Time Atac XC 2 Pedals
The proven ATAC dual-arch retention system guarantees easy engagement and dependable release in all conditions. Low spring tension of the ATAC design causes less friction in extreme conditions, and along with an optimized release angle, provides consistent entry and release, allowing MTB riding with total confidence. When other pedals pre-release or jam, with ATAC you get quick and easy release when and only when you want it, no matter what the terrain may be.
These are the continuation of the older ATAC pedals - as opposed to the XC series with their flat retaining bars, these feel exactly the same as the old pedals (the ones shaped kind of like a bar of soap). Same ATAC tolerance (preference?) for very worn cleats, which the XC series also doesn't have (though those feel pretty awesome with brand new cleats). I thought of my pedals for the first time in a long time the other day on my first ride since the thaw, unclipping to maybe foot down on a rocky uphill bit, then clipping back in at the top. How I didn't ever think about where my foot was or what it was feeling. That's how it ought to be.
