Shimano PD-M540 Pedals

Inspired by the top of the line M959 racing pedal, the M540 offers a similar sculpted body and minimalist axle design. The open body sheds mud easily and yields easy cleat entry and exit in all types of riding conditions. SPD® binding mechanisms on both sides of the pedal make entry fast and easy without the need for pedal flipping. Adjustable release tension lets you dial in the binding mechanism.

Package includes two pedals and Shimano SPD cleats.

  • Weight: 350 g
  • Float: 5 deg
  • Material: Steel spindle, aluminum body

    I ride technical All Mountain and have been using these for quite a while. Adjustability a major plus. Switched from Crank Bros Candy pedals. I find the cleats on the Shimanos last so much longer than the CB cleats. You actually "save" money by buying these pedals over the CB!

    I rode the Ritchie SPDs for a long time, but after 6 years wanted to get something new. These Shimanos were on sale, great price. I was biking in Colorado and Utah, and after the first ride, the grit made the pedals USELESS DEATH TRAPS. Because I couldn't unclip smoothly, I started getting sketched out by technical obstacles, which decreased my riding enjoyment. I pulled these pedals off after the second ride, and they may even end up in the trash.

    A great intro to clipless pedals

    By Hariboy

    from Winnipeg, MB, Canada

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy Installation
    • Good Value
    • Solid

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Pedaling

      These are a great place to start for clipless pedals without breaking the bank.

      So far I've only used them with the bike on a trainer (it being icy out). They are easy to clip in and out and easy to adjust to the right tension for my beginner's level of comfort. No popping out experienced so far.

      Installation was easy. I recommend using a torque wrench (with 8mm hex) if you have access, just to ensure you don't over or under tighten.

            Pros

            • Relatively Smooth Bearing

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Using on a tandem. This seems to be the best priced decent pedal. Ritchey's bearings feel like they are in sand, Chinese made square bearings. Would love to have a decent sealed bearing pedal instead.

                      Great pedals for the money. Solid engagement with easy adjustment. This is the third pair of these I've owned and highly recommend them.

                        • XC

                        This is one of the more versatile pedals I have used and love its durability, how easy it is to adjust and how well it performs both on the trail and while hopping barriers during a cross race.

                          A great bang for the buck, rock solid SPD pedal. Only a few grams heavier than the XT with the same adjustability and same solid build quality.

                          Lighter pedals are available. Add some titanium spindles if you want and you still come out ahead price wise and reliability wise.

                            What I really like about theses pedals is that you can get into and out of them with ease. Makes for a safe ride.

                            The price was right as well, half the total price if I had purchased them retail in Canada.
