    Not often I get a product and really like it enough to post about it.
    Time ATAC DH pedals are great, Nice platform, easy entry and exit. Much better that others I have tried in the past.

    Yep good aren’t they 😀

    Been running them for years on my gnarpoon. Can’t imagine using anything else.

    Do you mean TIME ATAC DH 4 Pedals? Love normal Times but don’t get on with them as they offer no more useful support and less clearance.

    Likewise, chuffin’ marvelous pedals.

    although i’m pretty sure mine are called Z controls, but they look identical.

    You mean the grey ones, Pinky? 😉

    Mine look like these;

    I find those big metal bits just hook up on stuff and don’t offer any more support.

    Depends on the shoes you use Geda and how worn the cleats are, nice for popping down the shops in trainers too 😉
    Not had issues with catching the pedals either

    My z-controls are old enough to be cream/beige.

    I think they might be indestructible given what I’ve don to them.

    I too love mine on the full suss. Great pedals and take some heavy abuse too. Much friendly on dodgy old knees!

    The ATAC design is great. Mine are now about a million years old and still work brilliantly.

    And they were 2nd hand when I bought them….

    IIRC freeride was the name for the black ones as I have a set of each.

    I have some on my patriot and I have had off few offs on sharp corners, hidden stumps or tight gulleys. One of the plus points of clipless over flats for me is that clipless pedals are stubby, Though I am happy riding both.

    The ones above that CFH has shown first are better than the second ones in his post for one simple reason. The bottom ones rely on that pin to tension the spring (you can see it with a flat screwdriver slot on it) whereas the ones above are tensioned by the spring sitting against the main body.

    I have both, love them both, but lost one of the pins out of them. merlin replaced them under warranty, then I lost a pin again, by which time chicken cycles are no longer the importer, and extrauk (quite rightly I suppose) didn’t want to do owt, as I had bought them before they took over the product line.

    I managed to bodge a wee screw and bolt assembly in there, which is holding up for now, as I can’t bear to throw them away. Awesome pedals, quite chunky and prone to catching on stuff, but brilliant otherwise.

    Mine are black but don’t have he ‘DH’ bit on them.

    They do have the pin tensioner though.

    Anyway, whatever they are, I find them perfect for my type of riding. Can’t recommend ATACs highly enough.
