Not just a great off-road pedal system, Speedplay Frog pedals are ideal for road riders who prefer a recessed, walkable cleat. Like their amphibious namesake, Frog pedals are equally at home in dry or muddy terrain. Their unique cleats are virtually immune to clogging with mud or dirt, because debris is pushed out whenever you engage the pedal. This simple mechanism also puts an end to those infuriating falls caused by gunked-up pedals that won't release. You get out when you want to, and never when you don't. Of course, you also get all the advantages of Speedplay's other innovative designs: knee-friendly, non-centering free float; lightning-fast entry and exit; and phenomenal light weight. Whether you ride a mountain bike, road bike, tandem or 'cross bike, the Speedplay Frog can do it all.
Features: • Conceived with the goal of bringing mountain bike pedal performance on par with that of road pedals, the Frog is the most versatile pedal you can buy. • Saves weight because the Frog has a single retention mechanism in the cleat instead of two redundant mechanisms located in the pedal like most off-road systems. • Minimalist design does away with confusing adjustments, because engagement security doesn't depend on spring tension. • G3 Frog cleat is stronger, more durable, easier to mount and compatible with two-hole SPD®-style road shoes. • Quickly and easily sheds mud, because debris is pushed out when the cleat engages with the pedal. • Tough resin composite body is highly resistant to impact damage. • Lightning-fast release puts an end to falls caused by pedals that won't disengage. • Phenomenal light weight: Stainless pedals per pair - 250g • G3 Frog cleats per pair - 50g • Knee-friendly, non-centering free float. • Stainless and titanium spindles won't rust. • Precision needle and cartridge bearings. • Built-in grease port for easy bearing lubrication.

I bought these pedals because I was sick of having to put coffee shop covers on my Speedplay Zero's every time I stopped and had to walk. I switched to Speedplay last year after years of knee pain from Shimano SPD and SPD SL. Fitting the cleats to my Shimano RT82 touring shoes was really easy (as long as you read the instructions). I had my bike on the turbo trainer so it was steady and after fitting the cleat, clicked it into place by hand. Yes,it's so easy to engage you can do it by hand with no effort. I had the fit the shim supplied to lift the floating plate up through the cleat. (It's the curved piece of the plate that stops the cleat coming off the pedal). Engaging and disengaging is strange because there's no spring like other pedals, but if you've set the cleat up right there is a "click". I did a 36 mile ride this morning and they were excellant. If you've never ridden on Speedplay pedals the large amount of float is a bit strange but after a couple of rides it's so natural. It says in the instructions that you shouldn't initially change the position of of the grub screw at the back of the cleat but I noticed a small amount of play so I turned it in a tiny bit. All in all a top bit of kit. I've just ordered another set for my Carbon Trek. If you don't want knee pain and would like to walk during a ride, get these pedals.

Given these 3 stars even though they are quite deep so recess of shoe needs to be quite deep, also not suitable (see Speedplay leaflet) for various shoes. Also on a recumbent trike they won't go far enough forward in the recess, clipped they feel real

You will need to select a SPD shoe that has the 2 bolt cleat fitting. So most women's MTB shoes should fit no problem. The actual shoe is up to you as its personal preference. If you need any more information or help you can contact on us at email@example.com
