Shimano 105 pedals have the look and feel of the pricier Ultegra and Dura-Ace, with a similar profile to their carbon bodies, but a slightly less finished appearance. All use the same Shimano cleats, with yellow, blue and red options providing progressively less float.
Shimano 105 might be the first tier in the brand's performance groupset offering, but that doesn't mean that Shimano has skimped on quality, particularly with the internals which are super durable and will run for years with minimal maintenance. When they do need a lube or bearing replacement, they're easily serviceable too.
When we reviewed the Shimano 105 pedals, we highlighted their stable platform and easy adjustment of release tension to suit your preferences and riding needs. Like Shimano's pricier pedals, they screw in and out with an 8mm hex wrench, giving their spindles a clean look without pedal flats.
At only 17 grams heavier per pair than the claimed weight of Ultegra pedals (although we measured the difference as just 10g) and 37g more than Dura-Ace pedals, Shimano 105 pedals aren't going to weigh you down and will save you a nice amount of cash as well.
