This bike cleat clips into, and out of the pedal smoothly. The standard pedal abrades (becomes pitted and chipped more easily). The Delta Bi-Material Cleat retains it's integrity. I highly recommend it.
These Look Bi-Mat Cleats are an improvement over the originals. They do not creak and have smoother action and float on the old Look PP166 pedals. The casting looks identical to the original. I had to reuse my bolts since the ones supplied were too short for the old Diadora Milano shoes.
THESE OLD SCHOOL CLEATS DO THE JOB NICELY. THEY ARE DURABLE LONG LASTING AND EASILY CLIPPED IN AND OUT . I HAVENT NOTICED A BIG DIFFERENCE WITH THE TEFLON .
LARGE PLATFORM ,PRICED WELL . I HAVE USED THEM SINCE THE 90S . CYCLE ON
I like the bi-material cleats to protect the pedal from wear and reduce squeaking. Prior package I bought also had a template sticker to place on the sole around the old cleat to make placement easier, but these did not have it, so I made miy own with masking tape.
I have a pair of rare LOOK touring shoes for which the cleats finally wore out. I have at least 20,000 miles on the shoes. The cleats that came with the shoe are almost, but not exactly, like these standard replacement cleats - these cleats are slightly taller than the cleats that came with these touring shoes.
Nevertheless, they fit just fine. The red cleats have more play than the black cleats, however these touring shoes do not allow any angular adjustment so the red cleats are mandatory. If I wanted an exact replacement I would have milled off some of the plastic on the back of the cleat, but it is fine as-is.
Be careful of the quantity there are two cleats per package - the website doesn't make it clear, so I ordered quantity (2) and ended up with (4) cleats.
If you have a rigid racing shoe, these cleats will work, or, you can purchase the black cleats that have no angular play. The black cleats must be very carefully mounted or you will damage you knees - but you can machine your own play into the black cleats by grinding with a Dremel tool. The black cleats are best for racing shoes, the red cleats are best for a touring shoe.
I HAVE HAD MY LOOK PEDALS ABOUT 10 YEARS,THEY ARE A GREAT PRODUCT,THATS WHY THE CLEATS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. . IM EIGHTYS MAN AND IM NOT JOINING THE REST OF THE LEMMINGS.
Riding a bike and pedals from 1987, when cleats were a new idea. The pedals are still good, but the cleats (and shoes) go the way of all flesh. Luckily you can still get the cleats.
