Time released their first enduro-oriented Speciale 12 clipless pedal last year and the French firm is now following up with the launch of what Time calls the Speciale 12’s little sister, the Speciale 8.
Compared to the 12, the Speciale 8 has a smaller aluminum platform with two adjustable traction spikes on each side of the pedal surrounding the same proven self-cleaning ATAC (Auto Tension Adjustment Concept) clipless system rolling on a hollow steel axle with steel bearings.
It also features a choice of 13 or 17 degrees of float and micrometrical adjustments to further fine tune its spring tension. Each of them is also proudly assembled at Time’s factory in Nevers, France.
The smaller footprint also makes the Speciale 8 a tad lighter at a claimed 196 grams per pedal. And perhaps the best news of all, the Speciale 8 is more affordable at $125 per set.
