    Default Campagnolo compliant pedals

    My Look Keo Max pedals are on their last dregs.

    Chorus drivetrain so it pains me to look at Dura Ace, and something about the Look Keo Blade doesn't appeal to me.

    Anybody ride the Keo Max 2 carbon or cromo?

    Don't think I want to try Speedplay unless someone convinces me.

    If DA wasn't Shimano I think I'd pick them or Ultegra but I've never ridden SPD for road.

    Don’t overthink it. Dura Ace Pedals are the best. I used to run Campagnolo with DA pedals and nobody got injured.

    I have many pairs of Keo2Max carbon. Work fine.

    What about Campagnolo Pro-Fit pedals? They would definitely be Campagnolo compliant.

    You need more info.

    Shimano road cleats are called SPD-SL. They are basically Shimano's redesign of Look's classic triangular plastic cleat. External mounted to the surface of a road shoe's sole. In concept, they are basically the same system, but in function, they work quite a bit better in several ways. The cleats are more durable. The pedal hangs vertically for easy entry. Pedal surface is wider. Their pro-cleats with the blue bits on them are great - not too floaty not too fixed.

    Shimano's recessed cleat system is SPD. They make both mountain/cx and road pedals with SPD, but they do not make anything higher than Ultegra. You need a shoe that accepts recessed cleats for those pedals.

    If you like Look road pedals then you will have zero learning curve with Shimano SPD-SL road pedals.

    When moving from Look to SPD-SL I believe there is a learning curve. The Shimano pedals feel differently to me. Maybe it is the lateral float of a few millimeters, or the rotation at the center of the cleat on the yellow cleat, or the minimal 2 degrees of rotation and pivot center on the front with the blue cleat, but it is not a seamless move from one pedal system to another in this case. With Shimano I always feel conscious of my foot placement on the pedal. I never felt that way with Look, or Speedplay.

    For me, an ideal pedal would have the free rotation of Speedplay, and the surface area of SDP-SL.

    Now somebody let the dog out.

    Campagnolo pedals have proven themselves reliable and comfortable for many years.
    If they suddenly seemed to no longer exist, my next choice would likely be Speedplay.

    Go completely off-piste and get some Keywin...

    You are not the first to recommend Keywin for me. Something about them spooks me. I can't offer a rational reason why. Tell us more about them.

    I switched from LOOK Keo to SPD-SL. I also recall a slight learning curve. Nothing near as steep as when you first started on clipless pedals, but not it's not exactly the same. Having said that, I'll echo everyone else. Go SPD-SL. I'm glad I did and I can hardly remember the dark days. They work well without any fuss.

    Sadly, other than knowing about their existence I can't offer more information; personally I have mainly used Speedplay (Zero) or Shimano SPD-SL (red cleats) with success.

    I'll admit that it does annoy me that both companies use cleat/pedal body materials that aren't dissimilar in hardness so they both wear out. With Speedplay I wore the inner/outer edges of the body so you could rock your foot along a parasagittal plane. With SPD-SL I wear the nose/rear mechanism so red (fixed) cleats develop float. In reality, it I could spring for them, I would probably go for Speedplay Zero Pave editions...

    The technology and ideas behind the unique Keywin pedals does look pretty cool.
    I also need my pedal manufacturers themselves to be as viable as possible, too.

    With a fleet of bicycles my wish would be to "standardize" on a reliably-available pedal between them all.
    As it is, my roadbikes differ from my mountainbikes, yet I wouldn't seek to introduce even more differences.

    My road drivetrains are all campagnolo with DA SPD-SL pedals.

    Bonus: the cleat is easier to walk in that than the look cleat.

    Had nothing but good luck with Time pedals myself. Maybe that means I need to go buy a lottery ticket, but they've worked great on my bikes. Better float than the Shimano stuff according to my knees.

    It's the cleat re-centering tension that bothers me.

    Go with what you know.

    I went from older Keos to the blade, and they are fine. It’s a bit of an adjustment as the lack of a spring in the back means they don’t fall “heel down” and you sometimes have to give them a kick to get them in the right orientation to clip back in. But I try to spend more time pedaling than clipping/unclipping and the feel while riding is identical to the more traditional keos.

    I also have what I think are Max 2 on the bike on the trainer. I think I bought them because they were on sale. They also feel like look pedals while pedaling, and other issues I don’t care about so much because that bike doesn’t actually go anywhere.
