San Diego, CA
Lighter than my SPD cleats. But wears out faster though. I change cleats at least once a year.
Crisp and quick. It feels light and strong. I have three of them in line whenever I do 12 hour races here at Socal. I use Sram powerlinks for quick removal and installation.
I'm not having a problem after 200 miles of riding. Just replace my shoes and cleats recently and It feels like new again.
My experience with CB Smarty made me skeptical getting this. But with a 20% off coupon and a return guarantee, well i bought it. I used the smarty for about a month resulting in all of my limbs bruised and skinned up. My knee injury even got infected leaving me with constant injury whenever I pedal. So the cheap smarty pedal had to go. Surprisingly ($$$$) this behaved completely different. It was a lot easier getting out, I mean like SPD easy. Getting in is as easy. My pedal effort seemed to have decreased and accelerating is faster maybe due to the weight. I would give this 5 out of 5 for rating. if you have the cash try it...if you don't like it, just mail it back.
Comfy and looks great. I have other jerseys but I seem to wear this more than the rest.
