Shimano's venerable XT group got hit so thoroughly with the redesign hammer for 2016 that the effects are apparent even outside of the usual tweaks to derailleurs and shifters. XT options like the wheels, crank, and cassette have gotten wider across the rims, Q-factor, and gear range, respectively, and the XT PD-M8020 Trail Pedals followed suit. Shimano's revised trail racing pedals are perhaps less changed than the rest of the XT kit but for two key dimensions: their platform is 3.3mm wider for an 11.7% increase in pedal platform size as compared to their predecessors, the M785s.

Other than that increase in the platform and the obligatory aesthetic redesign, the pedals remain largely unchanged. Four degrees of float, two-sided entry, bombproof durability of the body and sealed cartridge bearings, and simple, muck-clearing cleat-to-pedal interface — all the features that recommend Shimano's SPDs as the default do-it-all pedals are still present.

As with the previous model, the 2016 Trail is slightly heavier and more substantial than the XC race version, but the trade-off is a wider, more stable platform for confident responsiveness whether you're dropping your own hammer or clearing techy rock shelves on a climb with jerks and hops. They've also got a bit more survivability in the event of a pedal strike.

XT for the win

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great peddle that has been known for years for it durability and cost. Just like most things I look for on my bike, I want them to last and I don't want to break the bank. These peddles hit both of these marks.

Straightforward and good quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am admittedly new to clipping in and have yet to put many miles on these yet, but what I can say is that they're well made, easy to adjust, and quick to get into. Solid choice for a beginner or an expert. Great price and great quality.

The choice

    If you are in the market for clipless pedals, look no further. Buy these. Great price, easy release, easy adjustability,

    Awesome pedal.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ride my MTB 2-3 times per week, and these pedals have stood up to the regular use in all conditions swimmingly. After the first couple hundred miles, you may want to tighten the tension screw 3 or 4 clicks as they will break in.

    Tried and True

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Shimano SPD reliability, and a cage that's big enough to give you some security when not clipped in, but small enough not to add a ton of weight and bulk. I've had a few hard rock strikes with no significant damage to the pedals.

    Super durable, great price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    XT pedals are sort of a staple in the pedal game. One thing that folks don't necessarily consider is the benefit of the beveled pedal frame vs. other options. I had a pair of HTs for a bit and whenever I had a pedal strike, the HTs would get all hung up on the rock. Shimano's tend to glide off the rocks a bit more easily when you have your little pedal strike oopsies.

    Great Clip;less option to start on te Tr

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought these for trail riding. The tension adjustment has a wide range and allows for a good clip in with easy release when necessary. Also rode downhill 1 day without any issues. Good pedal for the money

    Thank you for contributing to our community, Chester! Your feedback is welcomed!

    Great Pedals!

      I puchased these pedals so that i would have a wider pedal base to use while on the bike. Not only do i enjoy having a little extra pedal to use while starting my pedal stroke, i also use these when biking around town with tennis shoes on as well.

      Ol' Reliable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Replaced an older version after an incident with a rock...these are my go to pedals. Hold up very nicely and don't have mechanical problems.

      XT = More than Adequate

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The wide pedaling platform on these pedals made it super easy to convert from flats to clipless this season. The pedals are easy to adjust making clipping-in and out is a breeze compared to others on the market. They're ultra reliable and built to last!

      All you need

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you're looking for a clipless pedal, the search can end here. Just get these. I love the easy/adjustable release, great feel and great durability.

      I see little to no reason to go to an XTR pedal over this XT pedal.

      Why do other pedals even exist?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Why do other pedals even exist? Just get these.Bomb proof, easy in and out, adjustable


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Easy to adjust, clip into, and a very solid platform when riding. 10/10

      Great Pedal

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These pedals are a great design which has only been perfected over time. They have really helped boost my climbing and descending confidence and have made me a faster rider over all. I can feel a contact difference with black collar that runs the perimeter of them which I think lends additional control to my riding. I also enjoyed the adjustability of these pedals which allows me to easily pop out when I need to. 5 Stars way up for these bad boys.

      Great reliability, stability

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used XT XC pedals for years. A year ago I switched to the Trail pedal. Same awesome durability/function of the XT clipless, but much better than the XC form factor when unclipped on tricky terrain.

      Great Pedals

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Just got these pedals and so far they seem great! Easy to clip in and haven't accidentally popped out yet.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I brought these after my XTR pedals broke from hitting a rock. Thus far, they seem really durable for how light they are. I can barely tell that they are different from the XTRs when I'm riding. True, they might be harder to clip in to in comparison to Crankbrothers, however, I would take durability over ease to clip in any day!

      Gets the Job Done

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Light enough. Feels solid when clipped in and easy to disengage in a pinch.

      Performs Well

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Works well in all conditions. The outer platform allows me to check my tuning as I go with my tennies without the need to put my bike shoes... nice benefit.
