General information about our shipping
Really easy to fit the additional reflector and simple to attach to the bike. First time I've used these types of clips so still learning. Makes a huge difference to confident and smooth pedaling! Highly recommended.
Was used to SPD pedals and just couldn't get on with them in conjunction with road shoes and SPD cleats. Decided to go for these SPD SL pedals and I'm really glad I did. Much easier 'lock-in' - and just as easy to break out of. Despite being 'light action' I've had no problems with unexpected breakout on rough roads or over potholes, etc. I can see the cleats themselves getting worn/damaged more quickly than metal ones however, so I've bought protective covers for when I am walking. All in all, I'd thoroughly recommend these as a 'beginner' SPD SL pedal.
Good basic road pedals. Easy to adjust, a good introduction to "riding clipped in"
A hardy product - great entry level pedals that are just a solid, reliable component.
Bought these as part of the shoe/pedal package as I'm a novice to road biking. They do everything the say on the tin, easy to fit, easy to use. Great service from Merlin, ordered Monday, delivered Tuesday..
These Shimano pedals are among the best overall for both entry level or experienced riders. Easy tension adjustment for quick cleat release and super smooth entry and exit. High quality, super tough and the silver color really looks good on all bikes. I highly recommend these pedals and they are stock on all my bikes.
I have used SHIMANO SPD pedals for some bicycles for 5 years. Changing my mind to want more speed and stability of pedaling, I decided to buy this one as first try. So, it is primary goal to get SPD-SL pedal with more valuable price, not to see detail spec such as weight. This pedal is a bit heavier than up-grade models, but no problem for my goal. Shimano always offers more quality than the price, light action is the best choice for newbie of SPD-SL pedals.
Great beginners pedals. Easy to mount and clipping in/out works like a charm. And the price!
Recieved these pedals in a bundle with my PR7 Road Bike, found them easy to fit to the bike and secure enough when attached. Recently took them off for the first time to transport my bike and they were easy to remove/reattach also. Big enough surface area that you still feel secure if these are your first clipless pedals. Little bit of scuffing soon develops around where the cleats go but nothing major at all. If you're looking for your first SPD-SL pedals these ones do the job admirably.
Great product. Not sure what to expect from my first set of clip pedals but they did not disappoint. Only fell once on my first ride :)
Nice functional pedals. Easy to fit with either 15mm spanner or 6mm allen key. Wound release pressure right down and now find anything other than clipless pedals seems really odd! Silver finish is wearing well and very happy overall
Clip in and out with ease. Can't fault them.
Fantastic pedal for the price. Easy to throw on the bike and clipping in & out is pretty seamless and easy
Pretty straightforward pedal. Not the lightest but for the right application (training or day-to-day riding) are a great deal.
Awesome value for money pedals. I got these for the first clip in pedals for the missus and she finds them easy to unclip. I used this type for my first road pedals and loved them. Especially how easy they are to clip in and out of. Perfect beginner or enthusiest pedals if you arent counting grams.
Great starter pedals, good quality for their price ! Improved my cadance greatly! 10/10 would buy again if something happened to my pair.
Great set of pedals for the price. They are a bit on the heavy side, but great for training.
Typical excellent Shimano quality - the light action pedal is a great option for a commuter pedal where clipping in and out at junctions is more frequent. I run the Ultegra version on my other bikes and have been more than happy with their performance.
Great choice as a starter for rookie bike rider
Great pedals, high quality, adjusting tension for clipping in and out is a breeze
Solid pedals. Still getting used to clipping in after a couple of rides, transferring from mini mtb spd's, but once in much better for getting power down
Great product for a good price. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good quality pedal and don't want to pay much.
Excellent pedal for the non serious cyclist like my wife who these are for, or for the cyclist who needs a good quality pedal for the winter bike, like me.
Absolutely perfect for me! These are my first pair of road pedals and have worked very well so far. Good price and quick delivery!
My 1st clipped pedals. Easy to use. Excellent fast delivery
Excellent - key thing is the cleats are included. Loads of people selling these at similar price but without cleats.
Great pedal for beginners. Quick delivery.
This is my first clipless pedal. I pedal with giro treble 2 shoes. Very nice upgrade if you are still using flat pedals, it really makes a huge difference for the money, and looks nice with the glossy finish. The pedals are a little bit heavy though
These are a great pedal for any use, they are easy in and out, hold great, good platform, smooth running, last a long time, its the only pedal I use. I ride daily and have never had a problem.
Great pedals. They are the first clipless pedals I've ever used or own, so I don't have a frame of reference to compare them to others, but so far, they work great. It's amazing having your foot be one of with the crank... the amount of power produced and efficiency is amazing! Only had them about a week, but so far so good.
Great pedal, light and easy to clip into.
Good engagement and enough float for my injured knee. Haven't crashed while un clipping yet!
Great Pedals! Clicks in with no problems and has a little bit of float.
Great deal on SPD-SL pedals! I've used Look style KEO the past few years and after reports from fellow cyclists I decided to try these. Love em!
Bought these pedals to attach to a hired bike abroad. They are compatible with my shoes, easy to fit to a bike and compact to go in my case. Perfect.
First time I have used road pedals, they are harder to use than spds but once in support feet better.
Great pedals - large contact area, secure & quite easy to get in / out. No point paying more in my opinion as the quality is good and weight is fine. They come with shimano cleats too
These pedals work great and aren't too heavy. I do a lot of heavy sprinting and they hold well. Not bad seeing as how these are considered "entry-level".
Excellent set of pedals which came with the cleats. Easy to clip in and out of with just a flick of the heel. Couldn't ask for more and excellent service as always from Merlin
Fantastic value, fantastic service.... Pedals are what you expect for entry level pedals... clipping in and out is effortless. Weighting could be improved, but actually my 6800 Ultegra are only marginally better in that department. Use these on my single speed winter trainer and fit the job perfectly. Train heavy, race light....
Good quality but a little hard to clip in right position without look at it. In general, value the cost.
The pedals are fantastic, really good quality for the price and have improved my cycling efficiency no end - have ridden 115miles in the last 7 days and have had no issues. SPD Clips that come with the pedals are ideal for starting out on.
These are my second pair I have bought, I fitted my first pair to my carbon road bike last year, I`ve just rebuilt a 1980s road bike and was goin to leave everything as original including the pedals and toe clips, but after a few rides i decided to put clipless pedals on it, these do make a big difference especially when climbing hills, these pedals are great value and very easy to engage and disengage, can`t see the point of paying any more when these pedals do the job.
Perhaps not the lightest set of pedals on the market but in terms of quality, functionality and quality they represent fantastic value. The cleats (supplied) are easy to fit to the shoe and very easy to engage.
Great basic pedal, have them on a couple of bikes and for the price you can't go wrong
Pedals are light and robust. Cleats are easily destroyed if you walk on the wrong surfaces.
Cracking value, considering the cost of cleats (which are included, the with float ones) makes you wonder why anyone would bother with the 105 or ultegra pedals that are twice the price and no lighter with the same mechanism
Excellent product. Easy to fit, easy to use, and makes daily commute a easier.
My first clipless pedal. Work nicely and a great price from Merlin.
1st time using clip ons and had no problem clipping in or out
Great pedals at a great price no need to pay anymore.As usual the service from merlin was awsom
A good quality pedal, I prefer these than spending a small fortune on a more expensive model as I don't think it makes much difference. Very pleased with these!!
Great product and completely changed my riding experience
These are the light action SPD - SL pedals and they are slightly easier to clip in ands clip out and highly recommended for new users to SPD - SL pedals. I had feared they might clip out under power, but not at all. It's a win win. The finish is first rate and cleats are include too - brilliant value
Bought these pedals from Merlin Cycles along with a Sensa cycle and I have found them to be great for my sportive rides. No nonsence mehcanisim and easy to adjust the tension to suit you.
My first venture into clipless pedals so didn't want to spend too much till I knew whether I I could get used to them. For the price these are excellent especially considering they include cleats. Have been really easy to use, clipping in takes a bit of getting used to but just needs practise. Would definitely recommend them
Great product, plus cleats also included, easy to fit and very easy to se up. Will be buying another pair for my other bike
My first set were so good, arrived so quickly and were so well priced that I brought my husband a set too.... and they're just as good, arrived super quick and still the best price.
Great pedals, new to road cycling so I thought I'd try these before splashing out on ultegra. Don't think I need to upgrade they are great and as usual merlin price and delivery was fantastic.
ideal first pair of spd-sl pedals, quick and easy to fix to my bike and really easy to use with my new "cleated" shimano shoes. Excellent service too and delivered next day !!
Great product, great price and rapid delivery.
Pedals are as expected and offer fantastic value for money,again customer service was excellent arrived two days after ordering, definitely recommend these pedals and would order from merlin again.
Excellent value for money and a quality product
A great budget pedal for your spare bike, and usual quick delivery time from Merlin.
Great Product at a great price. Recommend Merlin Cycles very fast delivery thanks
Great price, great product.
Super quick delivery at an unbeatable price
Excellent customer service. pedals were exactly as advertised
Excellent quality pedal for the price
Merlin have triumphed again with these pedals. The lowest price for, what I consider, to be a quality product. The honesty in supplying the cleats as part of the package was up to normal Merlin standards. I have seen so many other reports on the web of other dealers advertising "with cleats" only for them to be missing on delivery. Well done again Merlin.
This is the second bike I have had these pedals on , can't fault them
A stylish easy starter pedal that is easy to get out of. It has adjustable tension so when you starting out the all important release is easy enough. Would recommend this pedal to anyone starting out.
Product does exactly what it should, easy to fit and easy to get out of!!! I had these on my previous bike and not being a very serious biker these do the job I need them too in the price range I wanted to pay!
Strong robust pedals that engage well on the cleats. Highly recommended
I bought these as my first pair of SPD SL pedals, as opposed to MTB SPD pedals. Combined with a new pair of carbon soled shoes they've been great so far. Took me about 10 miles to get the hang of clipping in and out. Great mix of performance, adjustability and weight for the price. Can't comment on longevity but Shimano stuff is generally good.
You simply can't beat these pedals for the money. Super easy to clip in to and out of. Don't bother looking elsewhere for a great, basic road pedal.
Excellent quality, good looking pedal and although we're not supposed to review the service I must say the transaction was trouble free with a super fast delivery
Great product!!! So fast shipping and received! I recommend to my friends.
This is the most standard elegance and I regard it as the ability of both beginners and middle-class persons to use broadly.
My first use of clip in pedals so i can't really compare them to any other set, but my feet clip easily enough and more importantly come out before I hit the deck!! East to fit and set up
Easy to read web pages - simple ordering process and quick service - Cheers
Good first clipless pedal, easy engagement and release, keeps foot in. What more could you ask?!
These are my first Set of clipless pedals an I can't fault them for the price
Great entry level road pedal, good connection, easy to unclip when required.
This is my first SPD-SL so it's hard to make a compare it with high end, more expensive pedals. Set at a very reasonable price, I find the R540 a good instep pedal.
Nice smart pedal. Not sure how long the white coating will last, but they look quite pretty when new! No real features, just clip in, twist out... simple!
Great pedals, great price and great service - I couldn't really ask for any more than that! I'll be back.
these are a fantastic first time clip in pedals for me, and i find they difinealty do give more pace and connect you with the bike
My item came very fast (Brazil). Around by 25 days. The pedals are excellent. I'm very glad. Perfect!
Exactly what I was after at a great price, I can't tell the difference between these and my more expensive 105 pedals. They were delivered next day too. Perfect!
Perfect great value super service as always, would recommend merlin cycles to anyone!
Very good build, easy install and easy to adjust clip sensitivity.
Good price, good product, decent shipping. Thanks a lot!!!
Only had these a short time but seem to be ok and just getting use to them is the only problem but should be ok in time but cant fault them .Very happy with Merlin posted next day ,alot cheaper than everywhere else i would shop with these again .
excellent product , and with cleats included , and the speed of the dispatch ,well recomeneded
Super impressed. Ordered pedals and cleats and they turned up next day. Price for cleats and pedals was cheaper than just the pedals cost anywhere else. Regards Al
They work just as well as the more expensive models!
These clips are awesome. just like the higher end shimano's. I snap in and out easily and I really like the look of them on my bike. would definitely buy again. Thanks Merlin for having quality products at a discounted price!
Good set of pedals worth the money....
This wepsite is incredible The cheapest . Fastest . Best quality product Ive found on the internet.
