Schuhplatten für das LOOK Delta System

Ein Cleat ist das Verbindungsstück zwischen einem Fahrradschuh und einem Klickpedal. Es besteht bei MTB-Pedalen meist aus Stahl beziehungsweise Messing, bei Rennradpedalen oft aus hochfestem Kunststoff. Ursprünglich war bei den Rennradpedalen nur der Begriff Schuhplatten üblich, aber inzwischen wird auch hier gelegentlich der Anglizismus verwendet.

Auf dem Markt existieren mehrere Klicksysteme, die sich meist durch die verwendete Form der Cleats unterscheiden:

  • Shimano (SPD)
  • TIME
  • Crank Brothers (Egg Beater)
  • LOOK (System Delta, Keo sowie Kéo Blade)
  • Speedplay

Die verwendeten Cleats dieser Klicksysteme sind untereinander meist nicht kompatibel.
