Is the Wahoo Speedplay Aero pedal the ultimate performance pedal or slightly wide of the mark?

Cyclingnews Verdict

The most purposefully performance-orientated pedal around with a nice approach to cleat adjustment, but it comes at the cost of dual-sided entry, fiddly setup and a high price. If you can get over those, then the Wahoo Speedplay Aero is a fantastic choice.

Wahoo's Speedplay pedal range, announced earlier this year, comes as a result of the US brand buying Speedplay back in 2019, and now they're vying for a spot in the best road bike pedals market. 

With the boom in indoor cycling, it's no wonder that brands like Wahoo are forming their own ecosystems of interchangeable and related tech, which enrich the indoor training experience and allow users to track their data using a variety of products and services, from the best turbo trainers to power meters and cycling computers.
