Winter, summer, mountain biking, road biking, touring, commuting, whatever
And get a dust cap on your pedal:rolleyes:
I just use the flats on these during the winter, when it is cold enough that I ride in my insulated hiking shoes instead of MTB shoes.
I used to have the A530s which are similar but more of a touring pedal. They work great for a touring/century bike, but can get slippery with wet/frozen soles. These are better for keeping your foot in place, especially when standing. If it is above freezing and the roads are fairly clear, I wear my MTB shoes with neoprene covers and clip in just like in the summer.
Two sided SPD compatible. Any brand.
I will second cyccommute's choice in winter pedals.
I have ridden the "winter" pedals from 45 NRTH and was not impressed. There is a massive hump near the cranks where the bearings are and it drives me crazy.
My old stand-by
What I rock now (Looks were on sale when I broke my last set of Times)
I normally run Shimano SPDs, but they come off when the snow starts to fly. If clipped in, something with an open platform is best to allow the snow/ice buildup to fall through, i.e. Eggbeaters style.
*This is coming from a MTB perspective: gotta hike-a-bike here & there, so you get inevitable build up in the cleats.
now I know what that little black thing was
Mine are cheapie Power Grip pedals. Since I ride fixed-gear in the winter, I want some form of foot retention, but I want the ability to bail without any thought if need be.
I use these Forte Boulevard pedals. Attachment 359860 The slightly curved platform side fits my non-cycling winter boots quite well, and the spd side works with my winter cycling shoes.
Big flat pedal with steel pins.
