Description

When you bolt clipless pedal cleats onto the bottom of your road shoes they make an impression on them -- regardless of pedal brand. Speedplay makes these carbon sole wear protector shims to serve two purposes: (1) To minimize the deformation of your carbon sole's clear coat. (2) To help keep the cleat in place as you screw them down. Without these, the cleat will tend to migrate as you torque the screws. You'll be supplied with 2 shims per order.

Please Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, we are unable to ship Speedplay products outside the United States.

Essential

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you have carbon soled shoes these are essential. They are very durable and are good for probably 10 cleat changes, maybe more. I've used these on 3 pairs of Specialized S-Works and they've outlasted one set of shoes & just mounted them on some new Sidi's.

Save your Soles

These are a must have with carbon soled shoes and SpeedPlay pedals. Slip these between your cleats ans shoes and ride with comfort knowing that your beautiful carbon soles are protected

Never Go Without

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I never install Speedplay cleats without the protector shims anymore. I discovered these as a "pro secret" many years ago; using them with your standard cleats to prolong the life of the cleat and pedal.

They are a no-brainer if you are using Speedplay specific shoes so that you don't damage the sole of your shoe; but they are also a fantastic and worthy addition to the standard cleat setup.

$10 or $500

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You decide - spend $10 now or $500 on a new set of Sidis or Lakes in 6 months.

These provide a stainless layer to protect the carbon soles of your fancy uphill dancing slippers. They last forever, in fact I rarely buy additional pairs - only when I want to add a pair of shoes, not replace.

Highly recommended.

If you are using a 3 hole shoe, adding http://www.competitivecyclist.com/speedplay-fore-aft-extender-base-plate to the setup really makes a huge difference in extending cleat life as well.

a definite shoe hack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

one of those things you've lived without but when you use them you'll realize that for not much money you should have had them all along. I used them on Sidi, and Lake and worked great.

Are the mounting screws that come with the cleats in the box the same ones that are needed when using these?

Speedplay shields

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have Sidi Genius speedplay shoes. The shields have kept the shoes carbon sole from any wear from the continuos clipping in and out from the pedals as you come to stops. Also being thin, they add very little weight if any to the shoes at the end of the day.

Speedplay shield for bicycle shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It was suggested to me by Speedplay to install these Al. plates so that the soft Carbon sole on the bottom of the shoe does not wear out where the Speedplay cleat is inserted into the shoe. If the Al. plate is not used then the Carbon sole of the shoe will wear out and the pedal will have a poor fitting and could possibly cause harm by not releasing completely from the cleat.
