A pedal is a device that helps the rider power the bike by providing resistance. The Nordictrack S22i has a built in pedal that provides resistance to the rider. This pedal is called a clip in pedal.
The purpose of the clip in pedal is to provide resistance to the rider so they can power the bike. The Nordictrack S22i has a built in clip in pedal that is adjustable. The rider can adjust the amount of resistance that the pedal provides.
The pedal also has a built in safety feature that prevents the rider from pedaling too hard and causing the bike to tip over.
20 Best Clip In Pedals For Nordictrack S22I
1. Shimano SH56 Multi Release SPD Bike Cleats
Release the cleats from the pedals by twisting your heels in any direction.
Cold forged and specially heat treated to increase durability and rigidity for heavy use even under severe conditions.
Fits most Shimano SPD model pedals (will not work with M858). Picture shows mounting plate that is not included with the Shimano packaging. The mounting plate is not needed unless you have stripped out the threads in the plates of your shoe.
I am new to clipless riding and I was concerned about not feeling comfortable quickly clipping in and out of my pedals. I purchased these cleats and Shimano Xc1 shoes from REI. A member of the REI staffed offered to install the cleats to my shoes which was great.
I use these with Shimano Dual Sided EH-500 pedal thinking I would want the option of flipping the pedal over and using the flat side as I learned to clip in. I tested all of this out on a stationary bike and within minutes I felt very comfortable clipping in and out so the next day I put the pedals on my road bike.
Havent used the flat side of the pedal yet, that is how easy I find these cleats to use, though if a friend hops on my bike it is still nice to have a flat pedal option. I cannot praise these enough for beginners.
I was new to SPD pedals, and had a problem releasing from them, even on the lightest setting. If I put some effort into it, I could release, but it wasn’t always convenient or easy, particularly when coming to a stop.
I fell over at least once per day, and was afraid to take the bike on challenging trails that I had done before with platform pedals. This went on daily for 2 weeks, and I went into the store to look at other options.
An employee recommended these cleats, so I thought I’d give them a try. I can release very easily now. They say that they can’t be used for full circumference pedaling, which is why I didn’t buy them initially, but I find I’m still able to do that with no problem, meaning they don’t release by lifting up.
In the two weeks that I’ve had them, I’ve still fallen twice. Once was coming to a sudden stop when I wasn’t expecting to, and the other was when when I released my left foot, but then fell to the right.
Even so, they are much better than the standard cleats, with which I was falling every day. People say I just need to give them more time and get used to them, which I will do.
Great sturdy cleats for the price. The cleats fit perfectly in a shimano pedal or other ones that specify SPD pedals. I would recommend getting the cleats for anyone wanting cleats and have used it in multiple long rides.
They were easy to install and stay on very well. I had made the mistake of not tightening the cleats the first time and they slid off to the bottom of the shoes. However, after correctly doing it, I was able to get the cleats to sit tightly on the shoes with the help of the rugged part of the cleats.
Carbon composite pedals with platforms designed for world-class roadies (like you). The wide carbon platform offers a large contact area with your shoe for maximum power transfer. A seamless pedal-cleat interface maintains the efficient transfer, even under extreme pedal loads and all-out hammering.
Carbon composite bodies. Chromoly steel spindles. Stainless steel pedal body plates reduce flex and wear on the pedal body. Wide bearing placement for stable, uniform load distribution. Adjustable entry and release tension settings.
Low-maintenance sealed cartridge axle unit. Low-profile, open design for easy access and cleat adjustment.
These pedals are a great value. They are light, made very well and position for clip-in very well. I am a regular road rider but I do not race. The price is right. I ordered them after having a bit of trouble clipping into a new set of Look Keo 2 Max pedals.
I’ve been riding clip in’s since the 90s, mainly Look. However the new Key 2s had a small “lip” at the front edge that always seemed to snag my shoes/cleats. I looked carefully at the Shimano PD-R-7000s and the lip seemed smaller.
It was and now the problems getting in from a standing start are nearly eliminated. The one thing that is a bit of a problem is the axle length. I wish the offset between the pedal and edge of the crank was a bit longer.
I am getting used to the closeness but it is just an adjustment problem on my part. A slightly longer axle can be ordered but it increases the price. I highly recommend these pedals for training and touring on the road, including with climbs.
These will be going on my new bike, when it finally arrives. When I bought them, Sigma were offering the best price for them. The pedals are quite solid, but not actually heavy, thanks to the pedal platform being carbon.
The tension adjuster is clearly readily accessible and the indicator is clear to see. The tension can be dialled back to allow clipping in and out with little effort or tightened up for a more secure seating.
The set come complete with a set of yellow Shimano cleats (6 degrees of float) and all of the bolts and washers. I can well appreciate why these pedals get such a good rating from others.
The Shimano Dura-Ace PD-R9100 Pedals takes the time-tested Shimano road pedal and gives it an even larger platform. SPD-SL pedals guarantee a reliable and efficient connection between you and the bike.
Extra-wide platforms offer maximum power transfer and comfort, while the stainless steel wear-resistant top plates ensure durability. The pedals feature excellent pedaling efficiency with optimized balance of weight and rigidity, an injection molded carbon composite body, adjustable entry and release tension settings, and wider bearing placement for smooth rotation.
Includes Shimano SM-SH12 blue cleats that offer minimal +- 1 degrees of float and mounting hardware. Standard 3-bolt pattern. 224 grams. Sold as pair.
Unless your daily bread depends on your race resume, or you just won the lottery, saving money in areas where it doesn’t compromise performance is just a smart choice. The Shimano PD-M540 SPD Pedals include many of the same features of the XTR pedals at a fraction of the cost.
The open binding of the PD-M540 Pedals means you’ll never fumble to clip in no matter how tumultuous the terrain. The dual-sided design further facilitates entry. Additionally, it allows the pedals to remain mud-free for consistent performance.
The spindles are durable chromoly and the bearings are sealed to further dependability. The cleat design of the PD-M540 recesses the cleat into your shoe so that if your shoes have a tread, the cleat sits flush and makes walking easy.
They are ideal for both trail riding and commuting.
This is a good quandary sturdy pedal that should suit all but the very beginner. Easy to install with the correct Allen wrench and quite adjustable to individual preferences. Being double sided means there’s always a mechanism to clip in to.
The design means that it clears mud etc while still offering security. Fairly light but priced for the non-professional. Can be serviced but you need a special tool (which is very cheap). These pedals come with genuine Shimano cleats (SH 51) and these are not cheap so a bargain to get both together.
There is enough pedal to use if you miss clipping in first time. For the price, this is a great pedal for non-road race cycling and, I feel, easier to come to terms with than a road pedal. I use these pedals on an MTB for mainly on-road use and I feel safe in that i won’t slip from the pedal but I unclipping is fast and easy in traffic.
A slightly cheaper version of the XT pedals I have been using for the last 20 years. The design is faultless- they work in all conditions – and keep on working! They are virtually maintenance free- just clean the clip in area with a brush and water to remove dirt and grit after each ride – bearings can be regreased – but this shouldn’t need doing often unless you jet wash the seals and force water in.
The tension can be set to release the foot with just a slight lateral twist – which means putting the foot down in an emergency is quick and saves falling off. Quality Shimano build – a great pedal – and built to last even with the inevitable pedal strikes which happen on rocky terrain.
Been using the Shimano off road pedal on my road bikes for over 20 years now, no problems. The double sided pedal works with all shoes, not just road shoes or off road shoes. With the indentation of the SPD cleat sometimes being used in shoes today to walk without walking on the cleat means some shoes are not compatible with road cleats.
both my road shoes and off road shoes fit this two sided off road pedal. Bearing wear is slight, probably 25,000 miles before signs of wear. Two sided is faster to clip into, and you have a backup if one side fails.
Featuring a durable steel axle, sealed bearings and an open, mud-shedding design, the PD-M520 does the job of a high end pedal at an entry level price. Includes one pair of two-bolt SPD cleats. Included in Box: Pedal x 2, SM-SH51 Cleats, User’s Manual x 1.
Description: Top Features of the MKS Sylvan Road Pedals Cro-moly axle Quality bearings Alloy body Flat Pedals Flat pedals are ideal for those not wanting to use a clipless pedal system, they provide a large grippy platform for normal shoes to grip too.
You can fit toe clips and straps to some flat pedals to benefit from pulling upwards when pedalling on hills or accelerating, these tend to be more for road/commuting use. Generally the main use for most types of this pedal now is Freeride or Downhill where quick placement and removal of the foot is essential.
About the MKS brand MKS is Japan’s major manufacturer of conventional pedals and accessories. They only make their products to a very high standard, as proven by the NJS/Keirin approved mark found on some of their products.
MKS products are built to be used, will last well and prove a worthwhile investment.
I have a bike built up on a Surly Pacer frame and its made of small-diameter chromemoly tubes which dictates a vintage Schwinn road bike aesthetic, hence my purchase of these pedals. Im a very casual, recreational rider, not very athletic anymore– so I can get away with this pedal.
It is slippery compared to your typical shin burger screw-studded platform pedal. I used to have a dual-sided Shimano M324 SPD/flat pedal and the flat side of the Shimano was grippier and more comfortable than the MKS, although it was sometimes inconvenient to find the flat side.
On the plus side, the MKS Sylvan pedal aces the vintage aesthetic I was after, and is beautiful to look at and decorates my Surly and works well enough for me, but I doubt it would be suitable for anybody who has even halfway serious biking aspirations/pretensions beyond pedaling in a leisurely way to the coffee shop.
These pedals look good with their shiny polished finish and retro rat-trap design. they work with toe clips, but still grip very well thanks to the serrations. The cup and cone bearings come out of the box well-adjusted, unlike most other pedals that come ridiculously overtightned.
The only weakness in these pedals is the lack of sealing, which seems rather imprtant for a touring bike. For a retro pedal, however, that is excusable, since vintage bike parts don’t generally come with good sealing.
Great choice (I’d say one of the best if retro-looking is important to you) all-around for your vintage/retro road bike.
For cyclists who prefer toeclips and straps to clipless pedals, these offerings from MKS are an excellent and much needed alternative to the superb but discontinued Campagnolo originals. The MKS version is solidly made, with good smooth bearings.
You’ll need nuts and bolts to attach toeclips, because the side plates aren’t threaded for bolts as per the Campagnolo originals.
The Shimano XT M8100 pedals are light and stiff MTB-pedals that provide optimal support when mountain biking. They are also more durable than their XT M8000 predecessors, so you can enjoy them for longer! Extra durable Compared to its XT M8000 predecessor, this XT M8100 pedal is even more durable.
Shimano achieved this by adding an additional seal in the pedal axle, so the bearings are better protected against water, salt and sand. Performance support These pedals have a large contact area. Thanks to this large surface, the transmission of power is greatly improved and you can cycle even faster with the same energy.
In addition, the larger surface area makes cycling more comfortable and reduces foot discomfort during long rides. Good sand and mud removal This pedal has an open structure. This allows sand and mud to be dispersed, which means you will be able to click in even in muddy conditions.
These kind of middle shelf pedals failed with in the first 200 miles. The non drive side was badly spinning off of its spindle. Ive taken it out and adjusted it twice now and its still has a noticeable amount of play.
The engagement is fair. Im used to a bit more positive feed back but it does seem to shed dirt and mud easily. Not ultra light wight. The large nut that disengages the spindle soft and very damageable.
There was heavy scoring and wear of the engagement surfaces after only four days of riding. Theres excessive preload in the drive side bearings. 100 dollar mistake.
These pedals are terrific. I have ridden them for at least a year now. They spin so much easier than any cartridge bearing pedal such as Crankbrothers. I had Crankbrothers Egg Beaters and Candys for year before buying Shimano pedals.
CBs were always a bit of trouble. These XT and XTRs are super easy to service. You can remove the pedal cage while the spindle stays in the crank. Wipe out the old grease and fill it up. Screw the pedal cage back on the spindle and away you go.
Takes about 10 minutes. The seals tend to push out of the cage onto the spindle but that is insignificant. Just replace the grease once or twice a year and they will last for years.
The XTR M9000/M9020 is now a generation old since the M9100 series came to market. One can now find sales on the old stock that remains, bringing the price for XTR gear down to mortal man territory. I bought the FC-M9020-B crankset on sale and paired it with a 32 tooth XTR chainring (SM-CRM91), also heavily discounted, and put it on my Stumpjumper 6Fattie.
Makes my 11 speed drivetrain fully XTR save the SLX cassette. Very sharp looking. The drive train is quiet and shifting is smooooooth. When I make the move to 12 speed, I’ll keep this crank in service and replace the chainring with a 3rd party vendors 12 speed specific chainring saving some cash while retaining that one of a kind XTR quality.
With the release of Shimano’s new XT group comes updated pedals as well. Though these cross-country oriented pedals aren’t vastly different than the previous generation, that’s a good thing, because they were already really good to begin with.
What has changed is a slightly wider platform for better stability under your riding shoes, as well as an offset binding that improves mud-shedding capabilities.
With the durable and shockproof Shimano XT M8120 Trail pedals, you’ll experience a sense of control unmatched by most other pedals. Robust construction, great power transfer These Shimano XT PD-M8120 trail pedals are long-lasting and have an extra large surface area.
This ensures that you have more surface area for improved stability and power transfer. That leads not only to increased control, but also better acceleration. It’s your ideal partner for the rough jobs! Bigger platform, innovative design Compared to its XT M8020 predecessor, the surface area of the platform has become larger.
This gives you a larger support area and more control over your bike. Also, its surface has been designed in an innovative way, which enhances the feel with both All Mountain and Enduro shoes. Finally, the axle and bearings of this mountain bike pedal have become even more durable, so you can enjoy these fine pedals for even longer!.
I ride mostly on roads but I’ve been using SHIMANO PD-M530 pedals which are generally classified as a mountain or trail bike pedal. I’ve tried Shimano road pedals but I’ve had problems clipping in to them when I start on an up hill.
Definitely requires younger legs than mine to get up enough momentum to give time to get your un-clipped foot into the pedal. The PD-M530 (and the PD-M8120) pedals along with a cycling shoe with a lugged sole and recessed cleat are so much easier to clip in to.
They’re double sided so no worries about which side of the pedal is up when your foot contacts the pedal. And because the shoe has lugs you’re much less likely for your foot to slide off the pedal if you don’t get it just right the first time.
During the brief time I tried true road pedals there were two things I did like about them. One is the pedal force is spread out over a wider area of the shoe as opposed to an MTB pedal. On long rides this makes a difference – your foot gets more tired with the MTB pedal.
The other is pedal weight. The PD-M8120 spreads the pedal force across the shoe very much like a road pedal. I can really feel the difference compared to my old Shimano PD-M530’s. Whereas PD-M8120’s are not as light as road pedals, they are lighter than the M530’s.
So bottom line, much easier to clip in, lighter than old MTB pedals, and very comfortable on long rides. Highly recommended!.
I’m a former bike shop employee and cyclocross racer. I average about 4000 miles a year on the bike and this year will be over 5000 miles. I’ve used road and mountain pedals from everyone and I still prefer Shimano SPD mountain pedals for all of my bikes.
These XT pedals are bulletproof, double-sided, easy to get in and out of, have adjustable tension for the cleats and the cleats themselves are easy to walk in with mountain shoes from any company. The pedals are high quality, good looking and maintenance free.
You really can’t go wrong and the larger platform provides additional stability and addresses the myth that “road pedals” are more stable. The soles of bike shoes are already stiff and the extra couple millimeters of width on road-specific shoes literally does nothing for real world stability.
Using Shimano mountain cleats on all of your bikes also eliminates the need for additional shoes and cleats, and makes walking around when not on the bike a lot easier. I also have used XTR pedals and I prefer the XT 8120s because of the addition of the platform, the smoothness of the click getting in and out and the durability.
Extra-wide platforms expand the contact surface between cleats and pedals, for efficient power transfer and a solid feeling when you stand on them. Whatever your road-riding level, these are good things.
Lightweight composite body. Durable, replaceable stainless steel plate reduces flex and body wear. Extra-large entry target for easier engagement. Wide bearing placement for stable, uniform load distribution.
Supplied with SM-SH11 cleat with 6?? of float for comfort. Excellent for riders whose feet move naturally during their pedal stroke. Optional cleats include fixed SM-SH10 and front-center-pivoting SM-SH12.
I was new to clipless pedals when I got back into cycling last year. I got these ones primarily because they were relatively inexpensive. Overall, they are great for road cycling (I averaged ~80 miles a weeks over the season with 2-4 rides) and found that these pedals were super easy.
The adjustable tension works great and makes for easy in and out. Since I wasn’t racing the tighter tension settings were not necessary for my use. Held my feet in place well as I don’t think I slipped out once all year.
Weight didn’t really matter to me since I was just cycling to get in shape and pass the time.
It’s held up real good. As with the best gear, it simply fades away and is out of your thoughts, simply doing its job as you get out there to ride, ride after ride. I now have well over 1500 miles on this and it has not given any trouble whatsoever.
I did upgrade from the one just below this in shimano’s product line and while there may be a difference in weight, it’s not perceivable once you’re riding.
Shimano’s venerable XT group sees updates from year to year, as advancements from the XTR group trickle down to the sweet spot of cost and performance. Shimano’s revised trail racing pedals feature a wider platform to carry you across undulating trails.
Four degrees of float, two-sided entry, bombproof durability of the body and sealed cartridge bearings, and simple, muck-clearing cleat-to-pedal interface — all the features that recommend Shimano’s SPDs as the default do-it-all pedals are still present.
As with the previous model, the M8120 is slightly heavier and more substantial than the XC race version, but the trade-off is a wider, more stable platform for confident responsiveness whether you’re dropping your own hammer or clearing techy rock shelves on a climb with jerks and hops.
They’ve also got a bit more survivability in the event of a pedal strike.
The Shimano PD-EH500 pedals are suitable for both Shimano shoes with SPD connection and sports shoes. The flat side is provided with extra grip due to the rough design. The click side is spring tension adjustable and contains the light Action spring system for novice cyclists.
Suitable for the all-round cyclist The PD-EH500 combination pedals have a beautiful design and can withstand the rougher work. These purebred touring pedals have a large contact surface so that you have a stable platform and can easily transfer power, even with normal shoes! The other side of this pedal features a clipless SPD mechanism.
If you like being clipped in on longer touring rides, these are the pedals for you. The tension can be adjusted to looser or tighter on these pedals as desired. Extremely durable and easy to maintain These quality pedals have a good finish and are made of durable aluminum and Chromoly steel.
The sealed cartridge bearings also ensure that dirt and grim can’t get in, which extends the pedals’ lifespan. In the unlikely event that something happens to these pedals, they are also easy to maintain!.
I’ve only had these pedals for a little bit but I already know that this pedal is for the long term. I am not a terribly serious rider, I like to ride and really enjoy it for good workouts and touring around.
I put these on my gravel bike so I can ride to a spot, get off the bike, run around, and bike home without having to bring two pairs of shoes. I also got these to clip in on days I just want to ride.
The platform side is awesome, the cleat part allows me to push and pull in my stroke without my foot moving or even feeling close to falling off. The clip side is easy clip in and out. It’s weighted perfectly where it doesn’t flip if I take my foot off the pedal.
I have experienced that flip on other pedals and very much no likey. This pedal is great for what I use it for.
Overall a very nice set of pedals – the ability to clip-in for a longer road ride while flipping the pedal for use with running shoes to cycle to a trail head or the local store is nice. These are being used on a gravel bike but had a similar road-specific pair that lasted for years.
If Shimano included 2 sets of cleats (56s and 51s) it would earn a 5-star review. I’d forgotten the SH56 is a multi-release cleat – you don’t feel nearly as locked in as with the SH51 cleat I use on my mountain bike.
For recreational/fitness riding, these can’t be beat if you’re a fan of SPD systems.
The Look Keo Carbon Blade Ceramic road pedal blends technology and craftsmanship to deliver the peak of performance and quality. Ceramic bearings guarantee consistent, durable performance with no corrosion.
An 18% reduction of frictional forces applied to ceramic bearings ensure a lifespan 4 to 6 times longer than standard steel bearings. The cromo axle is guaranteed waterproof by IPX7 (full immersion) and IPX8 (rotating pedal exposed to water jets) tests.
The larger the contact patch of the pedal, the more efficient the power transfer. However, the larger the contact patch the greater the weight. Look engineers have worked tirelessly to finetune design and reduce unnecessary surfaces to create the sweetspot for optimal transfer of power, providing an end result with the best weight to contact patch ratio on the market today.
Blade technology The “blade lever” system is 20% lighter than a standard spring lever system. The carbon blade fluidly bends to the shape and volume of the pedal improving aerodynamics while also revolutionising engagement offering a firm and secure fit.
The carbon blade is available in various stiffness options, 12, 16 or 20 (20 sold separately).
Unbelievably frustrating. Bought these to replace my faultless Look Keo Max 2, i. e. I treated myself to some expensive pedals. But I should have stuck with what I had. Under load, each pedal has a niggling clicking noise, proper audible to you and everyone else around you.
Really gets on your nerves (also makes you think something is wrong with your bottom bracket/cranks initially). Everything else about the product oozes quality and the look of it is ace. But you just cant escape the noise.
Begrudgingly put my Keo Max 2 back on the bike and going to attempt a refund.
Lightweight, aerodynamic, powerful, the new KEO BLADE CARBON has all the assets to allow you to improve and optimize your performance until victory is yours. It is for these reasons that KEO BLADE CARBON is the unanimous choice of many champions who have made it a weapon of choice in the conquest of their greatest achievements.
Its new design completely integrates the blade for unrivaled aerodynamics. Equipped with a carbon body and blade, the Blade Carbon is available in a Ti version (titanium spindle) that weighs a mere 95g per pedal, or in a CrMo version (chromoly spindle) for a weight of 110g per pedal.
It is available in three tension release levels: 12,16 and 20. The spindle of the new CARBON BLADE has been completely redesigned. It is built around an oversized axle and spindle that passes through internal roller and needle bearings located directly under the pedal platform.
This new construction saves approximately 2 watts at 100 rpm. The platform of the CARBON BLADE is fitted with a 67mm-wide stainless steel plate, optimizing the cleat/pedal contact areas, regardless of pedaling angle.
Using a carbon body lightens the weight of the pedal and provides an additional gain in stiffness for improved power transfer.
Thanks to standard Shimano procedure, improvements made on 9000-series XTR pedals are inherited by the Shimano PD-T8000 2-Way Pedals! These 8000 XT pedals have a solid, low-profile platform to stand upon, enabling them to better transfer your effort to the rear wheel and not get in your way at other times.
Other features like offset bindings to improve mud shedding capabilities, which was the previous generation’s achilles heel, have become part of the T8000s ensemble. The Shimano PD-T8000 XT 2-Way Pedals use a stainless steel axle, bolts, retention springs, and bindings.
The body is made from aluminum, and the release tension is adjustable and the pedals offer 5 degrees of float. If you’re as serious about your commute as you are about your go-to mountain bike, then let the T8000 pedals guide the way to work as well as the trails.
This is my first time using “click in/out” pedals. I have been using cages for a long time on my commuter bike. I have started to do more long distances rides and wanted to up my game, so to speak. I am using them with Shimano SH-XC1 shoes, Shimano SM-SH56 cleats.
The pedals can use either SH56(came with the pedals) or SH51(I will be replacing the 56 with the 51, as I will do more “climbing” type biking). As a first time user(I watched a couple of Youtube videos on how to use click in’s), I practiced a couple of times holding onto something, then up and down the block and then a 10 mile ride in LA traffic.
I was really happy with how easy I was able to click in and out of the pedal when I need to. I did tighten the clips a little bit and still felt safe. The other reason I bought this pedal is that I can also use street shoes! Good price point for this pedal.
Got a new bike and was eager to try clipless pedals. I’ve used toe clips on my old mountain bike, but wanted to try clipping in on my new hybrid commuter. I chose these pedals because they are flat platforms on one side so I won’t have to always wear my cycling shoes.
Clipping in was easy the first time out. (I just had to remember to release before stopping!) I think these pedals are a great option if you’re learning to get comfortable with clipping in, though. In the future, I’ll likely upgrade to hybrid pedals with a “grippier” platform side, but these pedals work for now.
Typical high quality from Shimano, these pedals are perfect for any bike that you might choose to ride with or without cleated shoes. I have them on my gravel bike, which I would normally ride clipped in, but occasionally I take a more casual ride with my wife around the neighborhood.
They spin freely, and hang just right so that you can find the clip-in side without looking. With the included cleats they provide plenty of float, which I prefer. And there’s even an extra set of the grub screws in the box (which provide extra grip on the ‘flat’ side) for when they wear out.
The reflectors are removable if you choose to do so. I didn’t, they don’t look that dorky. The only negative (really a very minor annoyance, easily remedied), is that they come coated in a sticky grease, which I tried to wipe off thoroughly to prevent dirt and sand sticking to them.
Clipless pedals enhance control, confidence and the overall cycling experience. At first, clipping in can seem overwhelming. That’s why Shimano developed CLICK’R, the latest addition to the SPD family.
Step in to all the benefits and performance of being clipped in, without the learning curve of traditional clipless systems. With the comfort and versatility of athletic-style shoes, CLICK’R offers a highly-intuitive, user-friendly step-in system.
CLICK’R Easy In + Easy Out platform leads to a better cycling experience, with less fatigue, and more comfort. With Shimano claiming the new Click’R pedal requires 60% less effort clipping in and 62% less effort to release than the traditional SPD pedals (due to a lighter single spring design), there’s never been a better time to try it out for yourself.
Shimano’s XTR M9000 groupset marks a new era in function and design for their top-level parts. It’s interesting to note that with all these changes, the Shimano XTR M9000 Pedals are unchanged from the M980 pedals save for the color.
Why change They are still the finest MTB pedals available. There are none that blend so magically the attributes of sleek design, supreme function, feathery lightness, and nuclear-proof durability as Shimano XTR.
In comparison to older XTR M970 pedals, these M9000 pedals are 20g lighter, shed mud and debris better, and have four times greater surface area for shoe stability. The weight savings is a result of new spindle and body designs.
All superfluous material has been shaved away. In fact, the narrower spindle helps shed mud too. That smaller profile through the center of the pedal, as well as the offset retention mechanisms, creates more space for debris to get pushed through as you click into the pedal.
The slimmer axle has a wider bearing stance than XT pedals. This adds to greater pedal body stability and durability for the bearings. The black aluminum pedal body spins on sealed bearings around an ultra-tough, plated chromoly axle.
And like all SPD pedals, they have an adjustable retention system that can be set to your release preferences with a small hex key on the back of the mechanism – soft for easy release or firm for more security.
The Shimano XTR M9000 Pedals come with two-bolt SM-SH51 Single-Release cleats that offer 4 of float to allow some movement in your ankle as you pedal. They are also compatible with the easier-to-release SM-SH56 Multi-Release cleats.
Focus and determination defines you. You are streamlined and efficient. You embrace the most difficult challenges and refuse to give up. You never make excuses, you never stop trying. You conquer mountains from the bottom up, never satisfied with only the descent.
You crush the whole loop, every pedal stroke a relentless assault on gravity, your competitors and your personal records. Dripping with performance, the XT M8020 drivetrain will not only transfer every watt of energy from pedal to wheel.
Shimano invented SPD, so you wouldnt expect anything but the best from their latest XT pedal. Showing off a new design, the PD-M8020s with a 3. 3mm wider platform that increases stability compared to the previous generation.
The increased pedal-to-shoe contact area improves efficiency by 11. 7%. The wide platform adds stability and efficiency that ultimately leads to added control, more power and confidence when out on the trails.
The PD-M8020 is the culmination of Shimanos expertise in bearings, pedaling dynamics, and the reliability of SPD.
I have another older bike that has the older XT pd-785 pedals that have lasted at least 10+ years. The m8020 looks slightly wider design and feels just as well built. They are made in Malaysia. Id recommend them for those who are not counting weight.
These are great for riders who dont care to go flying high in the sky on the trails (platform pedals are probably more suitable for aggressive jumpers). Im not sure how well these clear mud, because where I have ridden in the south (SoCal and central Texas) you dont have to ride when it gets wet (e.
g. it doesnt rain THAT often). These are very high quality pedals, solid material and smooth mechanism. Thumbs up!.
This is my 4th set of SPD pedals. I have worn out the bearings on 2 pairs of the equivalent to M520’s. I ride about a 100k a week and commute year round in Toronto. I am in the downtown core with frequent stop and go – a lot of clip-ins and outs.
I mounted these on my old mountain bike. I have all my three contact points – pedals, saddle, and grips – with upgraded equipment, all from MEC. I have owned the M8020 for about 2 months. These are excellent pedals.
Smooth pedalling – these very nice sealed bearings are noticeably better than my previous less expensive SPD’s. Sealed bearings will withstand the rain and salt much better than regular bearings. The pedals are balanced so that one side remains up making to easy to clip-in on starts.
My shoes remains firmly clipped-in, yet are easy to clip-out. The larger frame as noted by other reviewers makes it easy to pedal on starts without having to clip-in. It is easy to adjust the tension of the retaining spring.
I subtracted one star for Value because the pedals come with the black single release cleats – which you can only clip-out in one direction. I have older multi-release cleats in which you can clip-out in any direction.
The difference is significant and in emergency stops life saving. At this price point Shimano give me a new set of the good cleats. Of note is these pedals require a 8mm hex wrench to install. All my other pedals use a more common 6mm hex wrench.
The pedals came in lovely and classy packaging. Overall a nice pair of pedals. I am very pleased with their performance.
The Shimano PD-RS500 road cycling pedal provides an ideal platform for novice riders. Tuned with reduced spring tension, the PD-RS500 maintains a secure connection with the cleat but allows for easier engagement and release than pedals aimed for more experienced riders.
The larger platform on the body of the PD-RS500 also provides more visual real estate to spot when learning the fine motor-skills needed to use clipless pedals. The extra-wide platform increases power transfer when pedaling and can reduce hot-spots under foot that can result when using narrow cycling pedals.
Although Shimano considers the PD-RS500 for novice riders, the easy-in, easy-out design makes it useful for any riders needing a more user-friendly pedaling experience. Shimano controls wear and tear to the PD-RS500 by incorporating steel plates at the sides of the pedal-shoe interface.
These pedals are fine. I have been using them for 3 weeks, riding 1-hour per day. Clipping in and out is generally very easy, and the ride is quiet and smooth. One note is that they seem to balance with the clip side down, so getting clipped back in while moving takes some fiddling and concentration.
As consumers, we must unite to kill off using the term “clipless pedals” for this type of pedal. These pedals are the kind we most definitively clip INTO. That is the whole point of the technology. The only other kinds of pedals are flat (no clips) and the toe-cage type, which also have no real clip.
At most, a cinch strap. Those are basically toe-holster pedals.
At first I was afraid, I was petrified. But then installed these pedals on my bike, strapped on my new cleats and I took off like a cyclist in The Tour de France! At mile 14. 5 miles I decided to stop for a protein bar and some water.
I came to a complete stop and that’s when I realized I had forgotten to unclip. Over I went and into the soft cold mud I landed! I didn’t even have time to let go of the handlebars! I wasn’t hurt at all except for my ego.
I got back on that bike, waved at the spectators across the park that appeared concerned or amused and I took off to finish my race. Thanks Shimano!!!.
Just installed them on the indoor bike for my wife. She did a quick 5 min ‘ride’ to test them out and get the cleats fitted. She said she could already tell they will make a huge difference. The plan is to keep them on the stationary bike so she can get used to them and until the nice Spring weather lets us ride outside again, then ill put them on her road bike.
May it be a cycling tour to urban commutes to light-duty trail riding – the Shimano PD-EH500 SPD Pedals are a versatile bike pedal system that can do all that and more. On one side, you get the efficiency of riding with clip-less shoes, and on the other, you get the convenience of riding with street shoes.
Dual-sided for use with clip-less shoes compatible with SPD cleats, or street shoes. Sealed cartridge spindle for minimum maintenance. Adjustable cleat tension. Durable chromoly spindle. Lightweight aluminum body.
The conclusion of the clip in pedals for nordictrack s22i is that they are a great addition to the bike and make it much more comfortable to ride. They are easy to install and make the bike feel more stable.
The only downside is that they are a bit expensive.
