The Shimano Deore XT PD-M8100 XC pedals have been specially developed for cross country use and with the double sided platform and widened shoe pedal contact area, power transfer and stability are both excellent.
The durability of the cartridge axle has improved and the pedal features a sealed mechanism and release adjusted tension. Ride through all rough conditions without hesitation. The strategic pedal design enhances mud shedding to have you out riding longer. Shimano's SPD pedal system remains a proven and successful formula and the PD-M1800 pedals are the ideal choice for aggressive trail riding.
- Large pedal platform
- Lower platform height for pedaling stability

Arguably not worth the price bump from the 540 or even 520 spd pedals, but when theyï¿½re on sale, theyï¿½re a no brainer. Bought my second pair with my first pair being 4 years old and still solid, being put on my sons bike. If paying full price, go for the 540 or 520ï¿½s, but if on sale, grab the XTs.
I have been using these pedals for 2 years and race and train with them on my CX and fat bikes. These are solid and reliable. For racing they clear muddirt very well. For riding in the snow recommend spraying the cleats and pedals with cooking oil to prevent the snow from sticking.
I run these on my road bike and the build quality and smooth rotation is what I have come to expect from Shimano. This is the third or fourth time I have purchased these pedals for my road, tandem and mountain bikes.
I use these pedals on a road bike because I like to be able to walk easily in my cycling shoes. These pedals are great looking and so far function very well. I have high hopes because my old Shimano SPDs have given me 21,000 miles of service and the only complaint I could have is that my sweat drops make them rust. The 8000's have the appearance of being stainless so I hope the rust will not be a problem.
Bought these for my new gravel bike. I was curious if I would see any difference from the PD-M540 I usually use and am quite satisfied with. They perform very well as expected but can't say I notice any improvement over the 540s. If you're a weight freak, go ahead and spend the extra $, you won't be disappointed. I don't do the type of riding where I could tell if there is enhanced mud shedding.
Smooth operation on my gravel race bike. Easy to clip in and out and only nominally heavier than the XTR version. No experience with mud here in the high desert of New Mexico but work fine in our dusty conditions. Highly recommend.
bought these for my new gravel bike and going from road pedals to gravel I knew I wanted a double sided clip. I watch a lot of youtube cyclist and gravel pro's and notice these pedals on their bikes, and these were not promoted as a paid endorsement- that tells me they just work well- and they do. I never need to look down when clipping in and double sided is so functional. I have about 350 miles on them now and have never have a problem with mud or dirt.
Can't ever really go wrong with Shimano. Good pedal for the price, of course not as light as XTR but a definite upgrade for anyone looking for a solid XC pedal. Have had no issues with clipping in or out, they work great.
The xt pedals have been my choice since I started clipping in. I use them on my mtb and gravel bike. Great value, very durable and easy to maintain. I actually gifted my old set to my NEPHEW for his first set. This new set is almost identical to all my others.
I've been riding road bikes for the last 40 years and have been clipped in one way or another. I have used toe clips and straps, one-sided clipless pedals and, for the last 10 years, two-sided pedals. I'm fairly new to mountain biking, but couldn't imagine not being clipped in. I chose these XT pedals after reading many reviews and talking to many friends that have ridden mountain bikes for a long time. I like the two-sided entry. The pedals are easy to engage, provide a solid connection to the bike, and stay fairly clean of dirt and debris. Great pedals!
