You know what they say—you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs…or in this case, clipping into your Peloton shoes and getting a nasty pedal cramp in the process. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here’s a quick and dirty guide on how to get those shoes clipped in so you can get your workout on.

Peloton Shoes

The great thing about Peloton shoes is that they’re designed to work with all Peloton bikes, no matter what model you have. That means that whether you’re pedaling away on the original Peloton Bike, the new Peloton Bike+, or even the Peloton Tread, you can use the same shoes. All you need is the right pedal adapter for your specific bike. 

Most Peloton bike pedals come with both Look Delta and SPD cleats, which means that you can use both types of shoes with your bike. If you’re not sure which kind of cleat your shoes have, just take a look at the bottom of your shoe—it should be clearly marked. Once you know what type of cleat your shoes have, follow these steps to get clipped in:

For SPD Cleats: 

SPD cleats are a type of clipless pedal system that uses a two-bolt system to attach the cleat to the shoe. SPD cleats are common on mountain bikes and other cycling shoes, and they provide a secure connection that can be difficult to pull out of. If you’re using SPD cleats with your Peloton bike, follow these steps to get clipped in:

  1. Position your bike so that the chain is on the smallest cog in the front and the largest cog in the back. This will give you extra clearance when clipping in. 
  2. Swing your leg over the bike and put your foot on top of the pedal so that the metal SPD cleat is lined up with the center of the pedal. 
  3. Push down on the pedal until you hear/feel a click, indicating that the cleat is locked into place. Make sure that your shoe is secure before starting to ride! 
  4. To unclip, simply twist your heel out to release the lock. 

For Look Delta Cleats: 

Look Delta cleats are a type of clipless pedal system that uses a three-bolt system to attach the cleat to the shoe. They’re common on road bikes and other cycling shoes, and they provide a secure connection that is easy to pull out of. If you’re using Look Delta cleats with your Peloton bike, follow these steps to get clipped in:

  1. Position your bike so that the chain is on the smallest cog in front and largest cog in back (just like with SPD cleats). This will give you some extra clearance when clipping in. 
  2. Swing your leg over the bike and put your foot on top of the pedal so that one side ofLook delta cleat is lined up with center line of pedal (as shown above). The two small holes onLook delta cleat should also be lined up with two screws sticking out from pedal (this is howLook delta cleats attach to pedals). 
  3. Press down with foot until Look delta cleat snaps into place (you should feel/hear it click when it’s locked). Again, make sure shoe is secure before starting to ride! 4) To unclip from Look delta pedals, twist heel out to release lock. If needed, there’s also a small tab near front of Look delta cleat (see photo above) that you can push down on with toe to release lock.”

Why it’s Important to Use Peloton Shoes

Peloton shoes are designed to work specifically with Peloton bikes, no matter what model you have. That means that whether you’re pedaling away on the original Peloton Bike, the new Peloton Bike+, or even the Peloton Tread, you can use the same shoes. All you need is the right pedal adapter for your specific bike.

Most importantly, Peloton shoes provide a secure connection that can be difficult to pull out of–perfect for those challenging spin classes. Plus, they come in both SPD and Look Delta cleat styles, so you can use them with any of your favorite bikes. Simply swing your leg over your bike, put your foot on top of the pedal, and push down until you hear/feel a click–you’re now ready to ride! To unclip, twist your heel out to release the lock. So if you’re looking for a shoe that will help take your cycling game up a notch, look no further than Peloton’s signature shoes.
