The Shimano XTR PD-M985 Trail SPD pedal is engineered for the specific needs of aggressive trail riders everywhere, with an open, mud-shedding design and large pedaling platform for ultimate control. The wider, more stable stance is backed up by widely braced bearings and nearly 10 times the effective contact area between the pedal platform and your shoes. This design delivers unparalleled control when clipped in, and a reliable platform for those inevitable "balancing act" moments that come with unpredictable trails. In addition, a lower platform height effectively moves your foot closer to the center of the axle for greater power transfer and efficiency. Cleats included.
