Xpedo offers some of the best value in pedals. While you might expect to pay several hundred dollars for titanium-spindle pedals, Xpedo manages to deliver them for under $200 in its off-road CXR Pro model. Thanks to the premium spindle material, these alloy-body, dual-sided pedals weigh just 240 grams. Made with a larger front retention claw, the CXR Pro excels in the slop, letting you clip-in through just about anything. If they can handle ‘cross conditions, they can certainly handle just about anything your gravel bike will encounter. And sealed-cartridge bearings keep maintenance minimal, even if you regularly find yourself in wet or muddy conditions. Picking up a set isn’t a hard choice but deciding whether to get black or blue might be.
