Thank you for choosing Positz Cleats for Shimano Pedals to enhance your cycling performance. This installation guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to properly install Positz Cleats on your cycling shoes for compatibility with Shimano Pedals. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Preparing for Installation
- Ensure you have a pair of Positz Cleats for Shimano Pedals, designed specifically for Shimano pedal systems.
- Familiarize yourself with the components of the cleats, including the front and rear sections, as well as the attachment hardware.
Step 2: Assessing Cleat Compatibility
- Before installation, make sure the Positz Cleats for Shimano Pedals are compatible with your Shimano pedal system.
- Check the cleat and pedal compatibility information provided by both Positz and Shimano.
- Ensure that you have the correct model and version of the cleats for your specific Shimano pedals.
Step 3: Aligning Cleats on Cycling Shoes
- Begin by positioning your cycling shoes on a flat surface, with the sole facing upward.
- Locate the predetermined cleat attachment points on the sole of each shoe. These are typically marked with indicators or symbols.
Step 4: Attaching Cleats to Cycling Shoes
- Start with the right shoe. Align the front section of the Positz Cleat with the front attachment point on the right shoe.
- Adjust the cleat position laterally and rotationally until you find a comfortable position that suits your riding style and biomechanics.
- Lateral adjustment refers to moving the cleat horizontally along the shoe sole.
- Rotational adjustment allows you to angle the cleat based on your preferred foot positioning.
- Once you’ve found the desired position, use the provided screws and a compatible screwdriver to attach the cleat securely to the shoe.
- Follow the recommended torque specifications provided by the cleat manufacturer.
Step 5: Repeating the Process for the Left Shoe
- Repeat Step 4 for the left shoe, aligning the cleat with the appropriate attachment points.
- Adjust the cleat position on the left shoe to match the alignment you established on the right shoe.
- Use the provided screws and a compatible screwdriver to attach the cleat securely to the left shoe.
Step 6: Verifying Cleat Alignment
- Once both cleats are attached, step into your cycling shoes and engage them with your Shimano pedals.
- Pay attention to the engagement and disengagement feel, making sure it is smooth and secure.
- Walk around and simulate pedalling motions to ensure comfort and proper cleat function.
- If necessary, make minor adjustments to the cleat position to optimize your pedalling efficiency and overall comfort.
