Lightweight Road Pedal with semi platform

    Comments about Shimano A520 Sport/Touring Road Pedals:

    Very lightweight, but is a Road Pedal. It has only a single point release unlike mountain pedals. The "platform" is large but slippery. For Road only use, it should be fine, but for mixed use (commuting) a real cage pedal with SPD side would be better. Actually a dual side mountain pedal is best.

      • Tandem

      Comments about Shimano A520 Sport/Touring Road Pedals:

      We use SPD pedals on our tandem. We wear mountain shoes as they are easier to walk in than road shoes. We like to stop a wineries, shops, and scenic sites on our rides. These pedals are light. They also have a larger platform that is more comfortable. I thought being only one sided they might be difficult to clip in, but that is no problem.

      Shimano SPD Road

        Comments about Shimano A520 Sport/Touring Road Pedals:

        Switched from MTB SPDs to these SPD A520 Road pedals. I have recessed cleats and the new road pedals take a bit getting used to as far as clipping in. More of a learning curve on my part. Once clipped in, all is good.

              These cleats are very nice for the $. If you get hot spots or numbness in your feet these may be the solution as they tend to do a good job with applying pressure across a larger area of the foot.

                This is the 2nd set I've owned. Great for the weekend or Tourist rider. These are the best to get started with if you are unsure abt Clipless pedal. 5 STAR in my book...

                  I had been using the toe clips over the pedal which were harder to use than these. I was able to get me shoe attached to the pedal right away. They are also easy to take off. My husband attached them and did all the work but he said it was easy.

                    These are a great cross platform cleat. I have road bikes, mountain bikes and hybrid bikes. Using one cleat for all bikes just makes sense. im not racing but I enjoy my long rides and short commutes.
