Speedplay's X/5 pedals are lightweight and feature-packed at a great price. They 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 needle and dual cartridge bearings for smooth spinning and a compact, low profile positions your feet closer to the axles for maximum power transmission and unmatched cornering clearance. The dual-sided design of the X/5 pedals offers extremely easy entry, and an early release angle makes exiting effortless.
I saw many reviews noting how awesome these pedals were for those with knee problems. After doing all the things (bike fit, physical therapy, cortisone shot, etc) I was still having pain. I bought these pedals on Friday night and went out Sat on a 55 mile ride with 3700+ elevation gain and NO pain. The 25º of float in these pedals was a lifesaver for me. Not to mention dual sided entry, lightweight, etc. Love these pedals!!!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
