Speedplay Syzr Pedal

Available At:
Syzr

The Syzr pedal uses cleat and so-called "stabilizer wings" for stabilization of the feet. There is no direct connection between pedal and shoe sole. The pro: no annoying noises, no wobbling, no wear at the shoe. Cleats are made of steel for maximum durability. The extra large platform gives support even when the cleats are not catched. The Customize Pedal System offers an individual adjustment (Q-Factor, length of legs). Left and right pedal are adjustable independently.

Strength:

Speedplay's strength is the lateral float their pedal system allows.

Weakness:

Unlike other off road pedal systems with open engagement mechanisms that clear mud, the Syzr cleats have a closed end slot for engagement of a tab on the pedals. The slot becomes filled with mud, and when you try to engage the pedals it packs the mud into the slot, preventing engagement. The design does not work in mud, dirt, sandy soil, etc.

DON'T BUY THESE PEDALS if you plan to ride off pavement. Speedplay markets them for CX and MB. However, if you take one step into mud, they will clog, and you won't be able to clip in. The design is useless in mud. If you're going to stay on pavement, and want float in your pedal system, just stick with original Speedplay pedals.

Strength:

Outstanding connection to the bike, float that works, wear on shoes has no effect on cleat fit. No releases from pulling back too had as with SPDs.

Weakness:

Takes some practice for clipping in fast.

Soeedplay on the road comes to speed play on the trail. These are the best connection to the bike of *any* mtb pedal made. Especially good for xc riding or single track. Highly recommended.

Spend some time breaking them in and adjusting the release tension to what works for you.

Strength:

Easy to grease.

Weakness:

Hard to click in and out when the tension is adjusted so you stay clipped in off jumps and in technical terrain.

This is a review of Syzr pedals that look different than the one pictured. The problem is that the spring loaded jaw is in the front of the pedal so that any forward pressure when riding will cause a release unless the tension is adjusted very high. Then they are hard to click in and out of. Save your money!
