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.

I just installed the shimano pd-rs500 spd-sl, with the shimano yellow cleats (Came as a package) Question: Does the pedal spring tension adjustment affect the Float? (Shoe to pedal lateral play)

Thank you for your questions "Newto Roadbike"!

The float on each Shimano road cleat is specific to the color, though the pedal tension (release tension) is adjustable. if it is hard to clip in and out, I would recommend taking a 2.5mm hex and turning the small bolt on the top of the pedal counterclockwise. This will lower the spring tension.

As for the float on the cleats, the yellow cleat will have the most float coming in at 3 degrees of float - blue with 1 degree of float - the Red will 0 degrees of float.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email me directly at krakowski@competitivecyclist.com.


Tried and True

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second set. I chewed up my last set as a newbie by dragging my feet while learning. I tried a cheaper cleat and immediately felt the difference. This is the perfect cleat, and I'm not changing for the foreseeable future.

Great Cleats!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I switched from Look to Shimano last year, best decision I made, easier to walk in and clip in.

biggest offset, always solid

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using the Shimano SH11 Yellow for a long time. If you get your cleat fit near perfect, you can go with the reds. Blue if you're solid since they don't have any play at all. The SH11 Yellow have the most play for those moving feet. There are some generic brands just as good and half the price these days. These usually last a few months before they need changing. You can get a cover for them if you really want to protect them and they will last longer.

I always use these

    I only use these cleats. No need to buy anything else. I get new cleats every season and these are my go to. They work great.

    Good replacement cleats

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Wouldn’t use anything else. The whole system is pretty comfortable getting into, riding, getting out of. We replace our cleats every seasons or two.

    Good replacement cleats.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    What can I say. These are just good replacement cleats. I prefer the ones with float because it saves my knees. I would recommend.

    Glad I got them

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've had Shimano road pedals for a while and love them, so when I got new road shoes, I decided to put on new cleats. Guess I didn't realize how worn my other cleats were -- these work great and have that nice snappy new-cleat feel. Definitely recommend.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    ...makes the best components bar none. Have been using their cleats for over 15 years. Very durable and reliable. Fit's all three hole road shoes. Highly recommend!

    The reason I use shimano pedals

      These cleats last a really really really long time. The pedals they attach to tend to do the same. Pretty walkable for a road cleat.

      Unanswered Question

      Will the yellow float cleats work with PD R9100 pedals. I just ordered some to replace my old 2001 dura ace and am not sure if I will need to change my cleats or not. I would rather keep the float for knee problems.

      Quality Cleats

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Shimano cleats that get the job done and last quite a long time. If you're not sure which color to pick up, most people go with the yellow cleats (6 degree float), unless you know you're looking for the Red (fixed float).

      Just works

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Be sure to scuff up the bottoms before riding where you need to stop quickly or often (city riding) as the retention is too tight until you break them in a little.

      Durable and dependable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The DA cleats will last for ages. I like to go with the yellow version with 6dgrees of float, which are easy on the knees.

      Great cleats

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These cleats are easy and inexpensive to replace. Light weight, but a little bulky. Not designed for walking, duh. But, they will get you from your bike to the car/garage. I have never had one slip out.

      Backup Cleats!

        I just bought these cleats to have a backup to my current one. These are same as the one that came with my pedals. Not any complaint with these cleats!
