My son bought a bicycle with these clipless pedals and is hoping to find the appropriate cleats. What pedal model are they?enter image description here

    You might do better to simply buy new pedals, which will come with one pair of cleats.

Nice bike!

They are single-sided SPD pedals, made by Ritchey, compatible with the common 2-bolt mountain SPD cleat. Note that there are two different, much larger road SPD cleats (SPD-SL ), that are not compatible with these.

(note the numbers refer to the image dimensions -- both cleats are the same size)

They are older road/touring pedals that use the shimano SPD standard.

Shimano, LOOK and other SPD 2-bolt standard cleats will fit

    I've never heard about 2-bolt SPD compatible Look cleats

    I guess those numbers aren't the dimensions - 1200✕1200 mm would be a very big pedal! Commented Oct 24, 2021 at 13:46

The early clipless Shimano pedals were licensed copies of Look Delta. When they brought out the SPD type for MTB it was followed shortly by tiny Ultegra and Dura-Ace models with MTB cleats. They disappeared quickly from the market. Mainly because the range of available road shoes for two-bolt cleats was limited and the tiny contact surface put too much pressure on the soles.

Your pedals are compatible with SPD mountain cleats. Buy the ones with uni-directional release to avoid unexpected untimely release.

A word of caution: Be aware that when used with thicker soled MTB shoes, the pedals will sit deeper in the soles which in turn could hinder a smooth and safe release. Shims under the cleats could be required. In any case, check for easy and safe release before entering traffic.

    These should release as cleanly if not more so than current MTB SPDs (slightly more to interfere than M520, much less than M324/M424). If they don't, rather than shimming, which defeats the purpose of choosing SPDs over road cleats, trim away the interfering material. But absolutely test somewhere safer - they could be far stiffer than you're expecting if they've not been used in a while,

  • My mental block on Ultegra and other expensive lines clearly stopped me from seeing the newer equivalents (but actually I prefer the way M520s are always the right way up)
