    Just a little bit better.

    Shimano’s SPD pedals have been around forever and, aside from a few additions here and there, have remained pretty much unchanged. The reason is simple: Shimano got it right the first time. The M530 still uses Shimano’s tried-and-true SPD retention system, but it incorporates a larger platform to add a bit of support in gnarly sections of trail where you’re tossed around.

    The M530 SPD MTB pedal incorporates the same smart features that SPDs have incorporated for years. The dual-sided pedals make clipping in a snap. Sealed cartridge bearings make them pretty-much maintenance-free, although if you need to take them apart to clean and grease the internals, it can still be done without any SPD-specific tools. Finally, there’s the tension adjustment, which is why many believers have been riding SPDs for years. With a 3mm Allen wrench, you can adjust the release tension of your pedals, so you can customize the feel to your exact comfort level.

    Excellent pedal at an excellent price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    You must to know how much I love these pedals.Easy to get into and out of. Very easy to install it on your bike. Using these pedals I have increased my performance. Great set of pedals for the money. I'm a new rider and I extremely recommend it.

    Great to get you started

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was never strongly drawn towards clipless pedals, but after a few years I figured I'd give it a shot. Fortunately, these pedals were made for people like me. The larger platform makes it simple and easy to ride with or without cleats and the dual-sided entry makes it so that even clumsy folks such as myself can easily get clipped in. Although they aren't lightweight by any means, they definitely cut down on weight from my old jumping pedals. For the price and the ease of use, these pedals can't be beat!

    Nice Beginner Clipless Pedals

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought these for the big step into the clip less realm. They had just come out with the technology when I put bicycling on hold some thirty years ago. Great price, nice pedal. Pretty much put them on and took off. Have only had them on the bike for a week or so as there was a hold-up with the shoe part of the equation. They are very easy to get into. Sometimes I just put my foot on the pedal and I'm in! I am still a little stiff getting out of them as the motion is not fluid or natural for me just yet, but that will come with time. I bought the beginner cleats (SH-56) in addition to this purchase due to what I read online. Don't know if that was necessary, (haven't tried the cleats that came with the pedals) but it is nice to be able to unclip with a right or left twist. Read I could also unclip by lifting but have not been able to have that motion release. Have not played with the adjustable clamping feature as I have been using them right out of the box, but like the fact that clamp tension can be varied.

    So, if you are wondering about going Clipless, I feel you can not go wrong buying these. Sheesh, Competitive Cyclist is just about giving them away. They are cheaper now than when I purchased a month ago! I am thinking about buying a set for the roadbike too at this price. Saw a lot of reviews listing them as heavy, and I guess they are compaired to some, but I have 30 to 40 pounds to trim off my body so a few grams is nothing. Finding inexpensive shoes is another issue unto itself.

    Cheap and Easy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Had a pair of these on my hardtail previously; not what anyone would consider as light but durable. Just bought a pair to put on my road bike so I could use have more options in footwear for commuting to school. If you need a solid pedal that wont break the bank these would be your jam. The large platform is super supportive and makes these a great first pair of clipless pedals. This also allows you to ride to the store without cleats to pick up a sixer.

    Everything I need in a pedal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am an avid road cyclist that likes to do 25-100 mile day rides and have been getting in to multi-week tours which cover 400-700 miles. Despite the fact that I don't ask for too much out of a pedal, these really deliver. Shimano quality and a great value. I anticipate getting 1000s of issue-free miles out of them.

    One side had a bad bearing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these as a gift for my GF for her first clip in shoes. The price is right but there is definitely a difference between these and the XTs. On her second ride she noticed a bad click in the pedal. I took it apart and found the bearings bound up. As a pro bike racer I had the tools to do this but am not sure anyone else would.
    After the rebuild and some new grease they work perfectly and she hasn't had another issue. As others haven't reported this issue it may just be a one off.

    I'd still probably recommend them for entry/intro level.

    Great pedals

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great quality pedals. These are my first pair of clipless, and they feel very stable. They have a nice weight to them; not to heavy and not too light. I like that the platform is a little larger; it's more forgiving for those of us who are far from pro-status with the use of clipless. I also love how you can adjust the cleat retention. Because of how much I liked these, my husband bought a pair as well!

    No Joke. Full Stoke

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I run these pedals on both my AM and DH bikes. They're stupid strong and not too much heavier than their more expensive counter parts. The added cage helps when things get rowdy. Additionally the cage gives you the confidence to still charge those rocks even if you aren't clipped in.

    No Joke. Full Stoke

    Best SPD pedals I have.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a few others, but I like these best. The "cage" allows you to knock the padle into position for cleat insertion, it's subtle, but it helps a lot. I've uses normal shoes on these also, it's OK, not as bad as I expected.

    Pleasant Surprise

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

    I was looking for some inexpensive SPD pedals for my old Raleigh touring bike that was just rebuilt, and I was enticed by the price on these. These are the first wide platform pedals I have bought, after using SPDs for over 20 years. All I can say is that after riding about one block I was wondering why I never tried them before. They feel so much more stable and comfortable than smaller pedals, and they are also easier to get in and out of. I use Sidi MTB shoes for all my rides, and I am thinking about switching out the pedals on my other 5 bikes to these pedals. The only question remaining is how durable they will be, but I have other SPD pedals I have used for years and years with no problems whatsoever, so I am sure these will be the same. I think the average rider could not possibly go wrong with these, especially for the price.

    Great pedals

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

    I got this as my first set of clipless pedals for my road bike and I'm very happy with them. I decided to get these vs. other lighter ones for a couple of reasons. First, I decided on spd/mt shoes because I wanted to be able to walk. Second, I wanted double sided entry so I don't fumble as much when in traffic. Last, I got the m530 vs the m520 because I wanted a slightly larger platform in case I wanted to sprint over to the store or a friend's house with my street shoes. Overall I'm very happy with them after two short rides (8mi and 20mi), it makes a big difference being clipped in, and I haven't had any issues clipping out, yet.

    As far as weight, until I'm at my ideal body weight I'm not gonna worry too much about a few grams here or there on the bike. I paired them with a mid-level mt shoe (LG Montana XT3) because I wanted as stiff as possible on a budget.

    I will say that I rode wearing flip flops to a friend's house last night and that was less than ideal- they definitely don't have a flat platform and can be mildly slippery. In the future I'll stick to sneakers. If this is a concern for you, go for the a530 but you lose the double-sided entry.

    Overall, very stoked as my first pair of clipless pedals and I definitely recommend them. Probably won't be upgrading them any time soon.

    Winning Pedals!

      These pedals rock! These are my first time using this types of pedals and I can't imagine using anything else. You can adjust the tension so when you are starting you can make it lose for easy release. Then as you progress and want to stay locked into your bindings you can increase the tension so it takes more force to release. The other great thing about this binding is if you find yourself in a sketchy section you can clip out and still set your foot on the pedal. I think this is a great comfort especially for someone starting out with clipless pedals.

      I use these with my Diadora Escape 2 Women's Shoes. Here is the link to them:

      These are on my Juliana Furtado Bike, link here:

      Great to ride loose

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      cranked them down to make it easy to snap out and it. Makes for just the right amount a resistance to get out quickly. I was always a bit nervous with clipless, in constant fear of the bike chasing me down a fall. However, these are easy in and out, and you can easily ride them without cleats if you wanna race down to grab some beer on a Friday night but are too lazy to throw on your mountain bike shoes.

      Hey, I have Mavic Crossride XL pedals on one bike, will I be able to wear the cleats that came with those with these pedals? I purchased them as part of a shoe promo sale you had yesterday.
      Thanks, Mike

      Are cleats included? If so which ones ....SH51's?

      Anyone know what the weight for these...

      Anyone know what the weight for these pedals is? I'm not weight-weeny or anything. Just comparing.
