With the same construction as Dura-Ace and Ultegra pedals, the new 105 SPD SLs feed off proven technology.
The main change to the pedal body is a wider platform, to equal the stability and power transfer of pedals higher up the range, and bring the SPD SL up to date with the 10-speed groupset.
The cleat plates are stainless steel, so are likely to be pretty durable, and sealed-cartridge bearings keep maintenance to a minimum. Release tension can be easily adjusted to suit your preferences, and weight is 322g for a set.
Priced at £49.99, this pedal should be good for many miles of reliable service.
