Like with the Aero Track Sprint model, the Zero Track Sprint Special Pedal with Walkable Cleat features one key difference compared to the Speedplay's standard Zero road model. The release tension is increased, so it's better suited to handling the kind of big-torque efforts of track cycling with less risk of accidental disengagement.
The addition of Speedplay's aerodynamic cleat profile is another benefit for track cycling. Since left-hand turns and fellow competitors are the only deterrents to obstacle-free cycling in the velodrome, aerodynamics play an arguably larger role than they would on the road. Given this importance, it's only fitting that Speedplay applies its aerodynamic acumen to the pedal system's largest surface area: the cleat. These changes include a reduced frontal area, a streamlined profile, and the kind of dimpling that we've already seen employed to revolutionize the wheelset industry. The cleat is also housed in a walkable, rubberized shell that's contoured to create a smoother transition from pedal to cleat, denying the wind a foothold on any pronounced transitional ridges.
The Track Sprint Special's low stack height has a cornering clearance of 37 degrees, which helps with pedaling through banked corners, and Speedplay's standard 15-degree range of adjustable float and independently adjustable fore/aft, side-to-side, and rotational positions carry over from the road-specific model. The pedals ship with cleats and mounting hardware.
