SPECIALE, the ultimate balance between aesthetics and performance.
Developed by our engineers for the demands of the sport, this enduro pedal is made of a 6106-T6 aluminum body which is 20% more durable than other grades of aluminum. A wide platform, adjustable pins for optimal grip and a micro-adjustable clamping system to meet the demands of the most advanced riders.
The proven ATAC engagement system (TIME patent) allows easy clip in and positive, predictable release as well as a design that self-cleans even in the most difficult conditions. Like all of our pedals, the SPECIALE is 100% made in France at our factory in Nevers, exceeding our high material and production standards.
Simple and speedy step-in due to a vital step-in angle
ATAC technology was developed by our engineers to make the step-in and step-out easier in our mtb pedals range: enduro, cyclocross and cross-country. The step-in is made by 2 movements: one to the bottom of the pedal, and the second downward. Touring/casual cyclists will be familiar with the automatic pedals and racers looking for performance will be out in front when it comes to step-in.
Each time you step into the TIME ATAC the lever clears out any debris (mud, sand, etc...).
Self-cleaning is characterized by an instantaneous cleaning at step-in. This technology is applied to our whole mtb range: enduro, cyclocross and cross-country. All the top competitors like Wout Van Aert, Victor Koretzky and Jordan Sarrou are using TIME pedals with this technology.
Choice of the release angle
For TIME, performance and biomechanics are one and the same. Only by respecting the natural movements of your legs and joints, can you decrease the risk of joint trauma and optimize performance in the following 3 points: security, ergonomics and performance. For this purpose we developed two types of cleats: The Easy Cleat features a step-out angle of 10º, made for touring cyclists and for riders who require an easier release angle. The standard reversible cleat allows you to swap the cleats to achieve a release angle of 13º for an easy step-out or 17º for a wider angle of release or step-out.
To make performance and biomechanics one and the same, we developed a system on our mtb pedals to adjust the spring tension. 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 extreme conditions.
