SPD turns 24.

Ever since its debut in 1990, Shimano's SPD (Shimano Pedaling Dynamics) clipless pedal system has been the number one choice of commuters, recreational roadies, and XC monsters looking for bombproof pedals. The new XTR PD-M9020 Trail Pedal celebrates SPD's first quarter century by doing something that many of us haven't managed with age: losing weight.

It's not much, but Shimano claims that the M9020 is down from 379 grams in 2014 (the XTR PD-M985) to a svelte 376. This weight loss doesn't come at the cost of performance, though. In fact, the only difference between the XTR M9020, which is classified as a "trail" pedal, and the line-topping XTR M9000, which gets the sexier "race" distinction, is the former's inclusion of a large contact plate around the outside of the pedal itself. This dramatically increases the size of your pedaling platform and, in our minds, is well worth the 69 grams of added weight — especially considering that it's still lighter than almost any other pedal in Shimano's mountain range. The increased platform also affords the convenience of occasionally wearing shoes without cleats.

The Shimano XTR PD-M9020 Trail Pedals are dual-sided and compatible with SM-SH51 cleats (provided), SM-SH56 cleats, and the SM-PD60 reflector.

Just one ride!!

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

I have ridden with many other "clipped in" pedals for MTB, and had almost gone to just using shoes that don't clip at all. I cannot get over how easy it is to clip in and out. My ride today was over the top, can't wait to ride again tomorrow!

Awesome pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pair number 2! because they are that great. before that I came from the crankbrothers mallet pedal, another popular all mountain/ enduro pedal. I liked the mallets a lot and rode with them for years but the engagement on the shimano pedals feels much stronger, there is less float and they do not need to be rebuilt as often as the crankbrothers. I definitely made the right choice. i bash them on all kinda of hard surfaces. rocks, curbs, etc, and they keep on kicking. or spinning. or whatever.

Hell of a pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bombproof, great platform, and crisp clip-in feel. I've ridden Time, Crankbrothers and a slew of other brands but it's pretty hard to beat the Shimano reliability.

So far so good

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

I just replaced my Crank Bros Mallet Enduro pedals with these and so far I'm stoked! These are super easy to clip into and get out of. The adjustable tension allows you to fine tune your cleat retention. The Crank Bros provide more float, which (for some riders) is a great feature but so far I'm liking the SPD better.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anybody looking for an easy to use, durable trail pedal.

Greatest pedal ever!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Went with the trail pedal because I wanted a little extra support and these deliver. I couldn't be happier. Look great, Feel great!

Great pedals

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are on my new Niner RIP 9 Carbon. Very nice quality, I have an entry level of these on an older bike and the XTR version is superior. These grab the cleat easily and hold me on the bike. Only to disengage when expected.

Perfect Pedals

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are perfect for my MTB. Easy to clip / unclip, unaffected by dirt, durable. I have been using the old Deore version for many years on my commuter bike. I like that they can be used with regular shoes, if needed. When I decided to buy a good bike for the trails, these pedals were an easy choice.
I ride Speedplay on the road race bike, these XTR's everywhere else

much needed extra support

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

upgraded from basic XTs with a very small platform and the little bit of extra platform on the sides gives a lot of confidence downhill, jumping etc. Having ridden mostly platforms previously, I appreciate the extra support. ready to use out of the box and it's nice they included a cleat as well

Perfect So Far

    I've only worn these on one ride, but they were perfect. Easy to step into & get out of. I got these because I was getting hot spots on long descents with my non-platform spd's. It looks like these have solved that problem.

    Great pedals

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I upgraded from a similar spd pedal without a platform to this one and am very happy. I ride mainly cross country trails and appreciate the extra pedal below my foot on downhill sections. Double sided cleat needed no tweaking, is easy to get in and out of.

    Favorite

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Once i tried these pedals a few years ago, I haven't wanted any others. Love the double sided cleat, the platform for when you don't quite get clipped in or you're hopping on the bike for a quick ride without bike shoes. Bomber and haven't failed me yet.

    Nearly bomb proof!

      I have the M9000 on all my other mountain bikes but put these on my new SS and they are fantastic. Love the feel and stability of these pedals. Quick in and quick out on those difficult sections of the trail give me confidence to push myself knowing I would be stuck in the pedal if I need to bail! I'll switch over to the 9020 on all my other bikes when my 9000s need replaced.

      Great all mountain pedal

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am switching from the crankbrothers mallet pedal, another popular all mountain/ enduro pedal. I liked the mallets a lot and rode with them for years but the engagement on the shimano pedals seem much stronger, there is less float and from what i hear they do not need to be rebuilt as often as the crankbrothers. I think I made the right choice.

      I've been hesitant to upgrade to the 9020 XTR trail pedals due to early reports of the pedals catastrophically failing after less than 1 year of use. Have these pedals been improved? Are they warranted against failure for any period of time? Thanks!

      Hey Tomas - These pedals are covered by a 1-year warranty from Shimano and in my experience they are solid. Some people have had issues but seems to be pretty rare. Feel free to shoot me any additional questions directly.

      Perfect Pedal

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought these to use on my fat bike because platforms weren't cutting it. I use the non trail version on my mountain bikes and found these to be perfect with my Wolvhammer boots for my fat bike as well. These are a great pedal that give you a larger platform for those extra pulls and confidence when standing as well. Great solution to solve the dreaded 'fat bike slip'. I would strongly recommend this pedal

      Great pedals

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great pedals, easy to clip in and out.
      I have them on both of my road bike and mountain bike. They are worked great with the Mavic Rush shoes.

      shimano xtr pd-m9020 trail pedals

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      By far the best pedals that I have personally owned! Quick and easy access and light weight with a perfect width for my stance.
      I like Shimano pedals so much that I got my son the xt pair. I'd give them 5stars!

      Does anyone have experience using these when not clipped in? It almost looks as though one side is flat for free riding, but I cannot tell for the posted picture. Thanks!

      Hey DSN,



      I have the XT version of these pedals and riding with flat shoes can be a little tricky. Both sides are clipless, there is no flat side to facilitate flat shoes.
