It's all about consistency from pedal to pedal, and feel of the pedals when standing. Same applies to their MTB pedals.
  • On the R540s, you're on a plastic platform
  • On the 105 (5800), you're on a screwed-on, stamped metal platform
  • On the Ultegras (8000), you're on a machined metal platform
There of course differences in the bearings as well. At under $100, I'll go with Ultegras every time.
