Shimano A530 SPD Touring Pedals
Shimano PD-A530 Touring SPD Pedals
A totally new concept in half SPD / half 'normal' pedals
Shimano PD-A530 is a totally new concept in half SPD / half 'normal' pedals. Instead of being 'rat trap-style', the non-SPD side is more like a wide BMX-style platform pedal. This is a blessing if you agree that a wide pedal offers the most comfortable foot platform.
- Shimano PD-A530s are the perfect pedals if you sometimes like to ride 'clicked in' with dedicated cleated shoes, and other times prefer to ride 'free style' in any shoe, old or new.
- Adjustable cleat tension means you can start off with loose tension for easy engagement and release, then turn up the tension as you progress.
- Lightweight alloy body
- Supplied with standard SM-SH51 SPD cleats

|I was looking for a pedal I could use either wearing work shoes or with cleats for my longer rides and initially bought PDM 242s. Unfortunately the mechanism sits proud of the resin cages on those making them uncomfortable so I swapped them for these which have been great. Longer rides have been transformed and are much more comfortable. Using normal shoes is also fine although it sometimes takes me a bit to flip the pedal round to the flat side. If you're looking for the best of both worlds, these are probably the right pedals.|
|I bought a set of these pedals for my mountain bike and have been so impressed with them I've ordered a second set for my touring bike. Very positive engagement in the clips, cleats firmly held once clipped but still easy to get out of. Also easy to flip between SPD's and the flats. Superb value at the reduced price!|
|I was tempted to try "clipless" cycling when I noticed these in last year's Autumn sale but delayed fitting them until this Spring since I foresaw a few incidents. The pedals appear to be well made and were easy to fit and adjust. Their main advantage over other SPD pedals is the way in which the other side of the pedal can be used with ordinary shoes when slipping down to the shops.It is also possible to use the flat side when in traffic particularly when not used to being attached to the bike.|
