Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличные педали Отличные легкие удобные педали. Всем рекомендую. Я брал черные. Смотрятся классно. 17 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light action is great These pedals are just as good as the standard but have a much better release action. I found the standard R540s quite awkward to release from at times, but these are much easier and gives more confidence. Bargain price with cleats included. 10 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Still trying but feels good still trying my pedals but its good and u guys should buy 06 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Very good quality product. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for low budget clip pedal 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pedal for beginners Bought these as my first clipless pedals, attracted by the "light action". Couldn't find them cheaper than this anywhere. They took a little while to dispatch but then shipped very quickly. Very happy with the quality, and they look great 23 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Value for money First set of clipless pedals, found them easy to get used to. Great vale as the cleats are included 13 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent pedals at a bargain price Bought these to resolve a problem I have with a pair of Shimano SPDL pedals I bought 4 years ago. I always found them difficult to clip in, particularly if there was any dirt on the cleats. I had them on the minimum setting and was afraid to slacken further because of warnings about going beyond the limit. these pedals are a total contrast, easy to clip in or out and that is straight from the box. Adjustment is there if required, I haven't bothered yet and am very satisfied after 200 miles. Previous comment on the durability of the finish seem to be true, I have managed to mark the coating, mine are in white but it doesn't affect function and at under £23 they are a steal. In truth there is no difference between these and my more expensive Shimano pedal; it rather makes the point that you don't always get what you pay for. I was thinking of changing to a different shoe and cleat system as the old pedals were so stiff and fussy about dirt. Problem solved and at the price it was easy to take a punt and find out, shan't buy expensive pedals again. 11 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by look good feel good clippin in and out very easy as light action suggest well worth the money 04 February 2014
