Race ready.

This is the second generation of Shimano's XT branded pedals. And as usual, the workhorse XT parts get some trickledown from Shimano's flagship XTR line. For this version you'll save a handful of grams per pedal over the older XT PD-M770 pedals, but most importantly, the design of the XT PD-M780 Pedals offers more platform to support your foot on the pedal body.

Like all other Shimano SPD pedals, it's a two-sided design so you can have easy access with the stomp of your foot. The two-bolt SH-51 cleats (included) have 4 degrees of float to allow some movement in your ankle as you pedal. At a glance it looks almost identical to the XTR pedals, but material differences make the XTR about 30 grams lighter. Function-wise you'd be hard pressed to tell them apart. The XT pedals are all about performance per dollar.

The Shimano XT PD-M780 Pedals are Dark Grey and have an aluminum body that relies on sealed cartridge bearings to spin on a plated chromoly axle. The retention mechanism can be adjusted on both sides to accommodate your preferred release tension.

  • Mud-shedding design ensures consistent engagement
  • Low-profile shape for added obstacle clearance
  • Cro-Moly spindle for strength

Can't go wrong with these. Even in the mud, they function great!

good but quality control issues..

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Second set of XT pedals in the past 2 years (2 bikes) and I love everything about them except both sets had to have at one of the pedal spindle bearings replaced after only a few rides. That upped the cost of the pedals by about $30...so I am not happy about that. Where is the quality control...?

workhorse of a pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

the XT pedals are very dependable, and just flat work well. adjustment is easy via tension screw, platform size is big enough to disperse pressure across the sole of my shoe, and the price is definitely right. i've owned the XTR's as well, but I don't think the extra weight on the XT's is reason enough to pay more for the XTR's, especially since the XTR's have experienced some quality control issues with seals in the past. i've also used candys and eggbeaters, but i've come back to XT's for the everyday comfort and dependability at a great price.

The. best. pedal.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I don't think you can buy a better pedal for the money. Solid. My only complaint is that the factory grease is too gummy, and you are likely to have trouble getting out of them if you ride in dry dirt a lot after the first 10 rides. I degreased both pair that I own in WD40 then re-lubed them myself, and they work like a charm.

Shimano XT

XT is high quality. If you can get 'em on sale they are worth it vs. the PD-M540. Otherwise the PD-M540 is basically the same thing but just a bit heavier.

You'd better buy these sick pedals now, because they are amazing. best money ever spent on a pedal

Adjustable and Dependable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I went away from Shimano SPD for a few years in favor of a pedal named after a kitchen implement, but I'm back. Early generations of SPD pedals did not clear mud well, but the current models have open architecture to evacuate crud. Plus, they have great adjustability and retention, and they spin smooth for a long time and don't break.

Responded on

Mike is completely justified with his love affair with Shimano XT products! All the tech trickled down from XTR with a slight weight penalty and a HUGE savings in cost! Listen to Mike Nelson...he's the best!!

my go to pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

ive been riding XT pedals for the last few years and love the quality. They are extremely durable-able to withstand many rock strikes,ext. Also easy to get in and out of. They arn't the lightest but definitely make up for it in quality. Highly recommended.
