Time XEN pedals

Publié le par Adrien

Beside the new frames, the new components and the new wheels, the french company Time worked on a new pedal range called XEN.
These new pedals are entirely redesigned for a less sportive use than the RXS. Although they keep their advantages such as the lateral float, the angular flat and the release angle.

The XEN are different from the RXS for several points. First, since the weight was not a priority, the pedal/cleat surface could be enlarged for a better feeling. Second, the strenght of the spring is lower, meaning the required release and entry strength are lower. The "non-racers" will obviously like it. Third, the height difference between the pedal axle and the sole platform is 11,1mm, just like most of the competitors. As comparizon, the RXS is 8mm. Last but not least, the whole range is cheaper than the RXS. The cleats are identical for the whole road range, which is very nice for the compatibility.

The range consist of 4 models:

XEN:
  • - composite shell
  • - steel axle
  • - no spring tension adjustement
  • - cartridge ball bearing
  • - 300g the set
  • 49 euros
XEN E:
  • - composite shell
  • - steel axle
  • - spring tension adjustement
  • - cartridge ball bearing
  • - 305g the set
  • 59 euros
XEN S:
  • - composite shell
  • - steel axle, chrome plated
  • - spring tension adjustement
  • - needle bearing
  • - 312g the set
  • 75 euros

  • - composite shell reinforced with carbon fibres
  • - steel axle, chrome plated
  • - spring tension adjustement
  • - needle bearing
  • - 312g the set
  • 95 euros

About the RXS pedal range, there is no major change. Only the RXE model disappears.
