TIME Sport (France) - Press Release: Here's what the gravel market has been waiting for: road pedal performance with mountain pedal functionality. The Cyclo 10 is a road pedal built around a mountain cleat, allowing you to use a mountain bike shoe and have road pedal performance. A secure connection with tight coupling and tension adjustment ensures great power transfer, support, and performance.
Using our ATAC mountain bike clamping mechanism and cleat, the Cyclo pedal is perfect for gravel and adventure rides. Our easy entry system and self-cleaning design allows the Cyclo to consistently perform in adverse conditions, while a carbon body and hollow steel axle keep the weight low.
A pedal dedicated for Cyclotourism and Gravel cyclists:
The practice of cyclotourism has existed for many years and many cyclist had to chose MTB pedals, or unsuitable road pedals which made walking difficult. At the same time, with the growth of Gravel bikes, cyclists who practice this discipline have a need for lightness, performance and a large surface area, while having the opportunity to walk with the cleats. That’s why TIME has developed a pedal completely dedicated to these practices and the need of these users. With these new pedals, a cyclist can now ride and walk with their mountain bike shoes, while having a powerful pedal to accompany them throughout their outings.
New MTB I-clic technology:
The I-CLIC technology is a patent developed by TIME in 2011. This interlocking system ensures that our road pedals are the easiest and fastest to hit the market. For the development of the new Cyclo-Gravel pedal, we developed a new I - Clic concept for use with MTB cleats, and thus deposited a new patent on the function I - Clic dedicated to MTB. This ensures speed and ease of single footwear.
The first carbon Cyclo - Gravel pedal of the market:
Many cyclo now exist in carbon to provide both lightness and rigidity. However, no carbon pedal had been created to meet the needs of these disciplines. With a carbon body, the CYCLO 10 is the lightest pedal in its class. It also has a large platform offering a very good power transfer and pedaling comfort.
Stainless steel platform:
A stainless steel sheet is added to the platform of the pedals Cyclo 10 and 6 to strengthen the areas most stressed by the friction from the shoe.
A secure connection with tight coupling and tension adjustment ensures great power transfer, support, and performance. A touring cyclist looking for an easy step-out could choose the low tension position whereas a racer would opt for the high tension to have more security in all conditions.
