Shimano 105 PD-5700C Carbon Road Pedals
Don't feel rich enough to keep up with the weight weenie arms race? When it comes to pedals, don't fret, as the Shimano 105 PD-5700C Carbon Road Pedals are the perfect means to lighten your bike without prohibitively lightening your wallet. While previous renditions of Shimano 105 pedals featured an aluminum construction, the PD-5700C version replaces metal with lightweight carbon fiber that correspondingly results in a sleek and svelte 285-gram weight for a pair. Weight-wise they're within striking distance of most higher-end pedals on the scale and they actually use much of the same technology as Shimano's more expensive Dura-Ace and Ultegra pedals. So what's the difference? The 105 pedals use a chromoly axle and bearings, instead of the titanium or ceramics found in Dura-Ace and Ultegra. If you're racing on a budget or just want to get up and over those hills a little faster then these are the pedals that belong on your bike.
  • Carbon fiber pedal body is lightweight and stiff
  • Large surface platform gives you plenty of area to push against for a more stable pedal stroke
  • Chromoly steel spindle is light, tough and stable
  • Steel wear plate protects the pedal from your cleats
  • Low maintenance sealed cartridge axle unit
  • Tension adjustment lets you control the release pressure
  • Includes SM-SH11 SPD-SL carbon pedal road cleats

      Solid pedal for the price. Easy to install, easy to adjust. Wide contruction coupled with the proper shoe makes it feel like there's a lot of surface area to push down and pull up on when pedalling.

          Comments about Shimano 105 PD-5700C Carbon Road Pedals:

          These pedals are great. I am coming from some very old SPD's and the difference was night and day for me. I didn't grease them enough on the first install and they creeked badly but that was my fault, greased them good and reinstalled and have been trouble free, silent and smooth for the last 1k miles. The only thing I see as a potential negative coming from spd to spd-sl is the cleat wear, I walk the bike over rocks twice on my normal route and the SL cleats wear out much faster than SPD cleats, but that's a known Con with All SL cleats, not just these... I'd still pick them over SPD any day, and these 105s are really a great value.

            Entry level price for a mid-level pedal. Got mine at a huge discount at Nashbar, able to upgrade to this pedal for less than next 2 lower models.

            Comments about Shimano 105 PD-5700C Carbon Road Pedals:

            I have had these pedals on my Cannondale Synapse for about 3 1/2 weeks and I really love them.

            The reason I bought them is because NashBar is AWESOME and has amazing sales almost every single day. I think these were 57% off when I purchased them.

            I have never used clip in pedals before so you can bet I fell over a few times while still attached to the bike which was embarrassing but you can bet I had the tension too tight. The pedals allow for some rotational movement at the ball of the foot so you don't mess up your knees as I was afraid they were broken when I noticed this but its normal. I always keep one foot a tad looser on the tension than the other foot for easy of stopping.

            They are easy to use, and easy to get in and out of.

            My only CON is that there is no flat area on the pedal to put your foot once you've taken your foot/feet out of the clips. I have Shimano R 088's and the plastic bottom on the shoe doesn't grip to the unclipped pedal at all. Something I can probably fix with some single sided padded tape or something at Home Depot but all that aside these are great pedals and I definitely recommend them to someone on a budget or someone looking to switch to clip ins.

              Comments about Shimano 105 PD-5700C Carbon Road Pedals:

              These pedals feel like half the weight as my old 550. Construction feels solid and it keeps my 0 degree cleats from lateral movement while pedaling compared to my old pedals. My only gripe is that they are slow to rotate to vertical for clipping in. I assume the bearings will loosen up over time.

                If you want cheaper carbon pedals with the SPD-SL this is your product. Virtually the same as the cheaper Ultegra or 105 product just more expensive and slightly lighter weight. I notice a different sound upon clip in. Other than that same as the allow versions. Carbon pedals to go with a carbon bike for a few bucks more, why not!

                    I have a wide foot and these felt much better than anything else at this price point. Lighter than the Looks they replaced. Have about 2K on them and they're doing great.
