Description

Shimano's Workhorse MTB Pedal

An incredible value in an offroad clipless pedal from Shimano! The PD-M520 SPD pedal features adjustable release tension and includes a set of SH51 SPD cleats with 4 degrees of float. While they only weigh slightly more than the higher-end XT and XTR pedals from Shimano, they boast all of the same features and the same high-grade performance at a fraction of the price. These pedals will serve you well and won't break the bank. The dual-sided mechanism lets you easily clip in with a simple step, without looking down at your shoes

Features:

  • Fluorine-coated binding claws allow for easy entry and release
  • Pedals are dual-sided for easy entry
  • Low-maintenance sealed bearing cartridge axles
  • Dual-sided tension adjustment
  • Open design avoids clogging
  • Strong Cro-Moly axle
  • Sealed cartridge bearings
  • Available in Black or White
  • Compatible with Shimano SPD cleats (one pair of SM-51 single release included)
  • 380g/pair

    Excellent Product

    Bought these pedals for use with fixed gear where I need to engage the trailing foot asap after push-off. These do the job perfectly - as the left foot comes off the ground, I can clip in almost immediately and attain maximum power - essential in heavy traffic. Single-sided pedals are fine for a regular freewheel where you can coast, but not here.

    Shimano PD-M520 pedals awesome and affordable gravel pedal

    The Shimano PD-M520 pedals are an awesome and affordable gravel pedal. The pedal is very well made and I have never had an issue or problem with them. Maintenance and service is easily done. I find these pedals just as good as the higher end XT/XTR pedals. Very please with this purchase.

    Clipless is not for me.

    I bought this as an entry level clipless pedal, and felt the value was good. After riding it around the block a few times, I really liked it. However, when I rode it to work, my toes would go numb. I tried adjusting cleat position and seat height to no avail. This could because of my casual cycling shoes (Shimano CT5) I was using did not have a stiff enough bottom, rather than the pedal's fault, but needless to say, I stopped using both of them.

    My only complaint about this product is that it's impossible to return because the clips and pedals will never be like new after first use. I would have returned them, but it's honestly just the nature of the product. You can't return it.

    Simple pedal system that works every time

    For a bottom of the barrel pedal in this range, they sure do work great. Yeah they might be a few grams heavier than their more expensive counterparts, but when your CX bike is covered in mud, grams don't matter anymore. Clip in and out each time, no binding, no issues. Adjustable tension too!

    Great pedals

    These are my first clipless pedals for my mountain bike. They work great on the rail trails I ride most of the time. I have been using clipless on my road bike for years. It's great to be using clipless on both road and gravel.

    Good for a few thousand miles, not rebuildable,

    Shimano Pedal Dynamics (SPD) are the pedals I used when I went clipless 15 years ago. I wore out 3 set of SPD's, never found a rebuild kit. 10 years ago I switched to Crank Bros Eggbeaters and Candy, for which I have rebuild kits ($10) and rebuilt 1 set. Cleats wear out before the pedal bearings. I remember a few episodes of SPD's jamming on engagement/disengagement. Scary when the pedal won't let go of your foot. Crank Bros are rebuild-able and smoother engage/disengage.

    I just don't know, why I didn't order this sooner. It looks good and does his purpose. I ride more than 3,000 miles a year, so I need something in good quality and since all my other accessories are from Shimano, this completes my bike.

    Excellent Value - Highly recommended

    These pedals are working great! I did have to adjust the tension several times to get into and out of them safely. I am not sure why someone would spend 10 times the amount for a pedal that weighs a few grams less. They spin fine, don't make noise, hold securely. I am happy with the purchase. Maybe those expensive pedals are awesome, but these are well worth the money I paid. No complaints.

    Nice price for a nice pedal. Particularly like the option of using the bolt for installation instead of only

    the hex option through the stem.
