Nothing ruins a rigorous Peloton workout faster than your feet sliding off the pedals because you’ve worn away their tread over the course of multiple sessions. Even worse is when you have a hard time using these exceptional stationary bikes because their default pedals don’t match your foot size, shape, or pedaling style. In these cases, a replacement is not just recommended. It’s essential.
In this article, we’re going to list the five best peloton pedal replacements that will have you back on your bike and dripping sweat in no time. Each of these pedal options is fully compatible with the Peloton bike and are chosen for various criteria ranging from price to design to sizing options and more.
We’re going to start out the list with one of the most popular and renowned bike pedal options, in general, the Wellgo WPD- E003.
Although these pedals can be limited in their compatibility (so if versatility is a priority, then they might not be the best choice), they are perfectly suitable for your Peloton.
These are heavy-duty, durable bike pedals that have been specifically designed for stationary bikes. Many users enjoy that these Shimano Pedaling Dynamics (SPD) pedals come equipped with toe cages for additional grip and support that allows you to wear virtually any exercise shoes of varying design and size.
But if you don’t have any workout shoes yet, don’t worry because these pedals come with compatible cleats!
In addition to being built for durability and functionality with an aluminum body, steel axle, and adjustable release tension settings, these pedals only weigh at 256g per pair, making them incredibly lightweight. As a result, you can feel at ease that these pedals will support a comfortable and productive Peloton session for years to come. But should they unexpectedly occur within the first two years of your purchase, they pedals are covered under a 2-year warranty.
Another favorite amongst stationary and standard bikers are the BV Bike Shimano SPD Compatible 9/16” Dual Sided Pedals.
This is another pair of pedals that will allow you to pedal your Peloton to the metal in virtually any shoe you prefer, whether it be cycling shoes or everyday workout sneakers. They feature a relatively wide platform, a removable toe cage with adjustable straps on one side, and cycling shoe compatible features on the other.
Just like our previously listing, these pedals from BV Bike also come with cleats, toe clips, and other accessories to provide the ideal fit and increase your shoe possibilities, thanks to its dual-function design. Another advantage of this option is that these cleats are reasonably priced, especially considering their design and the use of exceptional materials, like ED-painted aluminum, nylon, and alloy steel.
While the Venzo Fitness Shamino SPD pedals are a very close second here (and perhaps our secret sixth recommendation), the superior Venzo stationary bike pedals for your Peloton are the Venzo Sealed Fitness Exercise pedals.
The reason we prefer this option is that despite paying about $20 more than the Venzo Fitness Shamino SPD pedals, you get much more bang for your buck with the Venzo Sealed Fitness Exercise Pedals. In this package deal, you’ll receive:
With their triple function design, these are the be-all-end-all stationary pedals for your Peloton. The level of adjustability and versatility these pedals allow is above and beyond, from the adjustable cage position to the adjustable tension, all with a simple turn of a screw.
These pedals are also compatible with SPD, The Look, Delta, SPD-SL, as well as providing a flat option and featuring a standard pedal thread that is compatible with nearly any stationary bike, should you find you need to swap them off your Peloton for whatever reason.
Another highly affordable option we’d like to list here for your Peloton are the Sunlite Training 9/16” pedals.
These pedals might not have the same level of versatility and adjustability as the previous listing, but it will certainly get the job done and provide ample support for your daily Peloton workouts.
The only side note we’ll make here is that these pedals aren’t suited for outdoor activities, so if you have your Peloton setup somewhere that it is exposed to the elements, you’ll want a different pair of replacement pedals.
That being said, the 9/16” spindle on these pedals makes them perfectly suitable for a Peloton, and they feature a dual-sided design similar to the Wellgo WPD-003 with an SPD style clipless compatible side and a standard platform on the other.
Despite being a relatively budget-friendly option, you won’t be sacrificing quality with these pedals, as they, too, are made of the same high-quality materials as most of the previous listings, most notably aluminum and steel.
We’re going to close our list with a pair of pedals from one of the most esteemed cycling companies on the market. The Shimano Ultegra R8000 SPD-SL pedals will exceed all your stationary biking expectations and are well worth their hefty price tag.
These are considered pro-level pedals best suited for professional-level performances. Each pedal features a carbon composite body and stainless-steel body plate to ensure it is lightweight without sacrificing durability.
Additionally, the pedals feature an extra-wide platform for maximum power transfer, ideal weight-bearing placement, and ultimate support. These pedals do not feature a toe cage, making them a superior choice for individuals who aren’t fond of that design or perform best without them.
The one downside to these pedals is that, despite their cost, cleats are not included in their purchase like the other options. That being said, if you’re a pro athlete who uses their Peloton religiously for training, these will indisputably be the best pedal replacement option.
