They keep getting better.

Shimano's Dura-Ace PD-9000 SPD pedals see continual improvements to keep them on the top rung of road pedal choices.

Carbon has its place, but it's not necessarily on every square inch of every component. Sure, we love the weight savings, but if there isn't a benefit as far as function and power transfer, then stainless steel or other alloys are perfectly acceptable. Shimano's Dura-Ace PD-9000 SPD pedals were constructed with exactly this theory in mind.

Instead of using carbon for the complete pedal system, Shimano placed it in areas where it has a measurable benefit. In this case it's the platform of the pedal. And this version features wider fit positioning adjustability which in turn translates to a more stable platform than previous versions. Additionally, Shimano paired the 9000 with new cleats which also lend to more efficient power transfer.

The new cleat retention system is centered on the front pivot. The SH12 Cleat limits your lateral float to /- one degree. This minimizes knee strain and ensures efficient power transfer to the drivetrain. The shortened degree of float, however, does not interfere with cleat retention. The spring-loaded tension adjustment at the rear of the pedals still dials in your exit tension.

For durability, you'll find that the pedals continue with the usage of a stainless steel top plate.

The Shimano Dura-Ace PD-9000 SPD-SL Pedals are available in the color Black and in one size. Please note that these pedals are recommended for use with the new SM-SH12 cleats.

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

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.

Is the stainless steel friction plate / body cover on the PD-9000 replaceable?

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 Responded on

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.
