Race day is all about maximum output and maximum efficiency—putting everything you've trained for into the race, and leaving it all out on the racecourse. The new XTR Race pedals connect riders to their bike like never before, maximizing the renowned strength and stiffness of XTR cranks with complementary XTR Race pedals, which use wider bearing placement for ultimate rigidity under load. These new pedals boast four times the shoe/pedal contact area as the previous generation XTR pedal, helping channel every ounce of effort to the rear wheel.
This refined design retains all the time-tested and race-proven functionality SPD is famous for, and adds a slimmer axle profile to reduces weight and increase mud shedding capability. This new pedal also provides a lower and more biomechanically correct platform height, which more efficiently transfers power into the drivetrain while picking up precious millimetres of ground clearance at the same time.
Simply put: XTR Race SPD is the most efficient and controllable race-day pedal Shimano has ever produced
The racers choice for generations, the original SPD pedal design has been highly evolved into its lightest and most efficient form. PD-M980 reduces pedal height while increasing pedal to shoe contact

Пользуюсь несколько лет. Крепкие и долговечные, но плохо работают в грязи/снегу. Ну и дорогие.

Rated 1 out of 5 My second pair in two years are now showing the same problem
I see others have had the same problem - they start leaking and I guess soon my second pair will split apart during riding as my first pair.
I think I'll go for the XT model this time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BikeGod Very Disappointing....badly made and very expensive!
The previous incarnations of this pedal were and still are working very well. This XTR pedal is strange as I find my foot unclipping for no reason. This usually coincides with a dangerous and technical section of trail. Add to that.... a crack in the spindle and this is a No No of a pedal at a high price! I have found that my confidence with these pedals is so low that I am about to replace them with XT's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Soulmonkey Beautiful pedal, poorly executed
Very disappointed with these pedals, a real let down for XTR. I've had three sets now, replaced under warranty by CRC (who have been very good about sorting this by the way, not their fault). My third set has just developed the same fault.
It's the same as all the others here - the seals leak where the spindle meets the body, eventually this leads to play and creaking/cracking noises.
No good, shimano must do better than this for flagship XTR products! A full recall should be done for the company to really save face here, otherwise my trust in Shimano quality control will be severely compromised.
Very sad about this as I have other xtr products which perform faultlessly, but no doubt that this is a serious design flaw in an otherwise beautifully designed and functioning pedal.
