The SPD pedal has been synonymous with mud shedding, ease of use and reliability since its inception. What the XTR edition has done is made it one of the lightest pedals out there while keeping all the great qualities of SPD and just making them even better. With leading class mud shedding, adjustable entry and release settings and a wide bearing placement for increased rigidity it's an amazing feat that Shimano has brought it all into a package that weighs just 310 grams per pair!
Shimano XTR Design
The XTR PD-M9000 Pedals are exactly like the XT Race in both performance and function, with only minor differences. This new design reduces weight and increases mud clearance. With a mud-shedding design, adjustable entry and release settings, and wide bearing placement for extra rigidity, the XTR PD-M9000 XC Race Pedal is the best pedal Shimano has produced to date.
