move over eggbeater- minimalist pedal.

I do like the look of them and the 240g for steel option really does tempt the inner weight weenie!

I’m guessing thats without cleats but it’s not the biggest weight saving.Posted 3 years agonjee20Subscriber
Mmmm, interesting. I agree with Stoner though, looks like it would be very easy to skate straight over the pedal. Could make for mess race starts, particularly with some of the racier Shimano shoes which have no tread in the midsole.
The bits that actually clip into the shoe look quite thin too, like they’d wear/bend very fast. Perhaps a race day only pedal.Posted 3 years agosimons_nicolai-ukMember
Hadn’t seen those new Time pedals – look interesting. Barely any heavier than the XC4’s I’m on at the moment but with a decent size platform.
Cheaper ones are always better value though –Posted 3 years ago
Mx6 – 437g £60
mx8 – 364g £100 (£1.80 a gram saving over model down)
Mx12 – 322g £230 (£3 a gram saving over model down)

Indeed. I can only imagine the weight of the non-caged versions getting very light! As long as they maintain the durability, then for me, the combination of light (enough!) and usefulness means Time still win every time. I don’t want, or need, to be faffing around doing bearing changes and/or maintenance….!Posted 3 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
Only time will tell with this one. No chance of backing it blind on kickstarter for me.Posted 3 years ago
Plus, any change in pedal system requires 2 pairs of cleats and 3 sets of pedals for me which is a fair old investment when you move away from the cheapest shimano/eggbeaterssimons_nicolai-ukMember

Maybe, but my problem with the really light times has been the lack of support. I found the XS pedals didn’t support the shoe enough – the side sections of the XCs were much better.
The XS’s go floppy on the bushings as well in a way the XCs don’t seem to. Presume the light version are the http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/time-atac-xc8-carbon-pedals/rp-prod95072 range which just prove a big lump of plastic doesn’t weight much.Posted 3 years ago
