These are my first pair of pedal that I clip into. They certainly help out on long rides and increased my overall speed. I ride the paved river trails in Orange and Los Angeles Counties and these are working well for me.
Just your basic clipless SPD pedal. Nothing flashy, but very durable. Using these has made my commute and errand running a lot easier and more fun. Easy to clip in, easy to adjust, easy to swing out of. I'd recommend these for anyone looking for their first set of clipless pedals.
Even though these pedals are for my mountain bike I felt they are a bit heavy. Also very snug locking into place.
Put two pair on our tandem. My wife had never used clipless pedals, no problem. Super pedal for the price, work great, easy to clip in, should last a long time, but not the lightest.
