Being honest, if you're in this market, I'd probably plonk for the M505s above for less money. Reasons: 1. You can't really ride caged SPDs with normal shoes - the pedals have to protrude because the cleats are recessed on the shoe, so they're very uncomfortable indeed to ride for any distance. If you want this option, look for double-sided pedals (A530 are nice) 2. Once clipped in, the plastic cage gives no support to the shoe, so might as well not be there 3. Clipping in rapidly becomes second nature - you should be able to stomp straight in without a second thought, so having the plastic to aim for doesn't really add anything 4. If you're riding in rutted terrain, those big pedals become a real nuisance. If you want a bigger target to aim for, look at the M530s which have a slightly bigger metal cage (but still smaller than these), otherwise stick with the M505s. Regarding legality for road use, virtually no serious road or mountain bike rider will have reflectors on their pedals as none of the clipless pedals support it. It's an outdated rule that has no basis in reality.
I have got these click'r ones but I don't think i would want to do too much gravel/mountain biking on them. They only have one spring on them as opposed to two on a normal clipless pedal so they don't hold you in as tight. I have unclipped a few times accidently with them. They are an amazing commuter pedal though which is what I use them for. Effortless to get in and out of and like others have said a nice platform for if you don't get clipped in straight away when getting off the lights.
Yeah it’s a silly old rule that one, my boots have reflective trim on the heal cup and bikes and clothing are made to be seen these days
Those ones are actually road legal, unlike almost every bike I've ever owned.
Had these on my MTB- I liked the versatility of being able to use them with either ordinary shoes or SPD shoes. Problem is, the plastic cage snapped (I think I bashed a rock or something) - I replaced it, and the new one snapped off again pretty quickly. Might be better looking for similar pedals with a metal cage if your style of riding requires something more durable.
