PD-RS500 Pedals

The Shimano PD-RS500 road cycling pedal provides an ideal platform for novice riders. Tuned with reduced spring tension, the PD-RS500 maintains a secure connection with the cleat but allows for easier engagement and release than pedals aimed for more experienced riders. The larger platform on the body of the PD-RS500 also provides more visual real estate to spot when learning the fine motor-skills needed to use clipless pedals. The extra-wide platform increases power transfer when pedaling and can reduce hot-spots under foot that can result when using narrow cycling pedals. Although Shimano considers the PD-RS500 for novice riders, the easy-in, easy-out design makes it useful for any riders needing a more user-friendly pedaling experience.

Shimano controls wear and tear to the PD-RS500 by incorporating steel plates at the sides of the pedal-shoe interface.

Nice and cheap

I've used it several times

I bought these to put on my single speed and they work like you would expect a shimano pedal to work. However, there are a few things to consider: The pedals are made out of a hard plastic with metal contact points (not chromoly like the old ones). Also, they tend to flip upside down after clipping out; so clipping back in can take a little getting used to (the old metal version was much more balanced). Bottom line: For a pedal at this price point, they do a good job. Would I put them on my carbon road bike? Definitely not. However, if you have a secondary bike you ride at a more casual pace, these pedals do what they are supposed to do and don't cost a fortune.
