THE BEST
SHOE IS THE
SHOE THAT
FITS YOU BEST.

When we invented SPD clipless pedals more than 25 years ago, we faced one small problem: there were no compatible shoes. So we took a good, long look at the human foot, examined how it functioned in cycling applications, and created a high-performance shoe from scratch.

We design, analyze and test cycling footwear that fit our standards and the human foot. And we’ve discovered that a rider’s foot behaves very differently when racing, mountain biking, touring, commuting or walking. In other words, one size (and one last) doesn’t fit everyone.


It’s why we offer the widest range of footwear types, lasts, sizes and styles. Sure, it would be easier to use just one last with different uppers and colorways to create a line. But when the shoe is purpose built to fit and perform, the results are millions of happy metatarsals, tarsals, phalanges, calcaneuses, plantar facias and taluses. That’s code for happy feet.

POWER TO
THE PEDAL

Footwear and pedals, engineered together, designed as a system, create a holistic outcome. Our pedal engineers collaborate with footwear experts to create the only shoe and pedal combination designed from the ground up to perform perfectly for each rider and their unique demands.

More than 25 years ago Shimano created the platform that changed cycling forever. And true to Shimano’s system engineering philosophy, for 2017 each combination of footwear and pedals-from SPD-SL, SPD and Click’r-optimizes bio-mechanics, engineering excellence, material selection, and craftsmanship to increase rider efficiency and comfort.

SPD-SL. ON-ROAD
PERFORMANCE PERFECTED.

The road-specific adaptation of the SPD concept provides a seamless shoe + pedal interface for more efficient power transfer under extreme pedaling loads and wide cleat for stability on or off the bike. Proven in competition and at home on the road.


POWER TRANSFER EFFICIENCY CREATED FOR THE
DEMANDS OF WORLD-CLASS RACERS.
EXTRA-WIDE PLATFORM

The wide platform dramatically expands the contact point between the cleat and pedal. Top-level racers have reported that the pedal and cleat interface provides a very solid feeling when they stand on the pedals.

SPRING TENSION ADJUSTMENT

SPD-SL pedals support three different ranges of spring tension adjustment: Standard, Light Action, and Wide. Now you can clip in and clip out with the optimal range of spring tension to suit your preference and usage situation.

SPD. FOR ON AND OFF
THE BIKE EFFICIENCY.

SPD is a concept that changed the sport, and performs both on and off the bike. Recessed cleats make walking easy. Perfect shoe to pedal interface delivers on the bike performance. With SPD you can pedal with greater efficiency, increased stability and added comfort.


WALK AND RIDE COMFORT
IN OFF-ROAD LANDSCAPES.
ADJUSTABLE ENTRY AND TENSION RELEASE

Adjustable bindings allow the cleat tension to be set to each rider’s preference.

CARTRIDGE SPINDLE BEARING UNIT

SPD pedals use a cartridge bearing unit which seals out dirt and moisture and greatly reduces the need for maintenance.

MUD-SHEDDING DESIGN

An open binding mechanism allows mud and debris to be flushed out when the rider steps in. The oval-shaped axle body housing and slimmer axle unit on the PD-M9000/M9020 pedals are the latest refinement of this design.

DURABLE, RELIABLE SHIMANO CONSTRUCTION

Off-road pedals must be able to take a hammering under all kinds of riding conditions. That’s why Shimano has consciously resisted the trend towards ultra-light off-road pedals that compromise durability and reliability.

SHIMANO CLICK’R. CONNECT TO A
BETTER CYCLING EXPERIENCE.

The latest addition to the SPD family, Click’r is perfect for any cyclist that wants SPD efficiency in a more user-friendly interface. Click’r shoes and pedals are perfectly matched to all riders to ride further, faster with less fatigue and more control.


ALL THE BENEFITS OF BEING CLIPPED IN,
WITHOUT THE INTIMIDATION.
WALK AND RIDE WITH PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT

The wide platform dramatically expands the contact point between the cleat and pedal. Top-level racers have reported that the pedal and cleat interface provides a very solid feeling when they stand on the pedals.

EASY IN, EASY OUT.

Our newly designed clipless system utilizes a recessed cleat, which works with our new SHIMANO CLICK’R pedals to transform comfortable walking shoes into a power transfer system. Our main focus in designing the SHIMANO CLICK’R system was to ensure that your energy and efforts produce maximum results.

WE HAVE
TOTAL FOCUS

ON THE ROAD
AND TRAIL
AHEAD.

Unlike other companies, we don’t build sunglasses for golfing, surfing, or yachting. We build performance cycling eyewear. Period.

Shimano Fusion Concept eyewear is purpose-built for cycling, leveraging our understanding of what advanced eyewear should do for cyclists: sharpen contrast, channel airflow, and offer protection from objects and UV rays. Performance is what cyclists demand. Because winning is always in fashion.
