Refined Technology

Dual sided entry - what are the benefits? Having dual sided entry pedals and a secure locking system allows the rider to put the power down efficiently without losing momentum. When changing sports in a triathlon, the dual sided entry pedals will also allow the rider to clip in faster which could make all the difference when transitioning from Swimming to Cycling and getting off of the mark faster than your competitors.

Adjustability

Wahoo-Speedplay-2

Wahoo has included technology that means you can size your pedals up specifically to benefit you whilst on the bike. With 15 degrees of float available, you can set up your cleats exactly how you want - the more float the safer as it allows for the foot to rest in a more natural position making your ride more comfortable. The less float you have the less your foot is going to move - however, it will make each crank more efficient.

It is often advised to seek professional advice, in the form of a bike fit, when it comes to choosing what amount of float would be best. Within the Wahoo Speedplay range, you also have the option to adjust the spindle length to ensure that the pedals are in optimum position for comfort.

Made for the Road lifestyle

With the revitalisation of the Speedplay range, Wahoo have ensured that as little maintenance as possible is needed when it comes to upkeep. By using sealed bearings, the Wahoo Speedplay pedals are capable of cycling thousands of miles without even a glimpse of them starting to wear out.

It wouldn’t be a true Road ride without a preplanned Cafe stop. Wahoo have accounted for this and ensured that the Wahoo Speedplay range have better walking capabilities thanks to the rubberized cover which provides a better base and grip between your foot and the tarmac. Combined with multiple points of contact on the pedals these road cycling pedals and cleats have been designed to withstand constant abuse whilst performing well.

What do the Professionals think?

"I’ve trusted Speedplay for much of my career for their reliability and ample opportunity to custom fit the position of my foot. I ride 20,000km in a year and the improvements Wahoo has made to the pedals gives me the confidence to know that my pedals will work perfectly still ensuring that my biomechanics work on the most important contact point with my bike,” - Ironman World Champion, Jan Frodeno.

"Speedplay pedals give us an advantage over other pedal systems in weight, aerodynamics, and the adjustability of their cleat system. This combination gives our riders full confidence in their equipment on race day and lets them focus on the race ahead," - EF, Education First Nippo, Team Performance Manager, Nate Wilson.
