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:

These immediately became of backup set of pedals. My major complaint is that all my weight was centered around the SPD. The pedals did not disperse my weight onto the platform area at all. Both feet were aching after riding the Dark Hallow trail.

      This pedal is so much nicer than a cageless spd. Nice platform for technical downhill sections when you don't want to be attached. Not super light but takes hits well.

          Comments about Shimano PD M530 SLX Trail Clipless Pedal:

          These pedals are just about as good as you can get. They're easy to clip and unclip, but they are a bit heavy. With the cost difference between these and the XT, I'm not sure the extra money is worth the weight difference unless you're super competitive. I know I can lose more weight around my waistline compared to the grams I can drop on expensive bike parts. Plus, with them being a bit more burly, I'm confident that I can bash them on rocks and still get back to the car. You really can't beat the features and function at the price I got them.

                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.
