Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I just ordered the Crank Brothers Egg Beaters 11 for my gravel bike to replace the current XTR's. Love the XTR's but wanted to lighten my bike and the 200 gram difference was something I could not resist :D
Now I need cleats.
Which cleats (4 available) do you recommend? Thanks!

I would use the cleats made for those pedals... I tried those but didn't like the results and didn't want to buy 2 pedals, as I wanted my wife to use shimano XTR's.. I ended up with Xpedo CXR pros which are lighter then XTR and the cleats are more compatible between the two systems.

I recommend the regular Crank brothers cleats, or the ones for roadshoes if you use roadshoes ;) The light small ones that at least was available before is pretty bad and doesn't feel as safe.

The regular cleats that come with the pedals are great.
