Weight: 286 grams
SPD pedals on road bikes have been a combination for decades. Most riders looking for a walkable cycling shoe are interested in SPD cleats and the corresponding pedals. But double-sided SPD mountain pedals tend to carry around more weight due to two sets of cleat bindings. Plus, the cornering clearence isn't as good as classic road pedals. Shimano's A600 pedal is the obvious choice to get the best of both worlds. At only 286 grams for the pair, the A600 rivals many high-performance road systems, and is lighter than a pair of XTR mountain bike pedals. The spindle is also a high-grade stainless steel alloy, and uses needle bearings for long service life. Pedal binding tension can be adjusted with a 3mm allen wrench at the back of the retaining clip. There are no wrench flats on the spindle, but the A600 can be installed with an 8mm allen wrench. A pair of Shimano SPD cleats is included.
