Fibrax have unveiled a ‘revolutionary’ two-sided cleat design that can be rotated to prolong life.
The firm, who specialize in brake pads and cables, call the cleats 2Face. They are compatible with Look Keo pedals and because they can be rotated, are said to last twice as long as traditional designs. All you do is unscrew the mounting bolts, rotate the connecting plate and reassemble.
“It is one of the constant complaints of cyclists that they have to replace cleats on a regular basis,” said designer Dave Savage. “I wanted to come up with a way to extend their life without compromising on safety or comfort. The result was 2Face cleats.”
They will be available from October 2012 and cost £17.99. The firm will be displaying the cleats before then at next month’s Cycle Show at the Birmingham NEC.
The show, which takes place from 27-30 September, is in its second year in at the NEC and features exhibitors from the likes of Specialized, Mavic, Pinarello and Trek.
Entry to the show normally costs £16 on the door or £13 advance, but BikeRadar readers can get admission for the exclusive price of £11 using the code BRD at the checkout.
