Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Mountain Pedals
It's tough trying to be the best all the time, but Shimano's been at it for years, and this year is no different. Introducing the new XTR. These new Shimano pedals are kickin' butt and takin' names...better figure out which end of the "kickin'" you're on. The XTR mountain bike pedals are super-efficient, with 270% more shoe/pedal contact than the PD-M970, and they've got an even lighter/lower profile for some serious race-day ground clearance.
  • Open binding and slimmer axle for improved mud-shedding
  • High-strength, durable chromoly spindle with 8mm hex recess mount is durable and ready for some serious abuse
  • Sealed cartridge bearings for ultimate longevity and super-low maintenance
  • Adjustable cleat tension lets you set the perfect feel for your style
  • Forged and heat-treated steel cleats for durability
  • 6° float
  • 2-bolt SPD compatible
  • Wt.: 310g/pr
  • Includes SM-SH51 cleats

    Comments about Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Mountain Pedals:

    These are the best clipless mountain pedals available. Light, durable, and safe. My Eggbeaters are lighter, however,it would lock me in-preventing me from releasing when needed. At the price offered by Nashbar-it is a "No Brainer" to purchase.

      I use these pedals on both my road & mountain bikes. Light weight, stable platform and secure connection rivals most road specific pedals that I have used. Also, I like being able to walk around like a normal person. Unless I were racing, I would never use road specific pedals again.

      Great pedal for road riding. Finally light enough to be a good alternative to typical road pedals, with the added benefits of immediate clip-in and shoes you can walk in.

        Comments about Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Mountain Pedals:

        I always loved XTR's pedals for the accurate feel and control. The 980's, again
        offers improvements in weight and mud clearance over the previous generation. The only downside is sharp edges that can hurt your knee
        or may injure in a foot slip or a crash. The 970's had rounded tips.

        Bearing blowout

        Comments about Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Mountain Pedals:

        Despite these being Shimano's top of the line mountain pedal in less than a year the sealed bearings of BOTH pedals have failed. I don't know if this is a manufacture defect but I will be returning these pedals. It appears that the bearing seals just feel apart so the pedals "wobble" on the stem now. Its the same on both pedals. I bought these pedals becasuse I thought they would be high quality but for both pedals to fail in the same manner is disappointing.

          Not as light as Crank Brothers but much more durable. My last set of SPDs lasted 12 years. This is my first set of XTR pedals and I must say that they are quite extraordinary. I thought my 520s were easy in easy out....wow, nothing compared to these. And a very broad platform as well means more power to the cranks. I'm sold, I'll never run another set of pedals ever again.

            Comments about Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Mountain Pedals:

            I've run spds on my roadbike forever because I prefer mtb shoes since I like to be able to walk around when I get off my bike. What I didn't like about my old SPDs is that they were one sided, making it a little more inconvenient to clip back in from a stop. I was debating on switching to road pedals for this reason. I saw these had more surface area to contact the mtb shoe tread as well as being light and double sided. Thought I'd give them a try. More stability than I've had with any other SPD pedal. I have nothing but good to say about them. They are easy to clip in and out of, Not allot of float but plenty for me. I'm not a mt biker so I can't speak at all to their use in that direction.
