equipment that is worth the attention required for proper upkeep and maintenance. And Cancellara rides them. Which at least makes me feel fast, haha.

Bad knees

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These have saved my knees. Super light and loads of adjustment


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ok I was really excited to upgrade to Speedplay Road Pedals due to their light weight and the ability to adjust up to 15 degrees of float. So I called and ordered them directly from the customer service rep. Well she didn't tell me all the other things I would need to get to go along with these pedals.

Go to the Speedplay website and watch the installation and maintenance videos to learn what this all entails.

Here is the list of things you will want to purchase along with your new pedals:

- SP Lubricant

- Speedplay Grease Gun and Grease:

- Speedplay Coffee Shop Covers: You should get these shoe covers in order to protect the speedplay plate mechanism from dirt and grime.

** Lastly you will need a torgue screw driver when installing the speedplay plates to your shoes. The torque pressure for applying the plate is 35 inch pounds. Over tightening the screws can damage the plates. Attaching the assembly to the base plate also requires the screws be tightened to no more than 20 inch pounds. If you over tighten these screws it can bind the cleat springs and prevent them from properly working. So I did a little homework for you and for $104 you can get a torque screw driver from Pro Torque Tools with TORQUE RANGE from: 0-50 in. lbs.:

You can also find various torque wrenches for around $35 at

One Last Note: Make sure that the road shoe you are using or planning to purchase offers a speedplay plate or comes with your speed play pedals. The last thing you want to do is to find out that the plates that come in the speedplay package are not compatible with your shoe brand.

Great pedals!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a first year road biker the Speedplay Zero pedals are my second set of pedals. The first set was the Time I-Clic2's. The Speedplays offer better disengagement as well as a more reliable engagement compared to the Time pedals. I would definitely recommend these pedals!!
