Pedals The Difference Ultegra/105s

Postby foo on patrol » Wed Mar 06, 2013 7:44 am

Can someone tell me the difference if there is any between Ultegra and 105 pedals please? :?

I don't care about the weight thingy. :wink:

The name printed on them and a slight weight difference

Functionally they are identical. I'm running the 5700's and am very happy with them.

I understand the material difference in some of the components would lead to less rust on the Ultegra. Further, there may be differences in the quality of the bearing. May or may not be relevant to your needs.

I've got both and can't pick the difference. Get the 5700 as they're cheaper.

Did all this recently and ended up saving by getting the 105 pedals. Which shoes did you get?

They are a bit lower profile also. Which means you can pedal through a few more corners, a little bit worthwhile in crits but apart from in crits not that useful.

I use the 105 SPD-SL pedals on my road and track bikes, great looking pedals and seem to last well. Prefer SPD-SL to SPD when it comes to long distance and hard riding, SPD is way nicer for commuting though.

My new Ultegra pedals seem an identical ride but smoother to engage and disengage, probably the placebo effect, cost more therefore must be better!

An update on the 105 pedals and T7 shoes.

They work well together and I have no problems with unclipping. I turned the adjustment up a full turn from easiest and they hold nicely and twist out without hurting the knee whilst twisting. :D
