POWER TRANSFER EFFICIENCY
SPD-SL is the road-specific refinement of the system. This pedal platform was designed specifically for the needs of world-class road racers. The seamless pedal-and-cleat interface provides a more efficient power transfer under the extreme pedaling loads encountered in race competitions.
EXTRA-WIDE PEDAL PLATFORM
The wide platform dramatically expands the contact point between the cleat and pedal. Top-level racers have reported that the pedal and cleat interface provides a very solid feeling when they stand on the pedals.
A RANGE OF CLEATS
Shimano offers three cleat options to meet every rider's needs: the fixed SM-SH10, the center-floating SM-SH11, and the new front-center-pivoting SM-SH12, which provides an excellent balance of stability and freedom. All of these nylon resin cleats feature non-slip rubber tips to enable easy walking.
