    If looks could kill.

    TIME has an all-new off-road pedal and it's quite the looker. Known as the Speciale 12, we would buy this pedal on looks alone, but when you throw in the performance and durability that TIME pedals are known for, well then, you have a winner. TIME designed this pedal to exclusively meet the needs of an enduro rider and constructs the pedal body from premium 6106-T6 aluminum, often used in aerospace applications, which it claims is 20% more durable than other grades of aluminum. It allows TIME to machine the body as one piece where others must create bodies as two separate pieces. An added benefit is it allows TIME to anodize the pedals in the beautiful Blue, Gray, and Red colors we have here and laser etch the graphics. A hollow steel axle further bolsters durability and doesn't flinch in the face of a huck to flat or a harsh pedal strike.
    In addition to the stability boosting and power transfer benefits of the wide platform, TIME includes 8 adjustable pins per pedal for added traction and a micro-adjustable spring tension release system to dial these bad boys to your personal preferences. The pedals continue with the proven and patented ATAC engagement system and cleats allowing for positive clipping in and predictable releases. The design is also self-cleaning to help remove trail debris for more consistent entry and release. Like all TIME pedals, the Speciale is made in its Nevers, France factory.
    • An enduro pedal built for adjustability and durability
    • Steel axle and aluminum body handle the hits
    • ATAC dual-arch retention system for positive entry and release
    • 8 adjustable pins add grip against shoe's sole
    • Optimized release angle of 13 or 17-degrees via a reversible cleat
    • +/- 5-degrees of lateral float (6-millimeters)
    • Item #TME001A

    Great all mountain pedal - for any trail

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    When I started mountain biking racing in the 90’s you rode time ATAC pedals (period). Their biggest drawback was their durability. Not a lack of mind you, but excess - you put them on your bike and totally forgot they were there; no issues, ever. Whole seasons went by without removing them from my bike, (Cannondale F800 with a head shock was my race bike for a few years - even raced an entire collegiate season with only a front rim brake…), until your cleats were worn to nubs. As I started to find more and more enjoyment in less competitive pursuits and finding my way onto squishier bikes I moved closer towards a larger platform DH clipless pedals from crank bros. As time progressed I moved even further and was caught in the wave of “enduro-madness" and have spent my time since playing as much as possible aboard flat pedals. I recently moved to SLC from the PNW where flat pedals, long travel bikes and rough trails are the norm. Here in SLC and lots of other places I have lived and ridden there is a lot more diversity in the trials – which had me thinking about swapping back to riding clipped in again. When I 1st saw the Speciale pedals from time it was the clipless pedal I always wanted – large all metal platform – time functionality that I was used to. I especially like the adjustable pins to keep that locked feeling that I am used to with flat pedals. I am pumped to get some more time on these and see how long it takes to remember they are even there.

    Crepes, fries, baguettes and now pedals?

    From Joan of Arc to Andre the Giant, there has no been no shortage of French influences. During the French Revolution, the bourgeoisie overthrew the status quo of the aristocracy ruling the land via their monarchial Estates. But just like the common folk stormed the Bastille, Time has raided the stronghold of Shimano clipless SPD pedals.

    The large platform area combined with the aggressive pins keep you planted and in control in the same way that Napoleon Bonaparte maintained control of the post-revolution French Consulate from 1799 until 1815.

    The cleat system is similar to Crank Bros, but much easier to engage with the option of 13 or 17 degree float. The design of the pedals themselves also keep you locked in even on hard pedal strikes, contrary to what you may experience with the Crank Bros designs. Also, the Self-Cleaning deign eject obstructions much like Louis Pasteure was able to develop vaccines and antibodies to eject many of the diseases that plagued feudal Europe.

    It just goes to show that the same minds that constructed the Effel Tower are still hard at work using the skills that brought us culture, art, fromage, and pedals like no other culture can.

    Self cleaning?? How is that possible!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'v been running these pedals for almost a month now and as a long time believer in crankbrothers I think I may have found my new pedal! I like the float that I have in the pedal when I'm throwing down whips and scrubs. I have noticed that sometimes I come unclipped on accident but I think I have some breaking in to do and learning how to ride these pedals. The build quality of these pedals is phenomenal and they look amazing I love the grey color. The spindle length at 57mm is perfect and they are smooth as ever, no play whatsoever.

    It's Time (HA!) For Your New Pedals!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'd ridden Time pedals religiously for about 7 years on every bike I had, but fell off the wagon to give a couple of other brands a try, and man did I miss this company. With the Speciale being one of the most durable pedals in the market, if offers it's riders the confidence needed to tackle any kind of terrain. The spring tension is fantastic as well! While it's not difficult to clip in or release your cleats, you never worry about striking a rock and being forced to come unclipped while riding. The 2.5 degree of float (5 degrees together) help to make sure your foot and knees don't suffer from being locked in too tightly, and allow plenty of movement through your pedal stroke. Mud clearance isn't an problem with this model as the pedal itself is constructed to ensure that the debris contracted doesn't get caked into the spring or pedals bodies, allowing for optimal performance every time you clip in, no matter what the trail or race throws at you.

    Great Option!

    Wow. These are such sweet pedals. Light, durable, and easy to find. I have rode these pedals quite a few times in all conditions. They shed any mud unlike your SPD pedals. They are always easy to find and easy to clip in and out of. They 're lighter than a lot of other pedals, and even have adjustable pens for when you are getting real rowdy out there. You won't be disappointed with these. 10/10 buy again.

    The French Connection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Having never really invested in a pair of MTB pedals past a basic set of SPDs, switching to the Speciale was a night and day difference. A few rides in and I know I'll never go back. I'm still adjusting a few minor details, but overall I couldn't be happier with my choice.

    The wide platform and easy entry/release mechanism of ATAC allows for great confidence every time I click in and out. I'm no enduro rider (still using my Lake MX237s), but I appreciate the increased surface area and feel the weight penalty is worth it. If you're looking for the perfect compliment to your high-performance ride, then consider the Speciale from Time.

    I have been riding clipless pedals for a few years. Started out on some Ritchey's back in 2002 and as soon as I had some money, I moved on to Crank Brothers. I had two sets of Candy pedals, and even rode them on my road bike for a few years. I was never in love with the Crank brothers design and one day I had 3 accidental releases on a ride and decided to move on. I purchased my first pair of TIME ATAC carbon's They were quite expensive but I love the entry and release, it was so positive and they did a great job of clearing mud and debris. I ended up switching to Shimano and giving my Time pedals to my Dad to ride. I don't look at that as a mistake, Shimano makes a great pedal that lasts, but there were a few small complaints I could find. After about 4 years riding Shimano (XT, XT Trail, XTR) I decided to revisit TIME. I had such fond memories.
    I am happy to report that my memories of TIME's excellent engagement and overall performance were still accurate. If anything, I was not remembering quite how good they are. I am running these Speciale 12's on my Santa Cruz Bronson and absolutely love them! The feel of engagement is more positive than what I have been used to over the past few years. Once you are in the pedal, there is very smooth and silent float (unlike my last pedals that would give a metallic squeak occasionally while riding).
    My first ride was a wet day and dirt and gravel was sticking to my shoes, this was no issue for the pedals. I run mine with no pins in them, some people run just two pins up front and others run all 4. You can adjust the pin height which will affect how much they grip your shoes but I have not felt a need to install them. Perhaps I will give them a try. Super stoked on these pedals and plan to buy the ATAC XC8's for my gravel bike and single speed.
    Just in case you are wondering, I am using these pedals with the Giro Terraduro shoes, and a pair of 5.10 Hellcat Pro's (favorite shoe right now)
