- M530 "trail" pedals?
I recently switched from the normal SPDs onto some XT trail ones, and was dubious as to how much of a difference it would make.
I’ve actually found that my foot feel much more secure on the trail pedals though, and are much more comfortable during a long day in the saddle. The cage may be minimal but it prevents your shoe from having as much give and spreads the load a tad more making them far more comfortable. I’ve found the extra support has made me feel a bit more confident on the techy stuff as well.Posted 4 years ago
I’m not asking if Platform SPD’s work I’m basically asking if this:
With it’s rather minimal looking cage, works as well as
Both of which I already own and get along with pretty well, but now there’s a newer slightly cheaper alternative option available…Posted 4 years ago
I’ve just stolen my SS MTB’s M520s to go on a road SS bike.
Which means I’m looking at getting some new pedals for either the SS MTB or my Geared HT and swapping the M424s from my HT onto my SS MTB.
The M530 “Trail” platform type pedal seems like a viable cheaper option at the minute, but how does it compare for foot support/additional grip to my older M424 and M636’s?
Shimano’s newer “Trail” platform type pedals generally look to have a relatively minimal fixed platform/cage arrangement compared to the older pop up type platform SPD pedals, So does it really do very much?Posted 4 years agobreatheeasyMember
My M530s are good at clipping into – that extra bit at the front really seems to get pedal in the right place for me to stomp into it.
In terms of support, I’d say no real difference to 520s to be honest. Certainly wouldn’t like to do some techie stuff unclipped but using it as a platform pedal a la my M424s.Posted 4 years ago
