If you've upgraded your pedals to the Dura-Ace 9000 series, no doubt you're putting in the miles. When your cleats wear out, as they will, you'll need the Dura-Ace 9000 Cleats to keep you locked in. These are the 9000-series Blue cleats, which give you one degree of float, an option for Shimano that previously only offered six-degree or zero-degree float. This gives you the efficiency and power transfer of a fixed cleat with just a little room for comfort. It's something the pros have enjoyed for a few seasons now. The one degree of float originates from the center of the cleat, which also works better with your foot's natural movements while riding.
