Thanks to standard Shimano procedure, improvements made on 9000-series XTR pedals are inherited by the Shimano XT M8000 Pedals! The 8000 XT pedals have a solid, increased-surface area platform to stand upon, enabling them to better transfer your effort to the rear wheel. Other design enhancements include a low profile design which increases ground clearance and offset bindings to improve mud shedding capabilities - the previous generation's achilles heel.
The Shimano PD-M8000 XT XC pedals use a stainless steel axle, bolts, retention springs, and bindings. The body is made from aluminum. The release tension is adjustable and the pedals offer 5 degrees of float.
The M8000 features a platform that's 2.8mm wider and with 7.7% more contact area than the M780s. Additionally, the M8000 lowers the platform height 0.5mm to place your shoes closer to the spindle. Of course you'll still enjoy consistent, precise engagement and release in even the muddiest of conditions.
About Shimano America
Shimano is the biggest manufacturers of cycle components anywhere in the world. Based in Japan, Shimano makes products for all the major cycling disciplines including road, mountain, trekking and leisure. With a huge range on offer they’ll definitely have something to suit you on almost any type of bike.
In 1961, a 3-speed bicycle hub displayed at the New York Toy Show was the catalyst for what would eventually become Shimano American Corporation. The popularity of 20-inch wheeled bikes with hi-rise handle bars fueled a demand for multi-speed hubs and Shimano was producing an affordable and reliable version that caught the attention of the industry. So much so, that by 1965, Yoshizo Shimano, the youngest son of the company founder in Japan, opened an office in New York to get quicker product feedback and to provide technical and warranty assistance to retailers selling bikes equipped with Shimano parts.
Shimano’s participation extends much further than the product, though. Through advocacy programs, ISO 14001 certification, and even commuter / car pool programs for employees, Shimano practices good local citizenship, pursues continued access to those areas that are enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts, and is committed to minimizing our impact on the environment.
