Yellow for every fellow, red for racing—that's the rule for SPD-SL Cleat Sets.
These are the replacement cleats for Shimano SPD-SL pedals, including the Dura Ace PD-7810 and the Ultegra PD-6620 models. You get two cleats and all installation hardware. The stock cleat that comes with the Dura Ace and Ultegra SL pedals are the Black/Yellow floating cleat with 6 degrees of float. You also have the option to choose Shimano's Black/Red cleat -- a fixed cleat with no float whatsoever.

Not much one can talk about on cleats. These work and entry/exit are easily performed. My only complaint are the cleats are rather easily worn down depending if you walk alot on them or are able to walk on your heels. Either way they work with the Shimano pedals and are easily found and bought. Never had one to break to date and it has been 10 years using this system. 4 stars because nothing special here.
SPD pedals are great, but the cleats do wear out in about 1,500 miles. Keep a pair of these on hand, when you put them on it will feel like you just got a fresh straight razor shave and haircut, thinks are just right and tight.
If you have a pair of cleats that are worn out, but your pedals are still good to go get this now! Even if you don't need a set of cleats right away it is always better to get them now, rather than wait for disaster to occur!
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.
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.
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!
I have the yellow version and I agree with Matt, they are pretty comfortable for the knees. Sometimes when I am standing and really cranking the "float" can be a little disconcerting. But I have grown accustomed to it after about 800 miles. When these wear out I will probably try some Speedplay pedals.
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)
