TIME’s new XPRO represents the culmination of the French brand’s knowhow when it comes to developing road pedals, which spans some three decades now.
In fact, long before TIME created its first glorious carbon frameset, innovation in the way of cycling pedals is what initially put them on the bike industry map.
Calling the XPRO its “next generation” pedal, TIME took everything they learned from their successful EXPRESSO range of pedals, and gave it both a wider platform, as well as a reduction in weight and increase in aerodynamic properties.
The XPRO uses the company’s same iClic engagement system, however, according to TIME, “it’s been redesigned to allow for a more positive engagement.”
The XPRO comes in three models, the 15, 12 and 10.
The 15 represents the top-of-the-line in the XPRO range, tipping the scales at a feathery 174g for the pair, which incorporates a full carbon body, CeramicSpeed bearings and hollow titanium axle.
The 12 (188g) and the 10 (126g) rely upon the same carbon body, however, solid titanium and hollow steel axles are used to reduce cost.
The XPRO 15 will set buyers back a whopping $600, while the 12 and 10 sell for considerably less at $400 and $250 respectively.
