    Lightweight and ultra-efficient.

    Featuring a carbon composite body for serious weight savings and high levels of rigidity, the Shimano Ultegra PD-6800 SPD-SL Pedals are a great choice for the competitive cyclist and casual, everyday rider alike. The pedal's wide platform enables high levels of energy transfer, ensuring maximum efficiency on the road. Wide bearing placement maintains a uniform load distribution for stability.

    Its short carbon fibers make it just a touch heavier than Shimano's featherweight PD-6900, yet it offers a similar level of performance without the sticker shock. They retain the same satisfying retention and release mechanism of SPD-SL pedals for easy use, and a stainless steel cover protects the pedal's carbon body from abrasion while reducing flex for maximum efficiency.

    No Fuss Pedals

      The Ultegra pedals have a solid platform, great feel, and smooth bearings. With all metal and carbon fiber construction these pedals look as good as they perform. The engagement is positive with a reassuring click in and out so there's no guessing about whether or not you're actually connected. I prefer the blue cleats, minimal play, no slop.

      Solid platform. Love them

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been riding a Look Keo after getting back into cycling "half ass" for several years and am now back into it much more seriously (3500 miles with 3.5 months to go). I bought Looks because hey I bought a set in 1985. What a night and day difference this pedal makes from that. The pedal platform feels wider and just such a solid transfer of power. I have to admit I also just bought the Shimano R231 shoes so that combination is like nothing I have ever had before. Love it. Much easier to clip in at the traffic lights than the Looks.

      Solid platform. Love them

      Perfect Pedal

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Ultegra line of Shimano parts are usually the best bang for the buck and these are no exception. I used these and the axle conversion kit from Garmin to swap the body for the Vector pedals. These are much, much better than the LOOK/ACR system that came on them originally

      Perfect Pedal

      Great for beginners

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've never used pedals like this before and they were so easy to use. It took me somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 minutes to learn to use these and get used to them. Once riding, they feel incredibly secure and solid and I really like them.

      Do these pedals settle in the vertical position with the back of the pedal down after you un-clip? My only issue with the 105s is that they do not settle this way, so I'm always looking down to clip back in. I'd rather not have to flip the pedal over when restarting at an intersection or while in traffic.

      Don't forget to buy cleat covers

        Shimano Ultegra pedals are great (at any price). Light, wide platform, super precision-made, and rock solid reliability. They are I think, by far, the best value in road pedals in the world.

        At this price, they are an insane value.

        But don't forget to buy Shimano cleat covers also (part# SH45). The soft yellow rubber "pontoons" on Shimano SPD cleats wear out pretty fast if you walk around without wearing cleat covers. Which one really shouldn't do, but sometimes we have to (e.g., group ride coffee stop).

        Solution: Shimano cleat covers avail online for about $18 (or less).

        Have these on 2 bikes

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        So I have these pedals on both my wife's and my bike. The wife's pair is about two years old and mine just a couple weeks. Both have not disappointed and I really don't think twice about them. Clipping into the pedals seems very easy, but I'm also comparing it to my mountain bike pedals which seem a little more difficult. I also purchased a back of pair of cleats in the case the either of ours needs to be replaced. http://www.competitivecyclist.com/shimano-spd-sl-cleat-sets

        Great Pedals!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        So, I finally, after about 8 years on the Look Keo Ti pedals, decided to try something new. These pedals are not only a value, but the the larger platform offers a lot of stability, and they are really well balanced (easy to get in an out after a stop...or at the start of a crit). In all, in terms of value and performance, these pedals are an awesome buy!

        Shimano just keeps getting better!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I decided to replace my 105 pedals after 12,000 miles of trouble free service. I had planned to replace with the new carbon 105 but could not believe my good fortune-CC has the Ultegra's on sale for about fifteen bucks less that the 105's. So, instant decision to upgrade! Like most of Shimano components they spend the research and engineering funds on the Dura-Ace line the the benefits trickle down to Ultegra, 105, etc. These are as smooth as a Dura-Ace set I rode a couple of years ago-so why would you spend almost $80 more for the Dura-Ace-NO!-buy these and put the $80 toward new wheels where it would really make a difference. They are within 35 grams (1.2 ounces) of the Dura-Ace which is insignificant to most amateur cyclists. Buy these!!

        Shimano just keeps getting better!

        A great pedal!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I had a pair of 6700s prior to the 6800s. I ditched the 6700s to try the Look Keo carbon blade. The Looks, look cool, have a great platform and clip out easily but clipping in is another issue. They don't point up when you're not clipped in which makes getting back in the pedal difficult.

        So, I scrapped 'em in favor for the new carbon Ultegra pedal and am glad I did! Clip in and out is very easy, very stable platform, no hot spots and lightweight. What more can you ask for!

        A dramatic improvement over toe cages

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

        I finally made the change to clipless pedals and I'm glad I did. The energy transfer is amazing, allowing me to go longer and more efficiently. I went straight for carbon figuring I could bring them with me should I ever upgrade my bike, so I can't comment on the differences between aluminum and other materials in comparison. Clipping in and out took a bit of practice and the tension needed some loosening for me to not feel glued to the bike, but I can see myself tightening it back up later as I become more experienced.



        You'll need an 8 mm allen wrench to tighten these as opposed to a 15 mm pedal wrench. I hand tightened it with my Alien II multi tool because I don't have a torque wrench (the pedals suggest tightening to 10 Nm). Hopefully it's enough.

        Is this the price for the pair of pedals or do I need to purchase two?

        Do these come with cleats? The 105s do, but I'm not seeing whether they are included or not with this pedal.

        Two questions:

        1. How much do these weigh?
        2. What year were they made?

        I thought the float comes from which cleats I have, Shimano's red vs yellow, not which pedals. If I match red cleats with these pedals, will the degree of float be different than if I used the Dura-Ace pedals? Thx.

        So the difference between the 6700 and...

        So the difference between the 6700 and these is weight? The 6700 were aluminum and these have carbon? Is ride quality identical, the only difference being weight? Hopefully someone having used both can fill me in. Thanks.
