The Sweet Spot Between Performance and Value
The Time XPRO 10 Road Pedal is the ideal blend of performance and value. Power transfer and stability are maximized with a large, 725mm-squared surface area. The bottom fairing was created to improve aerodynamics and protect the carbon blade. TIME's patented pre-opened ICLIC system allows for fast and easy cleat engagement. Tension adjustment on the carbon blade has three positions to precisely manage the pressure of the clamping mechanism. The stack height is low, which keeps the pedal lightweight with good pedaling clearance. The XPRO 10 uses a hollow, stainless steel axle.
ICLIC makes clipping off the starting line or off the stop light easy. Time's patented pre-opened pedal engagement system allows easy, secure engagement every time. Clipping out pre-opens the system for the next step in. All XPRO and XPRESSO road pedals feature ICLIC technology.

Walkable cleats (i.e. SPD) were important to me as a randonneur, but I was just not getting the float I wanted from my Shimano PD-A600 road SPD pedals. I decided to try Time road pedals againthe XPro 10 are the first Time pedals I've used since the magnesium ones I had 25 years ago! (in the mean time, I've also used Look, Shimano SPD, SPD-R and Speedplay pedals.)
I purchased the pedals through Western Bike Works Leader's Club because of the excellent price. Shipping was fast. Set-up was easy. The curve of the Time cleats was slightly less than the soles of my Specialized road shoes (size 43), so I used the included shims that fit under the front of the cleats to keep the cleats flat.
As expected, I had to tweak the cleat position several times, as well as lower my saddle a few mm. On the first two entries into the pedals, it seemed like the I-Clic didn't catch properly, but since the third entry, the I-Clic system has worked great.
- The XPro 10 with a steel spindle are relatively light weight at a great price.
- The cleats have outriggers to protect the cleat-to-pedal mating surfaces from walking wear.
- The Time I-Clic entry force needed is low, no need to pounce down on the pedals to lock in.
- Once engaged, the connection feels solid and stable.
- Release force with the stock setting is relatively low, and the release action is intuitive.
- The float feels very natural, my legs really love it!
- Just like other single-sided pedals, I sometimes have to look down to engage the pedal. I expect this to get better as I get used to them.
- Walking with these cleats is similar to other road pedal systems manageable but awkward.
- The cleat outriggers sink into soft surfaces, if you put a foot down at the side of the road, the cleats may pick up bits of grassy dirt.
TBD After 200 miles, the spindles spin more freely compared to when they were fresh out of the box. Generally this is good because the pedals hang nose up, making entry easier. However there now seems to be a little vertical play in the outboard bearing of both pedals that wasn't there initially. I hope this play doesn't increase, since some Time fans tell me that the outboard plastic bushings on the Time RXS and Xpresso pedals didn't wear as well as the earlier models' needle bearings did. The XPros have a 2-year warranty just in case.
In summary, I love the feel of the XPro pedals. If they prove durable over at least a couple seasons of riding, I would not hesitate to give them five stars.
I switched from Look to Time about 8 years ago. I am really happy with them. The pedals have a large comfortable platform. The float is a knee-saver. Only drawback is that the cleats wear down quickly, but they are inexpensive to replace.
The Time iClic feature is nice and allows for easy re-engagement of the cleat. However, the pedal-cleat interface squeaks when riding (as described in this review httpsroad.cccontentreview252571-time-xpro-10-pedals) and the small plastic faring, as Time calls it, broke within the first week or two of use.
I've had two pairs of these pedals on my bike, and love the big platform and float. I've never had any knee issues with these. My complaint with them is the squeak that lots of people report, and the fact that after about two years the right pedal broke (both pairs). Could it be a string of bad luck? Maybe. Having just broken the second pair, I'm currently debating whether I should get another pair, or get out of a bad relationship.
I was a long time user of Speedplay and they were second nature for me. I'm a fan of TIME bicycles and components so when Speedplay was purchased/merged (and I didn't like what I saw from Wahoo) I decided to give these a shot. I pretty quickly adapted to the engagement and disengagement process and I really like the large platform. I do feel that I am able to transfer more power when compared to a Speedplay type pedal. However, after only a couple of hundred miles the squeak developed and it is extremely frustrating. I want to love these pedals and I want to convert all of my bicycles to them, but I just can't do that yet until I find a long term solution to that squeak. Or until TIME fixes it.
