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.

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.

Good purchase

This pedals is highly revommended for any cycling enthusiasts, high quality carbon fiber with a wide platform, you can expect a great power transfer everytime you push the pedals. Its a great investment or upgrade, its Ultegra after all. I bought mine at Mantel.com the cheapest you can find online and ships to Ireland in no time. Highly recommended.

Very good product

I had a cheaper group of shimano pedals and replaced it with this Ultegra ones, mostly because I wanted a lighter pedal and more durable. The only thing I noticed was the wider platform that allowed a better support while pedalling. The quality and weight are very impressive and the price was unbeatable.

First Class

Fantastic pedals and a first class service from the guys at Mantel. I had spent years cycling road bikes with SPD pedals under the myth they are easier to get your feet out of. This year I was determined to try SL pedals for myself. This is my second set, asi have popped them on both road bikes. The confidence they have given me through the larger contact area is phenomenal. They are beautifully made, extremely light, and pretty okay to get out of.

Great performance pedal for the price

I have used Shimano pedals for many years and these new Ultegra R8000 are the best by far. The pedals are well balanced so a secure clip in first time, every time, no more looking down to see the position of the pedal. Comfortable on long rides

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.
