I have been using the 190 gram xpedo thrusts for a few months now and I absolutely love them. I have had three different sets of KEO in the last few years and they all developed play in the axles and demanded a lot of attention. I also never liked the plastic feel of the pedals and the cleats wear out just by looking at them. The xpedo is a much nicer looking pedal, very sleek and low profile. It has a more substantial "click" and the connection feels rock solid. I never use cleat covers and the only wear on my cleats is on the rubberized section that gives you traction when walking on the cleats. Also, excellent bang for the buck. At around 170 retail, these come in way under looks comparable pedal.
