Best Clipless MTB Pedal

I purchased these to replace 10 year old XTs that I wore out. I could rebuild the old ones but I got more than my money�s worth. The new ones are excellent and I expect they will last at least as long.

I like the larger platform for Mountain biking. My last XTR large platform pedals lasted 7 years before I finally wore out the bearings. I went with the XT's this time, way less money than the xtr and not that much heavier.

Great improvement over small platform pedals

Love the larger platform relative to prior Time Atac pedals- much more reliable for steep starts. Adjustable. Appear durable

Great service as always from BikeTiresDirect.

Good pedals

I like these pedals, a little on the heavy side but good platform if you want a little more support on your strokes.

Could be ridden with trainers occasionally, but would not recommend.

Platforms SPD Noticeable improved control

Noticeably more stable for endurotrail riding! Ive used SPDs 550s and the like for years for XC, trail, cyclocross, & I love them for their simplicity, reliability, mud shedding, lightness, etc, but then I wondered why I was worried about a weight penalty on my 32 lb full squish? These bigger platform SPDs add a subtle but noticeably improved contact with the bike. I definitely recommend them!

Light and supportive

These pedals are light and provide a great supportive base for your feet on long rides. I especially like the double-sided feature of these pedals. No problems getting in or out of these. I'm a road rider so can't review for dirt.

No hot spot

Bought these to get rid of the hot spot under my cleats from smaller spd cleats. No more hot spot and seems to have better power transfer.

Great pedals at a very good price

I really like these pedals on my mountain bike - I can start on hills without clipping-in until I am ready. Usually my foot finds the clip position within a crank or two and I am off.

Bad thing - you really need to get the correct shoe clips for mountain biking. I tried the regular SPD clips and my feet would not come out of the clips fast enough - even at the loose setting. I crashed twice around steep corners where I could not get my feet out fast enough.

If you buy these pedals - Get the SH56 SPD cleat with an M stamp. These cleats will allow a much easier unclip when needed. Have not had a problem since I purchased the SH56 cleats.

Solid

I've ridden SPDs for mtb as well as cyclocross racing for years and recently switched to the SPDs with the a larger platform and happy that I did. There's just a little more feel you get with the added surface area vs. normal SPDs. Also very nice to be able to ride with regular shoes when called for without slipping off.

The XT versions are very smooth and can be rebuilt when necessary, a great buy!

Excellent price great pedal

Saw these pedalat LBS for120 so when they showed up on BTD for 70 I had to pounce on them. I have dual platform SPD's on my Hybrid so I wanted a good SPD pedal on my road bike. They clip in quite easy, roll over smoothly and are easy to clip out of. Very happy with the product & BTD got them to me quite promptly. Great product excellent price!!!
