When I looked into choices of dual purpose pedals, the PD-EH500 pedals looked like they would work perfectly for me and I couldn't be any happier with my choice. Extremely easy SPD to lock and release when wearing my cleats and perfect size platforms with excellent grip for my everyday shoes. Unlike others I've owned in the past, these pedals are much easier to orientate between SPD and flat. The perfect commuting Ebike pedal for road and trail!
A fantastic pedal for the money, versatile and easy to get in and out of. Bought these for myself, but ended up giving them to my wife who was transitioning to clipless pedals. Now I need another pair.
Excellent pedal If you want to transition to clipless technology. I use it for mountain biking, although believe primary purpose is for road. The flat surface allows me to keep pedaling if Iï¿½m having difficulty clipping in - which I usually donï¿½t.
I purchased these pedals to change out existing ones on a Trek FX while riding more during covid. First time riding spd pedals and found it to be extremely easy to get in an out even with the two sided pedal. Flat side has a lot of grip and is great with regular shoes for riding around the neighborhood with kids. Definitely recommend these pedals if you need the flexibility of flats and clipless.
These are perfect for someone like me who wants one bike to do it all. When I go out for a workout ride or a long distance ride, I want to click in with spd cleats. But when I want to take a leisurely ride with my wife, I like to wear street clothes and sandals. These pedals will do either. They are also pretty light for a combo pedal. Well done Shimano!
The quality is in line with similar Shimano products and the pedals are light in weight for the price point. Shimano could use a larger foot platform for the non-clip side and larger pegs as the small size makes them hard to handle when initially screwing in.
