Shimano Blue Cleats

Postby Ginsterdrz » Mon Jan 21, 2013 14:12 pm

Anyone tried them on Ultegra carbon pedals?
Any advantages, do they feel different/better?

For the weight save to price they are something I would leave to the pros. 105 pedals weigh around 325g to 315g for Ultegra for almost 3 times the price. Money could be better spent elsewhere if you have that amount to burn

Worth a punt, if you don't like them just flog them on again.

Sorry misread post on my phone, crappy small screen.

Not sure what difference is meant to be on the blue cleats. Better clipping in and out is meant to be the main pro for them. I dont think the float is any different from the yellow ones. So apart from that not sure what else a cleat can really offer better.

I have the blue cleats. Main difference is that they have a lot less float than the yellow cleats. Personally I like them, but it really depends whether you like a lot of float or not. It also pivots at the front rather than the centre (apparently !). They work fine on Dura Ace and 105' so can't see there would be a problem with Ultegra.

Bottom line, it's all about the float.

Ahhhh...thanks Mccaria.

Was interested to know if the pivot point made any difference, obviously not!
