Strengths:    Great feel from the wide platform. Easy in and out (once you practice a little), never a strain on the knees. Consistent.

Weaknesses:    Clipping in and out takes time getting used to. Weight I guess, although not a big thing with me. Honestly nothing else!

Bottom Line:   
This is a great pedal fro improving your spin and strength. I had SPD's on my bike to start and absolutely HATED them, could not wait to switch to LOOK, these were perfect for me. I highly recommend them!

Strengths:    solid, balanced, smooth, reliable (for me at least)

Weaknesses:    noisy if shoes haphazardly set up.
teh arc adjustment is a completely wastful gimmick (in my view)

Bottom Line:   
excellent balance make this a joy, i struggled with other look pedals in stop-start city traffic, and found the handy spd things to be too washy and soft for anything more demanding, so, forced to compromise, i had thought. these however, sit up so0 nicely you can throw your feet at them from the start and be reassured by a satisfying clunk, and off you go with bags of safe torquey forward motion.

fair enough, in the wet they can make a hell of a squeak, and in fact, when i first rode them i found this a problem in the dry. i think the problem was that i was slightly off straigt on one of the pedals, and this was loading he springs into the rather fancifully described "anatomical release" phase. a little show adjustmetn and they've been totally silent.

happily they also come in a disgusting blue and yellow kelme colour scheme to match my equally revolting blue and yellow kelme frame, joy.

Submitted by Jonathan Zook a Road Racer from Aurora, Colorado

Date Reviewed: December 6, 2001

Strengths:    Good pedal platform for riders with large feet, and smooth bearings

Weaknesses:    Poor craftmanship, and Look needs to address the materials used in the cleats to stop the pedal creak.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these for my new bike over the summer, primarily due to the price, and I wanted to go back to using Look pedals after using Diadora pedals for several years. This was a bad choice. I read many reviews and discussions regarding the cleat creak, but I thought the issue was not that common. Well, the cleat creak is quite prevalent on the left pedal, and becoming more so on the right pedal. On top of that, the float adjustment knob on the left pedal has broken, and will not lock onto a particular setting. I have already removed these pedals and replaced them with and old pair of Time Equipes, and I have been very happy with them.
