Clip in.

Whether you're stepping up your two-wheeled game and clipping into the bicycle for the first time, Shimano PD-M530 MTB SPD Pedal will connect you to your two wheeled steed for years to come. These easy to adjust pedals will take you across miles of singletrack or down the street to work.

The larger, but not huge, platform  is great for cross country mountain biking, with a more stable platform through rocky sections. Dual-sided entry for quick entry and exit means you won't be nancing around the trail head trying to flip your pedals over so you can clip in. The sealed cartridge bearing spindle requires minimal maintenance and provides buttery smooth action. The design of the pedal also sheds mud efficienty so you don't miss a beat after jumping obstacles in your next 'cross race. The adjustability of the cleat retention system makes it easy to get the exact tension you need for your riding style.

The Shimano PD-M530 MTB SPD Pedal are compatible with two bolt SPD cleats only. Cleats are included with these pedals.

  • Larger platform
  • Dual-sided entry
  • Sealed cartridge bearings
  • Adjustable cleat retention

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.

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!

Great pedals for the money

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

They are not the lightest pedals out there, but they are indestructible. They provide a good bit of support, and if you want to take your bike for a quick ride without your bike shoes you can do that with these.

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!

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

Responded on

Shimano SH51 SPD Cleats are included with these pedals.

Will a pedal with this type of a platform work with a pair of shoes like the SPD Chrome Truk?

Responded on

Hey Cory,
These pedals will work with the Chrome Truk or other shoes that are similar in design.

Great beginner mountain bike pedals

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

I just bought these pedals for mountain biking, never having had clipless pedals. They are great with the extra platform and easy to adjust.

Brand new to clipless

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

These are my first ever clipless pedals and they work great. They were easy to install and haven't had any issues yet.

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:

Great for the price.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These work just as they should for a pedal at this price. Never had an issue with them. Ive had a couple sets of them now and never had issues.

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.

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.

Dual purposes pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love Shimano SPD and have them on all my bikes but I have hard tail bike which a friend borrow when they are in town and they need normal pedal. I decided to get the PD-M530 so I can use it with my Shimano SPD shoe and my friend can also use the pedal with normal shoes. That way, I don't have to switch pedal each time someone borrow my bike. My only complain is that it is heavy and scratches easily.

A little heavy, but great value

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pedals are typically my go to as they are realistically really cheap, they always work, and take a lot to break them. They offer a good range of tension for your cleats, especially if you are learning on clipless and want a really easy action to get your feet out. The only downside is that they are a bit on the heavy side, but easy to live with based on price.

My price range

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My first clip-in pedals, so I didn't want to break the bank. They have worked really well.
