The Mavic Race SL Ti Pedals may not have a radical design, but they do have a proven and well-executed design. In the Race SL Ti, Mavic offers a light, refined, and stable pedal that's worthy of the pro-level moniker. What's more, this is one of a select group of pedals with both a titanium spindle and no claimed rider weight limit. So you get the lightness of a Ti spindle, with enough rigidity and strength for larger riders. The Race SL Ti is constructed mainly of aluminum, with a carbon fiber retention assembly. There's also a carbon fiber plate where the forefoot lands for a reliable connection between the cleat and pedal. You'll notice the subtantial width of that cleat/pedal interface -- this is Mavic's Energy Transfer System, which ensures that the sum of your power is directed to the drivetrain. Additionally, Mavic uses only high-quality cartridge and needle bearings for its pedals to ensure that drag is kept to a minimum throughout the lifetime of the bearings, which should be a long time due to their sealed design. Even if the bearings do wear out, the Race SL Ti Pedals are completely serviceable. The Mavic Race SL Titanium Pedals feature tension adjustment via a 3mm hex screw. Mavic pedals use a triangular cleat similar to those used by other manufacturers. However, Mavic's 'DuraCleat' has strategically placed wear-resistant zones so that your coffee shop treks and unexpected hike-a-bike sessions don't erode your ability to clip in securely and mash with confidence. These pedals come with cleats that allow for 7 degrees of angular float, but 0-degree float cleats are available.
Strengths: None they no loner offer replacement cleats
Weaknesses: DO NOT BUY THESE Pedals, Mavic in its arrogant style no longer supports these with replacement cleats so once the ones that came with these wear out you'll just have to throw the pedals away.
I wouldn't purchase their newer type cleats for the same reason, buyer beware
