The pedal market has been a little boring in recent times, with the market-leading brands set in their ways and offering little if any innovation. No company is more dominant in this space than Shimano, and its SPD-SL road pedals have hardly changed in recent years.
The SPD-SL click system from Shimano for road bikes has been consistently developed for maximum power transmission. The new Shimano 105 R7000 groupset brings a new generation of the 105 to the market.
In addition to its many similarities with the top groupsets, this upscale beginner group offers an enormously wide range of applications and race-proven performance. Shimano 105 has always been the entry point into the field of high-quality, race-inspired groupsets. With the new 105, this definition is now much broader and also includes a high degree of user-friendliness and customizability required for a wide range of applications.
The new PD-R7000 pedal made of carbon composite material with a wide stainless steel contact surface gives you great power transfer and doesn't have to hide behind high-end siblings like Dura-Ace or Ultegra. The wide bearing spacing allows an even load distribution.
