Shimano MX80 Saint pedal Vs factory pedal

Installed newly arrived Shimano MX 80 pedal on bike after taking this image. The picture shows clearly why I made the decision to ditch the factory pedal, I wear size 10 wide hiking shoe when I ride. Also bearing smoothness is night and day, adjustable/removable studs means infinite adjustable grip, 18 studs per pedal. Best purchase so far. Can't wait to try them out. Luckily I also ordered a folding multi tool from JensonUSA at the same time, didn't think it would be helpful right off the bat. It happened to have the properly sized wrench for the pedals narrow nut, all my shop type tools were too wide. Bing BING ! Second best purchase.

Really nice pedals, until you slip and the studs jar into your shin. You just hope the studs help you not slip and get stabbed.

Update: Yes the Saint MX80 pedals are sold as mountain bike "downhill" type, but works very well on a hybrid. Did short ride with it, grips my Acco lightweight hiking shoe like glue. Feels like shoes are on a platform, sort of stable/secure feel, which is way better then factory pedals. My impression is that the bearings are way smoother then factory set, . Great $70 investment. Sorry for weird perspective of image, shot with iPhone.

Like you, I also put a set of those pedals on my Trek and it was a purchase I'll never regret. The stock pedals didn't last long at all. They were already grinding after maybe 1000 miles. I'm using them on my hybrid and they fit the bill. I would not hesitate recommending them to anyone.

Can you measure the pedal surface? I wear a size 16 4E and I am looking for a pedal that half my shoe doesn't hang off of.

Thank you. At the ball of my foot my shoe is 5" across. I'll have to measure the stock pedals on my Roam and see what they are.

I fitted them to my Focus Wasgo earlier this year. Fantastic upgrade and no slipping even in wet or muddy conditions.

I was looking on amazon at new pedals a weekish ago and saw these, thought they looked awesome and were exactly what I wanted. I just couldn't do the price though.

I ended up with wellgo ones of about the same design, not as cool looking though.
Amazon.com : Wellgo MG-1 Magnesium Sealed Platform Pedal, 9/16-Inch, Black : Bike Pedals : Sports & Outdoors
I got the unpainted ones, work good, foot is glued in place.

My stock 7.4 FX pedals are getting worn, after only a few hundred miles. The left one doesn't spin freely anymore. I am looking at this Shimano pedal set.

How durable have these Shimano MX80 pedals been for you guys?

The stock pedals that came with my DS were rubbish. Yes they were blue and matched the paint job but hit a few rocks and they were mangled and started to squeak all in the first 100kms or so. Replaced them with MG1s

Big difference more robust, bigger platform, more grip and felt so much better when I was up off the seat either pushing up a hill or riding over the rough stuff.

Guess they've got to hit a price point somehow.

If you're after something a little smaller and inconspicuous have a look at the Wellgo R146s. (https://en.wellgopedal.com/products_detail_4_244.htm) Same type of pedal in a smaller format. Ran them on the cyclocross.



And no even after 5000 kms+ never caught myself on the back of the leg

Gone clipless now though........ But that's a whole different story
