Shimano SPD-SL PD R-540 - Black
@ Ask anyone who’s put in hours and hours on the bike about pedals, and they’ll likely make a single recommendation: Shimano. Shimano’s pedals seem to last forever, require little to no maintenance, and cleats are easy to find when it comes time to replace them. The PD-R540 SPD-SL Pedal seen here is among Shimano’s entry-level pedals, but you don’t sacrifice performance -it’s just a touch heavier than the Ultegra or Dura-Ace offerings.Clip into the Shimano PD-R540 SPD-SL Road Bike Pedals and simply ride — a large binding target makes clipping in fast and easy, and you can pedal with confidence and stability thanks to a wide pedal platform. On serious riding days, crank down on the adjustable cleat tension to ensure a solid, efficient ride, or loosen it a bit on calmer training days. Maintenance is virtually nonexistent, thanks to a sealed bearing cartridge axle unit that keeps dirt and grime. Features

    I’ll start off by stating that I am new to clipless pedals. I put these on my new road bike and have to say I am very impressed. When I got the bike I must have clipped in and out 100 times before I even ventured out with them and the payoff has been well worth it. Clipping in and out is a cinch. I like the SPD pedal as it had a relatively large area to clip in. Another interesting finding that these pedals weigh in at 330 grams. The Shimano Dura Ace SPD pedals that run near $300 weigh 278 grams. That is a 52 gram difference for almost $250 more money. That is 1.84 OUNCES. I am riding a $1700 bike not a $6000 bike so I can deal with an extra 1.84 ounces weight on my bike. I know it is not only about the weight but you get my point. That is why I think these pedals are the best bang for the buck as they are relatively inexpensive for what you get.

    This review is from: Shimano PD-R540 SPD-SL Road Pedals (Sports)
    I started cycling just a little over two years ago and over time I have progressed from platform pedals, to toe clips, and now to clip in pedals. I can say right from the start that I really like the feeling of being connected to the pedals on the upstroke and being able to power most of the way through the cycle. I could really hear the difference when I first put the pedals on the bike I use in my magnetic trainer. No matter how hard I tried to be smooth with platform pedals there was a definite pulsing in my pedal stroke. That seems to be greatly diminished with the use of these pedals telling me my pedal stroke is much smoother.

    Having gotten used to these pedals while on a trainer and having used toe clips, I haven’t had the misfortune of the sideways fall from forgetting to unclip…. yet, but in a sudden situation I can see it happening. In real life application they are very good and keep you feeling connected to the bike.

    The only fault I could find with these pedals is their balance. When you unclip a foot to stop at a stop sign or traffic light the pedal takes an almost vertical nose up position making it a bit difficult to clip back in. The clips have no grip of their own so if you misalign them you have hard plastic shoe clip on the metal pedal surface and the strong likelihood that your foot will slip off trying to get started before you can get clipped in. If you are going to use these anyplace where you may have to frequently unclip it may be a good idea to pay a few extra dollars for pedals that balance level. Or maybe learn to do a strong one pedal acceleration and then clip in.
