Speedplay's X/2 pedals provide knee-saving unlimited float without the self-centering action inherent in most pedals, so your knees don't have to work against spring tension. They also boast a stainless steel spindle, needle and dual cartridge bearings for smooth spinning, and a dual-sided design for extremely easy entry and exit. A compact, low profile positions your feet closer to the axles for maximum power transmission and unmatched cornering clearance.
I have used these cleat for 9 years and I have used other one's to on some of my other bikes you can not beat these they are my favorites the the full float save your knees, entry/exit work flawlessly,they are very light,feels like you got a great platform under you.I ride with these 5 to 6 days a week I put 5000 miles a year on these and they perform great I have not had one bit of problems with these.I weigh 175 pounds .I would highly recommend these to anyone.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
I was looking for an easier dual sided entry pedal and this does find the cleat quickly. However entry and exit are not adjustable and needs to be broken in. Why? No front to back adjustment on the shoe cleat, only side to side. Do not step on grass as it will get stuck in the cleat. I could feel the narrow platform through the shoe when pushing hard or standing.
I read many pros have been using these pedals. I am not a pro.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
