The Syzr Stainless Steel Pedal System from Speedplay is the resulting effort of a multi-year research and development process, in the effort to make the ultimate, made-to-go-anywhere clipless system. Speedplay started by making the pedal systems power transfer more efficient. This has been done removing any flexible, rubber lugs on the sole of the shoe, instead now the cleat fits directly to the shoe meaning no rider energy is lost during transmission. They have also improved the precision of the pedal and cleat connection to eliminate the slop and lateral instability common to off road pedals.
Another first for off-road pedals is the Syzr’s patented, micro-adjustable float technology. By designing a pivot mechanism directly into the cleat, the Syzr is the only off-road pedal system to provide a user customizable, 10-degree range of float. Cleat set-up is easier too since there is no need to reposition the cleat to make angular adjustments. To make Syzr pedals easier to engage, Syzr cleats feature proprietary Funnel Guides that steer the cleat into the pedal’s latch mechanism. The Two wing-shaped Funnel Guides at the front of each cleat effectively increase the size of the target area to facilitate easier engagement. Additionally, engagement security has been optimized by reversing the typical orientation of the pedal’s latch mechanism. The Syzr’s new latch design virtually prevents inadvertent release when pulling hard on the pedals. This pedal also features special ceramic roller-cam contacts that were developed for Syzr cleats to ensure consistent release in wet or muddy conditions. Instead of the usual metal-to-metal connection that allows other pedals to seize during release, Syzr cleats feature ceramic roller-cams that do not seize when wet because they roll. In addition to improving consistency of release, the ceramic roller-cams provide exceptional, long-term durability. Syzr pedals use precision needle and cartridge bearings and feature a convenient built-in grease-port for easy routine maintenance. Syzr cleats are compatible with all recessed 2-hole shoe mounts, and unlike some systems, Syzr pedals will not cause damage to your shoes.

As with all Speedplay Pedal Systems, local manufacturing is a priority, so many of the Syzr’s components are produced in the US and then hand-assembled at Speedplay in San Diego, California.
