    Get any Speedplay Zero series, Shimano (dura ace or ultegra), campy (record or chorus), Look, or Time pedals. All of them are designed for road racing and are actively used by professionals who are far more powerful than yourself. Buy them, read the manual, install them, adjust as necessary. As far as I know, all pedals release with an outward (from the frame) motion of the ankle.

    i heard that campy is quitting their pedal systems, if that helps your decision.

    Aerolite require too much motion to release. I have them on my track bike because they have great clearance (will rub shoe before rubbing pedal). And the grip is adjustable which I prefer on the tight side. Again, making it tough to get out easily. Plus the cleats are bulky and vulnerable when walking, so I wouldn't recommend it for a road bike.

    I've had bad experiences with Time pedals (suggested above).

    They're hard to get into, and the cleat wears out and or breaks quickly. Ultegra pedals (SPD-SL) on the other hand are the best I've used. Easy to get into, the cleats are tough, and I've never pulled out of one in a sprint.
