Serious or even semi-serious road cyclists know that road pedals and cleats have one serious problem – namely that they wear out. This is most notable of the Look Keo style cleats, as the plastic wears quickly when riders do anything other than ride. Just touching down at stop signs and lights can quickly wear out the cleats, which often should be replaced once noticeable wear is seen – otherwise the cleats can float incorrectly in the pedals or worse break. Either can make it hard to pedal properly, which can be annoying and even dangerous.
But Fibrax have introduced a novel system, pedal cleats that can be rotated to prolong the life. Dubbed the 2Face the cleats can be removed, turned and remounted, which adds to the life of the cleats and ensures a few more miles.
It may be a small saving but those small savings do add up!
