Shimano M520L Mountain Pedals
While the Shimano M520L Mountain Pedals may be priced for the entry-level mountain biker, their performance out on the trail will make them feel like they're worth a million bucks. Using the same mechanism for entry and release used by its rock star Shimano XT and XTR brethren, clicking in and out of these pedals is a joy to behold. Have no fear if the going gets sloppy as they work great in muddy conditions while their aluminum body and chromoly spindle are up to the task of withstanding all the punishment you can dish out while having a rip roaring good time riding in the woods.
  • Aluminum body and chromoly spindle are super tough
  • Adjustable spring tension, top and bottom
  • Sealed bearings make for smooth pedaling
  • Includes Shimano SM-SH51 cleat

      Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

      I know everyone has beat the reviews to death concerning these pedals, but I have to add my two cents. What I love the most in these pedals is the double-sided entry and the ease of release. I used to have the occasional spill due to unclipping problems, but haven't had one single issue since I started using these. I have purchased 4 or 5 sets now and have never had one problem. They aren't the lightest pedal around, but you cannot beat the price, the quality, and the reliability. The M540 is the same pedal, but 25 grams lighter. Take 4 quarters out of your pocket; that's the difference in weight between the two models. NEGLIGIBLE, and certainly not worth the price difference.

      Have trouble getting them loose enough to easily unclip with out doing so while riding. Just taking time to get them dialed in. Over all seem pretty good for the money.

        Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

        I've been using a set of M520L pedals on my road bike for the last four years, and they still work great. I like how easy it is to clip in and out of them. And having clip-ins really helps when climbing hills, as one can use the muscle group that pulls the leg up, when the muscle group that pushes the leg down, becomes fatigued.

                  Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

                  These are my first clipless pedals and I am very impressed. They are easy to clip in and out of. They are a little difficult to adjust but be patient they will adjust. I have them adjusted to the maximum opening so I can get in and out of them easily. I have been told it is a rite of passage to fall while learning how to use clipless pedals. I have not had any issues. If you are patient and practice it will become very easy to use. I am giving them minus 1 star because they are on the heavy side. Overall great product from Shimano.
