      Comments about Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Pedal:

      I have run different variations of the SPD pedal since I started mountain biking 8 years ago. When the new XTR came out, of course I had to get a set. They lived up to all of my expectations in terms of feel and weight when riding. Unfortunately after i had been riding them for about 6 months, i was pedaling from my car to the trailhead, and the right pedal body had snapped off of the spindle! Luckily I was just on flat ground and not going fast so i didn't fall and wasn't injured. I had my LBS call up Shimano and had a new pair in a few days. Since then I haven't had a problem with them. I love the adjustable tension and the solid click you get when you clip in...they really let you know when you're in. I tried switching to Crank Bros or Time pedals throughout the years, but never liked the feel as much as Shimano. I'll keep buying them (or having them warrantied) for years to come!

        I have a pair from 99' that are still going strong on my mtb and now that I am racing and riding much more I decided to get a pair for my cross bike. I have been very happy with how well they spin, getting in and out during muddy and tricky cross races, and the price is unbeatable on this site.

            Upgrade from XT. Only 1 race on these, but so far so good. Seem to be tough enough for multi day racing without a lot of faffing.

                    Been on these for over a year without any issues. Lightweight, durable, and flex free.
                    Others may be lighter but none will last as long. Best bang for the buck especially at this price. Jenson to to rocks!

                    Comments about Shimano XTR PD-M980 Race Pedal:

                    I have these pedals on my Ellsworth Epiphany. I Swithched from the lightest pedals on the Market to these because I was having unwanted release issues with the other pedals. There is nothing worse than coming unclipped when you don't want to. Also the Brass cleats on the Bling Bling pedals wore out really quickly. I was going through a set once a month in the summer.

                    I love the ability to adjust the release tension. They have a low profile which reduces pedal roll. Steel cleats Last and Last. Very durable. Easy to Pull apart and maintain. Easy to step in and out of.

                    My only complaint is the weight which in the grand sceme of things isn't that much of a difference, and if performance suffers for the sake to weight it's just not worth it.

                      I just installed these on a new Niner AIR 9 RDO. They're light and were easy to set up and dial in. I can't speak for the durability yet, but if they are like the rest of the XTR groupo, I'm not worried.
