Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot easier to get in and out of I was frustrated about how much effort I needed to clip in and out of my Ultegra 6600 pedals. These PD R550's have a "wide range" of tension adjustment. meaning lighter tension, so I thought I'd try them, and yes, they were exactly as advertised. Easy to enter and exit, just by twisting your heel, it's not necessary to snap them out sharply. They are a bit heavy, otherwise they would be 6 stars for sure. Shimano should put this spring in their fancier bindings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance pedals I bought these pedals with little research, bad idea. They are great pedals but be sure you don't want to walk around once you get off your bike. The cleats make your shoes like reverse high heels. These are great for long performance rides where you won't have to clip in and out too often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid entry-level pedal I've put between 8-11,000km on these pedals each year for the last 3 years, and I've never had to service them or had any issues. The bearings don't seem to be quite as nice as the 105s I recently upgraded to on my other bike, but I don't notice outside of when I'm stopped and trying to clip in as I get rolling since the pedals don't always hang the same way. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, the lowest spring setting is extremely loose, so it's very easy to get out if you need to, but the highest tension adjustment is lower than what you would get with higher-performance pedals. For most racers, that's a reason to use the more expensive version, but as a starter pedal for someone looking at road cleats, this is a great option. The pedal body cover is metal, so it's considerably more durable than what you'd get with the R540s (one step lower on the Shimano road pedal hierarchy), and you get a nice solid connection with your foot. Overall, this is a great pedal that has stood up to many miles in rain and dirt with no problems.
