For Sale 2013-14 Shimano XTR SPD M980 XC Race Pedals and Cleats

The sales jargon:

· Two-sided mechanism
· Efficient power transfer due to increased pedal-shoe interface (270% more shoe/pedal contact compared to PD-M970)
· Lighter, low profile design
· Robust, dependable SPD functions
· Improved mud shedding design with oval-shaped axle body housing
· Weight (g): 310 (according to Shimano)

The new XTR Race pedals connect riders to their bike like never before, maximizing the renowned strength and stiffness of XTR cranks with complementary XTR Race pedals, which use wider bearing placement for ultimate rigidity under load. These new pedals boast four times the shoe/pedal contact area as the previous generation XTR pedal, helping channel every ounce of effort to the rear wheel.

This refined design retains all the time-tested and race-proven functionality SPD is famous for, and adds a slimmer axle profile to reduces weight and increase mud shedding capability. This new pedal also provides a lower and more biomechanically correct platform height, which more efficiently transfers power into the drive train while picking up precious millimeters of ground clearance at the same time.
Simply put: XTR Race SPD is the most efficient and controllable race-day pedal Shimano has ever produced.

Price: ¥6,000 JPY not including shipping (retail: ¥11,351) The cleats they come with are brand new and still in the packet.

Condition:

Excellent condition, with minor cosmetic blemishes were raced on 8 times in the 2012-13 season and serviced and cleaned after each event. Training bike had another set of pedals so in reality these pedals were only ridden for about 20 hours.

Reason for selling:

I will be using a different pedal system for the 2013-14 Cyclocross season. I was incredibly happy with the performance of them but no longer require these pedals.
