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.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Smooth bearings and secure pedal to cleat engagement. Switched to SPD from Speedplay due to the excessive play, the need for regular maintenance, and the nuisance of sticks, mud, and rocks clogging up the cleats from walking around to take nature breaks. Not going back to Speedplay for sure.

Solid pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I came from speed play, I just never felt secure on those, but the contact feels rock solid on Shimano! Been using mine for about 2 years and couldn't be happier.

Happy I switched from Look

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Look has been my go to pedal since I got into riding about 6 years ago. I've done a few races and many rides on these Shimano pedals over the past month and think they are superior to Look.

Based on what I've heard from others and my own experience with Shimano products, these will likely hold up much better than all my Look pedals did. It would take 6 month of riding for Look pedals to start developing undesirable play and wear.

I did try speedplay last year, but they just didn't work out for me and I went back to Look. If you are having frustrations with your Look pedals, I'd suggest trying out Shimano. This is a superior pedal, IMO!

Awesome pedals

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased these pedals here at Competitive and they are great, found them cheaper online at a bike shop on sale, of course, they gave me credit. You cannot beat the customer service here at Competitive Cyclist! Now the way to install these is to go to your local Home Depot and get yourself a 3/8 in. Drive 8 mm Hex Bit Socket and certainly this tool is extremely handy for uninstalling all pedals with an 8mm or 6mm allen wrench. Here is the link to this $1.97 cent lifsaver.
Happy riding!

Dura Ace pedals

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the Ultegra version of this pedal for the past 2 years, so I thought I would give these a try. After 1 month of use, I can't really say I can tell the difference...typical Shimano quality product!

Don't forget to buy cleat covers

    Shimano Dura-Ace pedals are awesome; arguably the best in the sport. The reviews here (and everywhere else) are correct.

    But don't forget to buy Shimano cleat covers also (part# SH45). The soft blue, red, or yellow rubber "pontoons" on Shimano SPD cleats wear out pretty fast if you walk around without wearing cleat covers. Which we 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).

    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.

    Best Answer

    Hey RobP720163,

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