Shimano XTR is the pinnacle of Shimano MTB technology and this XTR PD-M9120 trail pedal is well worth of that XTR title. The tail pedal features a wide cage around the binding mechanism which is great for stability when you're not clipped in whilst also providing protection for the mechanism, critical to riders who push themselves on challenging Australian MTB terrain. The pedal also has nice, wide bearing replacement to better distribute load and increase rigidity. These great design aspects combined with many more matched with Shimano's famous SPD feeling make this one of, if not the most desirable clip MTB pedal.
