Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedals
The Shimano PD-A530 pedals are truly marvels of versatility. On one side of the pedal is a step-in SPD system that's designed to be used with recessed SPD-type shoes to ensure amazingly efficient pedaling coupled with off-the-bike walking comfort. Flip the pedals over and you've got a broad platform pedal that's perfect for casual riding in regular footwear. The A530s are the perfect pedals for new SPD users as well as everyday cycling, commuting, trekking, hybrid and touring devotees.

  • Adjustable entry and release tensions settings
  • Low-maintenance sealed cartridge axle unit
  • Chromoly spindle with a steel pedal body is plenty strong and built to last
  • Clean, svelte, attractive appearance

    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

    I have Shimano spd shoes and spd pedals on my mountain bike so i wanted a spd pedal for my road bike so that i could wear the same shoes. I was a little concerned about always being clipped in because some of the places I ride (traffic) and wanted to be able to unclip and ride on the platform when necessary. I rode 84 miles on them the first weekend I had them and am very happpy with them. Really pleased with this purchase.

    I will say that the platform side is not ultra sticky. It worked well w/ my shoes and my application but if you wanted to ride on the platform side predominantly it may not be the perfect pedal. I like it because i can also jump on my bike in sneakers if I just want to ride around the neighborhood.
    They are a little stiff clipping in and out but I am told that they should loosen up with use.
    I have recessed cleats in my shoes and they worked well w/ my shoes.

      Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

      Love these pedals. Put them on my hybrid. Allows me to use my clips or just bop around with sneakers. Much more efficient pedaling with clips. Easy to get in and out. Adjustable tension. Have only put on about 50 miles and will wait to see if they loosen up a bit before I adjust the tension. Very secure when clipped. Has a bit of free play but no problem with that. Look good and easy install. Shimano clips are included with the pedals-a nice plus. I'm sure they'll last a long time.
      Definitely recommend these.

          Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

          have these on two different road bikes. They have a little wider platform which makes them more comfortable on long rides. If weight counts then you would probably not want these but I think they are perfect.

                This is my 2nd pair of A530 pedals. Both bikes I have them on are mostly worn with SPD shoes, but occasionally may need the "regular pedal" side for other shoes. These fit the bill

                  Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

                  I ride my comfort bike about 500 miles a year as secondary / family bike. When our 10yo wants to go for a ride - just go, no waiting to change keens to spd shoes. These pedals fit the bill. If I were to change one thing - it'd be to design the platform to have better grip pattern. But for the pedal price it is what it is......

                          I believe that most of us would ride more if we don't separate riding from the rest of our normal lives. I like to be able to ride in what I have on now. I don't ride like a bike racer so I don't try to look like one. I can take off to the Post Office in my flip flops, boat shoes or whatever and still snap in for my Sunday morning ride with my buddies.
