Single direction release?
I currently have a pair of shimano SPd shoes for my Mtb and looking to add pedals to my recently purchased road bike! Are the cleats supplied single direction release or is it the pedal itself?
I read on a review that someone had to turn their foot toward the frame of the bike rather than away from it which I currently do on my mtb, turning towards the frame doesn't fill me with much confidence in the middle of traffic should i need to put a foot down quickly.

The release is a function of the cleat and not the pedal. All Shimano cleats (SH51,SH52 & SH56) release by twisting your foot outwards (or inwards) but the SH56 allows you to roll your foot as well.
These pedals were supplied with SH51 cleats.
Although theoretically possibly, I do not understand why anybody would want to twist their foot inwards to release.
