Shimano Ultegra Carbon $299

Shimano’s pedals have always been incredibly durable and easy to use, and this pair is no exception. Now they’re also light. The metal pedal body Shimano traditionally uses on its high-end pedals has been replaced with an injection-molded carbon body that helps get the Ultegra Carbon pedals, cleats and hardware down to 328 grams.
