These are the stock replacement cleat for all Time RXS series pedals. The one-piece Cafe cleat has three integrated non-slip stabilizers that grip the ground and provide excellent stability. They are not part of the engagement system, so they do not effect entry and exit when worn down.
The brass engagement cleat is tucked away underneath the body of the cleat itself to keep it fresh and out of harms way.
Please note: Not compatible with Iclic series, Impact series, Equipe series or older Time pedals systems
I give them a "5" for excellent value & quality. Ive had these for a couple years (two or three?). at any rate, the info regarding "rxs cleats are not compatible w/Impact pedals" is FALSE! they work perfectly w/them & in fact I am using them instead of the supplied cleats that came w/the impact pedals since the rxs cleats offer a bit of float & a bit wider "Q-Factor". I have the entry-level pedal which i paid approx. $70. they are well worth the money & have held up well over thousands of miles. The bearings are of good quality. Too bad TIME discontinued these pedals. the cleats are VERY durable. Theyre also secure. bottom-line: great (underated) pedal & cleats that last a LONG time.
These are pretty good cleats, but the statement in the description -- which says that entry and exit is not effected when the rubber part is worn down -- is simply false. Mine are worn down and now it is extremely difficult to engage the pedal. The problem is that the front plastic/rubber lip of the cleat is vital for providing leverage when stepping into the pedal. When that front lip wears off, you have no leverage and it takes a great deal of force to get the metal part of the cleat to engage the pedal. Once engaged, however, performance is not effected.
