    Your most versatile accessory.

    Changing pedals is a task even the most diehard mechanic dislikes. Clockwise, counterclockwise, right thread, left thread — do any of us ever get it right the first time? For this reason the Shimano A530 SPD Pedals may just become your pedal of choice.

    While most pedals feature either a one-sided design (road) or a two-sided (mountain) interface, the A530 takes the SPD and mates it to a platform for an all-in-one package. Now you’re able to ride the trails to work and then put on your boots for a night on the town when the clock is punched. With steel spindles and sealed-cartridge bearings, they are built to last. The platform is an ovalized, oversized aluminum plate that works with any shoe. The cleat side is Shimano’s tried-and-true SPD, and a set of cleats is included to get you rolling right out of the box.

    Great for dual duty

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    For someone who uses their road bike for fitness and commuting around town these are great. Convenient for use with sneakers or clip in shoes.

    Good pedals for short rides

      It doesn't provide the traction for hard trails, and it's not that quick to select the side of the pedal you want to use. Great if you use it to commute. Don't take this to a race!

      Great pedals

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use the Shimano A530 SPD pedals on my mountain bike and they work great. There is an adjustment bolt on the clip to make it easy to get out of the pedal before you crash.

      Great cheap commuting pedal

        I've got these on my commuter (Specialized AWOL). They are great pedals. Cheap, light, clips work well flat side good enough. If you are going to spend the majority of your time using the flat side I'd look for something else. But if you are going to be clipped in most of the time and use the flats once in a while these are a great solution.

        Good price for a good product!

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Fast shipping! Good lightweight pedals wanted something that works and they do ! Clips work great ,easy to use and other side works with regular shoes well enough to get by with if your not getting crazy on them! Hardest thing is getting the shoe off the pedal when it's not on the bike yet ! LOL had to see how they clip on had to put pedal on bike with shoe attached then try to put on to get shoe loose . Ha Ha.

        A530 - Disappointing

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        The "cleated" works well, but the "platform" side of of the A530 is so narrowing that approximately 1/3 of rider's shoe is completely unsupported.
        Other 2-sided Shimano pedals are a better choice.

        Great for learnin

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are great for figuring out how to clip in without going full on clipless. My dad uses these to practice on tech sections he feels are a little over his head. We both agree that they need to have a little move traction on the flat side.

        Options

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The A530 is a solid choice for those learning to ride clipless. I recently purchased these for my 10-year old son who is beginning to make the leap, and they've worked great. A reliable Shimano pedal with easy options for flat (i.e. regular shoes) or clipped (i.e. cycling shoes). This helped us avoid the pedal swapping each time his confidence swayed during the process. Worth mentioning that these are also lighter than the PD-M374 at roughly the same price.

        Exactly what I needed

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I was looking for a peddle that could meet my needs - weekday commuting and weekend riding. and this Shimano peddle does the trick. I wouldn't use it for downhill racing, but that's not what I bought it for.

        Converted!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        After a month of fumbling around and getting used to clipping in - I am finally fully converted and love these pedals. I paired mine with Shimano SH-RT82 Shoes (SHI0418). On my Scott Sub 30 commuter bike they are perfect for riding to work or downtown!

        works well, but not ideal

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These pedals are inherently a huge compromise, and I take that into account when giving them a 3-star rating. These are used on a commuter bike.

        First, the good: Classic SPD durability and reliability. They work all the time, and they almost always give a nice reassuring 'click' when you're clipped in. They aren't too heavy. They look nice, especially in black. They're built well for the price. You can find them on sale pretty often for ~$50. You can ride with cleats and with regular shoes (this is the main reason you would buy this pedal).

        The bad: The bearings are a bit stiff, so the pedals don't roll over to the same position every time, meaning you're always looking at your pedals to make sure you're on the correct side. If the bearings were smoother, and the platform fell to the bottom all the time, that would help. Speaking of the platform, it's not that great. It's a good shape and size, but there really isn't a lot of grip. If you're wearing skate shoes while it's dry, you'll be fine, but if you try to ride in any other shoes, and heaven forbid in rain or snow, you're going to slide off the pedals if you apply any real torque to them.

        I realize that you buy this pedal as a compromise, but it's too much of a compromise. The SPD interface works well, just like all Shimano SPD's, but the lack of consistent pedal orientation makes them hard to deal with. But the real deal breaker is that the platform just isn't that good. If the platform was really grippy, or had some pins or set screws in it like true MTB platforms, these would be worth it, because then you could actually trust the platform.

        As is, they're too much of a compromise for me, and don't do either thing well enough to warrant using them. I'll be switching to XT or XTR trail pedals, with double-sided cleat entry, and enough of a platform that I can ride them with street shoes on if absolutely necessary.

        Great, lightweight pedals

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The pedals are nice because you can use them as clip-ins or wear street shoes with them. However, I'm a beginner still with road cycling and it was a little annoying to have the pedals constantly switch over to the clip in side every time I stopped. Still, it's a great lightweight pedal!

        Are these pedals compatible with Diadora Tornado Shoes?

        Thanks!

        When purchasing the A530, is the price for a pair or one

        Are these compatible with the Women's Manta Giro Shoe? Looking for a versatile shoe/pedal/cleat combination for touring & commuting.
