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.
