Built to handle just about anything, the iSSi Flash II Pedal's tough construction is ready for days ripping laps in the mountains, while being comfortable enough for all-day road rides around town. Its jack-of-all-trades, minimalist design starts with accepting SPD-compatible cleats to allow you to use the same shoes for outdoor cycling as you are for your spin class.
Meanwhile, the adjustable spring tension system allows you to start at a lower tension for easy exit and then gradually increase the tension as your skill set increases for more security on more demanding outings. The Flash II's bushing and bearing spindle type offers up an insanely smooth rotation and intuitive feeling interface between pedal and rider. This combination of precision spindle machining and high-quality cartridge bearings ensures years of high performance and minimal maintenance.

- Q & A
Feel just like SPD but looks better
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These binding feel just like SPD because they actually are SPD! The patent on the SPD system has expired so Issi is free to use the system without getting sued. They have taken great advantage of this and made a great line of pedals. I have owned both these and the Shimano XT's and I honestly can't tell the difference when I'm riding with them. They have the same tension adjustment so you can customize the holding power to your liking. I personally like to run a low tension and have found them to be very easy to get in and out of. Plus they come in some great colors!
The only problem I've had with them is one that I've had with Shimano as well. I have had the screw that holds the spring in place back out partially which allows the spring to push part of the clip out of place and makes it impossible to clip in. This is very difficult to fix but again, I've had this happen with Shimano XT pedals as well.
Color scheme from head to toe.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The iSSi Flash II pedal is perfect for adding color to your stealthed-out ride, or carrying your color scheme to your feet. The engage with the feel of a normal SPD pedal, and feel pretty natural, plus the purple color is bitchin'.
