I don't know. think I can claim, with justification, that Zeus 2000 pedals were superior to both Campagnolo "Super Record" and Superleggero" pedals.

Not only did the 2000 pedals use sealed bearings, but they also used titanium cages, which resisted wear much better than the soft aluminum used by Campagnolo.
