Take your cycling to a new level with Shimano pedals
Pedals are one of the most important parts of a bike, the quality of which determines both the percentage of transmitted effort and the efficiency of pedalling, as well as the safety of the cyclist, handling and control of the bike as a whole. And Shimano knows all about it. Their engineers carefully consider materials, construction, shape, and thickness to design lightweight and durable Shimano pedals with a low Q-factor and high efficiency regardless of the conditions. Whether you want to adapt your bike to your riding style or just looking for replacement parts, Shimano pedals are a perfect choice, and Crooze can help you find the right fit.
A wide range of Shimano pedals to fit every riding style
Shimano makes pedals for different types of bikes and pedalling styles so that everyone - from the amateur cyclist to the professional athlete - can get the most out of riding their bikes.
One of the greatest innovations in pedal design has been Shimano's SPD system - the ultimate shoe-and-pedal combination for road racing. Combining a perfect anatomical fit with pure comfort, low weight, and stability, Shimano SPD pedals give the feeling of maximum connection with the bike.
SPDs are designed for off-road, cyclocross and casual riders: they are easier to use and give riders more freedom due to their float, so you can move your feet a bit even before the cleat releases from the pedal. For road riders, SPD-SL is a preferred choice because it has a larger platform and offers superior power transfer on longer rides. These Shimano pedals make pedalling more efficient and match with a wide variety of cycling shoes with a recessed cleat that makes walking more comfortable.
At Crooze, you can also find the right cycling shoes for use with clipless pedals: we have shoes for road racing, cross-country, for outdoor activities. Most of them look like ordinary shoes and are as comfortable as sneakers.
If you are looking for classic flat pedals, Shimano also has you covered. In downhill and gravity riding, their flat pedals are the perfect option because they allow riders to bail quickly, which is important when trying high-risk tricks. Shimano flat pedals are also the most common option for casual riders who just like to spend some weekends riding a bike.
Whichever type you choose, Shimano pedals will give you a greater level of efficiency, stability and comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to install Shimano clipless pedals?
Steps to install Shimano clipless pedals:
- Apply bicycle grease to the threads.
- Fit pedals into the crank arm hole and screw them in at an even 90-degree angle using a hex key or bike wrench.
Be aware that the threads on the right and left pedals differ, affecting the way you screw them on. The right-hand side has a right-handed thread meaning you need to turn the pedal clockwise to fasten. While the left has a left-handed thread, meaning you need to turn it against the clock to tighten.
- Screw until each pedal is fully fitted into the bicycle’s crank arms and sits tight in place.
Then you are ready to hit the road!
Are look cleats compatible with Shimano pedals?
No, you can not use Look cleats with Shimano pedals.
It is important to check for pedal compatibility before you buy a pedal as cleat bolt systems are not always compatible with each. For example, two-bolt systems are not necessarily compatible with other two-bolt systems, and the same goes for three-bolt systems.
Do Shimano Pedals come with cleats?
Yes, the clip-in pedals do come with bike cleats.
How to change Shimano pedals?
First you need to remove the old pedals from the crank arms. This can be done using a hex key or pedal wrench. Fit the key into the crankset arm hole, on the opposite side of the pedal. Then start unscrewing to loosen it. To loosen the left pedal, you turn the key hex clockwise. For unscrewing the right pedal, you turn the key anti-clockwise. Keep unscrew until the bicycle pedals are loose enough to remove from the crank arms.
Then you are ready to install your new Shimano pedals. First thing you need to do is put bike grease on the pedal thread to make it easy to remove again in the future. Then you fit pedals into the crank arm hole and screw them in at an even 90-degree angle using the hex key or bike wrench. Screw until each pedal is fully fitted and sits tight in place.
How to clip into Shimano spd pedals?
You fit your Shimano shoes to the pedals by aligning the shoe with the cleat and stepping down onto the cleat. You normally hear a click and you are ready to go.
To unclip from the pedal, you simply twist your foot to the side and it should detach.
How you clip in might vary slightly depending on the bolt-system, whether you have a three-bolt system - meant for MTB riding - or a two-bolt system - meant for road bike riding (and the most common clipless pedal system).
Note that even though the pedal and cycling shoes have the same clip-in bolt system, it does not mean that they are compatible. So be aware of this before purchasing.
How to remove Shimano pedals?

Are all Shimano pedals the same?
No, they come in different styles, models and sizes.
We have MTB flat pedals for off-road mountain bike riders, like the Shimano PD-EF205 and Shimano PD EF202. Or clipless pedals with cleats for long distance riders, like the Shimano PD500 SPD and Shimano SPD PD-T421. Or if you prefer clip-toe pedals we have the Shimano SPD-SL PD-RS500.
Are Shimano pedals good?
Shimano is a world-known brand when it comes to bike components. They offer an incredible wide range of good quality products that are known to be long-lasting and durable. Whether you are looking for bicycle parts for your standard bike or for your electric bike, Shimano has a part that will fit.
How to service Shimano pedals? how to service Shimano spd sl pedals? how to service Shimano 105 pedals?
Regular service will ensure that your Shimano pedals perform perfectly. Thanks to the high quality of the Shimano bearings, all you'll have to do is clean the cartridge and pedal body. The following process applies to both Shimano SPD and SPD-SL pedals, as well as to Saint, XT and DX flat pedals. Unscrew the axle from the pedal body using a 17mm wrench if your pedals have wrench flats or a Shimano TL-PD40 tool if it has a splined collar. After that, remove the old grease and dirt from the axle, wash the axle with a degreaser and dry it using a paper towel. That's it. Now you can return the axle to its place: fill the inner cavity of the pedal body with a heavy waterproof grease and install the axle. Be sure to tighten it according to the thread direction to 10Nm. Clean the threads in the crank arms and on the pedal axle with a degreaser and lubricate with chain lube. Your Shimano SPD-SL pedals are ready to use.
how to adjust Shimano clipless pedals? how to adjust Shimano pedals for cleats?
After installing the clipless pedals, you need to adjust the tension on the pedal's release system to prepare it for cleats. The comfort of riding depends on this. There are two adjustment bolts on each of your pedals located at the front and at the back of the bindings, and a tension indicator near each of the bolts. Adjust the bolts with the hex wrench until the tension indicators are equal. The tension is a personal choice, so you need to find your comfortable value to easily unclip from pedals. But remember that it shouldn't be too loose, because you can accidentally come out of the pedals during riding.
Which cleats for Shimano 105 pedals?
The pedals come with standard Shimano yellow cleats (SM-SH11) that provide +/- 3 degrees of rotation around the centre of the pedal and 1.5mm of lateral offset. Shimano also offers cleat covers that reduce cleat wear and slippage on smooth, hard or damp surfaces when walking.
Are Shimano 105 pedals worth it?
Yes, Shimano 105 pedals are totally worth it. They may seem expensive, but 105 pedals will last a lifetime. These pedals, third in Shimano road pedal hierarchy, are similar to the older Dura-Ace and Ultegra versions. Shimano pedal bodies for 105 are carbon composite, and there is a wide stainless steel plate over the centre to give the pedal body extra durability. Even after thousands of miles, they will still look and function as new.
What is the difference between Shimano SPD pedals?
The difference between Shimano SPD pedals lies in their constructions and functions. SPD (Shimano Pedalling Dynamics) is intended for mountain bikes, while SPD-SL (SuperLight) is mainly used for road cycling. You might choose to use SPD pedals on a drop-bar bike but you can't use the SPD-SL for off-road riding. The main difference is that the SPD-SL system holds the cleat in three attachment points, while the SPD has only two attachment points in the pedal so it can be easily released in off-road conditions. However, the tension on both pedal's release systems can be easily adjusted.
