Pedal Down.

The Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 Pedals borrows heavily from the flagship Dura-Ace PD-9100 to deliver pro-level performance for the weight-conscious cycling enthusiast. The extra-wide, lightweight, carbon composite platform offers a huge target for clipping in, so rolling away from red lights and the start of a crit are hassle-free affairs. The large body also provides more efficient power transfer and distributes pressure better so long days in the saddle aren't met with hot spots on your feet. The low profile design increases road clearance for improved confidence when leaning through the turns and getting back on the gas.

Durable, integrated, stainless steel body plates help reduce flex, wear to the pedal body, and provide a smooth surface for the cleats, promoting smooth float. The wide bearing placement offers stable and uniform load distribution so bearings last longer and roll smoother. The adjustable entry and release tension let you customize the settings for a casual easy in-and-out to a vice like grab needed for track racers or sprinters.

The 10 mm body height from the axle center to cleat contact surface lowers the stack height 0.7mm versus the 6800's and the weight has dropped to 248 grams. Pedals includes 6-degree float SPD-SL cleats for 3-bolt shoes and all the mounting hardware.

Very Satisfied

    Replaced Speedplay Zero pedals - been using 3 years. There is a night and day difference with the the Ultegra pedals. Wish I had bought the Ultegra from the start --- very east to clip in and out.

    If Only...

    These are an upgrade from my SPD pair and if only I had upgraded earlier I'd have this appreciation for road cycling sooner. The pedal to cleat contact is secure and power transfer with triangle pedal system is remarkably smoother and noticeable. If only the damn things hung right side down instead of up clicking in would have been less of a hazard. Otherwise a sold product.

    Secure

    Swapped out my broken Speedplays for these. They are way more secure and the pedal to cleat contact area feels great.

    Nice set of Pedals

    Nice set of pedals for a great price. Works extremely well on my new bike purchased. Recommended.

    Sweet click in.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    As a first time road bike rider I was little scared of clipping in to my bike. I asked around and everyone said these were the pedals to get. I practiced on a trainer for the first few days clipping in and out until I felt comfortable on the bike. These peddles are great and can take a beating. I wiped out on my BikeMS ride and they came out with just a couple of scratches and still look great. I can't believe I didn't clip in sooner.

    Unanswered Question

    Do you have the ones with 4mm longer spindles?

    PD trumps the SPD

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For the last couple years I stuck with the Shimano SPD pedals that came with my German road bike. I feel like a moron for not changing these out earlier. The R8000's transfer the power much better with the larger base. It also makes for a much more comfortable ride. You can change the tension of how tight you want to be locked in as well. I've purchased these pedals for my trainer bike and road racer. Very satisfied and priced right!

    Nice upgrade

      I was riding an older set of 105 pedals, these pedals are much lighter. The platform is nice and wide, the cleats are durable, and the price was great.

      Excellent

      These are awesome pedals for the price

      Great price and service

        Order came in on time and pedals work great .....competitive cyclist has great price and service...... looking forward to my next order with them

        Noticeably lighter, it's a tight pedal

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I hope this loosens up with time, it's REALLY tight clipping in and out right now though! I love how light it is, it's nearly as light as Shimano's most expensive pedal but much cheaper. It feels like a really good-quality pedal.

        You should be able to adjust the entry and release tension. It's usually an easy adjustment with a small hex wrench.

        Should have done it sooner

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Usual Ultegra quality. That is, about the same as DA but a trifle heavier. The only surprise was that I hadn't realized how worn the old set was until I put on the new and every thing was nice and tight smooth.
