    PD-M530 MTB SPD Pedals

    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.

    • Larger pedal provides performance for cross country mountain biking
    • Dual-sided entry for easy access on all sides
    • Equipped with 2-bolt SPD cleats for setting up your kicks
    • Sealed cartridge bearings stay clean and grime-free for years of use

    Best Budget Pedals!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times
    Fit:
    True to size
    Height
    6` 2"
    Weight
    185 lbs

    These are great. As an avid road cyclist but new to MTB I didn't want to break the bank trying out clipless on the trails. these are great for up and down and I have smashed them into a bunch of rocks - they still look good. With an aluminum bike anyways I didn't care much about the weight (It's just more exercise right?!). Only gripe is that after jumping with bad form (landing tweaked) I did pop out sideways which was not ideal, but I can just adjust these to be tighter.

    Great, standard mtb pedal

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    These are a great standard pedal for your mountain bike or cross bike. They're a little heavier, so I would stay away from these if you're looking to save a few grams.

    Great for versatile townie bike

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I put these on townie bike and they are great. Comfortable enough to wear sandals but nice to be able to wear bike shoes if necessary. Warning don't buy if weight is a concern.

    I can't get my foot out

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    These pedals are great and slick but I can't seem to adjust them to a setting low enough so that I can un-clip quick enough to not fall over but not hard enough so that I almost kick the car/rider next to me. I have adjusted these suckers to be as loose as I can but that's the only issue. Still so great!

    Get the Shimano multi release cleats. That's what I'm going to do.

    My SH56 multi release cleats have served me well for over 10 years, now on their 3rd set of MTB shoes. They're very durable and unclip reliably under all conditions. I highly recommend replacing the standard cleats with these.

    Great for the price!

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    Looking for an SPD pedal that wont break the bank? This is the right where you need to be! It may be a little heavier than it's XT and XTR big brothers but they work great and can take a beating. I've put about 500 miles of hard trail riding, smashing them into rocks, crashing on them, lift serviced bike park laps, and still no problems.

    Not the best but they work

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    If you’ve ridden spd like pedals before, and liked them, you will feel very familiar on these pedals. The only draw back is the weight. By far the heaviest trail pedals I’ve ridden so far and the bearings are very low grade.

    Just what I needed

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

    This was a gift for my father for his birthday. He's an avid road and mountain biker, not necessarily "hard core", but loves the climb and bikes everyday. His Feedback: Easy of Use: the pedals are easy to clip in and out of, no issues whatsoever. Quality: good, solid quality, a bit heavy but doesn't mind the bit of extra weight. Overall: He would purchase again, and might do so for his other bike out of state. The quality for the price was a great purchase.

    First SPD clipless pedals

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I've had clipless pedals on my road bike for years, but I only recently got these for my mountain bike prior to a 100 mile desert biking trip. They worked great, with the platform allowing me to still feel comfortable if I wasn't able to clip in immediately. With the shoes that I got, it's a little bit harder to clip in due to the bottom of the shoe interfering with the platform, but it wasn't too much of an issue.

    Good for a backup pair

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I got these pedals to use them as a backup pair for a set of Shimano XT pedals. The overall shape and feel is very similar to a Shimano trail pedal like the XT or the XTR so if you are used to one of those shapes, using the M530 will feel very natural. The drawback is the pedals are heavy and do not spin nearly as smooth as the nicer offerings from Shimano. For the price though, these are worth buying to just throw in your car so that you always have a set of pedals around if like me you tend to transfer pedals between bikes a lot and have gotten to the trail head before sans pedals.

    Awesome First Pedal!

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

    Bought those for my girlfriend to introduce her to the world of clip less (clip-in) pedals. Typically, I prefer the XC-style pedals without the extra platform, but she found it easier to clip in. Great item! Shimano is the way to go for all-things clip-in! Please reach out to me at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any questions!

    Exactly what I wanted

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I use these on one of my road bikes because they let me use shoes I can walk around in when I get where I'm going, but still offer the advantages of using a clipless pedal. Dual-sided entry is easy to engage. Wider platform allows limited use of street shoes for short periods. I like these a lot better than my dual-purpose (SPD/flat) pedals which I plan to replace soon.

    Works well

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I was looking for something to replace my old, speedplay pedals after my road shoes fell apart. Instead of buying new shoes, I decided to use my mountain bike shoes for all of my riding these days. These pedals feel great while riding and got them at a great price.

    Still getting used to it

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    This is my first spd pedal and I'm pleased with the overall performance. it's easy to get out of in a pinch, but it's a bit more difficult to clip in. I'm new to this type of pedal, so I'm sure with a few more rides under my belt I'll be able to adjust to it.

    >Rating: 4

    Uneducated buy. But still works great

    Both sides are clips. In hinde sight. Might have splurged the 43.99 for the pedal/clip combo jobs. Nonetheless, clips are the single greatest advantage in the mtb world.

    Really Enjoy SPD Clip Ins

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I have always enjoyed SPD clip in pedals. This specific pedal has a great shape and enough surface area if you are not looking to clip in and do a quick ride down to grab some fro-yo. Easy to get clipped in and un-clipped as well! Definitely recommend this pedal from beginners to high intermediate bikers.

    From a Beginner - Awesome

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    So I had never clipped in before buying these pedals, and finally decided to bite the bullet. Soooooo worth it! Backstory: I bought a sweet new bike to commute to town for work, and my ride home is about 7 miles and 1000 feet uphill. Hoping the pedaling efficiency would be worth the investment in pedals and shoes, I set aside my fears of toppling over at an intersection and went for it. Long story short, my fears were way overblown. I'd commuted to work for years in the flatter lands of the Texas Hillcountry, and needless to say, riding bikes is flat out fun regardless of steed or style. My first day clipping in with these SPDs, I was convinced I'd never own a bike build for pavement without clipless pedals again. These make a lovely click when you step in, so you're assured of your purchase. That said, the platforms are large enough to suffice in the event you're (I'm ?) not versed enough to nail 100% of your clips at every intersection after you've waited for your turn to get back spinning. Getting unclipped is simple, I've yet to blow an unclip and embarrass myself, though I'm certainly sure to now that I've jinxed it. What these pedals aren't is light, they're made of bomber metal and are quite substantially weighted. I'm not docking them any stars, however, as I don't feel like this is a racing or lightweight branded item. These are purpose built, and that purpose is solidity. They'll get you where you need to go, without fail, day after day. And the price point is unreal, truly. Save a buck here and get a sweet pair of shoes.

    Economical and robust

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I put these on my mountain bike last summer and proceeded to ride the living sh*t out of them. At one point I thought the bearings had gone out on the right pedal, but the problem mysteriously healed itself without me having to take the pedal apart. Huzzah! I'm quite pleased with the abuse they've survived, given their rather inexpensive price tag.

    Excellent pedals

    Have had these pedals for a few years and love em. They've withstood a heavy amount of hard cross country riding as well a decent amount of downhill. The wide/long base gives great support. With good maintenance, I plan on using these for a few more years.

    Do these pedals come as a pair, or do you have to buy two? Thanks.

    Hi Tom, These do come as a pair, so no need to place two orders. I'd be happy to discuss the details of these pedals or help get an order placed if you'd like! -Kody

    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

    Hey Bikenaked, You shouldn't use the Mavic cleats on these Shimano pedals, they use a different retention system. Feel free to contact me with any other questions! Ben brabinowitz@backcountry.com 801-746-7564
