Ultegra R8000 Pedals – vs – Ultegra 6800 Pedals

The Ultegra R8000 pedals are the updated version of the popular Ultegra 6800 pedals. Shimano have managed to lose 12 grams in weight while gaining a few millimetres in width. If you can handle the extra 12 grams in weight and the thought of not having the latest gear then the Ultegra 6800 pedals can still be had for 15 to 20% less than its successor.

Ultegra R8000 Pedals

Weighing in at a super-light 248 grams, these Ultegra R8000 Carbon SPD-SL Pedals have evolved from the 6800 series. Manufactured to mirror the stiffness of the R8000 Hollowtech II crankset, these carbon composite pedals also feature an extra-wide platform and reduced stack height to make sure that you transfer every watt through your transmission and into forward momentum.
