However, it’s the lower rotational weight, the ride quality and the increased power transfer the pedals deliver that really makes them special.
Increased power transfer? Really? Vs. what?
Perhaps a rider/reviewer quote would have more credibility if not so obviously exaggerated. Hey, they're light (have low rotational weight) - now that's believable.
As for prendrefeu's questions about walkability, etc.
Price aside, the primary obstacle for Ultralite’s pedals gaining acceptance is the markedly different clip-in/out method. While Beidleman and Emerson say the learning curve is short, we found ourselves grabbing onto cars at traffic intersections when we were unable to pop out at stoplights. The company has not tested disengagement in the event of a crash, and we were not inclined to do so either.
Other drawbacks from the cleat design follow — walking on the narrow cleat feels much like walking on an ice skate. And while Beidleman says rubber bumpers to the thermoplastic cleat are in the works, the plastic showed wear from walking after just one use. As with Speedplays, getting mud or grit into the cleat can affect engagement.
Sign me up, LOL. Well, at least if I want a good scale shot to impress people on this site,
