Featuring an ultra-wide stainless steel pedal platform and adjustable cleat tension, the Shimano 105 pedal performs at a high level without breaking the bank. The durable sealed bearings and stiff cromoly axle mean this pedal stands up admirably to the rigors of competitive riding. Includes one pair of three-bolt SPD-SL cleats with six degrees of built in float.
Shimano's recessed cleat and clipless pedal technology, called SPD, revolutionized the cycling shoe/pedal interface. Since then, decades of legendary "in the dirt" dependability, reliability, and sheer endurance have made SPD the world's go-to pedal technology. Shimano's PD-5700 road pedals continue the SPD tradition, with proven designs that work in real-world conditions. The pedals offer such details as an extra-wide stainless-steel platform that efficiently transfers power from foot to pedal, a low-maintenance sealed cartridge axle unit, a large binding target for quick engagement, and adjustable cleat tension with indicators. The sealed bearings and chromoly axle help these pedals stand up to the rigors of competitive riding.
In 1961, a three-speed bicycle hub was displayed at the New York Toy Show. The hub--an affordable and reliable version of the multi-speed hubs growing in popularity at the time--caught the attention of the industry. So much so that by 1965, Yoshizo Shimano--the youngest son of the company founder in Japan--opened an office in New York. Shimano's goal was to get quicker product feedback and to provide technical and warranty assistance to retailers selling bikes equipped with Shimano parts. Though Shimano American has grown from that first modest office staffed by only three people to a full distribution center with sales and marketing offices, its goals are the same: listen to customers and meet their needs for both bicycle and fishing products.

UPDATE 12/8/12: I still think these are 5 star pedals however since buying these I put a pair of Shimano R-540 road pedals on a different bike and like those better. They're very similar except they're easier to clip out of and almost half the price. If you're trying to decide between the PD-5700's and the R-540's I'd go with the latter.
The only downside was the drive side pedals developed an annoying clicking sound under a heavy load like climbing after just one month of use. Internet and bike forum searching suggested regreasing the bearings and sure enough doing just that fixed the issue. This one minor issue in of by itself is not the reason for the 1 star off as regreasing moving parts is expected. However getting to the bearing "properly" requires a special tool from Shimano, $5 from Amazon but must be ordered as an add on item with the purchase of $25 or over. In the end I just took ordinary set of pliers to them which stripped some of the plastic off bu it got the job done.
The tool is Shimano TL-PD40 and I highly suggest buying it along with your pedals. IMO this small plastic part should come with the pedals hence the 4/5 star rating.
I'm totally new to road biking. This is my first road bike purchase in my life. My wife and I recently (2 months ago) took up the sport and we absolutely love it! The reason I mention this is because being new to the sport, I was able to remove my old pedals and install these Shimano 105 pedals all by myself (with a little help from some "do it yourself" videos on youtube.com). So if I can do it, anyone can do it!
Is it scary to use pedals where your shoes are clipped in? No way. In fact, my wife was totally against being clipped in but decided to try it anyway because I was raving at how much more efficient it was for me to pedal being clipped in. She also noticed that it was very easy for me to clip in/clip out when we had to stop our bikes (at a cross walk, etc.). After trying it just ONE time, she loves being clipped in. She says it keeps her feet straight on the pedals and gives her a better workout (i.e., not only pushing down but pulling up on the pedals).
I highly recommend this product. There are lighter options out there but since I'm new to the sport, these pedals did the job.
I just bought another set for my new bike...
