VP Components' VP R73 Carbon Pedal is its new road pedal designed with the same attention to detail as its plethora of mountain bike and urban pedals. The VP R73s were constructed from carbon composite with a stainless steel crash plate. The body is wide which gives you optimal power transfer and a solid feel. The pedals are compatible with either the VP Components 7 degree cleat or the fixed position cleat, sold separately. If you've ever replaced your cleats and gotten the placement slightly off, then you'll love the new split cleat system developed by VP. This design allows you to replace your cleats in two separate pieces so that alignment remains the same. No more sore knees from poorly placed cleats. The VP Components' VP R73 pedal is available in Black.
