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.
