Do it all on one set of pedals.

With a large platform on one side, and clip-in compatibility on the other, Shimano's A530 SPD Pedals might just become the commuter's new best friend. Now you're able to run errands around town in your boots, wingtips, or high heels on the weekend, and still clip in for your commute to work come Monday morning — all without the hassle of swapping pedals in between.

Shimano designed the A530 SPD Pedals to be your go-to, everyday set of pedals, which is why they were built with durable steel spindles and low-maintenance sealed-cartridge bearings. One side of the pedals features a large, ovalized aluminum pedaling platform, making them perfectly compatible for a variety of street shoes. The opposite side houses Shimano's tried-and-proven SPD interface, making them equally ready for your cleat-equipped cycling shoes.

The Shimano A530 SPD Pedals are available in one size and in the colors Black and Silver. The pedals include a set of Shimano's SH51 SPD cleats in the package.

  • Steel spindle
  • Sealed cartridge
  • Shimano SPD cleat compatible (2-hole)

Here's what others have to say...

Are these pedals compatible with Diadora Tornado Shoes?

Thanks!

Hey Barbara - These pedals are 2-hole SPD cleat compatible and the Diadora Tornado Shoes require 3-hole road compatibility. Answer is no unfortunately. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

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.

Coworker recommended...

    My coworker recommended this (Spencer Oliphant) and I can only say they are great. I recently bought a road bike and am not ready to go full clip ons. These are great alternative.

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

    Hey David - The price on these pedals is for the pair. I own the A530 SPD Pedals so feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

    Commuting Pedal

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Great price fo the pedal. Mainly use the clips. Like the flats for the occasion ride to the gym. On the heavy side (but I did build up a full ultegra Niner BSB as my commuter).

    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.

      Strange. Pedal dimensions are comparable to standard pedals.

      And, FWIW, stiff soles go along way to remedying "unsupported" shoes, since on most pedals the majority of the foot is not in direct contact with the pedal.

      Don't bother.

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      The platform side of these peddles is dangerous when wet.

      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.

      • 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!

      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.

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

      Yes, the A530 pedals are compatible with the Giro Manta shoes. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a shout. brett@competitivecyclist.com

      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!

      Simple, easy, versatile

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      Just threw these on my commuter bike a few weeks ago and really dig them. Good bang for your buck, solid platform side, and have only noticed one thing that I'm not the most stoked on. That one thing being how stiff they are allows the pedals to stay in place while spinning without your foot on them. This only is bothersome when mounting the bike, and constantly mounting the wrong side then having to flip it. Like I said, minimal and small annoyance, but on my commuter bike its enough to make me squint my eyes a little while tripping over my pedals for the 10th time that ride. Would recommend, and buy again.

      Solid, versatile pedal

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

      I needed the pedal with the platform option. Love the versatility and the price was nice too. Can't go wrong with Shimano products.

      Straight Forward Versatile Pedal

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Got these for my wife for her first road bike. She wanted to have both the option of platforms and clips. She's got no complaints. They'll hold up great even though she isn't as meticulous in her bike care as I am. I've never had issues with any Shimano pedals. Only ones I'll use.
