I seriously just hope they are priced better than their $250 fan.

If these measure power, count me in! I have used Speedplay pedals for 25 years and I am eager to get into power after riding on Zwift for a year.

Same (though ~10, not 25.) If I can get Speedplay powers at a reasonable price, I'll buy them on the 16th. If there's no power version coming out of Wahoo, then I'm jumping to Favero. It would seem like a massive miss to not 1) have their own power pedal to add to their ecosystem, 2) bring in all the existing Speedplay fans, and 3) buy Speedplay, do nothing for ~2 years, then come out with a rebadged version with no grease cap. Fingers crossed for sure.

I don't have any proof but I think we will see a power pedal. (https://www.dcrainmaker.com/...er-pedal-future.html) Also I believe with enough of top eSports (Zwift, RGT, etc.) requiring dual power recording for pro/premier level racing, it would be foolish not to give sponsored teams and riders a way to do this within the Wahoo ecosystem. I mean MetriGear was able to do this about 15 years or so ago, so other than Richard Bryne's personal objection, I don't see why it hasn't been done already.

I do know that the redesign was to combat the rock that the butterfly plate created after some wear and to stop the pedal body deformation when under extreme load, I believe the stability in the new system opens the door for a nice power meter that I hope to equip on our bikes.

It’s a pedal!! That’s the same as before with slight aesthetic changes. I have to imagine power pedal is in the works, though.

I like that the standard tension and easy tension seem to be compatible with the various options. My wife tried using Zeros but just couldn't get used to them so the easy tension might be an option for her.

but I still want power!

here is what i wrote about them on our front page. i will tell you what i know, that you want to ask, if you have questions. i've had, and used, the new pedals and cleats. but the power pedal they're keeping a lid on. i've asked (for example) if the POWRPLAY ZERO will come in various spindle lengths, and they just have chosen to keep it all under wraps for now.

You missed the big qualifier

Are the new cleats backwards compatible to existing speedplay pedals?

Well, Wahoo's marketing is light years ahead of the previous Speedplay marketing. Although "The only dual side pedal platform" is a pretty dubious claim given that SPD and other MTB systems have been on the market for decades. Not sure it even is accurate for road pedals (and of course plenty of people use dual side SPD or other MTB systems on the road). They may eventually be able to claim the only range that's dual sided across both road and MTB?

I'd think they likely have a winner with the power pedal if they don't go crazy on the pricing. Assiomas are very highly regarded, and my wife's are solid and accurate, but they seem pretty limited in their manufacturing capacity and don't have the brand recognition of Wahoo. Will be interesting to see how well the launch goes. And I'd assume that a MTB/gravel offering will not be far behind but they'll have to figure out how to armor that pod, which is the weak spot of the Assioma SPD conversion hack.

They appear to be compatible both ways. It doesn't look like they changed the cleat interface.

Am I the only one that doesn't have the issue with the pedal body wearing? I have a pair of Zeros that are closing in on 20 years old and don't have a problem with them. Maybe it's there and it just doesn't bother me.

yes. everything is backwards/forwards compatible. as the front page article notes ;-)

Are these Wahoos Assiomas indeed? Looking at the GP Lama video, the Wahoos have almost the same pod than the Assiomas and they even have the same 4 LEDs but in blue.

I haven't seen any speculation as to a collaboration between the two companies and that would certainly be interesting to know. That would explain how they were able to get to market in a relatively short time. If they developed it on their own they certainly borrowed a lot from Assioma!

Thank you. Is there any difference in the cleat compared to the old version or are they same? I converted to speedplay a year ago and realized I should have converted years ago. My only issue is that my cleats rust very quickly so I’m hoping that there’s some kind of improvement for corrosion protection.

I certainly have issues with pedal body wear that leads to rocking. I have a number of pedals where you can no longer read the "L" and "R" on them. I also have some where the bearings have worn out due to water ingress and grease leakage. I'm cautiously optimistic that the sealed bearings will be metal ring on the outside of the pedal will fix some reliability issues for the pedals. Downside might be higher cleat base-plate wear, but I'll take replacing cleats over pedals.

The contrast is interesting because I consider them one of the most durable cycling products I own. I have 3 pairs, all bought between 2000 and 2005, that I still use. The bearings in the oldest pair have gotten a bit sloppy and they reside on my trainer bike. I literally went years without greasing them.

The other two pairs still work fine. If there is rocking, I don't notice it. I'll have to look closer at them later tonight.
