Shimano XT M8020 Trail Wide Platform Pedals
XT SPD's are designed to take the rigours of off-road competition whilst also being perfect for cross country trail riding. This XT trail pedal is ideally suited to tackle single track and ultra-technical descents with control and confidence.
- The large integrated cage provides excellent pedal to shoe contact increasing stability and control
- Lightweight and high performance using a forged alloy body, chrome-moly axle and a revised cleat interface for increased stability
- Beautifully constructed with a strong and slender spindle, using an 8mm Allen wrench mounting system
- Slim oval axle body housing sheds mud efficiently and reduces stiction
- Sealed cartridge axle system for reliability and simplified low maintenance
- Easy entry system and tension adjustment provides plenty of support and holds the cleat firmly in place
Shimano's venerable XT group got hit so thoroughly with the redesign hammer for 2016 that the effects are apparent even outside of the usual tweaks to derailleurs and shifters. XT options like the wheels, crank, and cassette have gotten wider across the rims, Q-factor, and gear range, respectively, and the XT PD-M8020 Trail Pedals followed suit. Shimano's revised trail racing pedals are perhaps less changed than the rest of the XT kit but for two key dimensions: their platform is 3. 3mm wider for an 11. 7% increase in pedal platform size as compared to their predecessors, the M785s. Other than that increase in the platform and the obligatory aesthetic redesign, the pedals remain largely unchanged. 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 2016 Trail 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.
