The Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 SPD-SL Pedals deliver pro-level performance for the weight-conscious cycling enthusiast. Taking the extra-wide carbon platform that started in their Dura-Ace pedals, the PD-8000's provide more efficient power transfer and pressure distribution to eliminate hot spots. With a wide bearing placement, friction is reduced for longer lasting performance and more efficient rolling.

The PD-R8000's differ from the other Ultegra pedal offering in two key ways: the PD-R8000's feature a lower stack height while simultaneously dropping the weight to 248 grams.


Features:

  • Carbon-composite body.
  • Adjustable entry and release tension settings.
  • Low stack height.
  • Extra-wide platform for a more efficient transfer of power.
  • -0.7mm lower than PD-6800.
  • Claimed weight: 248g.
  • Includes: 3-bolt SPD-SL cleat.

Great pedal

After 15+ years on Speedplay Zero's I switched to Shimano, primarily for a larger platform to try to alleviate hot foot that I would get after 50-60 miles of riding. Unlike Speedplay, these are one sided, but it is in effect the same, since they are weighted so the clip in side is always up. I am clipped in much more securely with less wasted float (maybe I didn't have my zero set screws dialed in enough?) Entry and exit are a breeze. You still need to get used to placing your foot in the correct location for entry - same as when I switch from road to mountain and back. I also bought the cleat covers - much better than the useless Speedplay aero covers that fall off when you walk and get coated with dry lube so you can;t put then in your pocket anyway.

Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 SPD-SL Pedals

Just took delivery of a TREK 7.7FX this summer to keep riding a great all-carbon road bike with fitness bike handlebars and controls. Wanted the efficiency of road bike pedals to work with my Sidi Genius 7 road bike shoes. These Shimano pedals fit the bill perfectly. The pedal cleats give me the right amount of float and the manufacturing quality is top notch. Very easy to snap into and out of pedals with adjustable spring loading on pedals. Id suggest this set-up to anyone in their mid to late 60s who still loves the long rides on flats and hills.

Secure, Easy to Clip In, Quick Cleat Wear

I got these pedals to replace Look Keos that I had used for a few years (the Keos were loosing a metal plate on the top of one pedal). These pedals seem solid. Getting the cleats into the pedals is fine, about the same as the Keos. Getting the cleat out takes a bit more effort at the factory setting, which I have not yet changed. I like the availability of a near-zero float cleat (the blue-cushioned ones). However, these cleats have worn quickly - on both shoes, the outside blue pad was gone after a week of riding, and now after a couple of months, the plastic has worn enough to make walking tilted. But the attachment to the pedals is still secure. Not sure I would buy these again because of the fast cleat wear.

Latest in a long line of solid pedals

I have been using SPD-SL pedals since the first generation, starting with the R600 version. Probably now on my 5th pair, 3 of which are in regular use. The two big changes over the years are the wider body, which makes the cleatpedal interface more stable, and the replacement of alloy bodies with carbon. These latest R8000 pedals are an incremental improvement over the prior 6800 - slightly lighter, slightly lower stack but difficult to tell the difference in use. My 6800 pedals went onto my 2 bike, replacing old alloy 5700 pedals, and that difference is quite noticeable. Significantly lighter, and it's easier than ever to clip-in without having to look down probably due to better balance and better bearings..

For me, Ultegra is the sweet spot in the Shimano range, especially when I can buy from BTD on sale. I paid less than most places charge for the 105 (R7000) version, and the price difference to Dura-Ace is substantial.

Lightweight, smooth pedal

Great price from BikeTiresDirect. The Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 SPD-SL Pedals are lightweight, and pedal smoothly. What I really like about these new models is that it allows for easier cleat engagement. Easy on and solid engagement.

Great road pedal!

I've used Shimano road pedals forever and this design is their best yet. Previously being a Dura Ace snob, I built another bike to leave in another state so I didn't have to always travel with my bike. Ultegra seemed to fit the need. Since then I've purchased several more of these pedals as they work really well.

Some things just work exactly the way they should...

I had been riding some Look Keo carbon pedals for many years. They were getting sloppy and generally worn out. I decided to try the Ultegra pedals this time because the Shimano products are generally pretty solid and well thought out. I did add just a bit of weight to the bike with these but those extra grams were worth it. These pedals are so much easier to find with the cleat and they function so perfectly that I pretty much have to call them perfect. The other factor that was a massive improvement was the cleat. I can walk with confidence on all kinds of surfaces now that I would have avoided previously. I also switched to the blue cleats but that is only about float and nothing more. While I'm sure the Dura Ace pedals are just a little bit better, I highly recommend these as a fantastic intersection of quality, performance and price.

Fantastic Pedals

Upgraded from a set of Look Keo Carbon pedals. Love the silence of them. Even after dirt, rain, and multiple washes, they are still creak free. I have put roughly 1800 miles on them over the past three months.

Terrific pedals

It has taken me aeons to find a combination of pedals and cleat that suit me. I like to take photographs on long rides which obviously involve stopping and getting off the bike. Having knackered innumerable Look cleats by walking on them (and hobbling myself) with my new steed (Trek SL6) I thought I would try these pedals & cleats. RESULT! Not only are they really easy to clip in, and provide a wide three point contact surface to ease pressure on the sole of the foot, the cleats also give a stable walking surface on the road. Brilliant product, terrific price, great website and super service. 5 stars all round!

My Go To for Road Bike Pedals

These are great pedals for my Road and TT Bikes. These do require a little break-in period to get your shoes to exit the pedal easier. Practice with a trainer ,-)

These can be a little pricy but with Price matching and credits for future purposes, BikeTiresDirect always gets me the best offer.

Shimano Ultegra Pedals

These are really a solid product. The finish of the ultegra level is great. These pedals have so much adjustment in the cleat that it can accommodate nearly and position. I have the 5mm linger shaft version, which is perfect for a size 13 foot.
