Shimano XT PD-M780 Clipless Pedal

Full-on race performance comes to the XT pedal! Inspired by Shimanos top-end XTR M980 Race pedal, the new M780 XT pedal delivers similar styling and functionality for half the price. The main improvement is a huge increase in pedal surface contact area - that means more support for your shoe and better power transmission.
  • Features a new, slimmer, weight saving axle design
  • includes Shimano SPD cleats
  • Offset binding allows better mud-flow through in sloppy conditions
  • Pair
  • claimed 343 grams

I switched out my old M505 pedals on my cyclocross bike to these new M780 pedals as I was looking for improved pedalling efficiency.

Sure enough, these things don't disappoint and the improved pedalling efficiency is readily noticeable. The cleats fit solidly into the pedal while at the same time being very easy to clip in-and-out of.

I definitely recommend these pedals. There is a lot of surface area to the pedal even without the cage option.

Word of caution: Be sure to have an 8mm hex key on hand if you want to install these pedals as soon as you receive them. The pedals can only be tightened into the crank from the inside of the arm. With the M505 pedal, one uses a wrench to tighten the pedal stem into the crank arm. Not the case with the M780.

Add these pedals come with cleats, so no worries there.

All in all, great pedals for a cross/MTB bike.

    Fantastic. Awesome. I've just found that this is not the best pedal for muddy days. Clearing mud can be an issue.

        I used, and loved, Eggbeaters for years, and I got these just to try something different. I've found no downside at all. Ease of entry was where I expected to see them fall short of the Eggbeaters, but not so; step on the pedal and you're in!

                Install pedals and adjust them I went three clicks from full soft. I find it a little hard to unclip from the factory setting. I would suggest that you use the adjustment so they are a little easier to unclip. But these are the best pedals and they hold up to years of abuse.

                    I have been riding clip in peddles since the were invented. Shamino has been my favorite brand and I have gone wrong with the XT quality peddle. You get what you pay for . If you intend on mountain biking in rough ,dirty, wet and peddle bashing conditions buy this peddle. It will take a beating and last. The lower end Shamino peddles are ok for city or bike path use. I have ridden this pair for about two years, three days a week, from March through December. They have held up as I expected they would. Just one note about the cleat. I prefer the SH 51 single release. The SH56 multi direction will pull out under hard peddling on technical climbs. If you ride hard and not pre release in the tough technical section stay with the SH51 cleat the comes with this peddle.
