An incredible value in an offroad clipless pedal from Shimano! The M520 pedal features adjustable in/out release tension and includes a set of SH51 SPD cleats with 4 degrees of float. While they only weigh slightly more than the higher-end XT and XTR pedals from Shimano, they boast all of the same features and the same high-grade performance at a fraction of the price. These pedals will serve you well and wont break the bank. Dual sided mechanism lets you easily clip in with a simple step, without looking down at your shoes.

Compatible with shoes drilled with SPD compatible (2 bolt) drilling, but can be used with 3-bolt (Road style) shoes with the use of cleat adaptors.

Weight: 370 grams (weight does not include cleats)
Float: 4 degrees
Material: Aluminum, Chromoly Spindle, 9/16"

Huge difference

Such better control when compared to flat pedals. If you're thinking about trying clips, you won't go wrong with these, especially at this price.

Decent pedal, a bit heavy

I used these almost year before I had to replace the non-crank side pedal, one of the bushings or bearings was destroyed after a couple of pedal strikes while mountain biking.

I used these almost year before I had to replace the non-crank side pedal, one of the bushings or bearings was destroyed after a couple of pedal strikes while mountain biking.

These are very good for a first timer, the engagement is easy and intuitive, and the adjustability is great and makes releasing the foot again very easy to learn. I would try these again, but would be a lot more gentle with them.

Comments about Shimano PD-M520 Pedals:

I have used these pedals on my bike for about 3 years now. I recently was having some trouble clipping in with my right foot so I ordered some new pedals. Before I got the new pedals I replaced the cleats on my shoes and it turns out the pedals still worked like brand new, I just had worn down cleats. I have really abused these over the last couple years so much that almost all of the black paint is worn away but they still work perfectly well. Couple drops of oil once a month are all it takes to keep these running basically forever.

Comments about Shimano PD-M520 Pedals:

I tired clipless years ago and hated it. These pedals are so much easier to use then the old ones I have. Glad I made the switch, I have had a few falls at first but doing some figure 8's got me feeling at home with them in less then two weeks. And on the plus side your feet stay planted allowing you to focus on the task at hand, Also makes bike control much easier.

      Comments about Shimano PD-M520 Pedals:

      i can't believe I waited so long to go with a dual sided pedal. So far so good. This pedal works great. Entry and exit is butter smooth. Reliable clipping. No worry of accidentally coming unclipped. Not quite used to the 4 degrees of float yet. I find my shoe is often rubbing on the drive side crank arm. Might just need to adjust the cleats

          This is my first set of clipless pedals and I must say, I dont know how I've been riding without them. I gained 1 MPH on my home track just by putting these on my bike. You can pedal so easy with them.

          For the price you can't go wrong with these pedals. Yeah, they're heavier than say an XT or XTR pedal but I doubt you'll notice the extra weight.

          Comments about Shimano PD-M520 Pedals:

          I've ridden these for years, and find them to be great pedals for all levels and types of riding. A bit on the heavy side, but it's pretty much their only weakness, given the low cost and reliability. Unlike lighter/more expensive pedals, you don't have to feel bad every time you smash one on a rock (I have broken one pair, but it took a lot of punishment, and the other side still worked). Their mud-shedding is very impressive.

          If you can pick these up on sale, they're pretty comparable to the cost of cleats of many other pedals (and they come with cleats!).

          A new pair of these pedals with new cleats have caused me sore knees before, the float on isn't the best; however, once you wear them in (and your knees get used to them), the knee pain will go away.
