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.
  • Dual-sided design with SPD system on one side and platform pedal on the other
  • 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:

The are very versatile pedals. I put them on my "secondary" training bike. I usually clip with them but when I have to stop at intersections or just want to ride in the sub-division the flat pedal works well. I opened the adjustment all the way but clicking out requires more effort than on my "primary" bike with Shimano M520's. I am hoping they will loosen up. Over all I am pleased.

      Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

      I have had Clickr pedals, then SPD 420s. I bought the 430s because I encountered situations in traffic where I had to clip-out and then pedal on short notice....the platform on the other side of the clip allows me to just put my foot on the pedal and go...without the pause necessary to clip-in. With the 420s, you really need to be clipped-in to pedal with any effectiveness. The Clickr's are good for getting used to clipless, but too light in retension once you do. I had some unintentional releases and wanted more tension.

            When used with my Giro cycling shoes, exit is too hard, due to recessed sole?

            These are my first pair of clipless pedals and I love them! They are easy to use. If you don't want to clip in the alternate side has these nice grooves that help your foot stay in place. I would definitely recommend these for commuters or newbies.

            A shout-out to Nashbar for excellent customer service. When my shipment was lost en route, you handled it instantly and re-sent it my way. You even noticed that I didn't need to buy cleats, since they would be included with the pedals. Really appreciate your thoughtfulness.
