<p>The three-model line-up, known as Cyclo, aims to combine the performance of a road pedal with the functionality of its mountain bike cousins.</p>

</ul>
<p>The Cyclo range brings together two of Time’s existing technologies by redesigning its springless IClic system to work with its ATAC mountain bike cleats.</p>
<p>Time claims that this combination creates a pedal that provides power transfer as good as the road equivalent, but with a cleat that’s easy to walk on. The cleats work with standard two-bolt mountain bike shoes.</p>
<p>The IClic system has been around for quite a while, but hasn’t featured on any off-road pedals until now. We’ve tested several road models, such as the <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/components/pedals/time-xpresso-10-road-pedals-review">Xpresso 10</a>, that use the IClic retention system – which utilises a tensioned carbon leaf spring rather than the more usual steel spring – and while we’ve been impressed with its fast and smooth cleat entry and release, premature contact-point wear has been a concern in the past.</p>
<p>The new range consists of three pedals, all of which share a Q-factor of 53mm, a contact surface area of 1,090mm², angular freedom of ± 5 degrees and lateral freedom of ± 2.5mm.</p>

</div>
<p>The top-specced pedal in the range weighs in at a claimed 128g, which is 29g heavier than Time’s similarly priced Xpresso IClic road pedal.</p>
<p>The Cyclo 10 has a carbon body with a metal sheet on the platform to limit wear. A micro-adjustment system allows you to fine-tune the tension of the sprung carbon leaf to your liking, while everything spins on a lightweight steel axle.</p>
<p>RRP is £106.99 / €119.99.</p>

</div>
<p>The next pedal in the Cyclo hierarchy weighs a claimed 129g, and has essentially the same build and features as its slightly swankier stablemate, but instead of a carbon body it sports a composite version.</p>
<p>The price is far more competitive at £80.24 / €89.99.</p>

<p>The most wallet-friendly pedal in the range weighs a claimed 145g. The Cyclo 2 has the same composite body as the Cyclo 6, but lacks the micro-adjustment tensioning system found on the other two pedals.</p>
<p>RRP is £53.49/€59.99.</p>
