METI titanium Shimano XTR pedals PD-M9100 SPD Race | Titanium axle short -3 mm
The Shimano XTR pedals have always been known for their very good durability and function in the racing scene. Compared to its predecessor, the contact area of the 9100 pedal has been increased by a wider, flattened pedal body. That's why the M9100 pedals offer improved power transmission and more control in technically demanding passages. The shape of the pedals has been optimized for adverse weather conditions. Thanks to the improved self-cleaning achieved with this, clicking in and out does not cause any problems, even on muddy track conditions.
However, perfect function was always weighed a few grams too much. Thanks to the Meti titanium axles, this is now a thing of the past. The optimized axle are manufactured by Meti in Italy from high-strength grade 5 titanium on modern CNC machines.
While the outer bearing is taken over by two maintenance-free ceramic hybrid deep groove ball bearings, the original plain bearing is still used on the inside. In addition to the weight saved, this construction also results in a silky smooth run. According to the manufacturer, the axle are approved for a driver's weight including clothing, backpack, etc. up to 100 kg.
The result of the diet is quite impressive. The pedals have shed just over 50g in weight and now weigh just 258g per pair without sacrificing a touch of their perfect function. This is what sensible tuning looks like.
