After much fanfare and an exciting debut at last years "Euro-Bike" trade show in Milan, and lots of anticipation, the new Time iClic has finally arrived! This pedal does away with the only viable fault in the RXS pedal: it's Pitbull-like security made it inherently hard to clip into.
The new iClic pedal uses a retainer that holds the cleat lock open when you clip out so that minimal effort is required for re-entry. The cleat litarally falls into place. In fact, these are the easiest pedals to clip into on the market, yet they still hold your foot in like vise-grips. The Time I-Clic pedal also features a new carbon blade spring that replaces the traditional coil-wound steel spring. This shift saves weight over the previous RXS design. All the other Time trademarks remain like the rotational and lateral float. The platform is even wider now, and the new cleats have an even lower profile. The cleats are also lighter thanks to the elimination of the brass cam which has been substituted for a composite one.
I received both the iClic carbon ($250) and iClic Fiberflex ($150).
