    I'm relatively new to the clipless way of life, but these cleats along with the Crank Bros Candy 1's give me a ton of confidence. Although I find them easy to get in and out of, they still have a bomber hold without making me feel too locked in.

    Easy in, easy out

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The first set of cleats, they lasted forever. In fact, should have changed them a little sooner. So a new set is welcome to hold the feet on a little better. The pedals are not adjustable, the release position is built into the cleats. When they are installed with say cleat "A" on the right it releases at 8 degrees. If cleat "A" is on the left, it releases later, at say 15 degrees.

    Cleat up!

    Cleats do not last forever. They are slowly worn away at and need to be replaced. I would suggest replacing your cleats at least twice a year.

    A must!

    These cleats are bomber, they are simply indestructible. I have not had any issues with mine and I have been riding with the same cleats for over a year now, bikepacking (A lot of hike a bike), Moab and thrashing trails on the Wasatch Front. I have Candy 2's while running the Five Ten Maltese Falcon LT and they complement each other well!

    A must!

    Adjustable Q-Factor For The Win

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My favorite thing about these cleats is the ability to adjust Q-factor, which isn't an option with the standard Crank Brothers cleats that came packaged with my Eggbeater pedals (see photo for comparison). Being able to get my feet just a little bit closer to the crankarms makes for happy knees and a closer feel to my road bike, which makes transitioning between road and cross a whole lot easier.

    As for durability, these are pretty bombproof. I've had this model on other shoes over the years and have yet to actually wear a pair out even with boatloads of cyclocross abuse.

    Excellent Choice

    These are the best cleats that you can buy and cant find them for a better price anywhere else, quality and long lasting

    Nothing better than fresh cleats

    Replace your cleats often. It will help keep you connected to the bike better, which leads to better and safer riding.

    Keep them fresh. Keep your feet in.

    Solid brass, solid cleat. Like the float and the simplicity of my Eggbeater pedals. Don't love replacing the cleats, but the system works and the new cleats keep my shoes on the pedals. Hate slipping out and the worst time when riding worn out cleats. Good price. Good product.

    better these than your pedals or shoes

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

    These are the same cleats that come with crank bros pedals. I love them, and when you walk around with shoes in the grocery and other places, its nice to know that the cleats are cheap to replace. Stick out just enough to lock into pedals easily but stay back when they're supposed to. Easy to adjust and don't rust out too bad (unless you ride lots of beaches):)

    I bought these cleats for a pair of new shoes. These ones had been a step up in the ones that I use with other shoes that I have. These ones perform wonderful mounting and dismounting from the pedals. Sturdy, easy in and out.

    Might as well

      Decided to grab these in addition to my purchase of the eggbeater 3s to one hopefully last longer, and so far they are wearing pretty well after a few 100 miles of cross and mountain riding.

      Great for cross

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use crankbrothers for my cross bike and always have a couple extra cleats laying around in my tool box. Grab an extra pair so you are not stuck with warn out cleats at the start of a big ride.


        Left neglected on the bottom of my sidi's for years now these little guys have had my back through some sketchy adventures. Figured it was time for a replacement and it's amazing what a difference it makes to have cleats that are not worn down beyond recognition. My egg beaters feel brand new again. Don't wait, replace your nasty old cleats!

        Several thousand miles later....

        This shows the cleats after a summer of training and racing NUE's. Still in pretty good condition, good enough to train on this spring. I replace my cleats once/twice a year to keep the fit snug and the action crisp. The cleats are made of a softer material than the pedal so that it wears and not your blinged out Egg Beaters. Replacing cleats is much better than pedals. If you keep your cleats installed for 10 deg til release and replace them periodically you will be happy and the action will dis-engage without effort.

        what can you say about a cleat?

          Crank brothers cleats come well packaged, with clear instructions and everything you might need including shims as an option.

          The crank brothers mechanism is different from SPD I'm not sure if I like it yet. It may not be a good choice for a novice rider. There is no adjusting release pressure. In my opinion a novice does better with a very easy release. Easy release does not mean accidental release as long as your technique is good.

          Crank brothers pedals such as the mallet are great blend of flat and clipless, but it may be better to just commit to one or the other.

          Make sure you have them set to 10 degree release rather than 16 degrees. This makes it much easier to get out of.
