Shimano invented SPD to meet the needs of a growing frontier lifestyle called MTB. By eliminating toe-clips and integrating the pedal and outsole into a single, unified power-transfer system, Shimano changed the industry—boosting not only power to the pedal, but also the rider's control over increasingly adventurous styles of riding. Today there's no single MTB style, and no single SPD pedal to match. It's all over the landscape, ranging from fast-paced XC racing to steep, rocky, wet, and muddy trail riding. Shimano SPD pedals are more than just keeping up—they're driving you forward. The legacy of in-the-dirt dependability and sheer endurance continues as shoe and pedal designs evolve to meet the needs of your personal riding style. Systems-engineered. Rider-tuned. Find your fit.
The toe-spring section of a cycling shoe plays a key role in supporting efficient pedaling. Too high, and it causes increased tension in the plantar, calf, and hamstring muscles. Too low, and you get a bowlegged, inefficient pedaling form. Extensive research by Shimano's R&D experts has produced a superior shoe last design with an optimized toe-spring section that promotes a smoother, more energy-efficient upstroke. Built based on feedback from pro riders, Shimano Dynalast helps reduce energy loss on long rides, letting you keep more in the tank for that final sprint to the line.
