Highlight features of the new pedals include lateral contact support that helps guide your foot into your pedal, and provides a point of contact even if you have not yet engaged the cleat. This wide contact area also prevents your foot from sliding on the pedal body and offers support.

The mechanism is also designed to work regardless of external conditions (think mud). Increased space allows for better debris shedding and gives the user a more constant and stable feeling of being securely clipped in.
