Start pedaling.

Clip in and get going with the Shimano SH56 SPD Cleat Set. Designed to pair with Shimano SPD pedals, these cleats are multi-release so you can clip out by twisting your foot to either the inside or outside of the pedal. With the option to lift and twist your heel to unclip, these cleats are a great choice for anyone just getting into the clipless pedal game and anyone just looking for quick, easy clip out functionality. Keep in mind that these cleats are not compatible with SPD-style pedals that are not Shimano branded.

  • Multi-release
  • Compatible with all Shimano SPD pedals, except the M858

Almost too easy!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: 150 lbs

I ended up tightening my pedals with these new cleats. They are SO easy to get out of its very nice - especially if you are new to clipless pedals and have a tendency to forget you are clipped in.

Easy Release

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got these cleats for my girlfriends shoe since she was concerned about not being able to release from the pedal. They made it too easy to release and she would unintentionally unclip so the tension on the pedal had to be dialed way up. If you are concerned about not being able to unclip with Shimano pedals, these are the way to go.

Great Cleats

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've gone through a few pairs of these without any issues and will keep buying them when it's time for new cleats.

Non slip on your pedals

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These Shimano SH56 cleats are great easy on easy off. As far as them slipping or coming off your pedals don't have to worry about that have gone about 40 miles on these cleats with no problem .

Just another reason to run Shimano SPDs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I run XT pedals on my mountain bikes, and my cross bike. I use the same shoe while riding all 3 bikes. The SH56 SPD cleats hold up to all the abuse I put them through on all 3 bikes. They have a good solid interface with the pedal for the long life of the cleat...Others don't, in my experience. The float and release angles are just right, and I have not stripped or seized a bolt yet.

no comparison but works well

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I didn't even bother trying the sh51, coming from flat pedals to clipless I really wanted it to be as easy as possible to unclip and bail out...

I've ridden them a handful of times and have had no issues, the three release methods work well, debris has not been an issue in rain, mud, sand, or anything else. going clipless definitely takes some getting used to, but i think these cleats are a cheap way to make sure you have all the options possible to unclip

Minimize the float!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I was surprised coming from SH51's to these that the float difference is very noticeable (Shimano claims 0 degrees). Much prefer no float for power transfer, and these save me from going to SPD-SL, since keeping all shoes and pedals in the quiver SPD is prefered.

Keeps my feet stuck to the pedals!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great cleat, my first clipless experience. Frankly, everyone psyched me out about falling with these. So much drama over nothing!

I became instantly acclimated.

Then again on my first trip I went over the Brooklyn Bridge on a Saturday morning with gobs of crowds of people...I must have had to clip in and out at least 100 time each way...So, I gotta a lot of practice done on my first day with them.

A flick of the ankle, without even thinking about it, and I'm out. If I spaz out in some mud or on ice I pop right out as well.

1000 miles since November.

Some people talk about popping out with these when pulling through the pedal upstroke...I don't think you'd ever have that problem if you're feet have been properly aligned via cleat position/fitting.

Does what they should and they're cheap.

Incredibly Durable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's no secret that Shimano makes the best clipless pedals, they also make the best cleats. They are so durable. I've been riding the same pair for the last two years and they are still in great shape. They can definitely stand up to the abuse of the trail. A great buy!

From your description the Shimano SM-SH51...

From your description the Shimano SM-SH51 SPD cleat have four degrees of float.
How much float does the SM-SH56 cleat have?
Where can I find this information from Shimano?
Thanks for you help.

Responded on

Amazon Website indicated that SH56 has 0 degree float.

I have Shimano cycling shoes and I want...

I have Shimano cycling shoes and I want to use them in my spinning/cycling class. Can road clips be interchanged with the SPD cleat set?

Responded on

You need an SH-85 adapter plate. It goes from road (3-bolt/spd-sl) shoes to mountain (spd/spd-r) cleats (not from mountain shoes to road cleats). Basically you need road shoes to do it. If your Shimano shoes are road shoes you just need the SH-85 adapter plate and a set of spd cleats.

I bought the WM61 shoes for spinning class at my gym. would these cleats work for my shoes and my class? the bikes are SPD compatible, would these cleats be enough or would i need to buy another piece?
