DuraAce PD-7900

Shimano’s latest pedal offering has arrived – the new Dura Ace PD-7900 in carbon composite.  Published weight is 248 grams per pair (124 g. each) which officially enters Shimano into the light-weight pedal game.  This puts the PD-7900 pedal and cleat within 2 or 3 grams of a Speedplay Stainless Steel pedal and cleat.  In true Shimano style; they have not sacrificed to get there though – in fact it appears that there is actually more pedal surface contacting the cleat and offering a broader support platform for more comfort and efficiency.

These are sure to be in slim supply for a while (this pair is actually already sold…) so get your orders in now!  We’ll fill them in the order that we receive the deposit.

Yeah, our scale says 250 grams.  Chalk that up to grease on the bearings.  It’s 1 gram per pedal for goodness sake!
