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.

              Liked the size and white color option. But, I tried two pairs of these pedals - both failed after several rides. They started giving a clicking feeling. Warranty replaced them, but after two tries, I went with something else.

                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.

                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.

                    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
