    More stable and efficient than ever.

    The Shimano XT PD-M8000 XC Pedals combine bombproof durability with lightweight efficiency for cross-country racers, dedicated trail riders, 'cross enthusiasts, and even road riders. Redesigned for 2016, the M8000 XC Pedals benefit from a 7.7 percent increase in pedal-to-shoe contact while enjoying a reduced stack height by 0.5 millimeters. These slight design tweaks improve stability and pedaling efficiency, also preventing pedal strikes on rocky trails by reducing its overall height profile. The M8000 XC Pedals retain their legendary durability with cro-moly construction and sealed cartridge bearings. As always, they feature four degrees of float and work with Shimano's 2-bolt SPD cleats.

    • The classic mountain bike pedal
    • Increased surface area for more stability
    • Reduced stack height lowers rock-strike risk
    • Durable body and sealed bearings absorb abuse
    • Item #SHI008Y

    So Great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My first clipless pedals were Shimano M520's and the I got M540's. And now I am on to the XT's. Don't think I will ever get the XTR's when the XT's are this good. I love how easy it is to get in and out of these pedals and how well they shed dirt. I've never had a Shimano SPD pedal fail on me in all my years of riding. I still have my first pair of M520's. The XT's are pretty much lighter 520's or 540's which is a good thing. They are tough and reliable! I can't see myself trying other clipless pedals when these are ohhh sooooo good.

    Easy In Easy Out

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I just overhauled my 1995 Stumpjumper and wanted to upgrade the rat trap pedals with toe straps that came with it. Debated about using a pair of overhauled/serviced 25-year-old Shimano PD-530 pedals we pulled off of our tandem, but opted instead to go with a new set of XT PD-8000 pedals. These are silky smooth new generation SPD pedals that work flawlessly, even with the older SH-50 cleats. My Stumpjumper is set up with semi slicks and I use it as an alternate road bike for tooling around and riding with my family when I'm not on my road bike. Great pedals that I wouldn't hesitate to put on a MTN bike or commuter bike. Solid investment.

    Solid Foul-Weather Pedal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am a dedicated roadie with Speedplay stainless Zeroes on all but two of my bikes that I ride in the grit and slop of northern Michigan winters/early spring. In my opinion, Zeroes provide the best interface between one’s feet and the bicycle, hands down. Speedplay Frogs, on the other hand, are pretty sub-par. So I’d always end up using old Zeroes, year ‘round. They do not like grit, not to mention snow packed into the cleats when you have to dismount and walk a bit. So I finally decided to go with these, having had some experience with XTs in the past. I am very happy with them. Quick, relatively solid engagement; pretty good power transfer; they ‘blow off’ grit and grime. Somewhat on the heavy side, especially compared to Zeroes, but hey. No cleat scrape while walking is a bonus, even in gravel, although I suppose this may be due to my shoes’ cleat mounting surface. Great price didn’t hurt, either.

    Like all Shimano products this works as intended. Great, easy, positive engagement. Switched from Eggbeaters to Shimano on all my cross and mountain bikes mostly to have a more secure pedalling platform but realy happy with the ease of engagement.

    Only con might be their ability to clear mud and ice compared to the Eggbeaters.

    Twenty years on Shimano XT SPDs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Seriously, they take a lot of abuse. The bearings are accepted as the industry standard for top quality and smoothness of operation. Mud clearing? Serviceability? Easy to adjust? Check, check, & check! I usually get about 5 years of brutal east coast rocks and roots riding / racing out of a pair. The XTRs are lighter, but the XTs are more durable.

    Tried and True.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm an out-and-out roadie, but I manage to do a bit of off-road, trail, commuting, and leisure riding on my 'cross bike. I've been a Speedplay devotee for years--at least when it comes to road riding. So I tried Speedplay Frogs on my 'cross set-up. Disappointing, to say the least. Engagement 'feel' was almost non-existent; couldn't do a calf stretch without inadvertently clipping out and racking myself on the top tube. They were soon relegated to the parts bin. I went with Candy 3s which were marginally better but still difficult to engage and didn't feel as if they had a solid platform. I chucked them for a pair of these SPDs, recalling that I'd had a pair when SPDs had just been introduced and had come as OE on my 1988 Cannondale touring bike (along with SRAM Gripshifters--also something new/revolutionary back in the day). I probably put 10,000 km on that bike, and on those pedals. The SPDs were unquestioningly solid and reliable. Now I'm reacquainted with them and couldn't be happier. This pair is all I need for light- to medium-duty in all but the worst condition, with the same qualities as that first pair. Highly, highly recommended.

    Cheap and durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These XT pedals are a great option for both beginners or expert riders. They are durable enough to Enduro ride with and light weight enough to XC race with. not to mention they are half the price of XTR pedals.

    Beat the $#!t out of these pedals

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ride XT race pedals every day, through rain, shine, heat, and cold. Yes, they're heavier than ATACs. No, they wont' break. Ever. These are the pedals you run, when you need your $#!t working through every condition.

    Love at first clip

      Great addition to my bike for easy clip function and reliability. I was a little worried as this was my first clipless pedal purchase for my bike, but I have been more than satisfied. Easy tension adjustability makes this a great pedal for all levels to adjust to the riders liking and ability. My husband was against these smaller looking clipless pedals, and he tried these and was super impressed and ended up get some for himself 😉.

      Unanswered Question

      Is the clips included in the Shimano XT PD-M8000 XC ?

      I have XTR on my road bike and a very old pair of Ritchey pedals on my mountain bike. I'd like to wear the same pair of shoes for both and was considering the XT for my MTB. Does the XT pedals work with the Shimano SH51 cleats?

      Hi George!

      You can indeed use the same SPD SH51 cleats in both XT and XTR pedals. If I can be of assistance with your purchase or any other questions you have, let me know.
