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

    They look good, for the price not bad but they are heavier that I expected. Heavy duty though.

      Got these to replace the stock flat pedals on my Trek mtn bike. A definite upgrade, but will probably replace with a wider single sided for more versatility.Will put these on my road bike.

        Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

        I've only had the pedals for a couple of weeks so I don't how they will hold up in the long term but as they are now they are a great improvement over the more expensive Shimano single entry spd pedals that I had been using before. Every time I press down I clip in. No more flipping the pedal over to clip in. This is much safer and just generally more efficient when riding in traffic.

          Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

          I've recently started mountain biking. Decided to try clipless to solve the keeping my feet on the pedals problem I was having negotiating obstacles. I took a couple of falls from not being able to get unclipped but once I adjusted tension and got used to them they're awesome. Pedalling efficiency is a huge plus; climbs became much easier, and now my feet stay where they need to be when crossing logs.

          Put me down as another fan of this product. For the price it can't be beat. Love the double sided entry. Pedal is super durable as well. I'll admit, my first 2 rides out with these I fell. I just forgot I was clipped in, what can I say? The pedals took the brunt of the impact each time and with the exception of some scratches, they were no worse for the wear.

            Comments about Shimano M520L Mountain Bike Pedals:

            These were my first clipless pedals. I was worried about reviews of clipless newbies saying "you will fall" Well, several rides, no crashes yet. I really like the force you can put on the upstroke. I also am surprised/pleased with the "wiggle" while pedaling. This seems to help with my knee. I had to have the kneecap screwed back together. When I got back to riding, my clip pedals made the knee hurt.

              This pedal is the best bang for your buck. You cannot buy another pedal for this price. The quality of this pedal would compare to a price point of $80 to $100 and I paid $25.99.

                  An excellent way to try clipless for yourself without a huge investment. I'm still amazed how this improves my whole riding experience, and wish I would've tried clipless years ago. A bit of a learning curve but well worth the effort. Pedals easy to adjust and work perfectly.
