Use these shims to if you have shoes with carbon soles to protect the carbon from abrasion. Also makes it easier to clean Speedplay cleats and keeping Speedplay cleats clean helps them perform more reliably. This Carbon Sole Protector Shim Kit will work with the newer V.2 cleats and is backward compatible to older cleats too.
Includes eight new V.2 Cleat fastening screws that are visually distinct from pre-V.2 cleat fastening screws. The V.2 Cleat fastening screws are not continuously threaded up to the head of the screw. Instead, the threads of the screw stop mid-way up the screw shaft and then have a small, unthreaded section of the shaft continuing to the screw head.
