Time ATAC XS Carbon MTN Clipless Pedals
The Carbon model is at the middle of the XS line featuring a carbon body and a chromoly axle with an aluminum spring axle. Time has found ways to improve what has been one of the most talked about pedals. The new XS line incorporates Time's S.E.T. (Sensor Elasticity Tuner) technology, which controls how much resistance there is to rotational float. They feature stronger rails that are now square and incorporate automatic cleat stops to prevent the sloppy feel associated with the previous ATAC models. The new ATAC XS arch design keeps your foot centered on the new wider pedal platform for improved foot stability.
I've had these pedals for about 3 years and they've performed flawlessly. They've been rebuilt once and that's not bad considering the mud, wet and freezing weather they see in the NW winters. The 13 degrees is perfect for my more all mountain riding style and still allows me to maintain contact with the bike when in the air. Only complaint would be the wear of the brass cleats. Compared to my SPD's these wear more quickly and need to be replaced about once a year to alleviate any additional play that develops due to wear.
Yes, my friend, I am once again back into your clutches. It's been a good six years since I tried to like the kitchen utensil pedals and after many pedal bodies separating from the spindle I come back into your slightly heavier, but much more dependable grip. While true the stainless steel mud shedders that dug into my carbon sole were lighter and shed mud, it's you whom I come running back to for the stable platform you provide and the release of tension afforded from your 'Sensor' adjustments. I shall never again stray from you...until the next shiny thing.
I have been using these pedals for long time, no regrets!!! Every dollar you spent is well worth

I have been using Time pedals for years. They have never let me down! They are easy to get in and out of. I have never had my foot stuck in them. They still work in mud. I have never had to work on them. Just clean them off and spray lube on springs. If you don't the dirt in the springs will cause them to creek.
