Shimano offer the DA 9000 pedals with a 4mm longer axle over standard.

How do you determine if a rider needs a longer axle and can it be measured before purchasing? Is there a certain pelvis width that dictates a longer axle?

I'm unclear.

Thanks

width is determined by attitude of foot on pedal (toe in/out, pronation, ankle prominence) and knee tracking requirements moreso than pelvis width (though it contributes). No simple measurement will suffice, as it is more of a dynamics issue. You'll need a proper fitting to determine if you would benefit from a wider spindle, unless you already know your pedal stroke is compromised by a narrow stance.

I do have a tendency to bring my toe in slightly, ankle outwards plus I also have big quads too. With this in mind I'm considering a wider axle might help but wanted to see your thoughts.

Here's my recent Retual bike fit dimensions. See knee tracing below - the test was done on a 50 mm Speedplay Ti axle with the cleats set almost to the most in position of each shoe, to improve Q-Factor.

don't see how they would help you. they would only bring your ankles further out but consider the 4 mm in relation to a seat height of let's say 750 mm

i find them helpful because of too little foot/ankle clearance (wide and flat feet)
