Time Xpresso 6 pedals – in brief review
The Xpresso 6 is a very light conventional pedal, largely due to the use of a carbon leaf spring instead of coiled steel. This remains open until the cleat is engaged, when it snaps closed, providing +/- 5 degrees of smooth angular float, 2.5mm of lateral float and great security.
The cleats allow you two Q-factor options (the distance between your pedals), are positive in use and stand up to a lot of abuse, which the stainless steel-protected enlarged pedal platform shrugs off with ease.
But their lack of weight and improved bearing seals do mean they have a habit of not hanging down to assist engagement.
