Shimano SPD SL Pedals

SL is Shimano's code for the road bike version of their SPD pedals.

  • With its single platform, an SPD-SL pedal is lighter weight than an SPD double-sided pedal.
  • Although it's single sided, and SPD-SL pedal is cleverly balanced so it's almost always right way up when you step on it.
  • Optimised for pedaling efficiency, the SPD-SL pedal has a wider platform to maximise foot support, power transfer and comfort.
  • The wider platform makes for wider bearing placement for uniform load distribution and longevity.
  • The SPD-SL Pedal's low-profile design places the foot closer to the pedal axle, again to maximise power output.
  • To help you picture the advantage of minimising the distance between foot and pedal axle, imagine how strange and detached it would feel to cycled in platform soles.
  • The pedals come supplied with a pair of Shimano SPD-SL cleats.
  • Using the same 3-bolt attachment, SPD-SL pedals work with any LOOK-compatible road bike shoe.
  • Originally designed for and proven by the pro peloton, SPD-SL shoes are a now a favourite with recreation, sportive, fitness and touring cyclists too.
