The Speedplay Zero Track Special is identical in every way to the standard Zero Stainless road pedal, but has an extra-stiff release tension for maximum security under massive torque. It was designed with beasts like Marty Nothstein in mind, and he used these pedals to earn US National Championship titles in the Match Sprint, Kilo, Olympic Sprint, and Keirin.
The Track Special has cornering clearance of 37 degrees. Available in Black with Gold end caps. They come with cleats (and mounting hardware) compatible with virtually every road shoe in the marketplace. Please note that the Track Special uses standard Zero cleats. The release force difference is a design feature of the pedal body itself. So you get the same adjustable float between 0-15 degrees.
Please Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, we are unable to ship Speedplay products outside the United States.

SPEEDPLAY TRACK PEDALS
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used Speedplay Pedals since 1996. Recently I went to Track Specials to obtain more release security using a fixed-gear on the road. To this point I have been extremely happy. Trying to slow/stop my fixie using only my legs I have never experienced an accidental release.
My major concern is pedal entry. Even with clean pedals and generous dry lubrication of cleats it sometime take a tremendous downward force to enter the pedals. Once entered, pedaling is secure and extra force to release is appreciated.
I would give these Track Pedals a "5" except for difficult entry.
It feels like the release point for the special pedal and cleat is more abrupt once you twist your foot that far; whereas the zero feels somewhat more forgiving when releasing the cleat. Nothing can replace the security of a strap around the shoe, but this pedal comes close. No inadvertent releases yet.
