Okay, so we might be coming on a bit strong. But if you’ve read this far then you probably want to know why Titanium cleat bolts are popular. While it’s certainly true that they look fantastic, there are good practical reasons why it makes sense to fit your cycling shoes with Titanium cleat bolts.
Unlike steel cleat bolts, Titanium bolts don’t corrode when they come into the road filth that it’s impossible to avoid. This means they should never lose shape, fit or strength. In fact if you made the modest investment in Titanium SPD-SL cleat bolts you’ll probably never have to buy another set of cleat bolts as long as you live. Unless you lose your cycling shoes. Buying these Titanium bolts won’t help casually misplaced footwear one little bit.
A little bit of investment advice
While Titanium cleat bolts won’t increase in value, they will last a really long time. They undeniably cost more than steel cleat bolts, but they will outperform steel in every way, at least in every way we can think of. So you can think of buying these polished Titanium SPD-SL cleat bolts as a treat if you wish, but in reality, they are a sound and sensible investment.
