We ordered a VO version of these pedals as soon as I saw them at at a European bike show. These are simply stunning pedals. Notice the chrome plated cages, reminiscent of old Campy pedals. But on second thought chrome cages must weigh a ton. How about a superlight 267g per pair? And that's the whole pedals, not just the cages. The secret is that these are chrome plated aluminum alloy, not steel. Brilliant!
They use high quality sealed cartridge bearings for long life and no maintenance. They are very smooth. They have alloy, not plastic, dust caps. The pedal bodies are polished, in the VO tradition. And the VO logo is discreetly etched on the pedal body.
With a 96mm x 60mm cage they are a perfect size for most folks. Now there is absolutely no good reason to get a loose bearing road pedal. Per pair.
