Great pedals at a great price. Easy to set up in fact no adjustment needed straight out of the box. Good firm cleating in and nice broad platform.
Love these pedals. I have been using look for years but wanted a wider pedal to help with numbness in the feet. Works great, very easy to clip in and out and the wider platform feels like it provides better power transfer to me.
Much improved over my previous 105s. The best thing for me is that I find plastic body much easier to engage, especially in the wet. Incredible service. Ordered late Friday; arrived Saturday morning!!!!!
Nice looking pedal, wider, more comfortable and lighter than the old R540 replaced. Supplied with cleats.
Fantastic value and super speedy delivery from Merlin. Slightly heavier than I expected but barely more than my old alloy ultegras.
I was particularly chuffed that they came with an extra set of cleats as mine were wearing a bit low.
Very quick to set up and use - include cleats so no problems with compatability
Great product, easy to install, easy to get in and out of, previously used normal push pedals, these are a good upgrade for entry level cyclist.
Very well constructed, solid pedal, Very comfortable.
I bought the Shimano PD-R550 SPD-LS Road Pedals,
along with Shimano R088 SPD-SL Shoes and they are great. This is my first clip in shoes and pedals and they are fantastic. As ever superb service from Merlin. Thanks guys.
Fantastic lightweight pedals, ideal for the beginner. Easily adjustable and comes with cleats included.
Why pay more for marginal gains? Unless you are an obsessive gram counter these pedals are superb value and provide all you would get from more expensive options.
I upgraded from my old 540s and can't imagine needing to upgrade any further. A great buy
Changed from Shimano 105 (5600) SPD-SL pedals and have to say that these pedals are definitely equal in quality to the my previous model. The wider pedal contact surface is noticeable and adds a more solid feel. No problem getting enough spring cleat retention force either which is something that I thought might occur as these pedals are described as entry level. The only down side is that the resin body doesn't look quite as nice as the alloy body of the 105 (5600) SPD-SL pedal.
Great price and quick delivery from Merlin Cycles.
So good I bought 3 sets, myself (for a new bike) and presents for 2 buddies
This is my first pair of spd road pedals and I can say that I am more than impressed! They can be difficult to get to grips with initially as they are one sided but really make a difference on good climb giving great power transfer. They are also quite light so do not make the bike too heavy. Overall well worth the money
First pair of road pedals, so I don't have a lot to go on, but they seem good to me.
Easy to fit, as you'd expect (they have spanner flats and a hex socket on the end of the axle).
Definitely a more solid platform than mtb pedals that I am used to and no problem clipping in and out with the tension adjustment screws.
Only issue is that whereas with mtb pedals, you can clip in on either side, with these you can only clip in on one side. I assumed the pedals would be 'bottom heavy' so they always presented themselves the right way up, but this doesn't seem to be the case, so getting the pedals upright can be a bit of a pain. This might become easier once the axles bed in a bit; not sure. Not sure if this is the case with all road pedals or not.
These are great value, look the same as the more expensive carbon in the resin (black) same cleat size and operating mechanism. Unless you want carbon weight saving, look no further for a great effective and well made pedal. Works faultlessly and loads of tension adjustment.
Better than the old 105 pedals. Will buy again, or maybe upgrade
These pedals are so much lighter than my previous R540's and more comfortable due to the wider platform. Merlin were quick to deliver with great communications. Thank You !!!
Great pedals at a great price, unless you are a tour quality rider you really don't need anything else.
