A new look.

Unless you've been meditating in a cave for the past couple of years, you've most likely caught wind that Shimano created a carbon fiber Ultegra pedal. Yes, the PD-6700 carbon pedals were 60 grams lighter than their aluminum counterparts, and they were moving closer and closer to resembling a discounted Dura-Ace iteration. Needless to say, they were widely celebrated. For this reason, Shimano opted to utilize the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' strategy for the new Ultegra PD-6800 SPD-SL Pedals.

Even while these come within 35 grams (per pair) of the Dura-Ace 9000 pedals, Shimano has ensured that the pedals still deliver the same blissful retention and instant release that we've grown accustomed to from SPD-SL pedals. In fact, the retention mechanism hasn't changed at all. The retention setting is still adjustable by wrench from the aft portion of the pedal.

As for the carbon pedal body, the 6800 design differs from 9000 through its use of short carbon fibers instead of Dura-Ace's long carbon fibers. Essentially, this is where the extra weight comes from. Additionally, the carbon has been molded with a machined aluminum sleeve that houses the two bearings in each pedal. The whole assembly spins on a stainless steel spindle, and the new pedals retain the replaceable stainless steel wear plate that sits atop the pedal body. Additionally, it supports the SPD-SL cleat for maximum lateral stability, while allowing a hard surface for your cleat to float against -- +/- three degrees.

The Shimano Ultegra PD-6800 SPD-SL Pedals come with a set of SM-SH11 floating cleats (the ones with the Yellow wear tabs) and all of the necessary mounting hardware. The float is three degrees in either direction. The stack height is 13.7mm. And as always, the retention preload is adjustable to allow you to dial in the perfect entry and release tension.

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

Hey Mack,

These are priced as a pair! Give a shout if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help! Cheers, Connor

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.

One with the bike! Thanks for the review!

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.

Jeffrey, about 98% of the time they do. Occasionally I need to look down to give them a nudge, but I'm someone who's never used pedals like this before and I have an incredibly easy time clipping back into them.

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

Hey Christian, yes they do. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any other questions. 1-800-409-4502 x 4775 or

Noticeable upgrade

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Upgraded to these from shimano R540s. These feel sturdier like more power is being transferred. Mine came in 3 grams lighter than advertised too! Sweet value here love em.

Two questions:

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

Hey Chris,

These weight 260 grams a pair. We received this order from Shimano in July of 2015. So I would think a safe estimate would be about a year from July of 2015.

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).

    best pedal on the market

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This gets my endorsement of absolute best pedal on the market. I've put this thing through thick and thin and it always comes back for more. Love this pedal.

    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.

    The pedals across the Shimano line are the same. I have bikes with Dura Ace, Ultegra, and 105. All are identical with my red cleats, (zero float).

    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.

    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!
