    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

    Rubber side down

      These cleats work great. They release in those sketchy moments when my previous standard Shimano cleats would have me wreck or tip over. They do have a tendency to come un-clipped more unexpectedly, but I prefer that over wrecking. I found that compared to the standard black cleats, you need to add two rounds of preload to the SPD pedals.

      Great Set of Cleats

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      I bought these to use with my Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch II Mountain Bike Shoe and they have been working out great for mountain biking. I'm even using them on some older pedals that came on the mountain bike I purchased and they married well with no adjustment.

      1st Clips

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Read many reviews and decide this is the one for me. The clips are secure and since these were easier to release they fit the bill. Easy to install and adjust. Ease of getting in and out of the pedals make this a winner.

      SPD's

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      SPD's are my favorite cleat / pedal combo. The adjustable tension on the pedals allows you to customize your retention. As stated in previous reviews, these release with less effort than the SH51's.

      Good cleats for easy release

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you want to be able to unclip from your Shimano pedals with ease, the SH56 multi release cleats are the way to go. They are easier to get out of than the SH51 cleats. Consequently, you may have to increase your release tension so you don't have accidental unclips. Oh and these cleats last forever, they are very durable.

      Clip in for MTB or Road

      These are stellar for mountainbiking, commuting, etc. Great quality, longevity and design by Shimano, 10/10. There is a reason these are the gold standard for intro clipless pedal users.

      Works as expected.

      Easy to install, no worries cleat design to fit even my 15 year old SPD pedals. What's not to like?

      My first pair of cleat

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

      I was looking a pair of cleat for my new Shimano shoes and these fit very good to my shoes and my wallet(cheap and worth it). Not much to say, it's a basic but effective cleat

      Painless

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Easy to swap 'em out, and most people (riding SPD pedals) should do it more often! Nice way to get more bite out of your SPD pedal and avoid unexpected releases.

      Almost too easy!

      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.

      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.

      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?

      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...

      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?
