Purposeful carbon.

While other component manufacturers have jumped excitedly on the carbon fiber bandwagon, Shimano has remained committed to the use of metals in its components, only utilizing carbon where it felt the material offered a distinct benefit. Given the carbon composite body in the new Dura-Ace PD-9000 pedals, we’d have to say that Shimano found carbon a fitting substitute for its long-tenured alloy designs.

The biggest difference in this iteration is the cleat and how it interacts with the pedal. Dubbed the SMH-12, the cleat provides just one degree of float. Now, that’s certainly not much, but if your bike fit is as it should be, it will keep your leg in perfect alignment, and minimize strain on your knees and muscles.

  • Carbon composite body
  • SMH-12 cleat
  • Stainless steel top plate for durability
  • Adjustable release tension

Really like these

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Fairly new to cycling (about 4 years), Masters Cat 4 racer 5'10, 170#. Rode on Look Classics since the beginning but they wore out! Just got these, and did a century for my first ride. Not sure how my old bones would like the 1 deg of float but no aches - actually less than my old ones which were 9.5's. I didn't think I'd notice the wider platform / cleats, but it is very different feel to me for the better. Another thing I do notice is that they are very secure - I needed to loosen the tension up a bit to release without applying what i feel is too much pressure, since they are really meant to keep you feet attached.

Solid as a rock!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Came from Look Keo 2 max carbons which worked fine for many years, but these are definitely a step up. The precision and great mechanical feel of these make them a joy to use. The looks always had a little play, besides what was supposed to be there, but these are absolutely rock solid, no play, and they will keep your feet clipped in even under extreme force. They may not be the lightest, but I doubt there are pedals that functionally work as well as these. I could also tell the platform was larger and more comfortable than the Looks. Very pleased with the purchase and I'm sure I'll be using these for many years to come.

Great pedals

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Light, strong and with a good pair of shoes you will notice better pedaling power than with less expensive pedal on cheap shoes. Well worth the money.

Can I order these in the +4mm spindle length?

I assume that PD-9000 pedals come with a set of cleats, correct?

Best Answer

Yes, come with the blue cleats (SM-SH12 cleat). 2 degrees of float.

Hey RobP720163,
This pedal is compatible with the yellow cleats. You can actually use this pedal with any of the cleats that Shimano offers.
