Keith - yea, that type of pedal is called SPD-SL. Dura Ace is just one variety of that pedal that Shimano makes. Of course it's the lightest and most expensive, possibly the best. But funcitonally, it's the same as all other Shimano SPD-SL pedals, they all release either way and they all use exactly the same cleat. The 105 and Ultegra versions work exactly the same, the only difference being pretty much an ounce (30 gm) of weight per pair.thevalvesource said:Camilo-
I'm talking about pedal styles like the Dura Ace style pedal.
In my recollection, Speedplay pedals only release heel out. Perhaps there's been a design change, I went back to Looks some years ago.Camilo said:Anyway, I've never heard of an automatic pedal (aka "clipless) that doesn't release both ways.
