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

Versatile but a bit heavy

By George

Pros

  • Adds To Bike's Versatilit
  • Adjustable
  • Good Platform
  • Increases Pedaling Efficiency
  • Reliable Entry/Exit

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Fitness Biking

Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

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.

    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

    These pedals work great where other fail. Best option for clip in one side while maintaining the choice of riding without any shoes.

    Easy secure clip in and out.

    I find it comforting to be able to clip out and flip to the flat side and pedal in, when approaching heavy car traffic intersections.

    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

    This is the first time I have used cycling shoes so I wasn't sure if I'd like using cleated pedals. The dual surface pedal was a good choice. I haven't fallen over yet and they pedals seem to make my pedaling more efficient.

      Great pedals, much lighter than the ones they're replacing. The footing is stable when not clicked in even with cleated shoes and the click in is solid and secure on the other side. Glad I bought these.

            I put these on my hybrid after riding 150 miles over 3 days on the New River trail. Oh, how I wish I had had these BEFORE that trip! But I have them now and love them. Easy to clip in/out. Solid Shimano craftsmanship. And they were easy to install.

            I have had an excellent experience with this product. I have an older model on my other bike, and this one has larger platform and, therefore, more comfortable pedaling.

              Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

              Most times, I ride my bike with cycling shoes with SPD cleats. Occasionally, I ride with more casual footwear. These pedals are ideal for the two of my bicycles that get this sort of mixed use.

              On any ride where it would be beyond mildly inconvenient (randonneuring, touring, night riding) to have an issue with my SPDs, I would insist on having this style of pedal on my bicycle. If my cycling shoes were damaged, lost or stolen, I could ride the platforms with street shoes or even in my bare feet.

              These are a very good value, and the little bit of weight savings afforded by the next model up simply isn't worth the extra expense to me.

              A very excellent, reliable, versatile and practical pedal.

                Just what I was looking for to upgrade from the original rat trap pedals that were worn out.
