When faced with the choice between performance and comfort, we don't always have the option to choose both on equal footing. But you can do just that with the Shimano Dura-Ace PD-9000 +4mm SPD SL Pedals. They feature adjustable fit positioning and a wide carbon platform that reduces the potential for hot spots by distributing pressure over a wider area and provides a solid transition of power from cleat to pedal.
The PD-9000s come with an extra 4mm of spindle length compared to standard pedals for those riders who are looking for a wider Q-factor and are compatible with Shimano SM-SH12 cleats.

Absolutely the Perfect Platform
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've tried Look (missed clips), Speedplay (didn't like the clip-in) and mostly used SPD because of NYC - walking, stopping, etc.
However I changed my racing bike from Look to DA +4mm and can't say enough good things about it. Easy to clip-in. Great support. Perfect if your feet have some splay and you would otherwise need washers.
You can crank up the watts without any fear of hot shoe, knee or ankle stress etc. I love this pedal. There. I said it. I mean it.
Perfect pedal for road
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great pedal all-around. Easy entry/exit, holds perfectly, very stable under the foot and provides good lateral support to the shoe. Quality is as expected of Dura-Ace, that is, perfect as far as I can tell. Finish and feel are great. No reservations about recommending these to anyone for roadie-type use.
DA DP-9000 +4
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
After 20,000mi on my Seven with various Shimano SPD mountain pedals, I've finally upgraded to road pedals. Several people working at different LBSs swore by the DA pedals and they do not disappoint. At 6'4", I got the +4 pedals to replace washers that a prior fitter installed as spacers. I previously used mountain pedals because I live in downtown Chicago, and stops are frequent, so I perceived a lack of convenience with the single-sided entry of Shimano road pedals. I've quickly made the transition and am very impressed by the solid feeling of the DA pedals (combined with SIDI Wire shoes) after only 200mi. It's hard to speak with any authority about "climbing" in Chicago, but the few modest hills somehow seem easier with the DA pedals, and I've remained confidently locked in no matter how hard I sprint or climb -- even though I'm still on the loosest setting. Engagement with the cleat is positive, and exit from the pedal is easy. Indeed, they're as silky smooth as you'd expect for any Dura-Ace component. And despite my concerns, they're not too difficult to walk in, although carrying my bike down a flight of stairs was scary the first time; the cleats have 3 rubber-tipped contact points to reduce potential for slippage, but it's unclear those will last very long.
In comparison to my old SPDs, however, I suggest caution with fit...
The pedals shipped with blue cleats, and my initial efforts at cleat placement were close-but-not-quite. Indeed, I was concerned about the potential for developing an injury with my knees seeming to track a little strangely, so I scheduled a cleat fitting at a nearby shop. Not only did the fitter dial in things perfectly, but he also swapped out the blue cleats for yellow (more float). I feel the set up is now perfect, as I have both a solid interface for efficient transfer while also having enough wiggle room to insure I don't develop any injuries. Even after long rides, I feel better than I did my previous set up. Good luck!
I am currently using the 6800 spd-sl pedal. I'm getting a new bike and am thinking about the 9000. I realize there is a new cleat for the 9000 but I am wondering if the old cleat is compatible?
The DA-9000 pedals support a new cleat with 1-degree float, the Shimano SM-SH12 cleats. The PD-9000 will work with the older cleat designs, and I understand the new SH-12 cleat will work with the older pedals too.
Hi, my Look KEO Blade pedal cracked along the spindle and I'm thinking of replacing those with the DA's. Should the warranty be 3 years instead of the posted 1 year? Also, are these compatible with Look KEO blade cleats. Thank you.
All Shimano Dura-ace and XTR components have a 3 year Manufacturer Warranty warranty. The look keo blade cleats are not compatible with these pedals. These pedals do come with a set of cleats. If you have any other questions you can contact me at email@example.com
