Shimano Ultegra R8000 SPD-SL Road Pedals
Shimano PD-R8000 pedals feature a carbon composite body and an extra wide platform to maximise power transfer.

- 10 mm body height from axle centre to cleat contact surface
- Large binding target allows quick engagement while wide cleats provides more efficient pedalling
- Stainless steel pedal body plates for increased durability

- Low maintenance sealed cartridge axle unit
- Three types of shoe cleats available: fixed, 3 degrees of float in each direction, or 3 degrees of float from a font-centre pivot
- Weight: 248 grams per pair
Jordan These are mounted to my peloton spin bike, and like the ones I have on my normal road bike. These are probably the very best road pedals you can buy short of the dura-ace level ones but come so close to dura-ace that allot of riders might not notice a difference. Smooth engage disengagement, incredible power transfer, truly a product that withstands everything a rider can throw (or kick) at it) and keep going. A++++
Mr Sodong Nice and well durable to use just like dura ace
Mr Orr Exactly as described and a big improvement over the PD-6610 pedals I was replacing. Shipping was very fast.
Mr Tim Nothing negative to note. Smooth spinning, durable (past versions). These went on a new bike.
David I use these on 3 of my bikes and they are my favorite, especially when Merlin has them at a good price. The 105 pedals are similar and I would not hesitate to go that route if you want to save a few bucks.
Steve It's an Ultegra pedal. Well made, but beyond my need to have a groupset match on my bike, I sometimes wonder why it's so much money.
Mr Matthews These are my second set of Shimano Pedals (the other pair are Dura Ace) and are everything I could ask for: Secure, easy in and out, and very large platform eliminates hot spots after a long ride. Merlin pricing was an extra bonus, and service was great.
Mr Matute The Shimano Ultegra pedals are the latest to be upgraded in Shimano's pedal range and the changes from the older R6800 are significant. First, Shimano has decreased the pedal's stack height by 0.7mm. Stack height is important, as it determines pedalling efficiency.
Mr McGilly Top pedals adjustment perfect out of the box. Great service from Merlin and great pricing, shipment to NZ
Mr Goetz Great pedal! Replaced speedplay zeros. More stable platform than Speedplays. Less hotspots and no lateral play. Entry is not as easy. Float is adequate.
Stephen Solid and easy to fit / adjust. Really happy.
Homero Excellent support great platform in a lightweight package
Mr Craddock Great pedals! Stiff, responsive and reliable. Great buy
Karen The 4" spindles really make a difference as I previously was clipping my shoes against the stays. No More!
Jeffrey Shimano pedals are rock solid in their build quality and always just work. These pedals have a nice wide platform that feels stable. I have not verified the increased cornering clearance but it is nice to know it is there.
Mervyn Typical Ultegra quality. Nice solid carbon pedal with a good power transfer. I won't cycle on a road bike using anything else.
Robert The Ultegra pedals have a classic design with a modern look and profile. They look great and function flawlessly.
Michael Great performance, value and durability - this is my second pair for another bike. As usual Merlin had the best price and shipped quickly.
T Thrall Very good pedals. Lightweight and solid.
Mr Troy First pair of SPD SL pedals and I've managed to avoid any embarrassing spills so far. Easy enough to get out of once the tension is reduced a little. Getting in still takes a bit of practice, but I'm sure I'll get better. Super stiff and light as you'd expect from Ultegra.
Wilson Shimano durability, Ultegra quality - best all around pedal and cleat system on the market. Wide platform, seamless engagement between cleat and pedal, smooth and specific click out. Added bonus: you can walk on the cleats with relative ease. Would never again use anything else.
jason First time I have invested in some quality pedals and I am not disappointed.
