Speedplay's lollipop pedals offer dual-sided entry and a selection of colours, axle materials and adjustment options. The Light Actions give 15° of non-adjustable, non-centering float and the unique pedal body and cleat require very little force to operate (once you get used to the stomp motion, rather than toe first).

The cleats take a little extra time to set up - there's a plethora of shims and screws.

They're also very clunky to walk on, but provide a solid platform for pedalling. While the Light Actions are pitched as 'hybrid' pedals, most leisure riders would be far better off with a walkable pedal/shoe combo. That said, they offer a unique free-float feeling unlike any other. The low-stress float is great for problematic knees, but we found that it's not ideal for heavy sprinting because you can drift in the Light Actions too much. They're a good combination of strength and low weight and have a grease port for maintenance.
