Time’s pedal system has become the also-ran of the road bike pedal market, which is dominated by Shimano, Look and Speedplay. However, its Xpresso pedals are still going strong and the range includes the ultra-light 133g-a-pair Xpresso 15. At £400 these are a bit extravagant, but the Xpresso 6 is more reasonably priced and weighs just 80g a pair more.
