Ultegra Road Performance

The Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 Pedals borrows heavily from the flagship Dura-Ace PD-9100 to deliver pro-level performance for the weight-conscious cycling enthusiast. The extra-wide, lightweight, carbon composite platform offers a huge target for clipping in, so rolling away from red lights and the start of a crit are hassle-free affairs.

The large body also provides more efficient power transfer and distributes pressure better so long days in the saddle aren't met with hot spots on your feet. The low profile design increases road clearance for improved confidence when leaning through the turns and getting back on the gas.

Durable, integrated, stainless steel body plates help reduce flex, wear to the pedal body, and provide a smooth surface for the cleats, promoting smooth float. The wide bearing placement offers stable and uniform load distribution so bearings last longer and roll smoother. The adjustable entry and release tension let you customize the settings for a casual easy in-and-out to a vice like grab needed for track racers or sprinters.

Features:

  • High-quality pedals for road adventures
  • Wide carbon body offers stable support
  • Steel body plate for durability
  • SPD-SL cleat for 3-hole shoes
  • Adjustable entry and release tension
  • Available in standard or long spindle variations
  • 6 degrees of float
  • Adjustable cleat tension
  • Includes SPD-SL cleats
  • Weight: 255g pair

More power as registered by power meter than my previous pedal. Shimano is great!

I was having problems on swift with my pedal so tried this pedal and it worked great, I am older and have tried many pedals. I have not used them in town but zwift and country ridding is really much better with this pedal.

The construction is tough and easy on my feet I use yellow float.

Long-lasting, simple pedals and cleats

I really like the simplicity and so far the reliability of these pedals and cleats. After nearly 4,000 miles, and many rides through rain, these have held up extremely well. Once the cleat position is dialed in, they just work, and I don't have to think about them. I do regrease bearings every 700-1k miles or so because of the rain, but even that might be overkill. Simple to do. I'm also still on the first set of cleats - maybe because I try to avoid walking in them. At the current rate, I expect these pedals to last for many thousands of miles to come.

I'll note that coming from (now ancient) Speedplay X2s with huge, non-adjustable float, the first rides on the SPD-SLs felt very restrictive even with the yellow cleats. In fact, I hated them at first, but it honestly didn't take long to adjust and realize that I didn't need all of that float the Speedplays had. Afterwards even new Speedplays just felt sloppy. If I could change one thing on the shimanos, it might be just 1-2 more degrees of float and was one reason I considered Look Keos. But I'm happy with my choice and see no reason to switch. Also if the cleats get a little dirty, no big deal. I once stepped on a single raisin with my speedplays and had to dig a sandy mess out before I could even clip in.

I do recommend taking an allen wrench on the first couple rides to adjust the cleats on the fly. And once you get them dialed in, mark or spray paint the cleat position to make it easier when you replace them.

Great Pedal

I recently began converting my gravel bike to full road setup. New ties, and pedals . Shimano never fails to impress. To me better value than the Dura Ace model. The weight difference does not concern me..

Long spindle makes a huge differrence

I purchased these long spindle pedals. They feel so much better than my older narrower pedals. Love the simplicity of the SPD system.

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.

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.

I used to ride Dura Ace components, but Ultegra is so good now that when my old components wore out, I bought all Ultegra components. Like everything Shimano --- they just work.

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.

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.

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 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.
