The CYCLO is Time’s newest pedal which they say offers the same ease of entry as the Xpresso road pedal, but in the two bolt layout of a mountain biking pedal. Whether gravel ravel riding, cyclo touring or riding a Grand Fondo, cyclists can now expect the performance of a road pedal while still being able to wear mountain biking shoes, and being able to walk comfortably during stops.

Time Cyclo Gravel Pedal

Time offer the Cyclo in three models. Their top end model, the Cyclo 10, is a carbon pedal, the lightest and stiffest option, weighing in at 128g per pedal. As with the Cyclo 6 and the Cyclo 2, it utilises the I-Clic step-in system, which Time say has been specifically redeveloped to suit this pedal.

Only 1g separates the glass-composite bodied Cyclo 6 and the carbon bodied Cyclo 10. Both rotate on a lightened steel axle and both feature a metal sheet on the platform area to strengthen those areas that are stressed by friction from the shoe. They feature a micro adjustable tension system that ensures good 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.

The lower end model, the Cyclo 2 doesn’t offer the tension adjustment and is the heaviest of the range, weighing in at 145g per pedal.

  1. Time, remind us again what is wrong with dual sided pedals? They are a lot easier to clip in than single sided. What’s the upside here?

    • Weight savings and you don’t need to clip in and out very often on gravel. I use Shimano’s es600 and they’re great.

    • Time already has dual sided pedals if you prefer them.i do. They work fine.

      For those who prefer lighter pedals and larger platform that’s their new model. More choices doesn’t se wrong here. Both designs have pros and cons.

  2. The upside is the ICLIC feature, which totally kicks ass to put it mildly, combined with an ATAC cleat. So in theory you get the best of both worlds. The way these sort of pedals hang down means that they are probably A-OK for gravel riding, and the single-sidedness saves a boatload of weight. These are probably the most interesting pedal development in many years.

  3. So are these compatible with Time MTB cleats? Can you use the same pair of shoes/cleats on your MTB on Saturday and your road bike on Sunday?

  4. The only issue I see is the cleat itself. Those brass Time cleats don’t take a beating well compared to Shimano. They wear much quicker. Example: walking a few miles on a gravel road (say you have a mechanical failure). Gravel will certainly wear that cleat more than typical mountain bike riding. I’d still go with SPD and dual sided. I’m no pro and don’t weigh my gravel bike so maybe someone out there would want these. It just seems as though there are better choices out there.
