Cleat Feat is suited to all situations and is being developed further to suit each situation individually.
Cage pedals are known as death traps for the simple fact that you cant get your feet out quick enough. So as you guys say, for leisure cyclists cleat feat are ideal.
For multi dicipline events where all kit is carried, losing the weight and bulk of an extra pair of shoes in your pac is very benificial and every second is crucial in transition and htis saves you changing shoes. In mtn biking the majority of research has shown that both of these factors weight out the benifits that a stiffer shoe gives.
Testing has proven it's performance above platform pedals. This product could also be used as a cross over when first trying cleats before splashing out on £100+ bike shoes.
Note: Cleat Feat is not designed for competitive road cycling where a stiff shoe is very benificial!
