First, we have found the Xpresso to be the easiest pedal to engage. This comes from the pedal resting in an “open” or “cocked” position prior to stepping into the pedal. In other words, the spring is trying to help you engage rather than fighting it. Second, these pedals are light. The TIME Xpresso 6 Pedals feature a steel spindle and a 102gr per pair weight making it is as light as they come. The Xpresso pedals use a lighter cleat than the competitors that is still durable and walking friendly. The entire Xpresso series features TIME’s biomechanical features including rotational float, lateral float and an incredibly low stack height. We have found the pedal also has a great feeling underfoot with a wide and stable platform and not too much force trying to recenter the cleat. All in all, this pedal is quickly becoming our go to recommendation for those without a favorite pedal system already. We really like what the Xpresso series has to offer!
TIME Xpresso 6 Pedals
Roche, Indurain, Delgado and Lemond each rode TIME pedals as they counted up ten straight Tour de France wins. A few years back, TIME introduced a somewhat revolutionary pedal that featured a lighter weight carbon leaf-spring and a more simplified and easier entry mechanism. TIME will admit that these pedals, the Iclic and the Iclic2, weren't quite dialed to perfection. A few years and lots of revamping later, TIME brings perfection to the table in their new Xpresso pedal lineup.
