Just a little bit better.

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

These work great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased these for my new bike and I am very happy with them so far! They work great and I have not had any issues with them with my shoes. The larger platform is great for if I am every jumping on my bike quick without my bike shoes on. Very happy with these pedals!

Good value

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've always loved Shimano components and these pedals are no different. They're good quality, work really well and are fair value at the price.

Do these pedals come with cleats?

Hey Philip! Yes, the pedals do come with cleats! Let me know if you have any questions on them or what shoes you should pair them with and I would be happy to help! My direct line is 801.204.4547 or email me at Cheers, Connor

Do what they should!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pedals have been great. They have held up to some serious abuse and although they are a bit heady, they have lasted quite some time. Very happy with them.

Ehh, shoulda got XTs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Work fine, but significantly heavier than XT model. Not as easy to rebuild as XTs either. Dust seal seems to let a lot more dirt in. Kinda wishing I would have got another set of the XTs instead.

Unanswered Question

What size are the shoes and are they like regular shoes because i wear 12.5 in mens

Perfect for my park bike!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love to use these on my bigger bike, I can aimlessly try and find my cleat to clip in while I descend down terrain in the mean time. They are heavy, so if you are concerned about weight, go for the XT version. If you are just looking to get into SPD or a clipless setup in general, these are great starters.

Perform well enough, very heavy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pedals are about half the cost of the XT Trail pedals, but twice the weight. If I had known they were so much heavier I probably would have just splurged. Rotational weight does make a difference...if you want to break in to clipless pedals, do yourself a favor and spend a few more bucks and get something that will be nice enough to last multiple bikes.

Good pedal...Great price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Needed some pedals for my new mtn bike and wanted something inexpensive, yet reliable. Thank you Shimano for delivering! These have held up to some rather aggressive riding with no issues. They are a little heavy, but I'm not willing to spend the extra money just to save a few ounces.

Excellent pedal at an excellent price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

You must to know how much I love these pedals.Easy to get into and out of. Very easy to install it on your bike. Using these pedals I have increased my performance. Great set of pedals for the money. I'm a new rider and I extremely recommend it.

pedal perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

started my son (13) on this pedal, as he started mtb middle school team; works great, no issues; I'm sure would be great for commuters, recreational cyclist new to clipless systems; I've borrowed his bike and they work fine for me.

Great to get you started

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was never strongly drawn towards clipless pedals, but after a few years I figured I'd give it a shot. Fortunately, these pedals were made for people like me. The larger platform makes it simple and easy to ride with or without cleats and the dual-sided entry makes it so that even clumsy folks such as myself can easily get clipped in. Although they aren't lightweight by any means, they definitely cut down on weight from my old jumping pedals. For the price and the ease of use, these pedals can't be beat!

Nice Beginner Clipless Pedals

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought these for the big step into the clip less realm. They had just come out with the technology when I put bicycling on hold some thirty years ago. Great price, nice pedal. Pretty much put them on and took off. Have only had them on the bike for a week or so as there was a hold-up with the shoe part of the equation. They are very easy to get into. Sometimes I just put my foot on the pedal and I'm in! I am still a little stiff getting out of them as the motion is not fluid or natural for me just yet, but that will come with time. I bought the beginner cleats (SH-56) in addition to this purchase due to what I read online. Don't know if that was necessary, (haven't tried the cleats that came with the pedals) but it is nice to be able to unclip with a right or left twist. Read I could also unclip by lifting but have not been able to have that motion release. Have not played with the adjustable clamping feature as I have been using them right out of the box, but like the fact that clamp tension can be varied.

So, if you are wondering about going Clipless, I feel you can not go wrong buying these. Sheesh, Competitive Cyclist is just about giving them away. They are cheaper now than when I purchased a month ago! I am thinking about buying a set for the roadbike too at this price. Saw a lot of reviews listing them as heavy, and I guess they are compaired to some, but I have 30 to 40 pounds to trim off my body so a few grams is nothing. Finding inexpensive shoes is another issue unto itself.

Cheap and Easy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had a pair of these on my hardtail previously; not what anyone would consider as light but durable. Just bought a pair to put on my road bike so I could use have more options in footwear for commuting to school. If you need a solid pedal that wont break the bank these would be your jam. The large platform is super supportive and makes these a great first pair of clipless pedals. This also allows you to ride to the store without cleats to pick up a sixer.

Everything I need in a pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am an avid road cyclist that likes to do 25-100 mile day rides and have been getting in to multi-week tours which cover 400-700 miles. Despite the fact that I don't ask for too much out of a pedal, these really deliver. Shimano quality and a great value. I anticipate getting 1000s of issue-free miles out of them.

Works well.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like these pedals so far. Feel very solid and no issues. Probably not the lightest, but very easy to use. They have taken a pretty good beating this summer, and continue to do the job as it should.

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.
