Can someone help ID these pedals?

Got these at the local bike co-op for 15 bucks and wanted to see if I could figure out what exactly they are. And would they make a decent set of pedals for someone switching to clip less for the first time? Thanks.

Those are Look "Delta" style pedals & cleats. One of the original clipless designs. I have been using that style for a long time. Good sturdy design. I think the red cleats have more float that the black ones, allowing your foot to pivot a bit. Some people like this because they have sensitive knees and float allows the knees to move a bit more.

Deltas are not even close to the first generation of clipless pedals. There at least one generation of LOOKS before them, and there were clipless pedals before LOOK make them popular.

Those are the ARC cleats, which have some float.

LOOKs like the Deltas are decent pedals. Newer pedals are lighter and have a lower stack heght. The LOOK cleats tend to creak annoyingly.

FWIW, I saw Look Delta cletes at Performance the other day (actually bought them by mistake for the beater bike) so they are still supported.

Can you explain what you mean by float and stack height? How does that translate to feel on the bike?

Float allows your foot/cleat to move or pivot around on the pedal as opposed to be completely fixed. Your toes can turn slightly right or left. Stack is the height your shoe sole is above the pedal or the thickness of the cleat
