Shimano PD-EH500 vs. PD-T421 pedals

Hi all,

I looking to move from toe clips to a dual-sided SPD/flat pedal. I already own Shimano CT-500 shoes (Shimano CT500).
Shimano recommends either the EH-500 or the T421 pedals.

The differences I see are:

T421: click'r technology (whatever that is) Has reflector. Shimano lists for "Trekking" (Shimano T421)
EH500: pins on flat side. Shimano lists for "Multi-Purpose" (Shimano EH500)

Does anyone understand why one would choose one of those vs. the other?

I don't ride in mud or downhill. I'm an adventure rider on paved (75%), dirt road(25%), and I avoid mud, and am not a mountain biker.

Thanks for the input.
