Road bike pedals
You and your bike have 3 main points of contact — the saddle, the handlebar and the pedals. Which of those does the most work?
If you said pedals, you get a gold star.
Besides just keeping your feet in place as they spin at up to 100rpm or more, the pedals also have to provide a solid, stiff surface that you can push against. Without it, you have no way to move yourself and your bike forward. Your bike pedals have to do all of that and still be comfortable.
Want to achieve the highest possible speed on your road bike? Think pedals. To bike faster, you have to transfer power from your legs to the bike through the pedals. With that in mind, it's time to upgrade to reach that top speed you and your next time trial event are after.
The best road bike pedals on the market today
There is a wide range of different pedal manufacturers on the market, but even though all manufacturers develop good, high-quality bike pedals, it doesn't mean that they make the same type,
Here are a few of the big players in the pedal- and cleat-making business.
The American company Speedplay is a pure pedal manufacturer. Speedplay has made a name for itself in the cycling world by introducing a completely new design — a very distinctive round shape, which has made them capable of producing pedals with an impressively low weight. Speedplay has continually added new models to its range and is one of the most innovative companies in the field.
Look is from France and launched the first click pedal for road cycling in 1984. The idea was duplicated from the ski binding system. Since the launch, Look has become a market leader in this type. Already in 1985, Look won the first Tour de France when Bernard Hinault used their pedals during the stage race while the rest of the field used pedals with toe clips.
In addition, Look also produces a range of other bike parts and accessories, including bike frames, seat posts, handlebars, cleats, and cycling clothing.
Cycling today is much different than when Look started its production. Then, it was primarily road cycling. Since then, they've continuously adapted their production of pedals as well as the other parts to also include equipment for Triathlon, Track, Time Trial, Urban and mountain biking.
Shimano is a Japanese company founded in 1921. This biking company sells sports equipment and bike parts. Shimano doesn't need much introduction for experienced bike enthusiasts. When it says Shimano on a product, you can be sure that it's top-quality.
SPD pedals for road bike
If you're shopping for SPD pedals, you'll find some of the best in the market in our selection above. Give Shimano SPD a look and you'll see what we mean.
SPD pedals offer characteristics and strengths. An SPD-SL pedal is very wide, which naturally provides a larger tread surface and better power transfer. The fact that the pedal is wide also means that the rider is more stabilized.
