Miche Supertype MT7 pedals

This is the flagship pedal from Italian brand Miche, and an impressive design it is too. Our pair hit the scales at 266g – 342g including the cleats – which is lightweight although not quite super-light. You do, though, get a very large platform to spread the load and keep pressure to a minimum.

The body of the pedal is CNCed alloy, the axle is titanium and the fastening plate is carbon fibre. You control the locking/release force via an Allen bolt at the back and a little display tells you the level of tension.

Clipping in is positive – a solid ‘clunk’ tells you that you’re attached – and twisting out is just as clear-cut. One of our bearings felt a little rough out of the box, but one ride in and it was running ultra-smooth and both pedals have stayed that way since, despite high mileage and some heavy-handed – or should that be heavy-footed’? – abuse.

A grease port in the pedal body allows you to apply lube directly to the axle and cartridge bearing without taking the whole thing apart, which is handy. We’ve not even had to do that yet – these pedals are very resistant to letting water and grit in.

The yellow cleats supplied don’t have any float, so if you like a bit of foot movement you’ll need to get some red ones instead. They use the same bolt pattern as Look (and most other brands) so fitting them to your shoes is simple enough.

The only problem is the price

Verdict

Very good lightweight pedals - but you have to pay for that performance
