Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Does the outer frame contact with the sole of the SPD shoe to spread the contact pressure more and hence being offered as a touring pedal?
I might be wrong, but I think they are referred to as a touring pedal as they are for use with MTB shoes which you can actually walk in (a bit) if you want or need to.
Yes it does make some contact, depends on the style of the shoe sole.
I've recently bought the same pedal. The type cleats used with these pedals and touring style shoes make walking almost normal! I found riding was just as comfortable as my normal road pedals and climbing with a bit of welly no probs.
From the look of it these are single sided clipless to save weight, rather than offering a standard side too. So, SPD shoes only methinks.
Cleats are supplied with these pedals, so no additional items are required.
I read on a review that someone had to turn their foot toward the frame of the bike rather than away from it which I currently do on my mtb, turning towards the frame doesn't fill me with much confidence in the middle of traffic should i need to put a foot down quickly.
I always use double sided SPD's on my commuting bike. The A520's are great for long rides as they provide more support to the foot.
These pedals were supplied with SH51 cleats.
Although theoretically possibly, I do not understand why anybody would want to twist their foot inwards to release.
And more of a reply to a previous answer:
At night pedal reflectors are legally required (on the front and rear of each pedal) unless your bike was made in 1985 or earlier.
https://www.gov.uk/rules-for-cyclists-59-to-82 rule 60
http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1989/1796/schedule/1/made Table III
The law is widely ignored, and can't be complied with by recumbents, and I've never heard of anyone being prosecuted for breaking it, but it does exist, and if you wind up the police or someone's insurance company is trying to get out of paying you, it might matter.
You must have a reflector on the back of the bike, and that's it as far as I know.
If they are a requirement, then it means that most of the clipless pedals on Wiggle won't be road legal. And I'm sure that's not true.
