Women's Shimano SPD Multi-release Cleat Set SM-SH56


Multi-directional release replacement cleats for road and Mt. biking shoes, compatible with standard Shimano SPD pedals. Multi release cleats offer the minimum spring resistance available, ideal for those who are concerned about not being able to easily unclip from the pedals.

Because they are designed to release very easily, you may find that these cleats occasionally release unintentionally.

Not as good as the SH-55

March 23, 2013

These cleats do release easily enough but in comparison to the SH-55, which for some reason Shimano decided to discontinue, they are not nearly as nice. The SH-55 had some float in them that allowed for fine tuning your foot position on the pedal. With the SH-56, there is no float so no fine tuning. You have to keep messing with positioning them on the shoe until you get it right and that can take many tries. And then, if you still want to do any slight adjustments, you can't.

Great performance

January 10, 2013

What a good feeling to replace your cleats! I didn't realize how worn my old cleats had gotten until I put on new ones. In and out is so crisp and easy now. If it's been a couple years, treat yourself to new cleats. You may be surprised like I was at the improvement.
