Shimano shoes and pedals
For decades, SPD and SPD-SL have been setting standards in cycling shoes and pedals that others have difficulty reaching. Legendary systems engineering technologies and excellent manufacturing processes distinguish Shimano from the competition. Shoe experts work directly with pedal engineers to achieve an optimal shoe pedal interface that integrates the latest advances in cycling biomechanics, material design, and efficient, rugged SPD and SPD-SL systems.
Developed together. Tested together. Powerful together. SPD and SPD-SL shoe / pedal combination form an integrated power delivery platform based on the design philosophy of finding the optimal fit to meet the performance and comfort needs of each individual rider.
For the professional rider: optimum power transmission. For the enthusiast: Faster, longer journeys with more comfort. For the relaxed driver ... let's simply say that if everything works so well together, it's even more fun!
Shimano SPD - comfort on foot!
Shimano developed SPD to meet the needs of a fast-growing new group called "Mountain Bikers". By omitting the hooks and straps and by integrating the pedal and shoe sole into a common power transmission component, Shimano is changing the cycling world. This not only benefited the transmission of power, but also the rider's control in increasingly artistic cycling disciplines. Now there is no longer one universal MTB style, and accordingly there is no longer a single SPD pedal. The landscape is versatile: from fast XC races to steep, stony, wet and muddy trail rides. Shimano SPD pedals don't just keep up - they are a real driving force. The shoe pedal designs evolve to meet the needs of your personal riding style, but continue to offer proven reliability and sheer durability in the field.
