Great for your longest rides or for a ride just around the block, the Shimano PD-A530 SPD pedal has you covered no matter what your ride is. The Shimano PD-A530 SPD is built with a lightweight alloy body so that you won't be weighed down during your ride. With their low maintenance, sealed cartridge axle, you'll spend your time riding your bike instead of fixing it.
Shimano Comfort Design
Lightweight, aerodynamic single-entry SPD design with chromoly spindle provides plenty of strength and stiffness. The aluminum pedal body shaves grams with sealed bearings that will roll smooth with low maintenance. Relax there IS an adjustable entry and release tension. The difference with these pedals and the A-520 is the single sided clip in. The advantage of having this is that you can run to the store, grab drinks with friends or stroll around the neighborhood with sandals! How awesome is that?
