Shimano front pivot floating cleats for the new Dura Ace 9000 pedals.
Shimano SM-SH12 front pivot floating cleats blue, for the new Dura Ace 9000 pedals.
Mr ALVINLess movements, means less ache. Highly recommended
Mr TroyStraight onto the Ultegra pedals, no issues at all and just the right amount of play. We'll see how long they last with a little bit of walking when required.
B. SeitzI can't say for sure that going from yellow cleats to blue cleats has improved my power transfer, but they do feel a bit more connected, while still giving just enough leeway to wiggle your heels a bit. Nice middle ground if you're sure you've got your cleat placement right, want a bit more direct, locked-in feel, but aren't ready to commit to the no-float option.
Mr HanIt is wider than other brand cleats, and makes me feel much more balanced, wide cleat ditribute the press under the shoes to a wider area; if you don't have a rigid carbon sole, it feels much powerful. If you have to walk on cleats, plastic material has not much endurance it can wear easily on the gravel roads, carrying a couple of shimano's cleats cover extends the cleats life.
Mr DixonPrefer these to the standard yellow as once you have the position correct its easier to unclip
TerryIn my opinion the perfect amount of float
Mr AppelbaumThe most reliable cleat replacement and I like the extra wear protection Shimano adds.
Gustavo RodriguesVery good. Perfect docking / undocking and adjustment, with reduced float. I recommend for a firmer adjustment of the feet, keeping a smaller movement.
SRCOnce you've got your cleat position dialed, these feel much more direct than the yellow cleats.
Mr ClearyShimano are excellent cleats, I never have any issues while riding, clip-in/out is always easy and they never come out by themselves, but I am not a power rider, but i do ride 200k per week. These say there is no float but I don't find them much different to the yellow really maybe a bit firmer in the pedal. Good to walk with as well, but only to the coffee shop.
Mr M SissonThese are the usual excellent Shimano quality product. For me the SH12's are the 'goldilocks' cleat compared to the red and yellow ones - just the right amount of float, not too much and not too little!
Mr TossanyI initially tried these cleats as an experiment, to see what the 1 degree of float felt like. I find that it still feels very secure, while still giving a little bit of leeway for your legs to move. Be sure to dial your fit in before putting on this cleat.
Mr HempsallSuperb. Really like the lack of lateral float. These are very much the "goldilocks" cleats, between the tighter red and the slacker yellow.
Mr SissonGreat cleats. Find the 1 degree float much better for my knees than the yellow ones (with more float).
Mr SissonNot much to say. They fit, reduce float to a minimum, and have helped reduce my knee problems. Seriously quick delivery from Merlin too.
Mr SargeantPerfect balance between the red's which are too rigid and the yellow's which gave me too much lateral play/float. Best price online including postage and received next day.
Mr DaviesQuality Shimano cleats with a bit less float than the yellow ones. Fast delivery by Merlin.
Mrs LeonardGreat knees will like these
