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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mads36 Gives a great feel for the bike
Used to ride with eggbeaters. These are much better! They give you a way better feel for the bike especially the rear wheel. Plus they look cool :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by zekabl Хорошая альтернатива Time и Look!
Относительно не дорогие, хорошо собраны, с весом только небольшой пролет. Пожалуй, самый лучшие из SPD. Exustar легче, но ощущения не те. Хорошо чувствуется увеличенная площадь контакта педаль/ботинок.

Tacto en el anclaje y desanclaje muy bueno. Tenía antes los Xt pero estos son más finos y algo más ligeros.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Air9 leak grease
After 6 weeks and 300 km on my mtb these pedals have started to leak grease onto the pedal spindle. On closer examination the rubber seals had become unseated from the inside bearings.
