Nope as they were always heavier.
If you have biomechanical problems, weight should take second place, i've never really looked at the weight of saddles, bars, grips, shoes or pedals. Obviously i get the lightest one that does the job, but if there is lighter that doesn't work for me. I don't bother.

I think another reason was they were supposedly harder to walk in.

Never found that, even going back to TBT. Which really were heavy! There was a spate of cracked cleats on the early i-clics i think, or maybe Xpressos.

3)Feet not in-line with knees while in "ready position").

Have you tried Time pedals? Especially if you ride a lot that may help you because of their "float" which is much better than the Shimanio floating cleats.

Xpro 15: 175g for the 2 pedals! :thumbup:
