The TIME Xpresso 2 Pedals are a great choice for cyclists just learning to clip in and out, thanks to their large composite platform, Iclic pre-open clipless system, and adjustable blade tension. Tipping the scales at a mere 230 grams, the Xpresso 2 Pedals are relatively lightweight option, especially considering their cheaper price point. Time uses their Iclic concept of a pre-open clipless system to facilitate easier entry and exit, making this pedal an excellent choice if you’re tired of struggling to get into and out of your existing road pedals. It automatically pre-opens the engagement mechanism, so your foot quickly engages or releases from the pedal with minimal effort. Not only is the Xpresso 2 incredibly easy to get into and out of, but it’s using a large composite platform that gives you a bit of reassurance when you’d normally struggle to find your pedal underfoot, then clip in while riding at a brisk pace. This large composite platform is streamlined to increase its aerodynamics and the pedal itself has a 13. 5-millimeter stack height to maximize energy transmission with every pedal stroke. They come with 5 degrees of angular float and 2. 5 millimeters of lateral float. Although the float isn’t adjustable, you can fine-tune the sensation of float with a screw that controls the carbon blade’s retention. By adjusting this screw, you’ll fine-tune how secure you’ll feel once clipped into the pedal. Additionally, you can adjust the Q-factor to set the foot’s lateral positioning inboard or outboard, depending on your pedaling goals.
