Shimano SH10 Cleats Red
Up to 12 months interest free
Shimano SPD-SL road pedals and cleats are a popular choice among professional and amateur cyclists thanks to their stable platform, easy operation, and long-lasting performance. The wide, low-profile cleats distribute force evenly and allow for easy walkability without needing to carry special cleat covers for your mid-ride coffee stop
Your neutral foot position is also important to understand before selecting and installing the right SPD-SL Cleat for you. The neutral position of the foot is defined as its most natural or efficient angle while pedaling. For some athletes, this means that both feet point perfectly straight forward. For others, the toes naturally point slightly inward or outward. If you’ve had an injury on one side of the body, your neutral position may differ between your left and right feet.
Regardless of your foot angle, the goal is to position your cleats so that your neutral foot position falls in the middle of the float range. This allows for an even amount of float beyond your neutral foot position, which helps take stress off your knees and other critical joints. It may take several rides to dial the position perfectly, so take your time and make small cleat adjustments as-needed.
Red SPD-SL Cleats – 0 Degrees of Float
Red SPD-SL cleats have no float and are 100% fixed in position. This makes them great for sprinters, professional athletes, or people who value the most efficient power transfer possible and are not prone to knee pain. Note that red SPD-SL cleats require that you know your optimal cleat position precisely, and you are comfortable adjusting your cleats into that perfect position.

Most people will find the yellow cleat the best option as they either have stability inherently in their bike fit or they need the flexibility in the cleat in order not to damage their knees.
The red cleat is great for a locked in feel, but some people using these find they get knee problems as the cleat will not allow your knee to track naturally - if your cleat/bike fit isn't perfect for you, you might end up having problems. On the other hand if you do have a lot of foot instability, then the red cleat might be a great option for "holding" you, this could lead to greater comfort.
The blue cleat is somewhere in between these two.
A word of warning: If you encounter knee issues it's vital that you address it as soon as possible as this is not a thing that will go away with more training - be aware of what your body needs. A bike fit or a physio appointment might be a great investment for your health and possible increased power - a win win situation.
