Dura Ace PD-9000 pedals by Shimano are true racing specialists. They are made using a special carbon composite, which makes them very light and very rigid. Together with the high-quality needle bearings, forces are transferred to the road very effectively. The stainless steel top plate ensures the Dura Ace PD-9000 pedals are better protected against wear and tear. The axle is made of chromoly steel, a special alloy that is both light and strong. The special binding only rotates at the rear and has a release angle of 35°. You can even customize the release tension to suit your needs. As vital to the race bike as rubber is to a tire: The Dura Ace PD-9000 Pedals! ;"
