Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 Cleats $32.95
From the peloton to your feet.
It's inevitable, the more that you ride, the faster that you'll wear out cleats. And, if you're running Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 pedals, you're going to need the Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 Cleats for their replacement.
Featured here are the Dura-Ace 9000 Blue cleats. These cleats have one degree of float, which is relatively new for Shimano. Historically, both six degree and fixed cleats have been available, with the one degree cleats reserved only for Shimano's pro riders. The one degree cleats provide an added degree of comfort over the fixed cleats, without any loss in efficiency. Additionally, the one degree cleats pivot from the center, rather than the foremost hook, which mirrors your body's movements on the bike. Like previous iterations, they feature a wide base for a positive connection with the pedal, and the direct power transfer you'd expect from Dura-Ace.
The Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 Cleats are available with +/- 1 degree of float and in the color Blue.

Good to Go
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have been riding/racing for a while and these cleats and setup to me offer the best of both worlds. I used to race with toe straps, then the look black(fixed) and red(9 degree) float cleats, Shimano SPD and now the Shimano Dura Ace pedal cleats. The reason I like these is that i don't like all the movement of floating cleats but getting the correct positing with fixed cleat takes some work. This 1-2 degree of float with these Dura Ace blue cleats is perfect to me and the quality of the cleats is Shimano grade and am happy with. I have had for a week and 5 rides and no issues so far with walking tabs falling off. Couldn't be happier and will follow up after a month.

I understand that the if you have 105 pedals, you could still use DA cleats. What is the difference in terms of weight?
The weight difference in the cleat is fairly negligable. The real weight savings will come in the pedals themselves. 105 level SPD SL pedals come in at 285g and Dura Ace weigh 250g.

Can I use these cleats on a R088 shoe to ride on D9000 pedals? Thanks,
Yes, that would work perfectly.

Do these cleats only work with the DA pedals? Since both the zero degree & +/- 6 degree fit Shimano's other SPD SL pedals, I have to assume that these do, too, but it's not specified here. Please advise. Thanks!
Sorry Davin, I should have elaborated a little more. Yes, they work with other SPD SL pedals not just the DA 9k.
