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.

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.

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!

Great pedals without the Dura Ace price

We got an amazing deal at BikeTiresDirect for these great looking, excellent quality pedals. The Shimano Ultegra line of components is an excellent choice for those that don't want to spend the money on the top of the line Dura Ace but demand quality. The functionality is as good but just a slight bit heavier in most cases.

Long-lasting quality

As light and as technical as their Dura Ace offering from a couple of years ago, Shimano's R8000 pedals are strong, light, and reliable. Adjustable release tension is a must-have. Metal wear surfaces will ensure these last a good long while. Are the new Dura Ace pedals worth the extra money? Not to me, but you have the budget go for it. I'm sticking with Ultegra.

Excellent and works perfectly

Got this on sale and it worth every penny. With only three contacts points on a bike, having a high quality high performing bike pedal is essential. The lighter weight and improved wider platform allows easy spinning and great power transfer through the pedals. If these are on sale definitely buy them.

Nice pedal, lightweight, large platform, very difficult to kick out of even at lightest setting

I like everything about this pedal except its tightness. Pros lightweight, smooth rotation, large platform, excellent energy transfer. Cons It is very difficult to kick out of these pedals. This may be more of an issue with new cleats. I have the pedals on the lightest setting and repeatedly work on clicking in and out. However, I really need to concentrate on a technique that works and plan ahead when I'm going to kick out, because of the stiffness. I've ridden about 300 miles on these pedals and the yellow SPD-SL cleats to date. I've lubed the contact areas on the pedals and pivot point, and have even worked the pivot action thousands of times using soft jawed vice grips. My next option is to try blue cleats because they have less rotation, to see if that helps with kick out. The most consistent kick out technique I have found is to firmly press the front of the cleat forward against the front of the pedal clasp prior to rotating the heal outward.

Pretty much the perfect pedal

These pedals are solidly made, have a very positive engagement mechanism, and are easy to flip with your toe before re-engaging. I have thousands of trouble free miles on previous generation Ultegra pedals, and I see no reason why these should be anything less than super reliable. I have no issue with weight as I don't think pedals are where you want a superlight component. You want a rock solid pedal that you never worry about. Other nice things - they look great and you can ride your bike in tennis shoes for short distances without discomfort or fear of slipping off. Just remember not to bunny hop.
