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 SL - Efficient power transmission
SPD-SL is the further development of the SPD system especially designed for racing bikes. This pedal platform was developed specifically for the needs of world class road racers. The seamless interface between pedal and cleat provides more effective power transmission under the extreme pedal loads encountered in competitive conditions.
