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 Stainless Pedals
Review from Bikeradar
With their compact bodies, double-sided entry and free float, Speedplay's pedals are different from most others. They feel a little odd at ﬁrst, with no spring tension centring your feet, but they offer great freedom to ﬁnd your own natural position for pedalling.
With their tiny lollipop design they offer plenty of cornering clearance and the dual-sided set-up is one of the easiest to get into by just locating the pedal and clomping down.
While the pedals are light at 208g, the 70x45mm cleats are bigger and heavier than most, but they provide a good platform to deliver power with no hot spots. On the downside they're cumbersome and hard to walk in.
Replacement cleats are expensive too, but it's worth remembering that they will last longer than most.
With just 11.5mm of stack height the Zeros are super efﬁcient and come with adjustable ﬂoat and release angle so you can dial them in to your requirements.
Performance and ease of use make these great
Review from Cycling Plus
If you're a fan of float and adjustability then look no further. Speedplay have the pedal's engagement mechanism housed in the cleat rather than the pedal and the float can be adjusted between 0-15°. The way the adjustment works even allows you to adjust the release point for each foot. Stepping in couldn't be easier and the dual sided design gives a good solid click of engagement. They are a joy to use when setting off from traffic lights and awkward junctions, and this also made them a firm favourite on the fixed wheel. The pedal's diminuitive size isn't much bigger than a 50 pence piece, but all the support comes from the 70x45mm cleat that delivers excellent power transfer with no hotpsots. The 11.5mm stack height is one of the best on test and although the cleats cost £42 to replace, the metal base lasts an age. With two precision cartridge bearings and one needle assembly per pedal, the Zero's spin smoother for longer.
Not to be judged on their size, the Zero's are a serious performance pedal.
Review from Road Cycling UK
When autumn comes it's probably the best time to think about making any of those changes to your set up that have been niggling you while you've been riding through those summer months. It had been bugging me since September to test these pedals and see what all the fuss was about.
For those of you who don't know much about Speedplay I'll give you a brief history. In 1989 Richard Bryne patented the Speedplay X design. The company itself came to life in 1991 and hase recently just celebrated its 15th year anniversary. The Zero has been in existence now for around 5 years. Bjarne Riis's CSC team has probably done a lot for the company in recent times, adding both Tour de France stage wins, Paris-Roubaix and a rainbow jersey to the list of triumphs. This year will mark the fourth season the team has been using the pedal system.
Unlike many other systems that owe much of their DNA to the original Look system, Speedplay took a very different route. They basically reversed traditional thinking and placed the retention system in the cleat and not in the pedal. This has quite a few benefits over the normal clipless pedal design. Lower stack height at the shoe interface as the cleat engulfs the pedal results in a more fluid pedal stroke, which is noticeable when climbing. A double-sided nature to the pedal that almost removes missing the pedal engagement. Individual biomechanical set up for each foot.
The Zero pedals are very light; the pedals weigh in at 212g a pair and the cleats including hardware hit the scales at 118g using the short screws. These actual weights are very close to the claimed weights on Speedplay's website, which is very unusual for most manufacturers. The pedal itself has only one main moving part, which is the axle itself. Another great feature of this pedal is that it is completely rebuildable and all parts are available. The welcome provision of a greaseport, accessible through the removal of the end screw, makes regreasing the bearings a dream.
Initially it seems to takes ages to fit the cleats as you have seven screws to install compared to the normal three. This is one case where reading the manual before starting really comes into play otherwise you could strip a screw. The cleat itself is separated into two main parts, the first being the base plate that allows fore and aft adjustment with only a very small amount of side-to-side adjustment. (Note there is an extender base plate that will allow you to run the cleats further forward, this is popular with Pro riders) The second part of the cleat allows for the side-to-side adjustment, which will enable you to set the pedals in a position that has better relation to your pelvis. Also on this part of the cleat comes the float adjustment. Unlike other pedals you do not have to balance the cleat set up, but you can set both the inward and outward rotation. Because this does not affect the spring tension of the pedal, each foot can be optimised.
The advice I received from Nick at Speedplay on cleat setup worked well as it made plenty of sense. He advised to use the 'Heel-In' adjuster so that it didn't hit the chainstay and to open the 'Heel-Out' to the full float. This allows the foot to find its own natural position and not one that is limited by the float of the cleat. If upon use you find that having the float completely open is not to your liking you can of course use the 'Heel-Out' screw to reduce the float. The cleats come with shims that allow the base plate to sit flush with the sole of your shoe. I did not need to use them on the shoe I normally ride with, but these should help match the curvature of the soles better, resulting in a secure fit. The cleats themselves will require some lubing from time to time. Speedplay recommend a Teflon based lube. I have been lubing them about once a fortnight, bearing in mind the wet weather we are currently having.
In use the pedal initially feels very different to my previous pedal. I no longer had this 'locked in' feeling. At first this felt strange but after the first week I found I actually preferred how this pedal felt. I felt as secure in the Zeros but lacked that trapped feeling. My knees seemed to appreciate the more float that I was now able to offer them. It has not resulted in a loss of cadence on the bike, which for me has equal importance with the float it offers me.
Bearing in mind that I have not altered anything else on my bike I am still amazed by the new levels of comfort I now experience with these pedals. Speedplay have always had a good reputation among knee sufferers, but this really is limiting the real gains of the system. Comfort and performance go hand in hand and I can now see why these pedals are so popular. I think that these pedals answer all the important questions that you can ask of a pedal; good shoe to pedal interface, low stack height, aerodynamic (not many pedals can claim that), lightweight, ergonomic fit and ease of use.

Cleats Included: Yes
I didn't over tighten the screws and i even made sure the cleat was flat and over the ball of my foot.
Ive only been able to clip into the pedal twice and they bother took serious amounts of effort to clip in.
make sure you can easily rotate the cleat spring back/forth when you push the ends with a small screwdriver/whatever
put some teflon tube on the cleat spring
Also make sure you dry lube them and have the float screws set to extremes.
Note that any cleat system will be very stiff for the first week or so until the springs/circlips bed in.
if you used an oil lube i think it would be messy, stick dirt to the cleat, and might even seep into the shoe after a while
"What type of lubrication should I use on the Zero cleat springs and bowties?"
"Speedplay recommends applying a dry-type (PTFE) lubricant such as SP-LUBE, Super-Lube Dry Film, RD-50, DuPont Performance Dry, Liquid Wrench Dry Lube, Pro Gold or Blaster Dry Lube to the cleat springs and to the cavity where the pedal nests. DO NOT USE A WET LUBRICANT! Wet lubricants attract dirt and debris and effectively create an abrasive “grinding paste” that causes parts to wear. Additionally, be careful not to apply lubricant to the outer plate of the cleats as it may cause the cleats to become slippery on floor surfaces."
