Great SPD pedal for when you need to clip in and out on the trails. The design for the platform allows for the cleat to rest in properly, and for those rare times that you don't, there is enough of an outer platform to keep your feet in place.

Outer platform helps with long rides, since my MTB shoes aren't as stiff.

I've been an SPD user on my mountain bikes for years (520s), with generally good experience. Always a little difficult for me to "find" in the moment, but always reliable release (especially with the SH56 cleats). Have been using Crank Bros Mallets for a couple years now. Love the platform and ease of "finding". But very disappointed with failures to release. Not many - but more than with the SPD's, & usually with some level of consequence to the ol' bod. Opted to go back to SPD's with the PD530s, for several reasons. First; the more reliable release. Second; so I could still get some platform like with the Mallets. Third; because the 520s were always easy to use & reliable. As usual, the SPD's are difficult for me to "find", but then to add insult to injury, they're very difficult to engage. I need to stomp to engage. And this with adjustment light enough for a few pre-releases (purposefully). I can't see any evidence of mis-manufacturing on either the pedals or cleats (brand new SH56's). I don't know what the story is. Frankly, I'm tired of fussing with it all. So as a result - I think I'm done with clipless. As with my hard-tails - I'm going flats.

        Comments about Shimano PD M530 SLX Trail Clipless Pedal:

        This is quite possibly the best pedals I have used. I've used M520's for quite a while and decided to try this because of the platform. The platform of the M530 makes it easier to 'find' the pedal. And its also far quicker to index the cleats into the pedal than the M520 which often times you will have to roll/spin to get the cleat in. The easiest and quickest pedal to clip in that I used was the M647 but that pedal is much heavier than the SLX M530.

        I also had recently mounted this to my hybrid for city/urban/fitness riding and clipping in from a stop is faster than M520's on my road bike.

        First timers will appreciate the ease of use, just make sure the retention is set towards " - " or the loose setting. These come with single release cleats so change to multi-release if you want a cleat that will disengage by pulling upwards in a panic stop.

              This is my third pair of "lower end" Shimano spd clipless pedals over the past 16 years. They are great in every way. Right out of the box they are simple to get in and out of and the white color matches some of the other components on my new mtn bike. The xtr version looks a tad better, but I couldn't rationalize the price for a few grams of weight reduction. I looked at other brands (crank bros) but why change if these pedals a just about perfect in every way?

                  Comments about Shimano PD M530 SLX Trail Clipless Pedal:

                  I purchased these as a temporary solution until I figured out exactly which $100+ pedals I wanted to buy. After riding them through aggressive single track and freeride trails, I'm finding that I don't need to buy other pedals. They work great, have reliable entry and release, and are holding up. The platform is a little small compared to freeride oriented clipless pedals, but I haven't experienced any issues while riding.
                  Great value, great product.

                    Ride 3 days a week variety of trails from wide singletrack to rough Rocky vertical terrain and have used the M520 and M540 for years. Decided to give these a try though skeptical about the utility of the platform. Once clipped, they feel just like the non-platform versions. The biggest riding difference for me is re-starting on a hill, going up or down. Much more control before you have the chance to clip in. That alone makes me prefer this pedal, but there are other plusses. The outer edge is blank where the 520/540 has a plastic plug that inevitably gets beat to a pulp, and the pedal is ridiculously easy to service; I can disassemble lube and reassemble both sides without removing from the crank in 2 minutes. Oh, and they come with a set of cleats, so you are paying how much for the pedals? Get them.
