Time Speciale 8 ATAC MTB Pedals
Time's latest pedal, the Speciale 8, has a mid-sized aluminum platform intended for aggressive trail riders. Its ATAC engagement system mirrors the very popular Crankbrothers design and they share a number of advantages over the various Shimano SPD clones, like a softer, more predictable release and extremely reliable engagement in muddy conditions.
Similar, but not the same, Time's version of the double-loop spring mechanism has proven to hold up better to rock smashes than Crankbrothers, and its release action is adjustable. On the flip side, Time's ATAC system requires a more directional entry than its closest rival.
