Why do I have cleat movement?Updated 10 months ago

Be advised some pedal systems, including Look Keo, can produce a small amount of cleat rocking when used with Bont Cycling shoes. This is largely due to our anatomical shaping and 3.6mm stack height (sole thickness) which leads to a flatter sole.

In this instance, you have a couple of options to consider.

The first is to use Look cleat spacers designed specifically for this purpose. The second is to try another brand of pedal such as Shimano (recommended), Speedplay, Time or similar.

Given our Vaypor series shoes (Vaypor S, Helix, Vaypor+ and Zero+)  already have a very low stack height of just 3.6mm, the additional spacer will still keep you extremely close to the pedal axle.
