Pros & Cons

  • The extra light spring in the pedal makes engaging or disengaging easier. Ideal for beginners.
  • The spring tension can be adjusted with a small allen key, meaning you can increase the spring tension if you so require.
  • The bearings are of a lesser quality than the high-end pedals, but then the price is proportionally lower as well.
  • Relatively heavy.

This SPD-SL PD-R540 Light action pedal from Shimano features a wide platform for an efficient power transmission. The broad placement of the bearings provide a stable and balanced distribution of the applied power. They have fitted this pedal with a closed axle-unit for a longer lifespan of the bearings.

The SPD-SL PD-R540LA Light action version has less spring tension for effortless clipping in and out. Perfect for the rookie.

Nice looking pedals!

Nice looking pedals. Feel pretty heavy. First impression was that they are quite basic pedals. Nothing special but right choice for me.
