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.

light and durable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

can't go wrong with the shimano ultegra, stable, light and durable for a competitive price.

Nice Pedals

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great value for the price. Easy clip in/out.
Adjustment is very easy to perform.
These aren't the lightest pedals but they are more than enough for the average cyclist.

Great Pedals

    Great Price. Nice pedals, easy to use, clip in/out. Adjustment is easy to perform too. Great replacement for my old Look pedals.

    Great Pedal!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very happy with this purchase. Fantastic pedal at a great price!!

    Favorite Road Pedal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is one of the best road pedals out there. You can't beat the quality for the price. These are only slightly heavier than dura ace and perform just as well for a much cheaper price.

    Just upgraded from the 105 and I'm loving the ultegra. I've worn the blue shimano cleats for two years now and even in the 105's I've had much more play than desired. With the ultegra however, the cleats have a much smaller degree of float so your foot is more stable. I feel like every pedal stroke is producing just a bit more power now that my feet aren't moving everywhere. Price point is great as usual for the ultegra line.

    Excellent quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These pedals are really good, i would say that if you are not a pro biker, there is no reason on going to the dura ace, unless you want to spend more money, cleat mechanism work really well, I started with the lightest tension and is really easy to pull your feet out, ill probaly increase the tension after getting more used to cleats

    can't go wrong with these pedals

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Quality you can expect from Shimano products. These pedals aren't the lightest out there, but they set a pretty solid standard if you are looking for a pedal that will offer smooth, dependable use for a long period of time.

    Solid upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Got these pedals to replace my 3 year old shimano 105 heavy clunker pedals and I dig the new ultegras. Super light and a much wider platform than my old pedals. I had to adjust my cleats slightly after a couple rides to account for the small amount of float these pedals offer but once you get it all dialed in, great pedals. I've already noticed more power transfer from foot to pedal just based on the big platform. Definitely recommend.

    Great pedals! Smooth clip-in.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love the quality of these. Good value and very durable.

    First set of clip in/clipless pedals...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    SPD, clipless, clipped, SPD SL, flats, cleats, ABCDEFG....

    It was all a bunch of brain damage to me. I started cycling back in April of 2016 and quickly fell in love with riding. One for the sheer leisure of riding and two for the fitness aspects of it. I started on MTB and just recently purchased a roadie. I have done enough reading and research to know that the differences between flats and clipless pedals on MTB could be called negligible (notice I say COULD). However, my reading and research has led me to believe that the same does not apply to road bikes. A clipless pedal is a necessity. SO, when I bought the road bike I spent some time researching pedals and I kept coming back to these Shimano cleat style pedals.

    I was a little leery at first about using these type of pedals because I had heard the stories of friends falling over at stop lights because they forgot that they were clipped in. God forbid I suffer a little public humiliation in front a bunch of strangers. Anyway, I put these puppies on the bike and attached the yellow cleats that came with the pedals. Before I snapped in, I backed the tension out on the pedals for the clipping system. I balanced in the driveway for 10 minutes or so just snapping in and snapping out. My neighbors must think I am a lunatic I thought. It took a little while to get use to the feeling but I got to the point where I felt somewhat comfortable so off I went to try them out on the road. I still remember the first stop light that I came to and how nervous I felt. I disengaged really early and just let my foot hover above the ground as I coasted to the light. When it turned green, I lined the cleat up with the pedal and put a little weight on it and it snapped in rather easily. There is no mistaking when you have been snapped in. Its loud and solid. I now have some miles on these pedals and I am ready to increase the tension on the mechanism. I would recommend these pedals to anybody who is new to road biking (or experienced). They are light, well built and the clip in mechanism is great. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair.

    Light and functional

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is my first road pedals, so it will take some time to adjust to these style of cleats. My first impression is these are manufactured to the high level of quality I've come to expect from Shimano. Solid fit and finish. The only caution I can mention is for lighter riders the spring tension is strong even after full loose adjustment. I hope that will change with use.

    Easy, light and comfy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These pedals are great - they are easy, light and comfy as my title says. I like the matte finish, as they go with my carbon Scott cr1 pro pretty nicely. they provide a nice solid base and feel great when pumping up some hills. I have had some other pedals that creaked and made all sorts of clicking noises... drives me crazy! These are super smooth though.

    No Fuss Pedals

      The Ultegra pedals have a solid platform, great feel, and smooth bearings. With all metal and carbon fiber construction these pedals look as good as they perform. The engagement is positive with a reassuring click in and out so there's no guessing about whether or not you're actually connected. I prefer the blue cleats, minimal play, no slop.

      No-nonsense pedals

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great pedals, work great, easy to use. In fact it's my second pair of ultegra carbon pedals ( for my second bike!). At this price, nothing beats those pedals

      Love them

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great product. Great vendor (Competitive Cyclist). I've notice squeaking with other riders who have other brands, like Look. No noise with Shimano.

      Solid platform. Love them

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been riding a Look Keo after getting back into cycling "half ass" for several years and am now back into it much more seriously (3500 miles with 3.5 months to go). I bought Looks because hey I bought a set in 1985. What a night and day difference this pedal makes from that. The pedal platform feels wider and just such a solid transfer of power. I have to admit I also just bought the Shimano R231 shoes so that combination is like nothing I have ever had before. Love it. Much easier to clip in at the traffic lights than the Looks.

      Solid platform. Love them
      Unanswered Question

      Are these pedals as easy to clip out of as the light action spd-sl's?
