Description

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.

  • A best-in-class pedal for road racing specialists
  • Carbon composite body balances light weight and stiffness
  • Stainless steel body plate increases durability
  • Wide platform minimizes hot spots and inspires confidence
  • Customize your pedal feel with adjustable entry and release tension

Not Sure Why I Doubted Shimano

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

When I got into road cycling a few years ago. I bought into the idea of Speedplay pedals. They worked well enough for the initial intent. Fast forward to early 2020 when gyms closed down and the wife and I got a spin bike. I convinced her to try Speedplay pedals since that is what I had on my road bike and I wanted to be able to use my shoes for both. That turned out to be a hard “no” from her. She couldn’t stand the floaty feeling and rotation. So on a quest to find my next pedals I landed on Shimano. The spin bike has some Ultegra pedals, which is overkill, but they were a good deal. The real victory is that with The blue cleats the wife is happy on the spin bike and I discovered a pedal I love on my road bike. The platform feels super secure and stable. A little more difficult to get in and out of than Speedplay, but that is forgotten once you start turning the cranks.

Buh-Bye Speedplay

It's hard to explain what makes this a great pedal without contrasting it with the Speedplay pedals I inexplicably rode for the last several years. The 9100 SPD-SL provides a super-stable platform that feels wide and makes you feel grounded to the pedal/bike. It doesn't feel like you are standing on a lollipop. The cleats are about 1/3 the price of Speedplay. The ONE-piece cleat attaches to your shoe with only 3 bolts (versus a Speedplay THREE-piece cleat that requires 7 bolts). The one-piece cleat design is also more walkable, and has no bulky plastic cover (that traps moisture and causes metal parts to rust). In fact, there are no metal cleat parts to rust out in the first place. The cleat does not require ANY lubrication. EVER. I also don't need to lube the pedals with a messy grease gun that squirts more grease out the side than into the pedal body. When clipped in, your foot remains stable, without rocking around in 6 degrees of freedom - that stability actually solved a rubbing issue between my toes and shoe that I only realize in hindsight was being caused by the wobbly Speedplay interface. The mechanism is very smooth and reliable and requires far less maintenance. They are very easy to "clip in" to.

Superior Shimano quality.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Super light weight without feeling like you have to be cautious. Amazing they can be that light weight and feel so solid.

>Rating:

Do they come with cleats?

Yes. They come with blue SPD-SL cleats. 1 degree float.

They come with the blue 1° float cleats. If you are used to the yellow 6° they feel different.

Great

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've had these for awhile. Zero issues after a year + of riding these. I feel like I clip in faster than my previous Look pedals. The cleats also seem to be far easier to walk on compared to my old Look cleats. Totally happy with these.

Nice and light.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Great pedals. Unfortunately they will start clicking after about a year and need to be taken apart and serviced. It's been a fairly well documented problem with the 9100 pedals; feel free to look it up. Dunno if they just lube them improperly or what, but there are tons of videos on the web documenting the problem and how to service them. I've gone back to using older ultegra pedals which have yet to produce a clicking sound, time will tell. Otherwise solid pedals. Very light. Just wish the bearings where more reliable. Had over 7000 miles on them when it started clicking, so it's not like they have this problem out of the box, but it seems like a fairly common problem that will eventually manifest. Luckily they are not that difficult to service.

I currently have PD-R540-LA pedals. Will the cleats from these work on the Dura Ace PD-R9100 SPD SL pedals?

Hey Jonathan, Yes, those are going to work as long as they are Shimano SPD road cleats. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me directly at mconn@competitivecyclist.com

Solid feel and performance

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I recently made the move from LOOK to Shimano pedals. I have nothing against LOOK and continue to support them and like many of their products (indeed, I still love the feel and tactile click-in of my 20-year-old LOOK pedals). However, I recently got a new build and decided to go with Shimano for a number of reasons, but namely because I'm on the tall side at 6'3" and 195 lbs / 90 kg, with a size 13 foot, so I wanted something with a wider platform to give me stability when I'm sprinting or climbing in standing position. I've been quite pleased with the performance of these pedals and I also love the fact that they offer a solid click in feel and sound. After using them for 6 or 7 rides, I would say that I can click in without looking down about 75% of the time so far, and I expect that to go up to 90%+ once I have more rides in and have the muscle memory of where my new cleats are.

Yes, they come with 1 degree float blue cleats.

Overdue Upgrade

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Long overdue upgrade from my vintage Time Crterium clipless pedals. Really like the weight reduction and the release tension adjustability. I like the wider platform and the blue cleat for positive feedback. Now it’s time to start looking at a carbon frame to replace my vintage Guerchotti.

>Rating:

Pretty sure the weight on these is 228g to 230g, you guys have them listed as 310g for weight? Can somebody please check this (Bueller, Bueller...another customer asked this same question in July...)

Hey Michael! That weight includes the cleats. The weight of the pedals alone is about 230g. Feel free to shoot me an email at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any questions!

Is the actual weight of this item 310g? It will be wrong.

Dura Ace Pd R9100 pedals and Blue cleats

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I swapped early 2000's ultegra pedals for these. The 9100 pedals are quite a bit lighter and have a slightly wider platform for a more solid feel under foot. I tried the blue cleats for the first time last night in a Zwift race and I found that I could stand out of the saddle a lot easier and put out more wattage. They felt a lot more solid under foot, I have always used the yellow with the most float. I now found that the yellow was like being on a skating rink when out of the saddle compared to the blue with less float. I am now a convert to the blue cleats.

If you think blue cleats are stable, try the red cleats. Shimano advertises as "0" degree float but it actually has some play. Quite a big difference as how the foot is planted from yellow -> blue -> red.

>Rating:

hello there. I have the yellow shimano cleats from my old pedals. Could i use them on these as well as i prefer a bit of float?

yep, i do it all the time. I actually prefer the yellow cleats to the blue ones that come with the DA pedals as there is almost no float with the blue. Wish Shimano would go back to the yellows for DA like in the past.

>Rating:

Is this compatible with Shimano Ultegra 6800 crankset?

Yes.

>Rating:

Is this compatible with SRAM Red E Tap cranksets?

Yes.

Yes.

>Rating:

Is the Shimano pedal similar to Look in terms of clipping in and clipping out? Also, is it a solid feel/sound like Look?

Clipping in and out is identical to the Look pedals. If anything, the Shimanos are even more solid feeling/sounding than the Looks.

>Rating: 5

Love the platform

I love how large these pedals feel under foot. switched for the look keo pedal and these are very nice.

Do they come with cleats? If not, are there any at competitive cyclist? I don't see the matching cleats.

These do come with cleats.
