Time RXS Pedals

3.06/5 (32 Reviews)
MSRP : $34.99


Product Description

This is one set of replacement cleats and hardware for Time's RXS Pedals. These are identical to the cleats you get with a new set of RXS pedals, and they feature Time's awesome "Cafe" profiling, which means that when you walk into your local coffee shop for a mid-ride refreshment, you don't risk slipping and falling on the tile floor. You can walk with security -- something that doesn't sound like a big deal 'til you start walking around in the cleats of other pedal brands.Time RXS cleats are compatible both with Time RXS pedals and Time Impact pedals. They are NOT compatible with Iclic pedals.

Date Reviewed: August 1, 2011

Strengths:    Modified design over the original version
Durability of metal clasps rather than the iclic version
Solid feel to clip in and out of


Weaknesses:    None now that it's been modified
Time's R+D dept need to get their act together and stop releasing products that aren't fully fit for purpose and then let the customers test for the faults


Bottom Line:   
Bought the original version of these pedals around 4 years ago and after 18 months the right hand pedal failed where the body cracked along the length of the pedal surrounding the axle. I subsequently bought the iclic version and I've totally hated the clipping in action. Plenty of forums commenting on this. My other problem is the iclic felt so loose on the foot compared to the rxs. It became so intolerable decided I needed to buy some new pedals iclic or the rxs as I never got on with the feel of Look pedals. Decided to plump for the rxs and they have completely modified the design of the pedal so I can see it should eliminate the risk of the pedal breaking. There is a thicker support bar underneath and the top platform extends across the width of the pedal much like the iclic. The clipping in is nice and solid and contrary to the iclic very consistent. The clamp and corresponding part on the shoe plate holding your foot in is made from metal so durability will be excellent unlike the iclic which relies on the material of the pedal to hold your foot in. My iclic looks quite rough after just 18 months.

Strengths:    Simple click in/out; absolutely no maintenance needed; stable feel; like the "cafe cleat" for walking.

Weaknesses:    Hard to find them on sale.

Bottom Line:   
My shop recommended Time RXS pedals when I bought my bike (I have the composite pedals). I'm completely satisfied and have just bought another pair for my old Cannondale (which had an old pair of Look pedals). Nothing wrong with the Looks, just didn't like having to switch shoes.

Strengths:    Cleats are easy to walk in and last a long time. Pedals are quiet, smooth, and reliable. Not hotspots and plenty of float for me.

Weaknesses:    Not the lightest pedal in the world, but I can't tell the difference in weight between these and pedals that are 60 g lighter (for the pair)

Bottom Line:   
I can't believe all the mediocre / negative reviews about this pedal. I've had mine for 3 years, and put about 6000 miles (10000 km) on them without any issues or maintenance.

They clip in and out easily and securely. The cleats are hardly worn at all, although I don't walk around in them much. The cleats are very easy to walk in as well, which is great for me since I don't leave my shoes clipped into the pedals and need to run through the transition area with my shoes on.

Best of all, I get no hot spots with these pedals no matter how far I ride, unlike my Speedplay Zero's on my TT bike, which leave my feet burning after just 20 miles.

I have had zero problems: no noise, no nothing.

Date Reviewed: April 19, 2010

Strengths:    none

Weaknesses:    breaks, poor produce testing/quality control before releasing to the public. If my 72kg can break these pedals, how long would they last with a 100kg sprinter?

Bottom Line:   
This review is for 2 year old rxs base model pedals(model before the First came out). The left pedal cracked in the middle of the around the axle circumference starting at the top.I replaced them with new First model pedals which now have a thicker section around the axle. Looks like it wasn't my 72kgs (160lb)that was the problem.

Cap threading on Time RXS pedals

After years of service some of my RXS pedals are becoming stiff. I realize I could send them out to Time, but this seems annoying to do for something that would take 10 minutes to fix if I removed the caps myself. I have a correctly sized strap wrench, but looking at the threads as best as I can tel ... Read More »

Time RXS pedal bearings

My Time RXS are fairly new but they've developed some play in the bearings and I can feel it while I'm pedaling. An inspection reveals that the crankarms are very solid/no play but both pedals have a little play in them and the left one is worse. Can these be adjusted or serviced? These are the " ...
