The perfect replacement

I needed to set up an old pair of bike shoes for use on a spin bike. These cleats are just what I needed.

SPD Cleats

I'm in agreement with Mary who also reviewed these cleats. the silver ones have way too much float so it takes an extra extended effort to get out you're moving around and them without actually releasing. I much prefer the black cleats that usually are what comes with pedals when you buy them new. Generally speaking if you've been using the black cleat and you switch to these you'll make a motion to release and you'll move but you won't come out so if you're looking for a certain amount of precision don't buy these.

Easy to use cleats for commuting

I like to ride clipped in, but since the majority of my riding is commuting in a city with plenty of stoplights, I appreciate the ease of clipping in and out with the multiple release design. I typically clip out in a manner that would work with normal cleats, but the multiple release has saved me from taking a dive in a couple emergency stop situations.

Shimano SM-SH56 SPD Replacement Cleats are the best for beginners.

Shimano SM-SH56 SPD Replacement Cleats are the best for beginners. You can adjust them to disengage at different tensions. Help in keeping a better cadence while riding. Easy to install replacement cleats. I would highly recommend.

They work well, and you can release in both directions, left and right.

I am going to post my insights on these clipless shoes and my peddles from a newbies perspective. Yeah, I don't get the clipless either, as I clip into the peddles... I ride about 20 miles 2-3 times a week, using a 29er mountain bike with slicks. I was scared to death of clipless, because I thought I would not be able to get out of them. I ordered the Shimano SM-SH56 SPD cleats to go with Shimano PD-M530 SPD Clipless Trail Pedals and Giro Rumble VR MTB Shoes. First off on the shoes, there is a channel that allows you to adjust the cleat position fore and aft, which helped me find the best fit. The Shoes are a bit heavy, but very solid and fit my feet well. The one thing I want to pass on, is the SM SH56 Cleats are multi release, so you can release your foot by twisting left or right. Plus you ARE NOT locked in to the peddles. You actually have some play where I can move my heal left or right by 12 inch to 34 of an inch. Which is really cool, as sometimes I have a little pain in my knee and by moving my right heel laterally I can take the pressure off. It really did not take me long to get used to clipping in and clipping out of the clipless cleats. You can adjust the tension on the peddles for the release pressure, and I have mine set light, but they don't come out on the upstroke. If you are considering trying clipless, go with the SM SH56 cleat, and these shoes, they were a good purchase for me. I was able to increase my pace on my circuit by 12 to 34 of a mile average. I went from 14.6 mph avg. to 15.1 and have gone faster but that was on a day when I had a good south wind. Overall I am very happy with this set up and would encourage anyone looking at trying out clipless to clip into their peddles to try this combo.

one failed - I almost broke my leg

I must have gotten a defective one because my shoe came off the pedal 5 times (!!) in 30 miles, and if I hadn't been alert and quickly raised my foot, and let it fall and drag on the pavement, I could have broken my foot, my leg, or worse. It could have been a disaster.

Ideal for mountain or road riding

These cleats are used in place of the standard SPD cleats, and allow you to twist your foot out of the pedal in any direction, including a hard yank straight up. This means, when your bike is going down you can literally leap out of the pedals and land on your feet rather than being pulled over with the bike. For many mountain bikers it is a good compromise between clip-in pedals and flat pedals, and is also great for road or cyclocross. These have several times saved me from more serious injuries.

Very easy release

I have SPD pedals on all of my bikes, including the road bikes. I only use mountain bike shoes because unlike road shoes you can walk in them. When I bought a new pair of shoes I needed new cleats. I saw these on sale and gave them a try. They are way easier to release than the standard SPD cleats while still secure when clipped in. So much so that I am now thinking about putting them on all my shoes.

Shimano SPD Cleats just work and forever

Shimano Cleats will last you forever, but if you walk on them the bolts will eventually wear down and if you buy new shoes it is unlikely you will be able to transfer them. Otherwise you could use the same cleats for life. Always a good deal through BikeTiresDirect.

The best SPD cleats!

These are by far my favorite cleats for any bike that I have SPD pedals on. The multiple angle release makes them much easier to unclip from the pedals then the standard cleats. This makes these much safer to use that I highly recommend them for beginners that are converting to clipless pedals. I have never had a failure to release in any situation which required my to do it quickly. This includes mountain bike riding where getting out of the pedals in a hurry is really important.

Sturdy and reliable.

For me 'multiple release' has proven the best option. No problem staying clipped in when I want to, but also no problem unclipping when I need to )

Not a fan.

In the interest of being helpful, I'll provide candid feedback on these cleats.

To be honest, didn't like these at all, because was used to the black ones that were more secure. I was popping out of them right and left, even after tightening them. I ended up taking them off and buying a pair of the black ones to replace them.

Hope that's helpful. Sorry it's not more positive feedback.

Great for Casual Riding and More

These have multiple points for disengagement, so they're really easy to uncleat in an emergency situation. They'll sometimes pop out in the upstroke when you're really cranking it, but I like them for casual and urban riding when you have to clip in and out a lot. Also highly recommend for those new to cleats, both off or on on-road, and for commuters. I've never had any de-cleating accidents with hem, knock on wood.
