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. SPD-SL is a road pedal platform systematically engineered with Shimano footwear to transfer more power from your body to your bike.
The bonus with Shimano pedals is that the weight of the release mechanism means the pedals are always pivoted nose up, which makes locating the cleat into the pedal much easier. This softens the learning curve when it comes to getting used to clipless pedals for the first time.
