When you bolt clipless pedal cleats onto the bottom of your road shoes they make an impression on them regardless of pedal brand. Speedplay makes these carbon sole wear protector shims to serve two purposes: 1 To minimize the deformation of your carbon sole's clear coat. 2 To help keep the cleat in place as you screw them down. Without these, the cleat will tend to migrate as you torque the screws. You'll be supplied with 2 shims per order. Please Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, we are unable to ship Speedplay products outside the United States.
