Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedals
The Shimano PD-A530 pedals are truly marvels of versatility.

The A530s are the perfect pedals for new SPD users as well as everyday cycling, commuting, trekking, hybrid and touring devotees.

      Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

      I am new to clips and cycling shoes. I wanted a pedal that I can un clip before I get to a stop. I turn the pedal over and if I don't have to come to a complete stop, I can clip back in easily.

        Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

        Icm a beginner rider and I absolutely disliked toeclips so I figured I needed to go clippers to have increased efficiency and secure fit. I also wanted dual-use pedals that I would be able to use with running sneakers of needed. These pedals delivered on both points.

          Got these pedals because I use my mountain bike when biking with the family and got sick of having to wear and pack my bike shoes. Works great with or without cleats.

          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.
