ABOVE: Close up of Time RXS carbon titanium pedals
I started racing in a few duathlons this year. At the present time, I can’t afford to go out and purchase a time trial bike, so I’m always on the search for gear to upgrade my Trek Madone 6.5 road bike. I’ve been thinking about purchasing a new pair of lighter weight road bike pedals. I’ve been researching pedal brands and models and decided I wanted to get a pair of Time RXS carbon titanium pedals.
Manufacturer: Time Sport
Weight: 195 grams per pair
Features: composite carbon pedal, hollow titanium axel, adjustable +/- 5 degrees of float
If you aren’t in a hurry to purchase these pedals, shop around. I’ve found them on sale at a couple of online stores. I purchased my Time RXS carbon titanium road bike pedals from Price Point for only $259.95. I’ve also seen them on sale at Bike Nashbar for $379.95.
Time pedals claim to be 100% compatible with all brands of cycling shoes. I had been using a pair of Shimano pedals with my Trek road bike. I had no problem adding the Time cleats to my Specialized road bike shoes. I bought a second pair of cleats, so I can also use my Lake triathlon shoes with the new pedals, when I race in duathlons and time trials.
Time also makes a set of Time RXS carbon road pedals, which weigh 260 grams per pair, and retail for $174.95. Although not as lightweight as the carbon titanium model, they offer a more affordable option for anyone thinking of upgrading their road bike pedals.
