Pros & Cons

  • Only marginally heavier than the Dura Ace pedals but at a much friendlier price.
  • The stainless steel pedal axle is maintenance-free.
  • The wide surface area of the pedal ensures optimal power transfer and load distribution.
  • The material of the pedal is a little softer which means it's more easily damaged in the event of an impact.
  • Compared to some of the other pedals, the Ultegra pedals are fairly expensive.

Description

The Ultegra R8000 SPD-SL pedals have once again been further optimised when it comes to power transfer efficiency. In order to make this happen, the pedal body has been lowered to get closer to the axle. This means no power is lost in the adjoining material, creating an optimal balance between low weight and maximum power transfer. The body rotates around a stainless steel axle with double bearings in each pedal. The width ensures optimal stability, while the steel plates improve durability. The spring tension is still adjustable, meaning you can set up how hard it is to (dis)engage the pedal.

Great Upgrade!

I was using SPD pedals with my MTB shoe's on my new road bike. I have 1,90m and notice my foot were very close to my cranks so I’ve ordered the +4mm longer version and that improved my ride confort and knee position! I’ve done a total of 400km with them so far and I’m very happy with this upgrade. Impressive quality pedal and great service from Mantel, very quick delivery to Portugal! Ordered on friday afternoon received on Tuesday!

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Confortable
  • Adjustable
  • Great relation price/quality
  • Good Fit

Cons

  • None that come to mind

Additional information

The Ultegra R8000 SPD-SL pedals are also available with a 4 mm longer axle. Convenient if you have larger shoes for example, as these might otherwise graze the crank or chain stays. They're also suitable if you have slightly wider hips or when you ride with your knees bent outwards slightly. The extra 4 mm are also comfortable if you're used to a wider Q-factor (distance between both cranks) from mountain biking.
