Speedplay Zero Aero Track Pedals
Track riders generate massive force and transmission of that force and ultimately rider safety rely on the cleat-pedal interface. Speedplay's Zero Aero Track Pedal System uses a substantially more powerful spring tension then the non-track version and it is quickly becoming a favorite not only in the track world, but also with pro cyclists who specialize in sprinting for the same reason. The Zero Aero design also optimizes a very low stack height and feathery aero profile. Leave it to the innovators at Speedplay to create the most aerodynamic pedal system on the planet. Developed specifically for events where every second counts, the Zero Aero Track Pedal System provides more speed with the same power. Every cyclist knows that improving aerodynamics creates a competitive advantage that is simply too significant to ignore. Thankfully for Bradley Wiggins, the Speedplay Zero Aero pedals became available just in time to be used when he set the hour record at 54.526 km with an average speed just under 34 miles per hour.
The Zero Aero Track Titanium axle pedals are the result of every aspect of its design being painstakingly tailored to increase speed by reducing wind drag to the smallest amount possible. Frontal area is reduced to the absolute minimum. Every surface exposed to the wind is dimpled including the pedal, Zero Walkable cleats and the Aero Base Plate Surround used for three-hole shoe mounting. When clipped in, the Zero Aero Track Pedals create a smooth, streamlined profile that is nothing more than pure genius.
Just like the other Zero Pedal systems, the Zero Aero Track allows rotational float to be precisely micro-adjusted to the exact range needed or set in a fixed-position anywhere within the 15-degree adjustment range. This means left and right float can be independently adjusted for the perfect pedal feel. Each of the three critical foot-axis adjustments of Zero Aero Walkable Cleats can be set or changed without affecting the position of the other two adjustments. This feature also eliminates guesswork and misalignment when replacing cleats.
The included Zero Aero Walkable Cleats position your foot closer to the top of the spindle with a stack height of 11.5mm for three-hole mounting and 8.5mm for 4-hole mounting providing improved power transfer. Combined with the lightweight titanium axles, cornering clearance is an unbeatable 39 degrees due to the short 50mm shaft length, so you can confidently power through corners. This is crucial for the track, were low bottom bracket heights, extreme speeds, and banked surfaces make clipping a pedal easier. Beside the aero benefits and minimal clearance, the primary driver of the design, per the name, is that the Walkable cleats improve traction and allow for a more natural gait when walking, making off-the-bike time in your cleats much less awkward and substantially safer, without damaging the functionality of the cleats themselves. These cleats are also compatible with Cleat Buddies to protect your cleat internals when walking.
As with all Speedplay products, the quality is superb. Zero Aero Track Titanium pedals use precision cartridge and needle bearings - three of them instead of two found in most other pedals. This is one of the keys that allows all Zero Aero pedals to be thinner for a lower stack height and better cornering clearance. For easy bearing lubrication, a fitting to facilitate grease injection is included. The locking edges of Zero Aero pedals and cleats are metal-on-metal for durability and safety, unlike other manufacturer's designs where engagement edges are made of plastic. If you need the lightest Zero Aero pedal, with the greatest spring tension, the shortest axle, and the most cornering clearance of any pedals system, you have not choice but to choose the Zero Aero Track Pedal System with Titanium axles.
