Reviews Ritchey Pro V4 Micro Road

Ritchey Pro V4 Micro Road

Tom Ritchey hates excess weight, which shows in this miniature single-sided version of his MTB pedals. The tiny forged steel body certainly keeps weight down but, combined with the small MTB-style two-bolt cleat, makes engagement tricky. Hit it bang on and you’re fine, but miss even slightly and the smooth sole of road shoes will slip straight off.

The lack of any sort of broad support outside the metal cleat means more roll and a looser feel than the other pedals here, even with maximum spring tension and fresh cleats. And you’ll need a seriously stiff sole not to suffer hot spots on longer rides, and they’re dreadful to walk in.

On the bright side, they make for a very light pedal and cleat set-upat 262g, despite a very competitive price. They’re also ideal for anyone who uses SPD-style pedals on their mountain bike and doesn’t want to change pedal styles between bikes.
