Shimano SH-UT70 and Click’R Pedal

Shimano UT70 Click'r commuter SPD shoes

We just restocked our selection of Shimano footwear. We’re fully stocked with tons of sizes of shoes for road, mountain, cyclocross, commuting, and touring – and pedals as well. We’ve also added a new model to our lineup, pictured above: Shimano’s UT70 commuter shoe with the new SPD Click’R system.

While the UT70 is compatible with any two-bolt cleat, it comes stock with a plastic plate that engages with an SPD pedal. This system is designed for city riders who need a shoe that’s easy to walk in, and easy to clip out of. The plastic cleat rests flush with the rest of the UT70’s sole, making it incredibly natural to walk in with more traction, less noise, and a more natural feeling than with a standard clipless cleat. This system comes with a new pedal option by Shimano, as well:

The new Click’R pedal is an SPD pedal with an external plastic body. This design allows for more shoe-to-pedal contact for extra stability, comfort, and control.  It also gives you more pedal to land on if you miss your cleat, especially when starting and stopping in traffic.  While this system is a great commuter option for the experienced cyclist, it’s also fully compatible with standard SPD cleats and would make a great setup for anyone looking for an easier transition into riding clipless.  We’re excited about this innovated take on the venerable SPD system.  Stop by an ask a salesperson to check them out.
