 The Specs:

  • Model:
  • Material:
  • Weight:
  • Retail Price:

The Good:

  • Strong and Durable
  • Affordable
  • Durable stainless steel body cover
  • The body cover is replaceable
  • Adjustable entry and release tension
  • Extra-wide platform for efficient power transfer
  • Low maintenance sealed cartridge axle unit

The Bad:

  • Heavier than the more expensive Ultegra & Dura Ace models
  • Entry and exit tension adjustment is still very tight even at the lowest setting

My 2¢:

After months of riding 3 to 5 times a week the pedals have finally broken in and become easier to clip in and out of. It would be nice if Shimano modified the adjustment screw to allow for a few more turns in the negative direction. For those of us that are smaller riders it would help considerably.
