Why We Like The Shimano Dura-Ace PD-R9100 SPD SL Pedals
Put the final touch on your Shimano-equipped build with the Dura-Ace PD-R9100 SPD SL Pedals. As expected from anything bearing the Dura-Ace moniker, these pedals boast a race-worthy blend of light weight and stiff power transfer wrapped in a streamlined, injection molded carbon composite body. You can stomp on the pedals in anger with confidence that the wide platform will efficiently transfer watts and prevent uncomfortable hot spots over long, grueling miles. These pedals also stand out from the crowd with adjustable entry and release tension, which means you can crank down the tension for a weekend of bar-bashing criterium sprints or loosen it up for Saturday socials with the family.

Yes i bought the best. Yes i didnt have to. Yes i bunny hop my road bike and push the limits. But, its California and for some reason LA roads are crap. At any moment its full brake or full gas and over the obstacle. Why- Here is why. Im 5 11’ 194 - 187lbs normally. Heavier side of a roady for sure. I have used now Time (lasted a month. Yes i know i max out their weight rating) I have used Look keo max carbon and lasted 4 month before coming dangerously loose. So i went with the beefiest and nicest pedals i can find. Results. Non stop full gas fun. I have literally just given these pedals my all. Never EVER have i been more impressed and more in love. Smooth, silky, butter me up and add sprinkles cause i cant get enough. PS i run all SRAM but my Shimano pedals and i dont care at all. They are truly the best you can buy for durability. PSS the cleats are WAY better for me to walk around in. Much more confidence off the bike even if those moments are short

Dura Ace Pedal Review: Basically Perfect
- I've put it through the wringer
- Size Bought:
- standard axles

I got these for an upcoming Gravel Race, and have been training on them and testing shoes. Now most would choose an MTB style pedal for Gravel riding, and I agree that is usually the right choice. But: one can save significant weight between road shoes and pedals, and the power transfer and feeling of all your power going into the bike with road pedals is fantastic. For this race I know I will not need to unclip anywhere, so the road set up is appropriate. What is there to say about the Dura Ace pedals? They are perfect, low stack height, low profile, lightweight, easy to clip into, adjustable tension works well, and the bearing system in Dura Ace is fantastic-I suspect even the smooth bearings of these are an advantage over many other pedals. Of course for Gravel the carbon/plastic body might get a little beat up, but they are road pedals and that is my choice, not Shimano's! I do wish we would see so more interesting choices in pedals and shoes for Gravel racing, so far the perfect set up does not exist, and I switch back and forth between the lighter MTB shoes and the single sided PD-ES600 pedals and the road set up, depending on the course and conditions.
