I ordered these pedals to complete the Ultegra group set on my new Scott road bike and am extremely happy with them. Needless to say Merlin had the best price and the service was excellent..arrived the day after the order was placed.
The pedals are easy to fit/set up although I did find the instructions a little ambiguous with regard to increasing/decreasing tension - but that could just be me. They are very well made and finished to a high standard and look very well against the matt black and grey of my CR1 Pro.
First off... a fantastic price and service from Merlin... as always!
Bought to go with the Ultegra Groupset on my Defy and never really considered anything else, so I can't compare it against others.
Very light and easy to use. They have good power transfer and feel secure, but are still easy enough to get out of.
Easy to fit. Look fantastic. Stunning Shimano build quality.
Having had the Shimano R540 SPD-SL Pedals, I can honestly say while they are good for the money.
the Ultegra pedals are a massive leap in terms of build quality and smoothness.
Construction seems more for hard wearing too.
Fantastic quality pedals. Found them easy to get in and out of during traffic and solid power transfer when you're pushing hard.
Shimano SPD-SL pedals in my mind are the best road pedal on the market. OK so some people might like a bit more float of the double sided Speedplays, and other pedals are lighter, but nobody comes close to Shimano for durability at any given price point.
Upsides: Finishes off my 6700 groupset perfectly. Will last forever with some maintenance. Fairly cheap.
Downside: Looks stupid with anything other than a 6700 groupset.
Great pedals. Slightly lighter and slightly smoother than the 105's I had previously (also good pedals). Main reason I bought these was I got a new bike and grey suited better than silver.
Great pedals that are not only light, but also have a good build quality to them. Though the main thing I noticed and what you really want to get out of pedals is the ability to transfer the power straight from your legs, through the the pedals and into the back wheel flying you up those hills and along those flats.
Have been riding on these since I started biking and they have worked without any maintenance at all.
Fits great, I like the big surface.
Great pedals. Easy to use and have a large contact zone which is perfect for my big feet.
Possibly a little expensive being almost identical to lower groupset pedals, but if you're going to have an Ultegra groupset, you want Ultegra pedals right?
A little heavy but otherwise super durable
Great value pedals. If you're on a budget but still want the performance then choose these. Look great too.
Great product at a great price and received in less than 24hrs from ordering. Couldn't ask for more
Nice polish and color. Good quality and works just great.
Brilliant service, quick delivery.
Fantastic pedals, my second set. Very well made. Clip in with a reassuring snap and a adjustment works well. Looks the business..The grey matches the grey Ultegra crank just great.
Love this item.
Excellent quality and build by one of the leading manufacturers of cycle components, very light and smart looking pedal, highly recommended.
Beautiful looking pedals, I've the prior version on a older bike, which has done at least 3 years of heavy mileage and they still run smooth and solid as the day I bought them - purchased this pair for use on a new machine and decided to go with the normal ones rather than the far more expensive carbon versions - frankly the price per gram saved just wasn't worth it for someone like me, who's much too fat to be a weight weenie!
Great product at a great price. Pedals are up to the standard that you expect from shimano - would definitely recommend both the pedals and Merlin Cycles.
Best price on the web bar none for my Ultegra pedals, ordered day 1 received day 2, great service for free and I was kept updated by email. Couldn't ask for more, have already recommended!
A great pedal, but make sure your cleat bolts are done up tight enough-lost one in the first 100miles.
Great value pedals. Look a lot better than the 105 pedals and do the trick.
The pedals arrived quickly, and in pristine condition with all items (although without a box). Good service from company. The pedals proved better than the first generation of SPD-SL, and the first ride on them was certainly fun.
Great pedals, do exactly what they say on the tub. Great service grin Merlin S well, you definately use again.
Very good looking pedals. Reasonably light and have a good solid contact.
Very pleased with them.
