Mountain bike pedals use cleats that recess below the tread of the shoe. Therefore, they are excellent for all kinds of cycling that include regular walking - mountain biking, touring, commuting, or recreational riding. Don't feel limited by their mountain bike heritage; they work equally well on all styles of bikes.
Wish your "SPD" pedals were sometimes flat so you could use a non-cycling shoe? Decksters are the perfect answer. Attach a spare pair of Shimano SPD, Torelli Bormio, Ritchey Mtn, Look Quartz, Crank Brother Candy, Time Atac, or similar 2-bolt cleat to bottom of Decksters then snap the platforms into your pedals. It's that easy! You now have a set of high quality platforms for casual riding or more technical riding where cleats are more than you need. Twist to release. Includes 2 thick metal platforms (95x85x10mm) plus mounting hardware. Does not include spare cleats. Does not work with Speedplay cleats and pedals ..... $34.99 pair Add to CART

"I ride all sorts of clipless pedals, but I always come back to Time ATAC's. They offer the best mud and extreme condition performance with flawless entry and release despite a slathering of trail goo. Did I mention float? The ATAC's sport 10 degrees of float making them easy on the knees." Bike Magazine

Weight is 312 grams per pair with cleats in the stainless version and a mere 275 grams in titanium. (If you weigh more than 185 pounds, we recommend you use the stronger stainless pedals rather than Ti.)
