I have searched other posts and the weight listings, but have not found what I'm looking for all in one place. Has anybody enterprising WW ever compiled the weights of the various popular pedal systems?

Based on Competitive Cyclist's website:

Speedplay Nanogram Zero Ti
2 Pedals = 130g
2 Cleats + Hardware = 88.5g (3-hole mounting)
System = 109.25g per foot

Any other accurate, comparable data like this out there on other pedal systems?

Thanks.

Thanks for the link, didn't know they had that on their site. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to include any of their competitor's newest pedals (Time iClic, Look Keo Blade, Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 or Ultegra 6700 carbon, etc.). Also, it would be nice to have an unbiased source for the weights.

They're unbiased and accurate. it just helps to compare your latest product against your competitors' older heavier products.

Not that I agree with Speedplay's marketing or business practices [because I don't], but the Nanograms are indeed a very light pedal system [and much lighter with the proper shoe]. Even if they used the newest products/specs, I do not believe you will find many that are lighter.

I do not agree that you need to add the weight of the 3 hole adapter to the total weight since you can by the proper shoe to eliminate the adapter. Less than 100g a pedal/cleat is impressive.

Problem is they are a limited use race day only pedal system. As such they cannot be compared to any other pedal system on the market.

From their own manual -
Speedplay Nanogram Pedals are for race-day, limited occasion use only and not for every day riding as the materials were selected for achieving maximum performance rather than for long-term durability


For the price they are asking I'd expect a modicum of durability FFS.

Well, if the only issue is durability (as opposed to reliability on a given ride when not yet old), then it really is just a matter of cost vs. performance. If Mark Zuckerberg rode, then I'm sure he could afford* to have a new pair of Nanograms for every ride, and therefore they need not be only race day.

* even after Facebook's stock price collapse the last few days

I know that Nanograms are marketed as a 'Race Day' pedal but my imitation Nanogram pedals [alloy plates, Nanogram copied spindles, ceramic bearings, and Nanogram cleats] have lasted over 4k miles and a year of riding without any problems.

Yeah, there is wear on the bowties but they have yet to unclip under full power.
