Silca Releases $85, 3D-Printed, Titanium Cleats

Nov 17, 2021
by James Smurthwaite  

Silca has announced a new range of titanium, 3D printed cleats for cyclists who are inconvenienced by all their disposable income.

It might be fairly easy to mock this idea on the cost alone but Silca believes its cleats should be more durable than the traditional steel or brass versions as well as shaving some grams. These cleats are made specifically from 6/4 titanium that is slightly less hard than the steel generally used pedals and, Silca claims, 2.25 times stronger and 3 times harder than standard cleats. Silca believes this will allow you to get 300-400% wear life compared to brass cleats, however we're not sure about what this means (if anything) for pedal wear as a trade off.

These cleats have been manufactured to fit most mountain bike clipless systems but Silca believes they will be of most benefit to cyclocross riders who spend a lot of time running off the bike. These aren't the first cleats we've seen that use titanium, and earlier this year Titanium announced a full set of cleats and pedals from the metal.


The cleats will be available to fit Shimano SPD (24g, 30g lighter than stock), Crank Brothers (22g, 24g lighter than stock) and Time (22g, 26g lighter than stock) systems. The cleats are available now with a two year limited warranty for $85. More info, here.

 If they truly last as long as they say then for time cleats it's about a 1 to 1 cost to benefit ratio. BUT... you kinda do need the brass to wear in to get the "right" release out of time cleats/pedals IMO. So other then weight of 20gr it is a somewhat questionable buy?

Maybe they can get some used time cleats, scan then and update their CAD model so that you get "perfectly worn in cleats" that stay that way for the life of the cleat?? THAT would be worth the cost!! Smile

 That's totally not true. I have to replace my Shimano cleats every year, sometimes twice.
  • 13 1
 @alexsin: why ? Genuinely curious. I replace SPD cleats when my shoes are dead and the bolts are too seized up to get them off. Never noticed a difference in performance from start to the end and I ride 2/3 times per week so they see some use over the seasons.

 @Balgaroth:
Commuting every day in the week and they can wear quickly (lots of traffic lights.) The problem then is they start to dislike releasing which is a bit dodgy...
Although now I trackstand all the time and the wear is very different. Take a lot longer to wear, but I now seem to have too much float in the attachment. Time to replace them.

 @Highlander406: Totally agree! Especially 3D printed ti which is far softer.

Claiming 3x harder than standard cleats sounds bogus to me! From what I see the DMLS 3D printed Gr 5 ti (6/4) has a hardness of 40 HRB (which is quite soft). Not sure what type of steel is used for standard cleats, but mild steel has a hardness of ~71 HRB. I'd bet that standard cleats are made of harder steel than mild as well! In fact, I would hazard a guess that Shimano designs their cleats just slightly softer than their pedals to ensure a long pedal life.

So I call BS... looking forward to Silca's reply to defend their claims.

 @mountainsofsussex: I'm betting they are investment cast steel based on the surface finish and detail. I am a bit surprised that nobody has made sintered SPD cleats. Sintered steel parts are a lot more brittle than investment castings and are somewhat porous.

 $85 really isn't that bad for 3D printed stuff. If you wanted to get something this size printed from a print shop in ti it would cost you more. Mind you I'll never own these, but I wonder how they list them for so cheap.
  • 11 1
 I mean, if it really does last 4 times as long and if it doesn't wear down pedals, and if you're the type that is in and out of your pedals enough to go through cleats regularly, then really it's just the same cost as regular cleats over the equivalent lifetimes all while saving a bit of weight and hassle of cleat replacement.

That being said, those are all big IFs.

Edit: I might be off on my 4 times longer vs. 4 times the price. I was thinking CAD, instead of USD.

 @hamncheez: Congratulations on your success. The generational wealth gap doesn't say you can't get anywhere, it says that it's a lot easier to get somewhere when you have all that money behind you.

For example: A woman who said she was the aunt of a couple who just bought a $750,000 home near me described the couple as "A young couple just starting out!" as she was pushing their toddler past my house in a stroller. Based on what you've just said, that's not relatable to you just as it's not relatable to me. Those folks have an instant leg up on life since they can afford to be "just starting out" in a 3/4 million dollar home. Now, maybe they work really really hard in addition to being privileged, or maybe they just have it easy...I don't know as I've never met them in the 3 years they've been there. I do know that they've completely renovated the house after moving in, so it's not like they're tapped out either.

 Are titanium cleats a new religion? Silica "believes" a lot of things about these cleats. Is think a company making and selling a product would have tested their claims rather than relying on faith.

 Less hard-but more durable??

A) I call BS. These cleats might not wear at the alarming speed of brass cleats, but won’t last like steel SPDs do.

B) At this price?? Really???

If you’re considering buying these, just send me the cash. I’ll ride hard in cool places, jump off some stuff, and stick to sensible parts that hold up to a lot of miles of hard use.

As a bonus, you can still tell your other gaper friends with too much money you have the ti cleats. They won’t be bothered to look at the bottom of your shoes to check.

 They need to justify having a titanium 3D printer somehow, even making this absurd things.

However, there are far better uses for the titanium 3D printer IMO. Why not make brake and dropper post levers, seatpost collars, suspension yokes, top caps etc, something visible that shouts "I have money to burn" instead of these things that nobody will notice.

 This seems like a complete misuse of 3D printing technology, they're just using it so people say, "3D printing, cool!" You use 3D printing for protoyping or to save on tooling costs - which obviously weren't passed down to the customer in this case...

The other application would be to make something that would be difficult to machine otherwise, but it's pretty obvious from the better products on the market this isn't a limitation. Oh, and they're also cheaper and last longer.

 I would be more interested , IF they allowed for some variation in shape to provide something actually different.

 So they're harder/"better" than brass cleats, which seem to be only an option on Crank Brothers pedals. But they're softer than steel, so what is the bonus their beyond a tiny weight savings? "Stronger than steel" is mostly a moot point because not many folks (no one?) is breaking cleats on the reg. But less hard is an obvious deficit, because it's going to wear faster, so you'll just be spending that eighty-f*cking-five dollars more often.
  • 1 0
 3D printing is cool, but I'd rather have CNC machining at this price. Also, the problem with titanium is the hardness. When it fails, it will fail with the piece breaking off rather than bending. On top of that, the weight savings are so hilariously insignificant that they shouldn't even be mentioned.

 Pinkbike is getting salty with their titles. Kinda takes the wind out of the sails of the comment section...

 Hear me out, 85 dollars is around 3 times the price of Crankbrothers cleats which are brass and last me ~a month these would easily last 10 times as long as that, definitely a worthwhile upgrade for Crankbrothers riders (Especially me since i was planning on getting new pedals but will be getting these now instead)

 The steel cleat that we use for the last 30 years never been a great product. They are heavy, they rust and they are very hard to remove once they are freeze into the rust.

This is a great innovation and like all innovations, everybody is sceptic at the initial release but after 2-3 years, it becomes a nice to have or a must have.

Remember : Disc brake, dropper, rear suspension, gps, tubeless, carbon frame.... we were all sceptic first and then we agree they were better. Ok there is probably one guy who still prefer is old 26er hardtail frame... but this is not what we see in the trail everyday.

Sign me in for these TI cleats.
  • 3 1
 Yes this is "innovation" on par with disc brakes and shocks. How did someone ever think of making a generic shape of metal out of - wait for it... a different type of metal. The fact that it's "printed" (complete misrepresentation of what most think of printing) is pretty irrelevant. Your issues with cleats could easily be solved with: (a) use some stainless bolts to attach them (corrosion) and (b) have a BM before riding (weight).

I actually have always hated how while my XT pedals last forever, the cleats wear down and reduce performance significantly after a season or two. That said... wearing down the cleats does sound better than wearing down the pedals themselves so I'll go ahead and wait to see how this goes for others... But to those saying there's no need, I actually do think this is addressing a problem that exists.

 Anyone who has cut a titanium handlebar with a steel hacksaw knows that a titanium cleat couldn't last as long as the steel parts in your pedals. Perhaps it could be more lubricous than a steel cleat and have a smoother release? But it definitely couldn't be more durable. Unless somehow the cleats were printed from 6/4 ti, which I don't believe is possible. Maybe I'm wrong? I'd love to find out!
