XTR PD-M9100 Pedals

With Shimano recently updating its venerable XTR group, the XTR PD-M9100 Pedals get a redesign as well, providing more stability, and the ability to shed mud better than ever before, along with 2 spindle length options. These improvements are the result of a refined pedal body shape that offers a wider edge-to-edge contact area over the outgoing 9000 pedals for an increased shoe to pedal interface and thus, better power transmission. It also features rounded edges to help shed mud and prevent accumulation.

The retention mechanism is basically the same as the benchmark SPD pedals that's been around for decades with wide, open-ended tabs that allow easy entry and security when clipped in. The open design allows muck to flow through, so it doesn't hamper your ability to engage in a hurry and you can get back in quickly after an impromptu hike-a-bike or remounting after a sandy 'cross pit. The larger flat platforms on the inboard and outboard edges are also a boon to gravel riders looking to keep the sole of your shoe solid on the pedal, as are the two spindle lengths (52 and 55mm) to dial in your fit.

The XTR PD-M9100 Pedals come with SM-SH51 (single release) cleats and are also compatible with SM-SH56 (multi-release) cleats. They have chromoly spindles and spin on sealed bearings. The tension of the retention mechanism can be adjusted via a hex screw on the back of each pedal on both sides.

Sharper than they loook

I've put it through the wringer
5' 10"

As pedals, they do their job very well and feel smooth and lightweight. Nothing to complain about there. However, the outside edge of the pedal (the section of the body in-line with the pedal axle) is an absolute shin/ankle/thigh demolisher... it has a bit of a duckbill shape meaning it has two sharper-than-necessary edges to catch skin. Somewhat upsetting on as pricey a pair as these

Great pedals - easy to engage

I've used it several times

The classic XT or XTRpedals are great and engage - never any issues and are durable - either version has the best overall performance - highly recommended

Old Faithful

I've put it through the wringer

What else is there to say about the most rock solid pedals is cycling? The XTR's sacrifice some durability for weight savings but are still reliable. I went with the XTR for my wife's Juliana Quincy CC gravel bike. The bike is very light for a gravel set up and only made sense to continue with that design. In my opinion pedals and wheels are the two best places to save weight on a bike. Worth the extra money on a premium bike. That being said XT's still a fantastic option.

They work and work well

I've used it several times

These pedals just work! I've really put them through a lot of abuse recently in mud, sand, dirt, and rocks and have had no issues whatsoever.
