Description

Shimano's Workhorse MTB Pedal

An incredible value in an offroad clipless pedal from Shimano! The PD-M520 SPD pedal features adjustable release tension and includes a set of SH51 SPD cleats with 4 degrees of float. While they only weigh slightly more than the higher-end XT and XTR pedals from Shimano, they boast all of the same features and the same high-grade performance at a fraction of the price. These pedals will serve you well and won't break the bank. The dual-sided mechanism lets you easily clip in with a simple step, without looking down at your shoes

Features:

  • Fluorine-coated binding claws allow for easy entry and release
  • Pedals are dual-sided for easy entry
  • Low-maintenance sealed bearing cartridge axles
  • Dual-sided tension adjustment
  • Open design avoids clogging
  • Strong Cro-Moly axle
  • Sealed cartridge bearings
  • Available in Black or White
  • Compatible with Shimano SPD cleats (one pair of SM-51 single release included)
  • 380g/pair

    Bought these pedals for use with fixed gear where I need to engage the trailing foot asap after push-off. These do the job perfectly - as the left foot comes off the ground, I can clip in almost immediately and attain maximum power - essential in heavy traffic. Single-sided pedals are fine for a regular freewheel where you can coast, but not here.

    Solid pedals at a great price. I�ve got bikes running these and another with the XT�s which are quite a bit more expensive and only a handful of grams lighter. I have no need to buy a weight savings so little when really a couple of rides and a couple fewer beers will be a cheaper and easier way to lose those grams. In practice I cannot tell any difference and have since bought more of these 520s when needing to add pedals to the quiver.

    The Shimano PD-M520 pedals are an awesome and affordable gravel pedal. The pedal is very well made and I have never had an issue or problem with them. Maintenance and service is easily done. I find these pedals just as good as the higher end XT/XTR pedals. Very please with this purchase.

    Clipless is not for me.
    by Nick S

    I bought this as an entry level clipless pedal, and felt the value was good. After riding it around the block a few times, I really liked it. However, when I rode it to work, my toes would go numb. I tried adjusting cleat position and seat height to no avail. This could because of my casual cycling shoes (Shimano CT5) I was using did not have a stiff enough bottom, rather than the pedal's fault, but needless to say, I stopped using both of them.

    My only complaint about this product is that it's impossible to return because the clips and pedals will never be like new after first use. I would have returned them, but it's honestly just the nature of the product. You can't return it.

    For a bottom of the barrel pedal in this range, they sure do work great. Yeah they might be a few grams heavier than their more expensive counterparts, but when your CX bike is covered in mud, grams don't matter anymore. Clip in and out each time, no binding, no issues. Adjustable tension too!

    These are my first clipless pedals for my mountain bike. They work great on the rail trails I ride most of the time. I have been using clipless on my road bike for years. It's great to be using clipless on both road and gravel.

    I bought these to save my Garmin power pedals from indoor training where I have power through the smart trainer. I enjoy the dual sided SPD and am considering converting my Vector 3's (Look) to Rally XC bodies (SPD) for the future. Paired these with a pair of fizik shoes. Very happy with the results.

    I've not used this type pedal before but I really love them. I'm use to the Look type pedal. These SPD's are very easy to clip in and out of, light weight, and float is keen. Highly recommend these.
