This X-2 Stainless Steel set of pedal is fitted with Speedplay's 65mm axle (also known as the 1/2" longer spindle) for riders who benefit from a wider stance like a certain top Pro Tour sprinter everyone had heard of. Many riders and bike fitters are finding some riders can create more power and/or be more injury free with a wider stance.
Since the release of the incredibly innovative X series pedal in the early nineties, Speedplay has amassed a huge following of cyclists. Absolute free-floating design with no centering device offers the ability for your foot to float and rotate to your natural bio mechanical position while pedaling. Dual-sided entry makes getting clipped in to the pedal a snap. The other innovative design feature is the retention mechanism resides in the cleat, so there are no moving parts on the pedal to worry about.
