Speedplay Pedals -- what can we say, we love them. But for all the benefits that conjure this emotion, they have one slight price to pay. The cleats always work best when they're clean and well-lubed. Mud, dirt, and muck have no place in a Speedplay cleat/pedal system. But we're not selling them under the pretense that they're anything but one of the world's finest road pedal systems. And that, they are.
If you ride Speedplays and enjoy a good from-the-gun first lap breakaway in your local criteriums, then you'll want to lube them regularly to ease the transition into your pedals so you can clip in and hammer to the first corner. Speedplay SP-Lube is specially formulated exactly for this purpose. It's neither grease, Tri-Flow, nor powdered graphite. Grease and other wet petroleum based lubes attract way too much dirt, and graphite lacks the penetration qualities of a liquid to get into the recesses of the cleat/spring pocket.
Speedplay SP-Lube goes on wet and dries instantly leaving a layer of bonded lubrication on the working parts of the cleat. Most importantly, it does not attract dirt and grit. Your cleats will work better and last longer.
