Cleat Grips For Look Keo Cleats by Cleatskins

29 Feb

I tried several brands of cycling cleats for my road shoes and I decided that Look Keo cleats were best suited to my needs. The original non-grip Look Keo cleats offered tremendous power transfer from your feet to the pedals, but they were downright dangerous to walk in—the first time I wore them I fell down just walking across my garage. Look Keo 2 cleats introduced a traction pad which made it easier to walk with, but these pads wear out rather quickly if you walk in them very much. Look sells a pair of covers for their cleats and while they do an excellent job of protecting the cleats, they material is so hard its make it difficult to walk in (and even more difficult to put on). The good news is that Cleatskins has recently introduced their new Cleat Grips For Look Keo Cleats and they not only protect your cleats but make it very easy to walk on pavement (or even gravel) while in your road shoes.

Cleat Grips For Look Keo Cleats

Cleat Grips For Look Keo Cleats are made of lightweight Skintek—a durable material that is softer than normal cleat covers and is very flexible. If you look on the left hand side of the above photograph you will notice the grooved pattern on the bottom of the covers—this provides great traction even on wet pavement. In addition to allowing you to walk in your road shoes, Cleat Grips also protects floors from marring (this will make the folks at the convenience store happy).

A pair of Cleat Grips will easily fit in one of your jersey pockets with room to spare. They are machine washable, but I’ve found them to be very easy to clean with just a wet cloth. The Cleatskins Website says that these covers are available in either black or orange, but at the moment it seems that they only have black in stock.

Cleat Grips retail for $18 a pair and are available from the Cleatskins Website. Cleatskins also has covers  available that are specifically designed for Shimano, Time and Speedplay cleats. This review was based upon a pair of Cleat Grips that was sent to me for review from Cleatskins.

    This review is absolutely spot on! The cleat covers that are actually sold by Look are not anywhere near as good as the Cleatskins brand for all of the reasons that this post states. I’ve also tried other brands of cleat covers for Look cleats and they simply don’t stay on the way the Cleatskins brand does. If you use Look Keo cleats, Cleatskins covers are the only way to go!

      Thank you very much! The Cleatskins are SO much easier to put on or take off!

    I tried the “ProBikeSkins” from Cleatskins today. These cleat covers are held in place with rubber bands and can be folded out of the way when riding.
    Easy to fit, easy to change from walking to riding mode and great to walk with.
    I was scepical, but for the price of a pair of cleats it was well worth getting them !
