Top SPD

- Willem, 11 August, 2020

After riding Speedplay pedals for several years I switched to Shimano. Adjustment takes some getting used to (listens more closely than the Speedplay) but once properly placed it is top notch. I prefer using the red plates over the yellow ones (too much play), easy to get on and off.

Pros & Cons

Precise adjustment
Price
Several play options possible
Precise adjustment is a matter of measuring and fitting

Top product, that definitely clicks!

- William, 11 August, 2021

Works great and it seems it is also wise to replace them regularly.... Never really thought about it, but all this time I couldn't click in nicely was because they were worn out.

Easy to attach Shimano click parts

- Puck, 13 November, 2023

The Shimano SPD-SL are easy to attach to your click shoes. You can adjust them to your liking. Just starting out with click shoes? Then adjust them a bit looser so that engaging and disengaging them on the bike is easy. Do you want a tighter fit and already have experience with click shoes? Then you attach them a bit tighter. You can do this as you wish, which is ideal! A must-have for cyclists!

Pros & Cons

Can be attached as you wish
Easy to fix

- J123, 16 February, 2022

Always rode with red, these will last almost all summer if used correctly (i.e. not running half marathon on the shoes). Assembly is easy, but with the red variety you have to be careful to be very precise with the assembly to avoid injury.

Pros & Cons

0 degree clearance is ideal for racing
Easy assembly, red requires precision
You can ride up to 10,000km with proper use

I hardly notice the difference with the yellow plates. Now have the blue ones (2 degrees clearance) and they are fine. Do buy new ones every 8 months. With worn plates, your foot can come loose.
