Strengths:    Bearings.
Stiff axles.
Wide platform.
All metal construction.
Look good on any bike.
Replacement cleats are cheap.

Weaknesses:    Very expensive.
Some might say heavy for the price.
Not enough float for everyone.
Too much release tesion for smaller riders.
Scratches and chips show easily.

Bottom Line:   
These are a reliable and solid pedal with excellent performance. Cleats are easy to walk in and set up too.

Nice positive cleat engagement with excellent security. The bearings are brilliant and require no maintenance. The platform is wide and the axles have no flex.

The stack height is noticeably lower than Look models but not as low as Time or Speedplay.

They have just the right amount of float and the all metal construction should be durable.

They are not light at 275 grams a pair but the total weight of pedals + cleats + bolts etc is only slightly behind other top end pedals. Ti cleat bolts are available for people who care.

Even on the easiest setting, they will be too much for some lighter people or beginners.

As mentioned by another reviewer, after a few months of general use they don't look too flash and strangely, don't look as nice cosmetically as some carbon pedals. Doesn't affect performance though.

Strengths:    float is great so is wide platform, work flawlessly.

Weaknesses:    very very cheap finish, will be sending them back for warranty!!!!

Bottom Line:   
Loved the nice anodized finish when i bought them but after 4000 km severe pitting and peeling of finish. can't believe how cheap the finish is on these expensive pedals. bike is cleaned often, never had problems with my old pedals (10 000 plus km)

Strengths:    Wide, stable platform, durable, smooth, beautiful...dura ace. I will never ride another pedal.

Weaknesses:    Compared to speedplays, which hide weight on the cleat, these pedals are a bit heavy (though the total pedal+cleat weight is similar). So if you're a hopeless weight weenie (I am not) your bike will feel a little heavier in the hand. Really expensive if you don't do your homework before buying. At retail I'd ding 'em for value, but they're a steal for what I paid.

Bottom Line:   
Bought these after my speedplay X5s completely wore out at about 4000 miles. Problems with speedplays: tiny interface translated to a not-so-solid pedaling platform (significant wiggle), tiny interface caused hotspots, cleats were expensive and difficult to walk in, plastic lolipops wore down quickly. What I like about Shimanos: wide pedal interface for a very stable platform and no hotspots at all, low-profile cleat very easy to walk in and don't need rubber covers, very durable...2 tumbling crashes and only a few scratches (but still work perfectly), all this after 7500 miles. Nice positive click in and out, with adjustable tension. Cleats that come with pedals still allow a good deal of float. These things are awesome.

Strengths:    fit and finish
foot stability (made me realize how sloppy speedplays were even with new cleats and no more hotspots on my feet.
inexpensive cleat replacement
float is ultra smooth like ice

Weaknesses:    oh yeah there is one. i have sidi shoes and the cleat bolts the pedals came with were too short. the bolts would thread two threads worth and then when you torque the bolts, the bolt would strip because it was hanging on by only a few threads.

Bottom Line:   
replaced my speedplay zero SS (junk). the first thing i thought was, these are huge pedals, i was just used to the small zeros.

super clean, nicely made quality product, dura ace of course. easy in with an assuring snap when clipped in. takes some work getting out of(comparing to speedplay), had to set on lighter spring tension fixed my issue.

cleats are huge with a large lip so when you engage the pedal, even if you havent "clicked" in yet, your foot wont slip foward and out (like on the zeros). all plastic cleat, but half the price of speedplays to replace, and believe me, i went through many speedplay cleats, until the actual plastic on the pedal itself cracked and rendered them junk.

so far so good. no more "hotspots" on my right foot due to the huge contact point. and my foot rocks less feeling more stable on these.

Strengths:    Light, good bearings, clear anodized aluminum, as road components should be

Weaknesses:    Not the best engagement feel (LOOK is more positive both in feel and sound) float is bad- I often start to feel knee pain and then realizd I'm not floating. I clean cleats often and use silicone spray once in a while.

Bottom Line:   
Pure vanity but I wanted a complete Dura Ace group for once in my life, so I got the 7810's.
