Guide to Shimano Pedals at Best Prices

Decent pedals are a guaranteed no brainer upgrade- reduce rotating mass, improve your connection with the transmission system, and look after your knees too. Shimano are the world leaders, and Planet X are proud to offer a massive range of road, MTB and commuting pedals all at the web's keenest prices. This short blog takes you through the features and benefits of some of our favourites, as well as giving general advice on the best type of pedals to choose. 

In many ways contact points are the most important parts of a bike to get right. Saddle, bars, and of course, pedals, are the key areas where your body makes a physical connection with your bike. Get it wrong, and your cycling experience will be inefficient, uncomfortable or even dangerous. Good quality pedals are a logical and affordable upgrade on many off the peg bikes, and Shimano are recognised as best in the business- but which type is best for you?
