There are so many things to ponder when racing: Should you move up in the group to avoid a potential crash? Should you join the break so far from the finish? One of the last things you should have to worry about is whether you'll be able to clip in and out of your pedals with ease. The Time I-Clic 2 Racer Pedals keep that worry off your list so you can concentrate on strategy.
The retention mechanism on the I-Clic 2 Racer Pedals employs a carbon leaf spring rather than a coiled metal spring. Basically, it's a flexed blade of carbon fiber. When you step into the pedal, the cleat presses a trigger that releases the energy trapped in the leaf spring, which snaps a clasp into place over the back of the cleat. Think of a standard mousetrap; it's pretty much the same concept. When you click out of the pedals, the retaining clasp returns to a cocked, open position for the next time you clip in.
The I-Clic 2 Racer Pedals allow sprung angular float of five degrees in either direction. The cleat can also move 2.5mm laterally when clasped in the pedal. These float characteristics offer some freedom of movement, but also a secure and controlled connection to the pedal for hard efforts and sprints. You can choose one of three spring tension settings to dial in the feel of the float.
This is the second generation of the I-Clic design, and the engineers at Time made some key improvements. They added metal plates to the top side of the pedals for a more durable pedal-cleat interface. The retaining clasp was beefed up a bit, and the cleats were also made more robust to last longer. The cleats have rubberized contact points outside the pedal interface for walkability. They're also asymmetrical, so by choosing which cleat goes on each foot you can change the width of your pedal stance by 2.5mm.
The Time I-Clic 2 Racer Pedals have a steel axle and composite body. They come in two color options: Red and White.
- Composite body with flexible carbon blade absorbs shock to reduce fatigue
- Automatic pre-opening of engagement mechanism
- Foot angle adjustment
- Q-Factor adjustment-setting of lateral foot position for comfort
- 15° release angle so you can position your foot for comfort
