asily the most recog­nis­able ped­als out there, Speed­play’s lol­lipop-shaped Ze­ros are a pop­u­lar choice among the pros thanks to their low weight and ad­justable float range. As if its 164g ti­ta­nium-axled ver­sion wasn’t al­ready light enough, in 2011 Speed­play launched the Zero Nanogram – an un­fath­omably feath­ery 65g pedal.

At 130g for the pair, they’re al­most half the weight of a pair of Shi­mano Dura Ace SPD-SL ped­als, and even Look’s top-end Keo Blades, with a car­bon body and ti­ta­nium axles, are around 60g heav­ier. The Ze­ros also have the added weight-saving at­tribute of mak­ing the pur­chaser’s wal­let sig­nif­i­cantly lighter – to the tune of £600.
