Shimano XTR M985 Trail Pedal

XTR Trail Pedal
Building on the long legacy of Shimano Pedaling Dynamics (SPD) technology, the new XTR Trail pedal is engineered for the specific needs of aggressive trail riders everywhere, with an open, mud-shedding design and large pedaling platform for ultimate control.

Together with the saddle and the handlebar, pedals make up the holy trinity of contact points between man and machine. Drop the saddle or get behind it in a technical descent and those contact points are reduced to just two—hands and feet—with pedals accounting for the bulk of riders balance and bike control.

With a wider, more stable stance backed up by widely braced bearings and nearly 10 times the effective contact area between the pedal platform and riders shoes, XTR Trail pedals deliver unparalleled control when clipped in, and a reliable, extra-wide-area platform for those inevitable “in-between” moments that come with unpredictable trails.

Combine the large pedal/shoe contact area with a lower platform height—effectively moving the riders foot closer to the center of the axle—and the power transfer and efficiency capabilities of XTR Trail is all-time, ready for any trail.

    * Stable Platform
    * 585mm² shoe/pedal contact surface
    * Integrated pedal cage
    * Uses current SM-SH51 cleats(included)
    * Cleat retention indicator and adjuster
    * Mud shedding design
    * Approximate weight 398 grams

I ride these on my CX and XC bikes. I find the extra surface area on the trail pedals to assist in quickly getting clipped in when transitioning on uneven surfaces.

      Comments about Shimano XTR M985 Trail Pedal:

      I love these pedals. I got them befor the middle model but they have lasted. I've had two other models from the same manufacturer that are no way near the quality of these. My only complaint is some of the soft areas can cause bues and result in nasty scrapes and cuts if not filed off correctly.

        Comments about Shimano XTR M985 Trail Pedal:

        This is a great pedal. Plenty of room on the platform for a quick takeoff before getting locked in. Sheds mud and sand very well. I've never had a problem getting in or out of the pedals.

        My only complaint which keeps these pedals from a 5 star rating is the bearings seem to loosen up. I've had my pedals less than a year and their is quite a bit of bearing play on the axle.

        Comments about Shimano XTR M985 Trail Pedal:

        I was using Shimano PD pedals for about a year and was experiencing numb feet on long rides. I decided to try this pedal with its large pedaling platform and my issues were gone. It's heavier and more expensive than most pedals, and designed for trail riding, but it has done the trick for me commuting and riding long rides on weekends.
