X2-LOTS of float(37 degrees) w/o the ability to adjust. 'May' have a 'not attached to the pedal' feeling.
Zero- adjustable float, less 'free float' feeling.
Light Actions-essentially same system as Zero with easier effort to get in and out of the pedal. NO float adjust.

Have a shop with a demo program?

Can anyone confirm my suspicion (admittedly based on appearance, plus "reading between the lines" of Speedplay's ad copy...no first-hand experience w/ either model) that the Light Action pedals are not as well-made as the Zero (or the X-series)?

The pedal has a chrom-moly spindle, made 'offshore), but there is a Zero model with the same spindle. The cleats are the same except NO float adjust and a weaker spring for easier entry/release.

I wouldn't say they 'are not as well made', just a different design is all.
