When your riding is all about maximum output and efficiency, putting everything you've trained for into practice, XTR Race Pedals need to be on your bike. Shimano's top-end XTR Race pedals connect you to your steed like never before, maximizing all of your strength. To achieve this feat, they use the famous SPD bindings with wider bearing placement for the ultimate rigidity under load. Plus, these pedals boast a ton of shoe/pedal contact area to channel every ounce of effort to the rear wheel. And the slim profile adds ground clearance, reduces weight and increases mud-shedding capability.
The durability alone amazes me about these pedals. I can't tell you how many times I have fallen and skidded out on the pedal. Barely a scratch. As well as the clip tension is very adjusted getting to the right tightness per rider preference.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
