The v.2 4-hole cleats are very light. If you go with the Speedplay Nanogram Zero with the 4-hole cleats, that totals 186.5 grams. While by my math the Xpresso 12 + cleat weight is 237g.
I did the calculation of cleats plus pedals against dura ace a while back, I think the difference was extremely small, maybe 15 grams or so.
Given the extremely small amount of weight savings between the high end pedal systems, I'd say this isn't a spot to look for savings, you (the OP) should pick a pedal system that you find most comfortable to use.
Speedplay Zero stainless steel 206g, 116g for cleats, total 322g
Speedplay Zero Ti 164 grams, 116g for cleats, Total 282g
Shimano Dura Ace 248 grams, 68g,for cleats, total 316g
With SpeedPlays and View-Speed you can have a setup as shown in the picture below ..... and save a few aero Watts ... if faster speed is the goal .....
Just picture your shoes with all the irregular pedal aero surfaces churning the air when pedaling vs. a streamlined smooth approach ....
Check the Bont shoe on the left with the fully retracted Speed Play pedal ... like an airplane retractable landing gear .... (the heel striker contact pad comes off for races.)
Watt savings vs. regular SpeedPlay verified in the San Diego Low Speed Wind Tunnel.
You send your shoes to us (most any brand shoe) and we add the crepe sole (about 60 grams). Patent Pending.
