Product Review: Shimano Saint M820 Pedals

Shimano Saint M820 Pedals

We don’t want to say that Shimano’s DX M647 pedals have overstayed their welcome, but, to be truthful, they have. Shimano knew it was time for a more modern pair of pedals to enter the gravity realm, so they answered the call with the new Saint M820 pedals. Our testers strapped on their full-face enduro helmets, grabbed their Shimano clipless shoes and headed out to shred our local gravity-fed trails.

Tech info: The new Shimano Saint pedals are meant for enduro, bike park and downhill riders searching for clipless pedals with wider and grippier platforms and a thinner profile. The M820s have a platform that is 78x91mm wide and a thickness of only 19mm. Pedal pins are included; however, it’s up to the rider whether to mount them or not. Each pedal has four pins per side for a total of 16 for the pair. Riders can also adjust these pins using the included washers—from 0.6mm to 1.6mm. These adjustments allow riders to find the perfect amount of traction.
