Shimano invented SPD to meet the needs of a growing frontier lifestyle called MTB. By eliminating toe-clips and integrating the pedal and outsole into a single, unified power-transfer system, Shimano changed the industry - boosting not only power to the pedal, but also the rider's control over increasingly adventurous styles of riding. Today there's no single MTB style, and no single SPD pedal to match. It's all over the landscape, ranging from fast-paced XC racing to steep, rocky, wet, and muddy trail riding. Shimano SPD pedals are more than just keeping up - they're driving you forward. The legacy of in-the-dirt dependability and sheer endurance continues as shoe and pedal designs evolve to meet the needs of your personal riding style. Systems-engineered. Rider-tuned. Find your fit.
Adjustable bindings allow the cleat tension to be set to each rider's preference.
Off-road pedals must be able to take a hammering under all kinds of riding conditions. That's why Shimano has consciously resisted the trend towards ultra-light off-road pedals that compromise durability and reliability.
SPD pedals use a cartridge bearing unit which seals out dirt and moisture and greatly reduces the need for maintenance.
A large pedal to shoe contact area gives ultimate control and efficient power transfer.
An open binding mechanism allows mud and debris to be flushed out when the rider steps in. The oval-shaped axle body housing and slimmer axle unit on the PD-M9000/M9020 pedals are the latest refinement of this design.
