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.
