    Shimano M424 SPD Pedals

    Shimano M424 SPD Pedals is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a beginner This is my first experience with cleat pedals and it has been easy and effective. It took a little getting used to how to click in to the pedal, but once I did it a few times I got the hang of it. They have noticeably improved my efficiency and speed. You do NOT need to buy cleats -- they come with the pedals!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid pedal, especially for the price I have been riding SPD pedals on all mountain and cross country mountain bikes for the past 15 years. I recently purchased this platform SPD pedal when I branched out to resort downhill riding. The reason I made this switch was due to a recent trip where I "sent it" off of a good sized jump on a black diamond trail and my right foot came out of my standard SPD pedal. Landing a big jump with 3 points of contact is an endeavor I did not wish to repeat. With the platform, even if you accidentally release from the SPD, at least you have something. I still ride rocky, technical sections where I may need to quickly release from the pedal so I do not wish to ratchet the tension too strong on the SPD. I've found this platform to be a reasonable compromise of stability and ease of release. Overall, the pedal has worked flawlessly. It is comparable in performance to more expensive models of SPD pedals. If need be, you can use this pedal without SPD compatible shoes. I have no serious gripes concerning this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The journey to go clipless First off I only gave them 4 stars because Shimano makes the PD-M545 pedal which is essentially the same thing with a medal cage rather than the plastic, which would be more durable or so I would think. Other than that these pedals are 5 stars all the way and I have yet to see any issue with the plastic cage, nor do I think I will ever have one. These are just my second pair of clipless pedals. My first pair where Welgo's (much like the Shimano M324 but way cheaper) and they were the type that had the flat pedal option on one side and the binding on the other side. I found this setup to be extremely aggravating on very technical terrain (if you're only riding bike paths or smooth trails it shouldn't be an issue). When I first tried these I was in heaven not having to think about what side the pedal was rotated on. The slightly recessed, angled binding and it's rotation on the spindle proved to be a huge advantage in getting into the pedal. These pedals are actually easier to ride on when not engaged into the binding with your cleat than the flat side of a pedal when wearing cleats. So my biggest advice is if your considering going clipless for some 'real' mtn biking go all in and get dual sided bindings because even with the 50/50 setup the clips on the bottom of your shoes will make it very hard to stay stable on the flat side of a pedal. The cleats are the second thing I would give advice on. The Welgo's I mentioned above came with the same SPD clipless binding and a set of the SH56 cleats, which are multi directional. I am now wearing the SH51 cleats (which com ewiht these pedals) which are only engaged/disengaged in the outward twist motion. I would recommend getting the multi directional SH56 cleats if these are your first pedals. I fell a lot to be honest, and the worst part was it was always when I was stopping (at slow speed)and the multi directional cleats will allow easy escaping from awkward falls. I've fallen way less on these pedals and have had a few very awkward positions I've had to escape from because of the one directional cleats. So in conclusion these pedals are great and if your pondering these or a 50/50 (flat/clipless) setup (like the Shimano M324)go all in, you'll save yourself a lot of frustration. It is still a decent sized learning curve but persistence is key! I'll still find use for flat pedals but there is no doubt that being attached to your bike provides very noticeable benefits while pedaling AND just ripping down and over some sick trails! Good luck!!!! Don't be afraid to laugh at yourself, it just makes riding that much more fun!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pedals that lock you in Great pedals. A little difficult to exit, but just need to change the setting. Tough to down hill in, great to ride up in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Pedals Not sure if I would buy these again or go with one-sided pedals.. I feel like I don't have a solid platform when clipped out, going down steep terrain. That said, I have never had clip-ins of any sort for my mtn. bike, so I don't have a lot of experience to draw from.. Otherwise, pedals work great and pretty easy to get in and out of.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could not be easier to install an use. This pedal was my first experience wit a "clip in" pedal and I am sorry I did not switch sooner. Installation took less than 5 minutes (you only need a 15mm spanner wrench). Directions are clear cut and thorough and getting acclimated to the "clip-in" process took less than 5 minutes (realistically 2-3 repetitions and I was comfortable). The feel is solid and there definitely is a feeling that you are a part of the bike and I agree with previous comments that I find my pedaling is more effective when compared to a standard pedal. I also purchased new Pearl Izumi cycling shoes and attaching the SPD (comes with pedals) clip to the shoe was easy and straightforward.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puts up with abuse Im really happy with this purchase. The sales man installed them for me and adjusted them just right after telling him i have never used these types of pedals. I feel twice as fast and my legs feel a workout that i never felt before. I recommend this product. I really like the platforms they are great if i just want to wear sandals just to run to the store real fast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds... My wife got the Shimano M424 SPD Pedals along with shoes as my Christmas gift and I couldn't be any happier. My form has greatly improved. Make sure you spend some time to adjust the release tension. I rushed out on my first ride and it was a little tighter than I expected for an unplanned stop and needless to say I failed to get my foot on the ground in time. (SPD Rookie's 1st fall) 130 + miles and they've been AWESOME! Oh, and if I go out for a quick ride with regular shoes they work just fine.
