The Record Pro-Fit Ti is Campagnolo's top-of-the-line offering in their pedal line up. Innovative, ergonomic design focuses on shoe-pedal ergonomics. Massive platform offers great power transmission and all-day comfort. Pedal height is extremely low, so the foot is very close to the pedal axle and the pedal stroke is rounder.
Other highlights include independent engagement and disengagement settings - while the pedal engagement force is constant, the force required to disengage the foot from the pedal can be adapted to the rider thanks to an adjustment screw that controls spring tension. Simply brilliant. The Record Pro-Fit Plus turns on a hand machined Titanium axle with three high-quality, sealed bearings. Two are positioned on the inside and the other the outside of the pedal body. We dare you to find a bearing with a smoother action on a pedal.
I have had my Campagnolo pro-fit pedals from the year 2001. I don't casually ride my bike bird watching. I either train to race or race it. I have had the same pedals for 13 years and counting. They are designed in a way that you can unscrew the spindle, take out the spine and apply grease to it. If you do this at least once a year your pro - fit would be able to last that long also. By far it has been the best pedals that I have had period. Along with my Campagnolo group set, these pedals are the best in the market especially if you can repair the components instead or replacing it.
Pros: light, durable and can be rebuilt if necessary.
My Campy pedals have lasted between 30,000-40,000 miles. Finally replacing them--with nothing else but Campy. Tried Shimano and Look, got hot spots. Have had no problems with Campy until they finally started to wear out.
I, too, have been riding Campy Chorus and/or Record pedals since 2002. As I understand it, the Chorus is no longer available and the difference is cromoly vs titanium axles. With the Records use antiseize otherwise you get a ticking noise in your crank...not so with the Chorus. As to cleat squeaks, it isnt lube that you use. The cleat is dirty, Ive found, and I scrub the whole area with dawn and let dry. Clean the pedal as well and that cures the issue. I am a big Campy fan since I purchased an all Campy bike in 1972 and never replaced any parts and still havent on that bike but brake pads. I now ride a 2011 Colnago and a 2010 Serotta, both equipped with these pedals and never a problem clicking in or out so I am not sure what that issue is all about. The pedals are expensive, but you never have to replace them or barely service them. Ride what you like, but for me Campy is da bomb with durability unmatched.
I have had these for about 4 years. They are bullet-proof with the following exceptions: a. If you need to clip in & out frequently, like on a club ride, they are annoying because the pedals are so small & not counter-weighted to hang correctly for your foot. Quick clip ins after stopping are not easy. b. cleats wear quickly & squeak like "Fred" until you replace them. Nothing helps; talc, lube...Squeak, squeak, Squeak up every hill..............New cleats are NOT inexpensive.
Yes the pedals may be a bit priced over some other pedals, but with the 4 deg. float it has saved my joints big time. I started riding in cleats, then came look and later Shimano. I rode them all, but when Campagnola came out with the pedals it took me only one ride to sell me on them. I have riden them since they came out, my only concern is that they price themselves out of business. So I hord extra cleats and one set of pedals.
Get the Dura Ace 7810 pedals. better platform, better technology and $300 for these middle of the road record pedals is silly. Yet another wildly overpriced Campy product.
Well, lets be clear. The editor says that the keo plastic and campy plastic wear at the same rate. THAT IS NOT TRUE!! Like the other fellow, I ride over 7K miles/year. I recently purchased some KEO carbon pedals. They suck!! The plastic cleats need replacing after only 2 months! My campy cleats are still going strong after a year. The little covers they give you to protect the keo cleats slip off. Worst of all the Keo pedals have way too much float. Maybe thats good if you need that much float, but the campy float seems just the right compromise between locking up you knee and slipping off the pedals. Anyway, Im taking off those expensive Keo pedals and going back to campy pedals. I should have known better, but the bike dealer sounded so convincing.
I drastically disagree with Keo ed, I rode/raced look pedals for probably 12 years or more & replaced the cleats at least 2 or 3 times/yr and probably should have been 3 or 4 times/yr. I also had problems with the cleat wearing into the aluminum pedal body on the platform and in the front where the cleat hooks in under the toe of the pedal. I have probably been through 3 or maybe 4 different sets of look pedals in during this time. I do ride an average of 7000 mile a year and I do live in florida, if that makes a difference. I switched to Campy Record Pro-Fit in 2001 & the cleat is 1/2 plastic & 1/2 metal, and Im just know ready to replace the cleats and this is September 2006, thats about 5 years for 1 set of pedals & cleats, and as for the pedals they have very minimal wear if any at all where the pedal body makes contact with the cleat & the bearings are still smooth. I have considered swithing to the Time Ti-Carbon pedals, about 70g lighter.
Ive used a few other brands of pedals. I love my time atacks but on my road bikes none work beter than campy. I have two pair of record and two of chourus one of each is over six years old, without a problem.
The Record Profit is absolutely the finest pedal I have ever ridden! The overall quality, looks, and durability are unmatched by all other pedals period. The Look Keo Ti is also a great pedal, however I have had more success with Campys cleat system -- no plastic there; and no feet slipping out of the pedals, ever.
The Campagnolo cleat is half plastic and wears down at the same rate as a Look Keo - ed
