Four Times the Lifespan at Half the Weight: Titanium for the Win
Silca's new 3D-printed Titanium Cleats offer 300-400% the life expectancy of traditional materials, those being steel and brass, while cutting the weight in half. For those counting grams on a granular level, factor the 25-30g weight reduction plus the long-term durability season after season and they practically pay for themselves.
We often hear that marginal gains accumulate to significant savings. Silca has run the numbers to the effect that a 25 gm reduction x 100 rpm = 180 kg of mass not lifted per hour of riding for a savings of 90 kg per leg. Over time this adds up, particularly when considering cyclocross racing where running and off-bike hill-climbing are critical.
Combining 3D printing technology with 6Al/4V Titanium that is 1/3 lighter than steel, Silca has produced a mountain cleat with internal gyroid lattice structure which maintains stiffness and strength while reducing weight to create a cleat set that is HALF the weight of standard cleats.
The titanium hardware included utilizes a T25 Torx head, the interface of which is much more durable and resistant to rounding than the 4mm hex included with stock cleats.
