Speciale 8 Pedals

The Speciale 8 Pedals from Time are an enduro-focused pedal built using a slightly larger aluminum body, compared to a pared-down XC pedal, for more foot stability over demanding terrain. And to add even more grip to softer enduro and DH soled shoes while unclipped, the pedal has 4 adjustable spikes. Like the rest of the Time lineup, it has a micro-adjustable clamping system, allowing for easier or more secure release tension depending on the riding conditions and personal preference.

Another familiar Time feature is its patented ATAC engagement system or Auto Tension Adjustment Concept. ATAC technology makes clipping in and out much easier and it's made in 2 movements: engaging the cleat in the front gate, and stepping downward. This allows for easy insertion and positive, predictable release, as well as a self-cleaning design, even in the muddiest conditions. The Speciale 8 is entirely assembled in France to exceedingly high standards.

  • Steel axle and aluminum body handle the hits
  • ATAC dual-arch retention system provides positive entry and release
  • 4 adjustable pins add grip against shoe's sole
  • The release angle is adjustable between 13 or 17-degrees via a reversible cleat
  • +/- 5-degrees of lateral float (6-millimeters)keeps knees happy

I have rode Time ATAC XC pedals for 10+ years and love the ease of engagement, the way they shed mud and how durable they are. Riding in Texas there is a lot rocks and pedal strikes, I have only once had a pedal break and it was 5 years old. When I got a Stumpjumper I opted for these pedals. I was also coming back after being hit by a truck which broke my back and pelvis and I think the bigger platform provides more stability which I need now. These have the same great engagement I have come to know and love. My pedals are set for a bit more float and it makes them a bit easier to get out of. When I have to get off the bike I love knowing I will not be fumbling around to try to clip back in. I just ordered a second pair for my new Specialized Levo SL!


Do these come with cleats for the cycling shoes?

Engagement like no other

I've put it through the wringer

Time's engagement and float is like no other. Previously the MX series pedls weren't durable and didnt have tension adjustment. This has been addressed in the specials pedals. The only gripe I have is the tension screw is in a terrible location, easily smashed. The included pedal pins can also be used as spare tension screws. I don't expect these to be bullet proof like Shimano pedals, but they have a much better feel/float.

I cannot believe I have taken so long to review these pedals. They are fantastic! Brief history, I started riding clipless on some old Ritchey pedals back in 2001 or so, and they were not great. After a couple of years I bought some Cranbrothers Candy pedals, I was riding the same shoes for road and mountain and had a set of Candy pedals on each bike. They were alright, and a significant step up from the old Ritchey's. I had some accidental releases, where I would pedal into a rock and hitting the rock would release my foot. It didn't happen all the time but I had one ride where it happened three times and I was over it. I switched to the TIME ATAC carbon pedals. They were amazing, I felt more attached to my bike, they cleared mud and debris really well and they just worked. Curiosity got the better of me and I switched to Shimano and rode the XT and XTR trail and XC pedals for a number of years, up until about a year ago when the Time Speciale 12 pedals came out. I snagged a pair and was reminded about what makes Time so great. Excellent mud clearance, a very positive feel and sound when entering the pedal and quality craftsmanship. I am lucky enough to have two mountain bikes and when the Speciale 8's came out, I grabbed a pair of them as well. The 12 has a larger platform, comparable with the Shimano Saint pedal, but significantly lighter. The 8 is more inline with an XT/XTR pedal when it comes to platform size, and comes in at about the same weight as XTR. For Pedal setup, you can run the front pins, I don't, but they would keep your shoe even more planted on the pedal if you do. The Speciale 12 utilized 4 pins for maximum traction and minimal movement. If you run the pins too high you run the risk of a more difficult entry and exit. I have ridden these pedals in the FiveTen Hellcat Pro, FiveTen Kestrel, Giro Terraduro, and Shimano S-Phyre shoes and they work wonderfully.


Hey you still feel the same way about these pedals? I've been eyeing them and the reviews have been very good.
