At the top of the curve.

For a sport that relishes in mud and sand, paying a premium for components seems counter-intuitive. Once in a while something comes along that is worth every grain of sand. The Shimano XTR M-9000 Race Pedals are just that something.

Most noticeable is the weight. The M-9000 pedals are nearly 100 grams lighter than cheaper pedals, reducing extra weight you’ll be carrying on your frame. They are fabricated with lightweight, durable chromoly spindles and aluminum pedal bodies, ensuring fast, reliable cleat-to-pedal engagement, each and every time. And, while the bearings are still wide-set for stiffness, the axle-bearing interface has been revamped for increased smoothness and longevity.

  • Compatible with Shimano SM-SH51 (single release angle) cleats and SM-SH56 (multi-release angle) cleats
  • Hex adjustable entry and tension

XTR, and worthy of the group

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ride both SPD-S and two-bolt SPDs depending on the time of year. This summer I did a bunch of 'adventure' riding on trails and singletrack, and wanted to use shoes with tread (thus needing two-bolt SPD). I rode about a month on 105-level SPD pedals, which were okay.

I upgraded to these because they were on sale and, wow, it's like a different cleat-system altogether. These things are easier to clip in/out, but less likely to release accidentally. The bearings are unreal, with noticeably lower friction than my 105s. They weigh less too, although I don't know if that makes any real difference.

After about a month on these, I have to say that I love them. They compare very favorably with my three-bolt Dura Ace SPD-9000 pedals, and I'm having a hard time deciding which is better. In the end, the main reason I'm putting the SPD-9000s back on is that I need them for my cold weather and rain shoes.

Highly recommended.

Everything you would expect...and more

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Fit and finish is excellent quality. Release action is easy to adjust and smooth. Clipping in is very easy. $/gm makes them a very good value.

Three Thumbs Up

Ultimate power transfer matched with legendary dependability in an evolutionary racing pedal, the result of 20 years of SPD pedal design experience

This XTR pedal is ideally suited for cross country racing due to its lightweight compact design

Lightweight and high performance forged alloy body with hollow chrome-moly axle for stiffness and durability

Low profile platform height of 8.1mm with large platform contact area of 226.9mm square for excellent support and stability

Beautifully constructed with a strong and slender spindle, using an 8mm Allen wrench mounting system

Teflon coated open binding system with slim oval axle body housing sheds mud efficiently and reduces stiction

Sealed cartridge axle system for reliability and simplified low maintenance

Easy entry system and tension adjustment provides plenty of support and holds the cleat firmly in place for those big sprints

Solid No Frills Pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a huge fan of the XTR Race pedals. The M9000 version continued Shimano's legacy of a solid no nonsense pedal.

Staple pedal.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using these SPD pedals for 20 year or better. They are my go to MTB pedal. They clean out well and are very predictable when in mud or the dry. These are easily adjustable. Great reliability. My last pair lasted over 12 years - the reason I bought these pedals again!

The Standard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pedals build confidence. You can ride the mud or the dry powder dust and they will keep engaging and releasing under the same pressure every time. Easily adjustable with a turn of an allen key. Predictable in all aspects of the ride. There is a reason these SPD has been around for nearly 25 years - they work!

Still the best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy to clip in and out but keeps you secure when you need to be in control. Great mud clearance. Lightweight too.

Light, yet secure

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been running XTR pedals now for almost 10 years. The design has changed slightly, but for the most part, SPD has been a timeless classic. I have used crank brothers egg beaters as well, the float is nice to have, but there is nothing like being able to have that secure feeling of being clipped in when you are letting gravity take you down the mountain.The cleats can endure a lot of use and the pedals themselves can take a beating too. The other nice feature, is that as your cleats get some use and start wearing out, you can just increase the tension to hold you in. When you have it maxed out on tension or they are sloppier than usual, you just buy a new pair of cleats. The price difference is pretty large compared to the weight savings over the XT, but if you are looking for the best, you can't go wrong with the XTR pedals.

Light, yet secure

Shimano is my go to brand Road, MTB, CX

    This is my second pair of Shimano XTR pedals, just installed on my CX bike. My first is installed on a MTB and works flawlessly,
    Typically I ride both on hard packed single track trails with moderate mud and grass. Getting in and out of these pedals is a breez, even if you don't get clipped in the first try just pedal and feel around a little and before you know it your in!
    Shimano is my go to brand for road mechanical and Di2, to XTR MTB and now Cyclocross.

    Best Pedals all around.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great pedals. Switched from Candy SL's to these and there is no going back to Crank Brothers. Completely bombproof.

    Best mountain pedal we sell

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    most durable, easy to use, and awesome pedal we have

    Great pedal at a great price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got these on sale for $99 -- almost the same price as XT, but a lighter pedal. I've had a pair on my mountain bike for almost two years and haven't had any issues.

    Excellent XTR quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just as expected Shimano XTR quality. Not the lightest pedals out there but the best bang for your buck. If you go too light, strength suffers, with these M-9000 pedals you get very light weight pedals but very sturdy as well. Great tension adjustability, great bearings, and a good mud shedding design + good looking.

    Where the watts go

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After years of riding the lightest pedals I could find, I finally had an epiphany: I want pedals that don't break every couple months, and I want something to actually put watts into. No, the XTR PD-M9000 isn't the lightest pedal on the market, but it sure as heck isn't heavy, either. The moment I clipped into a set for the first time, I was in love. The cleat/pedal interface is secure and confidence inspiring. Although most will argue that a stiff-soled shoe is really the decider in power transfer, I swear I feel more power going from legs to drivetrain via these solid pedals. And I yeah, I've been running the original set for two seasons now. Bombproof.
