| 1/12/2015 7:42 PM Light Weight Quality by Chaff - verified purchaser I bought the Ultegra Carbon Road pedals as a pure indulgence. My regular metal pedals were OK but worn on the face plate. Despite my whim, the carbon pedals turned out to be great. They are very light and very precise when clicking in. The wider profile certainly gives more support for my feet and seem to allow a little more power in each pedal stroke. That may be an illusion but they certainly feel more powerful under my feet. The steel face plate is also wearing better than the regular plastic ones.�I was using some non Shimano plastic cleats to save a bit of money. They did not work with these pedals, they would not click in securely so I had to go back to the originals. They are very secure and feel solid with these pedals.
