        Clipping Great!

        My first try of SPD SL pedals and what can I say, I think they're great, bit of practise clipping in and out whilst holding on to a wall but, on the first ride out they were great not too difficult to find the pedal again when starting off so a big thumbs up from me

        Excellent quality

        Good looking quality made item. Easy mechanism. Even tho I'm used to clip in shoes they do take a bit practice clipping in whilst on the move.

        SPDs

        Good quality SPD pedals. Much lighter than my old Look Keo's. Only negative is I don't really like the floating cleats that come with the set, personally prefer the fixed position ones.

        Clipless Road Pedals Guide

         

        Clipless Road Pedals Guide

        Considered essential for road riding and events. Offering better support for improved efficiency, clipless road pedals feature a larger SPD-SL style cleat that is attached to your shoe.

        Three bolt cleats have a much larger surface area than two-bolt MTB clipless pedals, which means there is better power transfer for performance and speed on the road. Power is transferred on the up-stroke as well as the down-stroke.

        By aligning the cleat correctly your foot will be in the right place on the pedal. This optimises power from the leg thus maximising output from each pedal stroke. Injury can be prevented by locating the foot straight and avoiding any twisting or poor foot placement.

        • Increased efficiency
        • More comfort
        • Prevents injury
        • Specific shoes are essential
        • Shoes cannot be walked in
        • Mud/soil badly affects cleats and pedals

        Cleats and Float

        Cleats come with pedals though there are options and preferences involved. A cleat will have a certain amount of float. This is the amount of rotation the foot has before becoming unclipped. Novice or newcomers to clipless riding will prefer more float.

        Shimano make this easy by having colour coding

        Yellow cleats give 6° of float

        Yellow

        Yellow cleats give 6° of float. Best for novice clipless riders, you foot is free to twist a little before unclipping.

        Blue cleats allow 2° of float

        Blue

        Blue cleats allow 2° of float. For intermediate riders who are comfortable with being clipped in, a greater knowledge of cleat placement needs less float.

        Red cleats are fixed and give no float

        Red

        Red cleats are fixed and give no float. For racers and those who want the most power transfer.


        Three-bolt cleat/pedal compatibility table

        There are several brands of three-bolt road shoes and each will the right type of cleat fitted to your shoe. However, they all fit to three-bolt road shoes. See the table below for full pedal compatibility.
