I've had A530 pedals on my road bike commuter for 4 years now, with no real problems like you describe. Although 99.5% of my riding is while clipped in. I only use the platform side for a short trip to the store during lunch break or something. If you really need more grip on the platform side, perhaps add some grip tape to the platform ribs, instead of complaining about it on a forum. And just be glad it's not a completely flat, smooth surface. Then you'd really have issues.

If slipping is a real problem you could try the PD T8000s, might be heavier/more expensive but they're pretty nice.
