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:

    This is my second pair. I find it a bit more comfortable than the Shimano A520's, although after 50mi. my feet still swell and feel like they are on fire. For simple rides, sometimes a metal pedal with a plastic 1/2 cage and sneakers can be quite a relief! If you are new to clip-ins, use a wrench to make the lock as loose as possible so that the shoe disengages easily.

      I've had these pedals for many years and experienced good reliability and function. I usually us footwear with cleats, but also use with regular footwear when circumstances warrants it. I have bought a second set of these pedals for a newly acquired bike. Great value.

          Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

          I love these. I commute with them and clip in but then when I use my bike throughout the day (I travel between buildings about 3/4 mile apart) I can just hop on in my casual shoes. These fit the bill for me perfectly. They are easy in and out on the clip side and on the flat side they are very comfortable and have great grip. If you commute or are thinking about clipping in, these are worth a try

              Have not used the SPD part yet as I'm shopping for shoes. However, would have been nice to know the pedals came with cleats which would have saved me $10.

                My first use of SPD petals. I use them with Shimano SH-CT41L shoes and they work very well together. Also the flat side is great when you want to wear other shoes.

                    Make sure your shoes have recessed cleats

                    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

                    I just wanted to update my review to make sure to point out these pedals are really made to be used with recessed cleat shoes only, which I didn't fully understand due to the fact they are advertised as road pedals. While they will work with regular, non-recessed road shoes, you will find like I did that since your foot will sit higher on the pedal in non-recessed shoes than in recessed shoes, that you will need to raise your seat. But then when you want to use the flat pedal side in tennis shoes, your foot will sit lower on the pedal and you will need to lower your seat (unless you don't care about being in an ideal riding position).

                    I find it kind of odd these are advertised as road pedals, when recessed cleats are far more common in MTB shoes, and not nearly as common in road shoes- that's where my confusion came from. So if you use conventional road shoes, these pedals probably aren't what you're looking for. But if you have shoes with recessed cleats, then this is a nicely versatile pedal.

                    nice hybrid pedal for my hybrid bike

                    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

                    One word- versatile. I think this is a nice pedal for someone with a hybrid bike like myself, someone who does a lot of city riding as well as longer distance road riding...it's as simple as shoe choice and flipping the pedal over to the side that corresponds to your shoe. I probably wouldn't recommend these for someone with a dedicated road bike for example, but for hybrids and maybe mountain bikes, it's very practical.
                    The only issue I can think of is that the flat side of the pedal isn't as grippy as my old flat/platform pedals (I never noticed my feet splay out under load before, probably just need more time adjusting to it), and it feels like the clip in side makes your feet sit very slightly higher on the pedal than it does on the flat side, though I could be imagining the extent of it.
                    But overall, this was a nice upgrade for me.
