    Sure-footed stability for technical trails.

    Revamped with an 11.7 percent increase in pedal-to-shoe contact over its PD-M785 predecessor, the Shimano XT PD-M8020 Trail Pedal provide supreme stability for conquering formidable stretches of trail. The 3.3 millimeter wider profile over the previous iteration makes the M8020 Trail Pedal even more competent in wild terrain, facilitating quick engagement without endlessly searching for the pedal platform.

    Other than the slightly wider surface, the M8020 Trail Pedal retains the bombproof characteristics of the legendary PD-M785 with cro-moly construction and sealed cartridge bearings. Two-sided engagement makes easy work of clipping in, especially after dismounting across steep uphill sections and technical stretches. Another benefit, the cleat-to-pedal interface avoids mud buildup, even in nasty trail conditions. Other notable features include four degrees of float and integration with the included 2-bolt SPD cleats.

    The Best

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've used the XC version of this pedal for as long as I can remember. An awesome pedal. This one is a little easier to get into, which is helpful if you're restarting in technical terrain. Hard to imagine it being any better.

    Best pedal ever.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have two sets of these, and both are battle scarred from numerous run ins with rocks, tree roots, and the like. They still spin great, and ingress and egress is as smooth as ever. They really are the gold standard for clipless mountain pedals in my opinion. I always recommend them to whomever I speak with, they are my absolute favorite, hands down.

    My First Trail Pedal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recently switched over to the trail pedals after riding the XT XC pedal and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised!

    The extra platform that this pedal offers over the XC makes a huge difference. This extra stability helps in those situations where you can't quite clip in quick enough which gives you enough of a platform to keep pedaling until you are able to get clipped in.

    These will most likely be a one time purchase...only because these things last forever! The durability of these pedals are incredible! These are top notch pedals and I would recommend them to anyone!

    Quick Step

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got these for my brother who is on his high school's MTB racing team. He really likes them for the quick step in, you can step in on either side of the pedal.
    I'd recommend these to anyone who is looking to step up their game on the trails.

    Happy Trails!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These pedals seem/feel just like the standard XT pedals... except, I haven't been taking large chunks of flesh out of my shins like I did with the XT pedals. I'm really not sure what exactly is responsible for this phenomenon, but I am grateful for it! It could be that I'm not having accidental disengagements or that when I stop to kick a rock out of the trail, the larger platform is easier to see and so I am more aware of where the pedal is... Whatever the reason, I am happy with my M8020 Trail Pedals!

    First time is the charm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First experience riding "clipped in" to "clipless" pedals (most nonsensical terminology ever). I have absolutely no complaints so far, about 60 miles in. Easy to get in and out, would highly recommend to any newcomers to clipless pedals

    Still waiting for these to wear out

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you could see right now, I'd be deep in thought counting on my fingers and toes. I'm trying to determine the number of years, miles, feet of elevation, states, bike parks, roots, and rocks that these pedals have accompanied me through. If you tell me "price, weight, or durability, you can't have all three," I show you the Shimano XT Trail pedal.

    There is a reason serious bikers use em

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These thing are absolutely bomb proof. After using XT pedals that didnt have the cage around them for years, I decided to make a move to something with a little more meat.

    I recently got into some more enduro style riding and the cage really helps orient the pedal fast should you need to unclip and clip back in quickly. You can really slap your shoe on these things and BAM you are back in it.

    Countless pedals strikes and these things just keep going. I have actually NEVER retired a pair of SPD mountain pedals. They simple last forever and the system is proven.

    Awesome Pedals

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my second pair of Shimano clip-less pedals. Love that you can set the tension of the clip. Easy to get in and out of. They have a solid click sound, so you know you're clipped in. Pretty heavy but worth it.

    Cleat Platform Unreliable. Broke on me

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I decided to go back to SPDs after using various crank brothers platforms when i got my new bike. Forgot how much more difficult these are to clip into comparatively. Despite screwing the screws into my shoes (into shimano shoes nonetheless) very tightly and using lock-tite to secure them, they kept shifting around, often preventing me from clipping in. Ultimately, one of the clips got ripped out of my shoe and remained stuck in the pedal. If it weren't for the fact that I will be switching back to Crank Bros pedals, I would have to purchase new cleats.

    This is unacceptable and I believe that I should be refunded.

    Thats rather annoying. I have had to tighten my cleats after the first couple of rides too when new, I think its pretty normal until those ridges on the spd cleat get really stuck into the shoe.

    Sounds like the pedal was doing its job and maybe there is an issue with the Shimano shoe. If you are still trying out the XT's try loosening the cleat spring tension - no need for it to be super tight.

    You could always just ride flats :)

    Spot On

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I am new to mountain biking, but have been road biking for many years. These pedals helped me make an easy transition into mountain biking. They are durable and easy to click in and out of. They are extremely easy to install as well. I wouldn't buy any other pedal out there. Love them!

    Great pedal

      Put my old XT SPD M8000 (the smaller deals, which rock) on new cross bike and went with the XT Trail for a wider platform and based on the reviews. Both are fantastic pedals and I think I like these more for the larger platform, especially if you can't get clipped right away. I have beat them pretty good so far and they are holding up. Would buy again, but with Shimano XT pedals, won't need to for years.

      Bashing pedal e'ry day

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Enjoy pedal striking on rocks? Me neither but it happens, just accept it, and get some pedals that can take the abuse. They dont shed mud like my crankbros but I knew that going in so i forgave them. I like the action on the xtr trails a bit better but now we're just getting nit-picky.

      Love At First Click

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I am pretty new to mountain biking and clipless pedals always seemed so daunting to me. Before I bought my own bike I borrowed a friend's that was equipped with clipless pedals and it was a tough ride to say the least... So when I purchased my own bike I was wary of buying a pair but I am so so happy I chose these Shimanos!
      I really like the bigger platform, it definitely helps me to locate my pedals whenever I get going. They are super easy to click in and out of (I of course have them on the lightest tension but it is night and day compared to my friend's pedals) which is a big confidence booster. They feel wicked secure, even over really rocky terrain. Can't say anything about their durability yet but as of right now I couldn't be any happier with them!

      We Just Clicked

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Awesome pedals. The engagement and release is totally seamless, I don't have to think twice when clicking in/out. The float is just right, and you can feel the stopping point before disengaging when pivoting your feet. Right out of the gates I felt super confident on these pedals. I was on a pair of CBs previously, and although I liked the stock release tension on those I definitely appreciate the ability to adjust tension on the Shimanos. I didn't notice the platform providing any extra support while engaged, however it does make locating your pedals in a hurry much easier.

      What's the weight of the SHIMANO XT PD-M8020 TRAIL PEDAL?
