Pro-level performance for the weight-conscious cyclist
Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 Pedals
The Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 Pedals offer top of the line features at a very attractive price point. Featuring a carbon composite body and stainless steel body plate, these pedals are both lightweight (just 248 grams per pair) and durable. The extra-wide platform increases the efficiency of power transfer while the wide bearing placement distributes load more evenly. In addition, the low stack height of 14.6 mm provides a stable platform for optimal pedaling.
These pedals also allow riders to adjust the entry and release tension. While the float will be determined by the cleat being used, riders can customize the entry and exit feel and make it easier or harder to clip in and out.
Pedals includes 6-degree float SPD-SL cleats for 3-bolt shoes and all the mounting hardware.
