Speedplay announced the launch of an even more trimmed down version of their already minimalist Zero pedals – called the Zero Pave.
Curiously, it’s taken Speedplay years to bring these pedals market, given the fact that they’ve been in service with such pros as Fabian Cancellara and Stuart O’Grady as far back as 2006 and 2007.
According to Speedplay, despite having less "body’, the new Zero Pave offers the same contact points as the regular Zero.
“Originally developed for Speedplay’s professional cycling teams, Zero Pavé pedals have been thoroughly tested and proven over the years with numerous victories in the world’s toughest races including Paris-Roubaix, Tour of Flanders, Gent Wevelgem and Strade Bianche,” says Speedplay.
"I knew that harsh conditions could play a decisive role in determining the outcome of races on pavé," said Speedplay’s CEO, Richard Bryne. "My goal with the design was to provide our riders with the best equipment for such unpredictable conditions."
Apart from the regular Zero, which features a composite body with metal inserts, the body of the new Pave is CNC-machined entirely from metal at Speddplay’s facility in San Diego – with a choice between titanium and stainless steel.
Speedplay claims, that the titanium version weighs in at claimed 188g a pair and costs $499, while the stainless model is 230g a pair and costs $339.
The Zero Pavé is Speedplay’s minimalist, race-tuned design built specifically to handle the harsh and unpredictable conditions of the legendary European cobbled classics. Based on Speedplay’s popular Zero pedal technology, Pavé pedals shave non-essential material to ensure entry and release in wet and dirty environments. Originally developed for Speedplay’s professional cycling teams, Zero Pavé pedals have been thoroughly tested and proven over the years with numerous victories in the world’s toughest races including Paris-Roubaix, Tour of Flanders, Gent Wevelgem and Strade Bianche.
