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

Good but a few quirks

      Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

      These are very good dual use pedals, but they do have a couple of quirks. First is that the platform makes the pedal have less clearance when clipped in. I guess I'm used to pedals with more clearance and when I angled around a turn, these scraped a bit. Not a big deal and something I can tolerate for the dual use, but I was surprised by this. Second is that I was expecting the platform side to naturally fall downwards to make the pedal entry predictable, but that doesn't happen. Maybe it will eventually as the bearings loosen up. At least for now that means I have to look at the pedal to see where it is when clipping in. Other pedals I've used are always in the same position due to their weight balance so I can just snap in without a look.

      Also, I ended up with a bum bearing in the left pedal. I'm assuming this was just a one off and I'm sure the exchanged pedal will be fine.

        Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

        My problem is when I buy something new, I think I need to play with the nuts and bolts... nope. Don't mess with these pedals. Just install them on your bike. Bolt on the SPD plates on your shoes... and go. They're great! I can't speak to the longevity of this product. But I'm a complete NOOB and I hope these things treat me well. I have maybe 200 miles on my new bike. Thanks Shimano for another good product... here we go!

          Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

          I put these on my hybrid so I could get a better workout. The platform sides lets me do things like riding to the library in flip-flops. But when I want to log some miles and get a good workout, I put on my Shimano shoes, click in, and go. Unclicking from the pedals is always easy (the tension is easily adjustable). The pedals even look great and installed easily.......I couldn't be happier.

              I am an enthusiastic middle-aged recreational cyclist who finally bit the bullet and went clipless. I changed the pedals out yesterday and just got back from a 30-mile ride today -- these were a great choice! Easy and adjustable clipping in, two-sided for commuting in work shoes, made the hills and headwinds easier, and (after a careful practice ride yesterday) I felt completely safe. Awesome!

                I have a fixed gear single speed that I like to use for exercise and for errands so this pedal is just what the "Doctor" ordered. I can ride clipped in with my cycling shoes for exercise but have the option of riding in my wing tips if I want to around town.

                    I received these about 3 weeks ago. I have had trouble snapping in and twisting out. On Saturday I could not release my right foot in time to come to a stop and I fell over which resulted in scrapes and a huge black and blue below my hip. The adjustment screw seems not to make a difference.

                          I added these pedals to a new fitness bike. They give me the ability to get the most out of my workouts, but if I just want to do a casual ride without clipping in I can still do that too. If you are a serious cyclist and are concerned about weight, these are not for you as they are a bit heavy.
