PD-M530s Are Awesome!

By Al G.

from Anaheim, CA

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Durable

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Mountain Biking

    Comments about Shimano PD-M530 Trail Mountain Pedals:

    I consider myself a trail rider: uphills, downhills at a comfortable 10 mph average and 900-1,000 ft elevation gain. These pedals are great for all-around stability. No more feet flying off my pedals while riding through bumpy hardpack! My feet remain planted riding uphill.

    Comments about Shimano PD-M530 Trail Mountain Pedals:

    I bought these to replace the road pedals that came with my bike. I particularly like the wider platform and the double sided entry.I ride 70 to 100 miles per week, and comfort is not a problem.

    Not ready for prime time

    By UberClyde

    from Boston

    About Me Avid Cyclist

    Pros

    • Cheap

    Cons

    • Poor Construction
    • Really Hard To "escape"

    Best Uses

    • Paperweight

    Comments about Shimano PD-M530 Trail Mountain Pedals:

    I have been using SPD pedals for 20 years, and owned many different versions from Shimano and others. Usually Shimano's low-end SPD pedals are functional and robust and provide a few years of problem free performance. These sucked right out of the box. They simply don't release your shoe easily, no matter how loose you adjust the spring. And I found this holds true whether I am wearing my newer shoes with the new cleats or my old loaner shoes with well broken in cleats. I have no confidence on technical trails with these because of the miserable release performance.

      Great entry level pedals. A few steps up from the absolute basic. Great to have both side ready to clip in. Easy to adjust on the fly

        My first set of clipless pedals, I've been very pleased. I ride a road bike and was told to go with mtb pedals because they're easier to learn on. Although I have nothing to compare to, these were very easy to learn on and I've had no issues with them. Very pleased.

        Comments about Shimano PD-M530 Trail Mountain Pedals:

        This design for its price can't be beat. I've used it twice on different trails with moderate to dificult level and is very reliable. Being new to clipless pedals, dismounting is easy in certain conditions.

          More control and more power transfer

            Comments about Shimano PD-M530 Trail Mountain Pedals:

            I believe I have added more control on downhills runs and better power transfer wile climbing with these pedals on a 29 inch mountain bike wheel. Then again, a lot has changed since I rode a 26 inch wheel mountain bike 10 years ago. The springs are awfully tight and have to be loosened quite a bit to allow for quick disengagement. Perhaps they need time for breaking in. Overall, I like them.
