These are fine, I just prefer the single point release version

I have always used the single point of release version and decided, to give these a try, I am going back to the single release version.

For me 'multiple release' has proven the best option. No problem staying clipped in when I want to, but also no problem unclipping when I need to )

Great for Casual Riding and More

These have multiple points for disengagement, so they're really easy to uncleat in an emergency situation. They'll sometimes pop out in the upstroke when you're really cranking it, but I like them for casual and urban riding when you have to clip in and out a lot. Also highly recommend for those new to cleats, both off or on on-road, and for commuters. I've never had any de-cleating accidents with hem, knock on wood.

In the interest of being helpful, I'll provide candid feedback on these cleats.

To be honest, didn't like these at all, because was used to the black ones that were more secure. I was popping out of them right and left, even after tightening them. I ended up taking them off and buying a pair of the black ones to replace them.

Hope that's helpful. Sorry it's not more positive feedback.

McKinney,

I am going to post my insights on these clipless shoes and my peddles from a newbies perspective. Yeah, I don't get the clipless either, as I clip into the peddles... I ride about 20 miles 2-3 times a week, using a 29er mountain bike with slicks. I was scared to death of clipless, because I thought I would not be able to get out of them. I ordered the Shimano SM-SH56 SPD cleats to go with Shimano PD-M530 SPD Clipless Trail Pedals and Giro Rumble VR MTB Shoes. First off on the shoes, there is a channel that allows you to adjust the cleat position fore and aft, which helped me find the best fit. The Shoes are a bit heavy, but very solid and fit my feet well. The one thing I want to pass on, is the SM SH56 Cleats are multi release, so you can release your foot by twisting left or right. Plus you ARE NOT locked in to the peddles. You actually have some play where I can move my heal left or right by 12 inch to 34 of an inch. Which is really cool, as sometimes I have a little pain in my knee and by moving my right heel laterally I can take the pressure off. It really did not take me long to get used to clipping in and clipping out of the clipless cleats. You can adjust the tension on the peddles for the release pressure, and I have mine set light, but they don't come out on the upstroke. If you are considering trying clipless, go with the SM SH56 cleat, and these shoes, they were a good purchase for me. I was able to increase my pace on my circuit by 12 to 34 of a mile average. I went from 14.6 mph avg. to 15.1 and have gone faster but that was on a day when I had a good south wind. Overall I am very happy with this set up and would encourage anyone looking at trying out clipless to clip into their peddles to try this combo.

These cleats are used in place of the standard SPD cleats, and allow you to twist your foot out of the pedal in any direction, including a hard yank straight up. This means, when your bike is going down you can literally leap out of the pedals and land on your feet rather than being pulled over with the bike. For many mountain bikers it is a good compromise between clip-in pedals and flat pedals, and is also great for road or cyclocross. These have several times saved me from more serious injuries.

rating
by DonWA

I have SPD pedals on all of my bikes, including the road bikes. I only use mountain bike shoes because unlike road shoes you can walk in them. When I bought a new pair of shoes I needed new cleats. I saw these on sale and gave them a try. They are way easier to release than the standard SPD cleats while still secure when clipped in. So much so that I am now thinking about putting them on all my shoes.

The best SPD cleats!

These are by far my favorite cleats for any bike that I have SPD pedals on. The multiple angle release makes them much easier to unclip from the pedals then the standard cleats. This makes these much safer to use that I highly recommend them for beginners that are converting to clipless pedals. I have never had a failure to release in any situation which required my to do it quickly. This includes mountain bike riding where getting out of the pedals in a hurry is really important.
