General Information
Cosmos were apparently the last Zeus components released before to the company's demise in the late 1980s, prior to Orbea's acquisition of the brand. While earlier Zeus designs were often viewed as derivative (though high-quality) Campagnolo copies, Cosmos seems to be an attempt by Zeus to establish its own identity. The Cosmos pedals exemplify the '80s trend toward more-or-less triangular quill pedal bodies with proprietary toeclips – a path also followed by Shimano, Campy, Gipiemme, Ofmega, Rino, Maillard, MKS and others – but Zeus put its own spin on the design with a sleek and slender forward platform, recessed toeclip hardware and silky-smooth bearings. Conceptually similar to the company's earlier Super Cronos pedals, Zeus Cosmos pedals added improvements like a narrower, slimmed-down body, shorter axle and a rear cage plate possibly borrowed from Zeus track pedals.
