New cleats feel like new pedals.

These are the cleats that come with your Shimano SPD Pedals. The SH-51 Cleats are black and have four degrees of float for your feet. Compared to the SH-56 Multi-Release Cleats, these are much more secure and are generally preferred for the experienced rider. To get out of your pedal, you'll have to swing your heel out a bit more than the SH-56 Cleats. Please Note: These will not work with older PD-M858 pedals (for those you'll need SH-52 Cleats). On that same note, if you have an aftermarket SPD-style pedal that isn't a Shimano branded pedal, these cleats are most likely not compatible with your pedals even though they might look remarkably similar to a Shimano pedal.

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

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.

Best Pedal/Cleat Interface

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

To me, these cleats are part of the best interface for 2 bolt (MTB) configurations. They enter/exit reliably and predictably, and the cleats themselves tend to last longer than others I've used.

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow.

The pedals have gotten better and better, but the cleats have been the same for decades. I buy a set when i get new bike shoes, which is a little too often.

works 100% of the time... every time.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There really isn't much you can say. I've got spd pedals on my touring bike and (until i upgraded to spd-sl) road bike.

Lots of miles, even holding up to some decent walking. One caviat, my older set of spd pedals the spring started to get worn and I was able to pull my foot out of them straight up (not normal release) on some climbs... however that has nothing to do with these cleats.

SPD Cleats

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy to install and easy to set up. I usually replace these once a year, but I'm sure they will last longer depending on use.

Killer Cleats.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Classic Shimano quality. Nothing goes wrong with these, but they do eventually wear out like all the other moving parts on your bike, but are much more durable than any brass cleat out there.

Best for commuters

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are incredibly easy to install, and are super dependable. Pair them with Chrome's Truk SPD shoe (link below) for a setup that provides minimal to no clicking (depending on walking surface), and a shoe that is comfortable enough to use all day, on and off the bike! No more carrying extra shoes and having to switch back and forth all day!

Nice SPD Cleats

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

This cleats are just great, they do not move when you are screwing them, neither when they are already on your shoes, no matter how many times you cleat/uncleat them from pedal they stay there.

Nice, very nice

    Great cleat, reasonable weight, and, most importantly for me, long lasting. One pair of shoes I have these on have the cleats exposed to walking and after several years of wear and tear (7-10 thousand km's a year) they are still holding strong.

        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,
