Speedplay X5 Chromoly Pedals The Speedplay X Series' innovative design and unrestricted float changed the shape of clipless pedals and continues to prove that user-friendliness, comfort, and improved performance are all attainable in a simple, lightweight package. The unique shape of X pedals provides knee-saving lateral rotation, without the self-centering action inherent in most pedals - your knees don't have to work against spring tension. The compact, low-profile shape of X pedals positions your foot closer to the spindle for optimal power transmission and unmatched cornering clearance. And their dual-sided design ensures easy entry and exit. X Series Pedals were Speedplay's first double-sided design and earned a prestigious Designers Choice Award from ID Magazine, the premier publication in the field of industrial design. - Easy dual-sided entry: no kicking it over, no looking down, no fumbling. - Half the weight of most other clipless systems: - X/5 Chrome-Moly pedals per pair - 220g - X cleats per pair - 62g/110g* - Non-centering free float minimizes the potential for knee strain. - Unbeatable cornering clearance: X/5 - 35 degrees. - Large contact area, extremely stable cleat-to-shoe connection. - Compatible with virtually all 3-hole and 4-hole shoe mountings. - Standard step-in, turn-out entry and release. - Built-in grease port for easy bearing lubrication. - True locking mechanism - engagement security is independent of spring tension. - X/5 features needle and cartridge bearings for improved durability and easier servicing. - X/5 incorporates an earlier release angle than the race-oriented X/1 and X/2. The X/5 needs only a slight heel twist to exit, so you'll have no worries about getting out when you need to.
