one big difference

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size
Weight
214 lbs

Have been using SPD yellow for years and decided to go one step less float. I noticed that there seemed to be better transfer of power but that may have been due to switching from old yellows which were quite warn. The big difference comes in trying to unclip. Yellows are a simple rotation of the heel out and they release. With Red when I tried the same maneuver I wasn't releasing (fortunately I could keep on going, otherwise it would be Arte Johnson from Laugh in) and I had to figure out that after a rotation of the heel out slightly less than usual it is a lift up that gets you freed. Try this while holding on to a wall or fence before you try it on the road.

The best !

This is all I use now on all my shoes. I used look cleats for a while. Tried these and I’ve been using them for 3 years on all my shoes now. Reliable , durable and well made.

This is my second set. I chewed up my last set as a newbie by dragging my feet while learning. I tried a cheaper cleat and immediately felt the difference. This is the perfect cleat, and I'm not changing for the foreseeable future.

I switched from Look to Shimano last year, best decision I made, easier to walk in and clip in.

biggest offset, always solid

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've been using the Shimano SH11 Yellow for a long time. If you get your cleat fit near perfect, you can go with the reds. Blue if you're solid since they don't have any play at all. The SH11 Yellow have the most play for those moving feet. There are some generic brands just as good and half the price these days. These usually last a few months before they need changing. You can get a cover for them if you really want to protect them and they will last longer.

I only use these cleats. No need to buy anything else. I get new cleats every season and these are my go to. They work great.

Good replacement cleats

Wouldn’t use anything else. The whole system is pretty comfortable getting into, riding, getting out of. We replace our cleats every seasons or two.

What can I say. These are just good replacement cleats. I prefer the ones with float because it saves my knees. I would recommend.

Glad I got them

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've had Shimano road pedals for a while and love them, so when I got new road shoes, I decided to put on new cleats. Guess I didn't realize how worn my other cleats were -- these work great and have that nice snappy new-cleat feel. Definitely recommend.

The reason I use shimano pedals

These cleats last a really really really long time. The pedals they attach to tend to do the same. Pretty walkable for a road cleat.

Quality Cleats

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Shimano cleats that get the job done and last quite a long time. If you're not sure which color to pick up, most people go with the yellow cleats (6 degree float), unless you know you're looking for the Red (fixed float).

Just works

Be sure to scuff up the bottoms before riding where you need to stop quickly or often (city riding) as the retention is too tight until you break them in a little.

The DA cleats will last for ages. I like to go with the yellow version with 6dgrees of float, which are easy on the knees.

Great cleats

Familiarity:

These cleats are easy and inexpensive to replace. Light weight, but a little bulky. Not designed for walking, duh. But, they will get you from your bike to the car/garage. I have never had one slip out.

Backup Cleats!

I just bought these cleats to have a backup to my current one. These are same as the one that came with my pedals. Not any complaint with these cleats!

I just installed the shimano pd-rs500 spd-sl, with the shimano yellow cleats (Came as a package) Question: Does the pedal spring tension adjustment affect the Float? (Shoe to pedal lateral play)

Thank you for your questions "Newto Roadbike"! The float on each Shimano road cleat is specific to the color, though the pedal tension (release tension) is adjustable. if it is hard to clip in and out, I would recommend taking a 2.5mm hex and turning the small bolt on the top of the pedal counterclockwise. This will lower the spring tension. As for the float on the cleats, the yellow cleat will have the most float coming in at 3 degrees of float - blue with 1 degree of float - the Red will 0 degrees of float. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email me directly at krakowski@competitivecyclist.com. Cheers!

Will the yellow float cleats work with PD R9100 pedals. I just ordered some to replace my old 2001 dura ace and am not sure if I will need to change my cleats or not. I would rather keep the float for knee problems.

>Rating:

would these fit for SPD 5800 series? I have 105's peddles.

Yes, this will fit the 5800 series pedals.

What about the new Ultegra 6800 pedals?

What is the difference between fixed and floating? I ride fixed gear

Some people prefer a fixed cleat, some need float, and most people don't know because nearly all pedal/cleat systems are floating unless you request otherwise. If you do go with fixed cleats, alignment becomes much more critical. It also depends on your personal physical characteristics and bike setup.

Are these cleats compatible with the 9000 D/A pedals? Thanks!

You would need item #SHI0664 for the Dura Ace 9000 pedals. They are slightly different.

I am getting some SIDI 3-hole compatible shoes and want to use these at the Y with their SPD pedals: Schwinn Triple-Link. Will this cleat set work, maybe with an adaptor, or not?

I

From all the research i did quickly they seem to need a Look Cleat but i don't know which one there is the older classic Look Cleat and the newer Delta Cleat you might try asking Schwinn. The Y may also have Cleats for Sale.

Does anyone know where I can get cleat covers for these?The outside yellow pads have already worn away and I've only had the shoes about 2 months.

Yes, these babies wear very fast. Backcountry doesn't carry them yet but many local bike shops carry a nice cleat cover for spd-sl by the brand Kool Kovers. Get some when you replace those wore out cleats!

does this cleat mount to the 3 hold (triangle) type shoes?

Yep, just make sure that you have Shimano SPD-SL pedals, too.I highly, highly recommend the FLOATING version of this cleat. 99% of the riders on the road should be using the floating cleat! The fixed version of this cleat is for those that have had their bio-mechanic's dialed in. If the "average joe" puts the fixed version on their own shoes, it could result in knee issues. Bottom line - go with the floating version! (Yellow one)
