quattro pedals quattro maintenance

Very little maintenance is required with Quattro pedals. In normal conditions, the bearings are waterproof and all materials are rust-resistant. There is no need to lubricate the exterior of the pedal. The pedals are generally self-cleaning in most cases. You should occasionally inspect your pedals for damage, wear, or excessive play. The pedal is sealed, and both cartridge ball bearings inside are sealed. Do not use pressurized water on the Quattro.

Eventually the cleats and cleat platforms will wear out and need to be replaced. Inspect the cleats regularly and look for signs of wear. If you are inadvertently pulling out of the pedals (without twisting), then there is a good chance that the cleats are worn out. Another sign of wear is a feeling that the pedal is sloppy. The cleats are made of a material which is softer than the pedal body bars. This is on purpose so that the cleats wear rather than the pedal. Cleats generally last about 500 hours of riding, depending on style of riding, and riding conditions. The cleat bases should last as long as the cleats, if you minimize walking on them.
