It would be hard to review a cleat system without mentioning their partner in crime, the pedals.

I bought these to match up with some Ultegra pedals I picked up used. While we are in the dead of winter at the moment, I've managed to put a few miles on the system and can say that the upgrade was money well spend.

I came from the Time system of pedals and these cleats feel slightly lower profile and "grippier" when not clipped in to the bike. This is good for avoiding the embarrassing floor slips that are especially common in the wet winter months.

Engagement to the pedals is firm and obvious; you know when you are locked in. I elected for the yellow model as I prefer a bit of float in my cleat. Mounting hardware worked perfectly with my DMT shoes.
