pedal produced by the Look
company, which also produces shoes
, bicycle frames, forks
, seat posts, and other cycling related equipment
, as well as equipment for other sports.
The Look pedal was among the first, if not the first, to offer a large cleat and platform. This lessens foot fatigue and enhances power transfer, thus Look pedals are used by most road racers. The alternative is Shimano's SPD type pedal and cleat. However, Shimano has seen the light, and their new road pedals feature a large platform as well. Their MTB pedals still use the SPD cleat, however they are inferior to Time pedals, and will probably change as well.
