installed these on my road bike that I use to do all my training for races, rides and triathlons. Have been using Look brand pedals my whole riding life. These are lightweight, durable, easily adjustable and perfectly suited for the cycling enthusiast.
Use Look KeO pedals on both bikes so as to not have compatibility issues with shoes, cleats, and cleat covers. I decided to stay with the original non-blade version due to familiarity and a belief the non-blades orient better for clip-in. So far I have been very pleased with this new set which replaced a KeO pair with 43,000 miles. I also like the tension adjustability feature rather than one preset tension.
It's hard to beat the price point. However, the clipless retainer plate wears rapidly, which is why this is my third set,of Look pedals in 4 years. The wear is especially bad if you ride in the rain or on dirty roads and dismount occasionaly. I ride Time, Shimano and the Look. The each have thier quirks but nothing is perfect for every rider. I have the carbon spring version of Time and i see Look is pushing their version. However, with look you have to buy complete new carbon blades to change retention strenghth. With Time you have three adjustments with one carbon plate. Spring or carbon blade? They serve the same funtion, but the spring version is a lot cheaper.
The Look Keo 2 Max Pedals are easy to clip in and out. I purchased these pedals on sale and they are a great pedals for under 100.00. I would suggest buying the black as the white pedals don't look as good after a few rides the pedals start to look dirty.
These are very nice pedals. They are very compact, but offer good support. Very smooth and excellent cornering angle. Only slightly harder to get into than the old-school Look pedals, but you get used to them quickly.
Have had these for a while and by far some of the easiest pedals to use.
Very solid, no noises at all.
Even at the lowest setting haven't had any issues unclipping. And that's from spinning 110 cadence to hardergrinding lower cadences.
If they don't always sit vertical (1-2pm), give them a few rides, this was the case with mine.
Cleat wear is okay. Commuting doesn't help with the stop and go.
I upgraded from the Keo Easy to the 2 Max peddles, and I am very happy with my decision! The overall quality and construction make it well worth the few extra dollars I spent to upgrade. I couldn't justify the extra expense for the carbon, or titanium, so the 2 Max fit my price point perfectly....
I've ridden many miles with the other brand of pedals, but the Look KEO pedals are the best. They spin easier than other brands so smooth right out of the box. The cleats with the teflon piece in back really make getting out when you want to a sure thing. I've gone down more than once because the other pedals hung up and could not get out. These KEO cleats are securely held in when I'm riding hard and can still get out when I want or need to. These KEO 2 MAX pedals have a larger spindle to hold up to my size and 200mm cranks on my new bike!!
I got these pedals for my new TT bike and have been very pleased with them. No issues clipping in or out of them except on very rare occasion. For a fast TT transition you'll still need to do something to get them more even for fast clip-ins (ruber bands or something), but that's the case with pretty much any pedal like this.
