for years i have been looking for titanium cleats. i finally found them! these are everything you would want in a cleat. strong, light, etc. they really are titanium. i anodized mine and yes they are. surprise they are also hollow, with internal stiffeners. so even lighter. noticeably less than half the weight of a standard cleat. i gave it 4 stars for the price. that's a lot of money for cleats. even for a weight weenie like me. you get a pair of carbon fiber shoes then bolt a steel or bronze cleat on them. i could easily feel the difference in the shoe.
