    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.

    • Sealed cartridge

    great for cruising around

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I use these on a commuter bike and they are perfect. Well made, sturdy and good looking enough. They work with SPD MTB cleats. I have not had any problems with them being too slick. I wouldn't use these for anything other than cruising around town but they are worth the price and I have no complaints.

    Shallow lean angle. Pedal strike risk.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like this pedal, but have become increasingly concerned about how shallow a cornering angle causes a pedal strike. I provide a picture example and compare them to a 37 degree lean offered by speedplay zeros. I never strike my speedplays nor even the mtb variant the M530. I struck this pedal 3x the first week I had it mounted on my 2017 Specialized Diverge DSW. The angle shown in the picture is not very radical for even moderately aggressive riding, or more concerning, emergency maneuvers in traffic around cars and pedestrians. In my case, the angle is likely somewhat shallower than on a more typical road bike: The Diverge has a lowered BB and my crank is also the longest size, 175mm. If you buy this pedal, test the roll angle for yourself and see if you can keep the bike more upright in all circumstances.



    If the angle works for you, then:



    Pros: Both sides of the pedal do their cleated/street shoe job fairly well.

    the larger surface area of the street shoe cage seems to spread force

    across the lugs and soul of the clipped shoe, yielding seemingly better power transfer.



    Cons:

    Clipping in on the one cleated side can be tricky in traffic

    Shoe lug contact with street shoe side creates traction that may keep your foot from return to a more neutral position on the next stroke.



    Advise avoiding use on bikes with lowered BBs and long cranks. It seems that any design that could support the flip function would have this same problem.



    These are well made. Generally work well and look good, but you have to consider whether the lean angle would for your bike.

    Shallow lean angle. Pedal strike risk.

    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.

    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.

      Great For Pretty Much Everything

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use my bike(s) for everything from century rides and mountain biking to my daily commute. Some days I know I don't need to go clipless and just want to wear my regular shoes to ride to and from work. I did some extensive research into "casual" clipless shoes and other pedal platforms, but found all of the other options too expensive or just not meeting my needs.

      These pedals work great with all of my shoes, both clipless and casual. I know some people have complained about having to look down to flip the pedal over to clip in, but I've only found myself doing this maybe 1 out of 20 times I clip in.

      The platform side is big enough to use comfortably with regular shoes, but small enough that you hardly notice them when you're using the other side. Sure, they weigh more than the less bulky versions, but I think we could all save some weight in our bodies before our bike could. The platform is also great for those sketchy descents that make you question why you ever decided to attach your feet to a rolling piece of metal in the first place.

      If you're looking for a reliable do it all pedal that can be used for commuting, mountain biking, or those long road rides, then you've found them.

      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!

      Are these pedals compatible with Diadora Tornado Shoes?

      Thanks!

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