SH51 SPD Cleats

The Shimano SH51 SPD Cleats offer four degrees of float, and more experienced riders will typically prefer these over the Multi-Release SH-56 cleats. They take a bit more to get unclipped, but the added security in rough terrain is a worthy tradeoff.

  • Four degrees of float
  • Slightly greater release angle than Multi-Release Cleats
  • Not compatible with older, M858 pedals
  • Item #SHI0341

Material
steel
Compatibility
Shimano SPD
Recommended Use
mountain biking

Great and Simple

Great long lasting cleats for your Shimano pedals. Can't really go wrong here.

So Far So Good

Tough to say much about cleats early on, but these seem like a normal, high-quality, Shimano product.

Be one with the bike

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I prefer being attached to the bike, and the circular motion around the BB with clip ins are INFINITELY more efficient than flat pedals. That's my preference, and while I do not have a preference on cleats, these suited my needs, are solid, and continue to work for years! No brainer

Dependable cleat

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This is Tyson's wife. I use these cleats with my Shimano SH-RP2 Cycling Shoes in indoor cycling classes and I haven't had any issues. They're easier to click in and out of than the shoes I had been renting from the studio.

Get 'Em

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

If you are running Shimano pedals, chances are you are using these cleats. Might as well replace them and get that new pedal feel once again!

Once a year

Familiarity:

Keep your pedals and cleats tight and fresh! Works on all SPD style pedals and provide secure connection.

>Rating: 5

They get the job done

Make sure to screw them tight. If you leave it loose you will have trouble unclipping from your cleat.

Solid System

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a solid cleat that will go the distance without any surprises. I use the Speedplay system on my road bike where I like a little lateral play, but I prefer these for the trail.

>Rating: 5

Gotta have them.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These things last. I'll usually change them out once a year out of habit vs. necessity. Usually, I end up buying them for new shoes which is what I did here. Don't skimp on the SPD compatible clones. They can't match genuine Shimano cleats for precise clip in and release.

The standard for SPD pedals

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I use these with my Shimano XTs. There are a must have and cannot imagine riding without this set up. Competitive had them on sale so I got a second set.

SPD is still setting the bar

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I recently switched to SPD's from another cleat. I really like the adjustable tension on Shimano MTB pedals, and these cleats last forever. While you sacrifice a bit of float vs. other cleat / pedal systems, SPD's are easiest in and out while providing a solid platform.

Essential

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

SPD mountain cleats seem to last forever, or at least a few seasons, but they'll wear out before a set of pedals. That's where these come in. These singe-release cleats are what come stock with your pedals, so you won't be in for any surprises.

>Rating: 5

It's a great cleat

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've never known anything besides SPD cleats/shimano pedals, but they work great so why mess with perfection. The cleats are basically indestructible. Also, the ability to adjust the tension on the pedals is a huge plus.

Why stray from the best?

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I first used SPD pedals on the mountain bike in 1990 and they were such a big step forward compared to toe straps. I never looked back and I have used clipless pedals on the mtb ever since. I did try another brand pedal to shed a little bit of weight, but Shimano SPD's are just simply better. Adjustability, stiffness and a large platform. A big plus are the cleats, which last for ages and do not need to be replaced as often as the competition.

SPD is the benchmark

Affordable and durable, what more can you ask of a cleat.

>Rating: 5

Can't go wrong with SPD

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

What can I say? It's the classic SPD mountain cleat. They have bit of side to side float to keep it easy on the knees. They last a really long time too. I've got a year of regular riding on my current pair and despite showing some signs of wear they still clip in and out easily whilst retaining that signature, secure SPD feeling when clipped in. I much prefer SPD to Crank Brothers or Time because the feeling on the pedals is more secure while still maintaining easy of entry. There's no question when you clip in either because there's always a definite "CLICK."

I'm stuck, to my pedals

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

After many months of using my old cleats and wearing them down from clicking in, hiking around to scout lines, or jsut hanging in the parking lot it was time to replace my old cleats. These things happen, luckily some bike parts aren't as expensive as others. I also like to keep an entire cleat/bolt/slider set up in my pack on rides, if you lose a bolt it can end a ride in a really unfortunate yet preventable way.

New shoes = new cleats

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These cleats last a long, long time. I don't usually move them between shoes so when I get a new pair of shoes it's time to get a new pair of cleats. Be sure to use grease when installing them, and don't over torque them. Doesn't hurt to carry a spare one in your tube wrap or hydration pack in case you lose a bolt or entire cleat on your ride.

i found my old shimano xt pd-m737 but i lost its cleats...do you think this sh51 spd cleats will work?

Does this cleat set include the plate. I recently bought the shimano shoes for my girlfriend and these cleats and neither came with the plate for the screws from the cleat to screw into.

how do i replace the plate in my shoes...

how do i replace the plate in my shoes that the cleat screws into? i stripped the threads, and the cleat ripped out.

You can try screwing the cleat in to the other set of holes in the plate, otherwise Shimano makes replacement plates that can be ordered. Thanks,

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?

Yes, those would work fine. Enjoy!
