Investing in clip pedals will make you faster and more efficient on the bike. It doesn’t have to cost loads of money, either. Here are some of the best affordable clip pedals on the market.

Shimano is famous in the bike world and with good reason. The company invented the SPD pedal system, and the Pedal E-PDM324 is one of the best clip pedals for beginners. It can switch from clip to flat, and it’s easy to get your feet in and out when stopping at traffic lights. Great for commuters at around $50.

For pure road cyclists, the Shimano SPD-SL PD R-540 is a sleek, inexpensive option. It’s easy to clip in and out, plus a large platform makes for a confidence boost for those just getting used to clips.

Crankbrothers is another well-regarded brand and the Candy pedals are one of the company’s best-selling models. Designed for mountain biking, these $48 pedals offer easy access from all four sides so you can clip in and out in a hurry.

Venzo is another strong brand for pedals, compatible with all of the major clip systems. Check them out if you want versatility.
