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

    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.

    They Simply work

        Best Uses

        • X Country

        Clipping in and out with consistent confidence is what you will get with these pedals. A bit on the heavy side compared to some race pedals but an excellent bang for your buck entry level pedal that function beautifully.

        Back to SPD!

        By Rickster

        Pros

        • Adjustable tension
        • Easier Release

        Cons

        • Clipping In When Muddy

        Best Uses

        • Mountain biking

        After years of riding with Crankbrothers I am back to SPD. The CB pedals (Candy, Mallet) are still better when it gets muddy but I have taken a few too many tumbles when I couldn't unclip.
        These Shimano M540 pedals are easier to clip in and out and today when I fell over I noticed both feet had come out. Nice! The M540s are OK in mud (not quite as good as CB) but I'll take a small mud tradeoff for safety with these M540s.

          Great simple pedal

          Cons

            Best Uses

              I bought these after my shimano 520's (?). The previous pedals lasted a long time but the. The loose ball bearings died they were cooked. Prices and technology have made anything with sealed bearings pretty affordable. I try to stay away from anything with plastic or loose ball bearings. These have a powerful spring and a secure lock. The float is adjustable but seems very strong at first.

                    I've always ridden Shimano clipless pedals and always have been super pleased with the performance. For the price, I don't think you can do much better than these pedals. I love ability to adjust the tension as well as the different cleat options Shimano offers with the multi-release or regular cleats. These pedals are solid. I've banged them on rocks and they still feel like new. Awesome pedals at a nice price!

                        Been using these pedals for both road and XC for over 6 seasons and still love em. Easy to adjust the clip tension and can take a beating. More than get your money's worth.

                            Have had other more expensive clipless pedals, finally decided to pick these up for a back up pair since they were on sale, and weren't to much heavier then the XTs. Well they've been on 2 bikes so far, Santa Cruz Blur, and Turner Flux, 4 yrs old and still going strong. When these go out, I will repurchase them again, and not as a back up.

                              Wow the price of these puppies has gone up! I remember I picked up a pair of these for like 30 something a year ago, but hey, that's inflation. These pedals work well and are affordable given how much of a performance boost you can expect to experience after you put them on. They stay on and are prett lightweight I feel. Good purchase overall. I've put around 300 something miles on them, so I'm still into them pretty fresh, but they're handling great so far.
