Campagnolo Record Pro Fit Road Bike Pedals Review
Renowned manufacturer, Campagnolo has once again produced a fantastic component in the Record Pro Fit pedals. These brilliant pedals effortlessly combine some the latest technically advanced features and traditional aspects to create truly remarkable pedals.
The body of these pioneering pedals is a light alloy, which ensures that the overall weight of these pedals remains startling low at 266 grams, whilst remaining extremely strong and rigid. The stiffness of these pedals as well as the sturdiness of the Record Pro Fit are aspects each of our testers commented on, saying that the rigidity helped enable cyclists to reach impressive speeds.
Another fantastic construction aspect of the Record Pro Fit is the titanium axle, which turns on three high quality bearings. Uniquely, while two of the Record Pro Fit bearings are featured on the inside of the pedal, one bearing is placed on the outside of the pedal for more effective turning.
Similarly, many of our testers also stated and commented on the look and design of the Record Pro Fit pedals. In particular, that although the pedals possess relatively small dimensions compared to other pedals on the market, they still offer a well designed platform, which ensure riders will feel steady and secure on the pedals. While the ergonomic design of Campagnolo’s pedals makes them one of the most comfortable pedals to date and this comfort is really noticeable during longer rides. Overall the pedals look great; with the polished aluminium finish providing the pedals with a professional finish.
The pedals are fitted with floating cleats as standard, with the option of fitting fixed cleats. However, many testers stated that the cleats possessed a few minor problems; in particular they felt they were a little expensive and needed to be stronger, with many of our testers commenting that the cleats did show signs of wear quite quickly. Nevertheless, the cleat pedal engagement and disengagement forces operate separately, allowing riders to adapt the disengagement force to their individual requirements. While the engagement and disengagement of the pedals did appear smooth and easy, when tested.
Campagnolo have once again proven why they are a leading cycling components manufacturer in the Record Pro Fit pedals. They are well built and well designed, offering riders secure, easy to use, durable, lightweight pedals weighing only 266 grams as well as comfortable pedals, which offer riders a respectable 5 degree float option. Overall, these pedals are a fantastic purchase and are certain to impress every cyclist.
