Magazine reviews for Shimano PD-R540 SPD SL Sport Pedals
Review from Cycling Plus
While the first SPD road pedal had a platform size which was similar to the Ritchey V4 this one has more in common with the classic Look design and the large platform makes it easier for the feet to 'find' entry without looking down. The cleats are very easy to secure tightly on the shoe using Allen headed screws and the tough, slip-proof material feels safer when walking on hard surfaces then the other hard-shoe systems...adjustments to entry and release tension are made using an Allen key and they are exceptionally smooth and easy to use.
Great value and solid performer
Review from Cycling Plus
These are Shimano's cheapest road-specific pedals, and the cleat that comes with them is uttlerly different from the small SPD's on mountain bike shoes you might use for touring. Because it doesn't need to be recessed - you're not walking far in road shoes - it can be much bigger. It looks just like a road cleat in fact. The pedal platform is bigger, which provides a solid platform for the foot without the 'hot spot' over the cleat you get with some systems. Entry and exit is confident and secure, with little fishing around with your foot to find the pedal, and there's a few degrees of float (you can adjust the release tension of course). The axle uses sealed cartridge bearings. Although heavier than Time's equivalent pedal or Look's, the R540 compares pretty well - both to those and to pricier Shimano pedals.
Good value, comfortable, secure road pedals. Why pay more?
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
These are designed to be used with cycling shoes only.
Whilst you physically could ride with runners on, it is not at all practical, comfortable or safe.
Note there is also the option to use an allen key to tighten them through the crank.
