The Keo Blade Carbon represents cutting edge technology and an advanced design that is both simple and elegant. A carbon blade replaces the much heavier, traditional spring for lighter weight and a quicker, more efficient clip-in clip-out sensation. Two levels of cleat retention are offered--a 12 Nm for most riders and 16 Nm for riders seeking extra firm cleat retention.
The Keo Blade Carbon pedals are incredibly light at 93 grams per pedal especially since they feature a large and supportive platform that is 31% larger and the Keo Carbon. New double-sealed, titanium oversize axles provide extreme reliability and rock-solid support without changing the 15.7mm cleat-to-axle distance. A larger cleat contact area and a wear-resistant, stainless steel plate improve both efficiency and durability.
The included Grey 4.5-degree float Keo Grip cleat has soft rubber pads to help prevent slipping on slick surfaces. Look Keo 9-degree float and no-float cleats are available separately. Keo Blade pedals are used by several professional teams and TDF winner Alberto Contador.
These pedals are SO LIGHT! I couldnt believe how light they were when I took them out of the box.
Pros: Light weight great classic design.
Cons: Get a second mortage.
But then these are nearly 100 grams lighter than the Dura-Ace pedals too arent they? You cant have super light weight and high durability. Same thing with 1,000 gram carbon wheels. These pedals do what they promise. Wide stable platform and crazy low weight. I wouldnt run them on my crit bike...
These pedals have a very solid platform and feel very secure once you are clicked in. But, there is one major drawback: Structurally these pedals are not very strong. Went down in a crit crash, and the pedal scraped against the ground and the whole side and back section broke apart. Had this been an aluminum Dura-Ace pedal, Im sure it would have only been scratched.
