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

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.

Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

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.

Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

Very good quality and versatile. Lets me use my bike shoes or tennis shoes. Good platform on unclipped side.
Have had couple of incidents where the clips would not easily unclip. I'm used to Crank Brothers SPD clips on my road bike and love how easily I can clip in and out of them. These clips are not really tension adjustable. I've tightened and loosened the set screw and still the clipping and unclipping is harder than it should be. Set screw didn't appear to make any difference. Once clipped, they are secure and reliable. Just give yourself some advance time to be sure they unclip before you have to stop. Have put on a few hundred miles with these clips and still hasn't loosened up the unclipping. Does definitely aid in the pedaling efficiency being clipped in.

    Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

    I have put these pedals on several of our family bikes so we can bike the bikes with non biking shoes for short rides around the neighborhood or with biking, SPD, shoes when going for longer rides. They are very versatile and very pleased with them.

      Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

      I have Shimano spd shoes and spd pedals on my mountain bike so i wanted a spd pedal for my road bike so that i could wear the same shoes. I was a little concerned about always being clipped in because some of the places I ride (traffic) and wanted to be able to unclip and ride on the platform when necessary. I rode 84 miles on them the first weekend I had them and am very happpy with them. Really pleased with this purchase.

      I will say that the platform side is not ultra sticky. It worked well w/ my shoes and my application but if you wanted to ride on the platform side predominantly it may not be the perfect pedal. I like it because i can also jump on my bike in sneakers if I just want to ride around the neighborhood.
      They are a little stiff clipping in and out but I am told that they should loosen up with use.
      I have recessed cleats in my shoes and they worked well w/ my shoes.

        Comments about Shimano A530 Sport/Touring Road Pedal:

        Love these pedals. Put them on my hybrid. Allows me to use my clips or just bop around with sneakers. Much more efficient pedaling with clips. Easy to get in and out. Adjustable tension. Have only put on about 50 miles and will wait to see if they loosen up a bit before I adjust the tension. Very secure when clipped. Has a bit of free play but no problem with that. Look good and easy install. Shimano clips are included with the pedals-a nice plus. I'm sure they'll last a long time.
        Definitely recommend these.

            have these on two different road bikes. They have a little wider platform which makes them more comfortable on long rides. If weight counts then you would probably not want these but I think they are perfect.
