General Specifications
About the Product
The Kéo Classic 3 spindle is made up of an oversized steel axle with miniature ball bearings (12 mm inside x 18 mm outside) and a needle bearing cartridge for improved wear resistance. A spacer is used to hold the needle bearing cartridge in place.
The Shimano A600 is the lightest SPD pedal available. With the weight and stiffness of a road racing pedal and the convenient recessed SPD cleat of a mountain pedal, the A600 is an excellent choice for riders that aren't always on the bike.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
LOOK Cycle Keo Classic 3 Road Pedals
  • They perform fabulously. Easy clipping and release.
  • Much better power transfer with pedaling that my previous MTB clips.
  • These pedals are an excellent addition to any road bike and also provide great value for money.
  • Great product. Well designed and robust. Quite light and easy to clip-out.
  • Lighter and less bulky compared to other brands at this price.
Shimano PD-A600 SPD Road Bike Pedals
  • It is wide like a road pedal to give you a comfortable platform and light enough not to extract a huge weight penalty.
  • They are fantastic for person who wants less weight but still wants to walk normal in their shoes.
  • I like the light weight and it fits with the rest of the Ultegra components.
  • Light weight, good looking, so far so good.
  • While these seem to be the "lightest" pedals out there, they are double the weight of my old SPD Shimano pedals.

What customers say about "Features"
LOOK Cycle Keo Classic 3 Road Pedals
  • Great build quality and are easy to service by gaining access to the spindle with the appropriate sized spanner.
  • Easy to unclick and come with a set of cleats.
  • Good value for the money, comfortable and easy to clip in/out.
  • Was surprised to see more wear on the pedals.
Shimano PD-A600 SPD Road Bike Pedals
  • They have great bearings and are going strong after a thousand miles or so this year.
  • Pedals bearings may seem stiff at first but loosen up with use overtime.
  • Awesomely smooth bearings.
  • Nice pedals easy to clip almost too easy.
  • Since it's one sided entry, I wish they could weight this pedal so that the cleat side is up naturally.
