No other pedal system comes close to offering the superior adjustability or cutting-edge performance features of the Zero. Speedplay have created and patented the most technically advanced pedal system ever, featuring a choice of either a fixed position or up to 15 degrees of micro-adjustable float. Once you compare the features of Zero pedals to any other brand, you'll find that other pedals systems are no match and like all Speedplay pedals, they have accomplished this without compromise by ensuring that the locking edges of our pedals and cleats are made of metal, not plastic.
No other pedal system offers the precise adjustment or convenience of independently adjustable fore-aft, side-to-side, and rotational foot positions. Unlike the inexact set-up of traditional cleats, each of the three critical foot-axis adjustments of Zero cleats can be set or changed without affecting the position of the other two adjustments. This feature also eliminates guesswork and misalignment when replacing cleats.
Zero pedals use precision cartridge and needle bearings - three of them instead of two, which are found in most other pedals, allowing the Zero to be thinner for a lower stack height, better cornering clearance, and reduced aerodynamic drag. Like all Speedplay Pedal Systems, the locking edges of Zero pedals and cleats are metal-on-metal for increased durability.
The Zero cleat fits any shoe with a 3-hole or 4-hole mount and has a built-in grease port for easy bearing lubrication so maintenance is easy.
Dual side entry: The symmetrical double-sided pedal self-locates just by stepping down into the cleat whether the pedal is right side up, upside down or anywhere else in its rotation.
The choice is yours: The Zero allows rotational float to be precisely micro-adjusted to the exact range needed or set in a fixed-position anywhere within the 15-degree adjustment range.
The lowest stack height: The Zero cleat positions your foot closer to the top of the spindle for improved power transfer: 11.5mm stack height for 3-hole mounting or 8.5 mm stack height for 4-hole mounting.
Cornering clearance: The thin pedal profile of the Zero pedal lets you power through corners where your rivals coast (37 degrees).
Large and stable pedalling platform: The Zero Pedal System provides the same solid connection as conventional single-sided pedals, but with Speedplay's unique, inverted design the cleat provides the platform once the cleat in engaged.
True locking mechanism: The Zero's locking mechanism does not rely on spring tension for security, so entering and exiting Zero pedals is easy, but unintended release is virtually impossible.

Magazine reviews for Speedplay Zero Chrome-Moly Pedals
Review from Bikeradar
Speedplay's unusual clipless pedal design is an established favourite with very few flaws.
Zero pedals feature low weight, low stack height, high cornering clearance and adjustment of both float and release angle. Plus their double-sided design makes them incredibly quick and easy to get into, a boon for riding in traffic. It's a package that makes them one of the best clipless pedals, despite disadvantages of pricy replacement cleats and poor walkability.
Speedplay's Zero pedal differs from most clipless designs in having the retention mechanism in the cleat rather than the pedal. That allows Speedplay to make a double-sided system that's both light and has very low 'stack' of just 11.5mm - the distance between the pedal and your shoe.
Low weight is an obvious advantage. A low stack puts the rider's centre of gravity closer to the ground , which makes for more confident cornering. The compact shape of the Zeros also provides lots of ground clearance. These are great pedals for accelerating out of tight corners while your rivals are still coasting.
The pedal body looks small, but your shoe is supported by the 70x45mm cleat that delivers excellent power transfer with no hot spots.
Other Speedplay Zero plus points include the adjustable release position - from zero to 15 degrees; the grease port on the pedal body for easy maintenance of the two precision cartridge bearings and one needle assembly per pedal; and the ease of entry that results from the double-sided design.
That's the big advantage of the Zero. Entry is a no-brainer: just locate the pedal with the cleat and stomp. No need to flip the nose or get a cleat tab into an engagement point. That makes the Zero especially appropriate for commuting, and very friendly to clipless pedal beginners.
There are a few downsides. If the cleat's retention spring breaks - as happened to me on a commute a couple of years ago - then you're limping along with one foot not properly attached. You can still ride because the cleat still fits round the pedal, but you have to be very careful not to slip off. I was late for work.
The large aluminium bottom face of the cleat makes them tricky to walk in. Care is needed to avoid going on your arse between parking bike and ordering coffee. Speedplay makes cleat covers - called Coffee Shop Caps - to make them more walkable. On the upside, the design protects the engagement mechanism from walking-related wear. When the aluminium plates get worn, just replace them and the cleat is as good as new.
Unlike some clipless designs, the Zero has no spring tension pushing your foot into a 'centered' position. That's both a plus and a minus. The unrestricted movement will feel odd if you're used to spring-centered pedals, but if you have sensitive knees, this feature allows them to find their neutral, most comfortable position.
If you don't like or want float - some riders' knees don't seem to like it even though the majority do - you can dial it right out with the Zeros,.The two screws that adjust the limits of float make it easy to adjust the rotational position of a floatless Zero or the release point of one set to float..
The manual bears careful reading. The tension of the screws that fix the cleat to the pedal can affect how hard it is to release. Don't tighten them up too hard.
At £42 a pair for replacement cleats, the Zeros are not cheap to run, but the metal base lasts an age so you won't be up for new cleats too often.
After many thousands of kilometers on Speedplays I'm happy to recommend them to anyone switching to clipless pedals. I've noticed that mountain bikers switching to the road get on well particularly with them because of the double-sided design.
Highly recommended double-sided clipless pedals with great cornering clearance and low stack height.
