Shimano XTR pedals review
Shimano’s been developing MTB clipless pedals longer than any other brand, and these are the pinnacle of its achievement.
They’re not the lightest, thanks to a chunky alloy body and ﬂex-free steel axle, but they’re the most reliable, sealed, easy to service and best feeling twin-sided MTB pedals around today. The cleats last an age and the mechanism can be replaced if it becomes worn or damaged.
However, over four years and thousands of miles, we’ve never had to do anything to them – not even a service. A genuine benchmark.
