Rated 2 out of 5 by Curly Good but not tough enough
I bought these 12 months ago. They cover both options of good spd with a wider platform when needed. I knew they were a little on the heavy side but generally prepared to live with that for flexibility.
I have found since that there are not tough enough (only used on Trails and Cross Country) they outer cage components have failed twice. Both times the connections holding the outer cage (set of screws and spindles) have fallen out.
I managed to find an online supplier who can replace them but 8 weeks later they were showing same issue on the other pedal.
The other issue with these is that they naturally collect mud which becomes an issue if you are out on 20-40 miler and have to constantly kick of the mud to clip back in.
Shame really as the idea is good , just needs to be executed better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kjetims Overall a good pedal
Nicely built, functions really good. A bit heavy compared to cageless options. Good traction when you miss the click-in.

Если Вы только пересаживаетесь на "контакты", то идеальный вариант.
Платформа позволяет быстро найти замок. Тяжелые, но и ударов не боятся. На данный момент я проехал 5000 за полгода, добавляя каплю масла каждые 250-300 км на пружины замка.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent SPD pedals
Having that stuff for almost 10 years on my MTB bike. Perfect clipping, excellent adjustment and reliability. No service required, even in mud conditions. Low wearing found despite of long life (moderate usage during the year, mostly summer/fall). Cannot find better, will buy new pair for my new custom bike I hope.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Tough platform but loose caps
Bought these as wanted something tougher than the plastic platform version which don't take the hits. Have smashed these a few times and the metal platform is tough as. However, have lost end caps in both pedals twice. From what I've read its a common problem. Trying the XT Trail this time.

Almost 10 years of occasional riding. No issues - mud, dust, rain. Don't know if modern series of M545 still have the same durability but hope so.

If You are thinking on bying this for downhill so don't, they will fall apart if You scrub a rock or something. But they Work great for xc, You should rather get the ones with plastic cover for DH.
