    Shimano PD-R540 Light Action Pedal

    My first introduction to a road pedal at a competitive price. Look and feel great and come complete with cleats. Would recommend them as a first step to using a road pedal.

    Great service as ever

    I bought another set of these for my second bike as they are good quality, fairly light and are quite forgiving with the adjustable release strength. Delivery and service from Tredz was excellent as ever.

    Great quality

    Really happy with these pedals. Dialled them them in perfectly. Would never think they were light action by the way they fell, only when un clipping do you notice how much easier they are. Superb value for money and in white perfect colour match too.

    Easy Operation first- timer Clip Pedals.

    My first set of clip pedals as new to road cycling though now in my late 60s. Was concerned about cleats releasing but they work fine and easy to unclip. They appear really good value with Tredz discounts though I had problem with first set which oozed lots grease out during first ride with them. Tredz replacing so hopefully won't happen again. Would have been 5* without technical issue. Tredz very helpful Technical Dept and cannot fault their service.

    unbeatable for the money

    bought these with a price match against wiggle, so £21.95. Feel solid and dependable, although not exactly light. Showing absolutely no signs of wear so far. Clipping in and out is easy and the adjustment screws are effective. Would have liked the choice of a 2 degree float cleat, but that's a minor detail for the price. Overall, a bargain

    Clipless Road Pedals Guide

     

    Clipless Road Pedals Guide

    Considered essential for road riding and events. Offering better support for improved efficiency, clipless road pedals feature a larger SPD-SL style cleat that is attached to your shoe.

    Three bolt cleats have a much larger surface area than two-bolt MTB clipless pedals, which means there is better power transfer for performance and speed on the road. Power is transferred on the up-stroke as well as the down-stroke.

    By aligning the cleat correctly your foot will be in the right place on the pedal. This optimises power from the leg thus maximising output from each pedal stroke. Injury can be prevented by locating the foot straight and avoiding any twisting or poor foot placement.

    • Increased efficiency
    • More comfort
    • Prevents injury
    • Specific shoes are essential
    • Shoes cannot be walked in
    • Mud/soil badly affects cleats and pedals

    Cleats and Float

    Cleats come with pedals though there are options and preferences involved. A cleat will have a certain amount of float. This is the amount of rotation the foot has before becoming unclipped. Novice or newcomers to clipless riding will prefer more float.

    Shimano make this easy by having colour coding

    Yellow cleats give 6° of float

    Yellow

    Yellow cleats give 6° of float. Best for novice clipless riders, you foot is free to twist a little before unclipping.

    Blue cleats allow 2° of float

    Blue

    Blue cleats allow 2° of float. For intermediate riders who are comfortable with being clipped in, a greater knowledge of cleat placement needs less float.

    Red cleats are fixed and give no float

    Red

    Red cleats are fixed and give no float. For racers and those who want the most power transfer.


    Three-bolt cleat/pedal compatibility table

    There are several brands of three-bolt road shoes and each will the right type of cleat fitted to your shoe. However, they all fit to three-bolt road shoes. See the table below for full pedal compatibility.
