What is the difference between Ultegra and Dura-Ace pedals?

The main difference between Shimano’s 105, Ultegra and Dura-Ace pedals is the weight. The top-end Dura-Ace pedals have an injection modeled carbon-composite body. Ultegra pedals are only slightly heavier at 248 g with the 105 pedals coming in at 265 g. The Dura-Ace pedals also have a slightly lower stack.

How long do SPD SL pedals last?

If you’re careful you don’t need the Shimano tool, just some grease. I’ve had SPD pedals that lasted 8yrs. Others gave up after 2-3yrs. That’s almost entirely offroad, but with less mileage (maybe 3k per year).

Do I need longer pedal axle?

Longer pedal spindles might be recommended. This rider’s stance width is too wide; the knees are tracking to the inside of the pedals. Shorter pedal spindles might be recommended. Proper stance width keeps knees happy and power transfer efficient, no matter the clipless or platform pedal you’re spinning.

How long do Ultegra pedals last?

5 years, not a squeak. I’ve been using 105, ultegra and DA spd for years on all my bikes, some of them pretty old, maybe 10 yrs or so. Mine are old enough they have the little replaceable plastic contact area on the pedal.

When should I replace my SPD-SL pedals?

The SPD-SL cleat is essentially shaped like a triangle, and there’s a rubber pad on each “corner” that’s a different color from the hard plastic cleat body. When any of these three pads are worn through to the point where you can see the plastic, it’s time to replace them.

Can you service Shimano SPD-SL pedals?

Even when left alone, Shimano SPD pedals will last seemingly indefinitely. However, servicing Shimano pedals is ludicrously easy, and performing this super quick, five minute pedal refresh will ensure they keep spinning smoothly for years to come.

How often should you replace SPD pedals?

Speedplay recommends replacing your cleats every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but as mentioned, it depends on your riding style, conditions and how much you walk around in them.
