The Good:

Definitive Clip-in Feel, Durable, Easy to enter and exit, adjustable clip in tension, Longevity, Set it and Forget it. I never accidentally come un-clipped

The Bad:

Expensive, Less Float and less mud/ice shedding ability than Crank Brothers, No replaceable pins, Platform not as good as Mallet or Mallet E when un-clipped.

Overall Review:

I have just switched over to Shimano XTR trail pedals after having been on Crank Brothers Mallets and Mallets E s for the last 8 years or so.

The Good: Light, A very Definitive Clip-in Feel, They are Durable, Easy to enter and exit, adjustable clip in tension, Price, Longevity, Set it and Forget it. I never accidentally come un-clipped like I used to with Crank Bros. The cleats are steel and last much longer than the Crank Bros Cleats.  I have not had to do ANY maintenance on them.  They seem to last forever.

The Bad: High Price, they have Less Float and less mud/ice shedding ability than Crank Brothers, No replaceable pins, Platform not as good as Mallet or Mallet E when un-clipped.


Shimano M9120 review

The Good:

Great platform, with added support compared to the old version. Lightweight, nice bearings, spins great!

The Bad:

The sealing at the inner side of the spindle comes out very easy. Even when positioned back it makes it's way out.

Overall Review:

The pedal function and performance is best in class. Very nice and thoughtful design that just works all the time.

The increased contact surface is really tangible, I exeperiece way less foot numbness if any despite I use it on a road bike which is more of a static load on the body and on the feet.

My only complaint is the seals on the spindle that never stays in it's place. For a pedal that cost this much and being a flagship model of Shimano this is not acceptable!

It's XTR, What Else Needs To Be Said??

The Good:

As durable as one could ask for. The adjustable tension is handy for wearing cleats.

The Bad:

After many moons and zero maintenance they need pulled apart and greased and adjusted. I wouldn't call it a bad thing, just general maintenance. Can't expect pedals to last forever without any love.

Overall Review:

I've had these pedals for years and on multiple bikes and used them for everything from XC to DH shuttle laps to everyday trail riding on a Giant Reign and now a Santa Cruz Hightower. I am not the hardest charger, but I am also not the lightest rider at 270lbs with a high score of almost 30lbs more 2 seasons ago. These pedals just keep putting up with everything and just brush off the poor line choice rock strikes. I am sure the XT pedals are just as good, but when the opportunity arises to get some XTR bling why not take it?
