Hi All, 

As many other on this forum, I am very happy with the XTR M980 pedal. However, as many WW have noticed before me, this is not exactly the lightest pedal around. I realize that there has been a thread previously concerning Ti axles for the XTR pedal, however I also remember that there were some doubts whether the axle will hold up or not. Do anybody have some advice on how to make the XTR pedal lighter without sacrificing safety and function?

Thanks :wink:

There are titanium countersunk bolts which can replace the steel torx bolts. Will save you some 6 grams. See my post here:
