Shimano's SPD-SL Cleat Set includes two cleats and all the installation hardware you'll need. The cleat set is compatible with all Shimano SPD-SL pedals, including the Dura-Ace PD-7810 and the Ultegra PD-6620 models. The SM-SH11s are the Black/Yellow floating cleats with 6 degrees of float--this is the stock cleat that comes with the Dura-Ace and Ultegra SL pedals. Or if you prefer a fixed cleat with no float, there is the option of Shimano's Black/Red cleat, the SM-SH10.

Word of warning: When starting out PRACTICE using the cleats in a parking lot until the turn-out release becomes a reflex.
I have used sturrup straps since the 60s and now see a definite safety advantage using cleats.
I ride a Bacchetta Giro 26 with an average ride between 14 and 20 miles. I ride roads and metro traffic.
On a "high rider" recumbent I get push and pull action on the pedals. This is a definate plus for fast acceleration.
Purchase cleat covers to extend the life of the cleats. Plan on purchasing a set at least once a season; more often if you do not use covers. These cleats are hard plastic and will need to be replaced as the become more difficult to release.
I keep a second set on the shelf.
Thank you for a great product!
I like the secure interface of road cleats such as this and can easily perceive that they are lighter in weight. The road shoes that I use are lighter and stiffer as well. That being said I will probably take the road pedals off the recumbent and replace them with SPD mountain bike and put them where they belong, on my road bike.
5/2/15 update. This first pair was great. Recently the blue plastic "tabs" that make contact with the ground when walking came off. I tried superglue but that did not hold them. I don't walk much peri rides, so this caught me off guard (never had this happen with previous cleats, ride roughly 4000 miles a year). I bought a new pair and will see if they hold up as expected or once again fall apart.
If you ride where there are a lot of traffic lights, and you ride 1000 miles or more a year, you will go through 2 sets of these.
Clicking in and out a lot and walking around without cleat covers will do these in quickly.
When you hear a strange squeaking sound and it's not your bike, it's these cleats telling you to replace them.
I wish Shimano would sell longer screws. I have a shim to even out a shorter leg, and the screws that come with these are too short. Local Bike Store was able to provide them.
And now I've said way too much about cleats.
Cannot recommend these cleats highly enough with a proper fit! Really locks you in tight for throwing the hammer down in sprints, but releases easily just as other SPD-SL cleats. The perfect balance between Yellow (high-float) and Red (no float) cleats.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that I much preferred these blue ones, with the no-float aspect, as they feel more secure and like it delivers more power to the pedal.
