Thanks to the full carbon body and hollow titanium axle, the Titan Carbons are the lightest pedal in Time's Iclic2 line up. So light in fact, the weight comes in a feathery 175 grams per pair. This shaves plenty of rotational weight without sacrificing durability.
Time's Iclic pedal derives its name from the unique entry design that is similar to a ski binding. When you exit the pedal, the cage remains open and closes when you re-enter the pedal. The Iclic2 Racer pedals employ a carbon fiber blade instead of a traditional spring to make the clip-in action easier, faster and virtually friction-free. There is simply no pedal that is easier to clip into. The pedal body is constructed from composite fibers to help keep the cost down to a minimum while still bringing the pedals in at a respectable 260 grams per pair.
What makes the Time system unique is lateral float. While almost all pedal systems have angular rotation built into the cleat, Time offers both angular float and lateral float working in tandem, built into the pedal. In short this means the shoe/foot is permitted to rotate/pivot and move side to side (laterally) to naturally adjust during the pedal stroke. The fact that both of these mechanisms are built into the pedal greatly reduces any friction that occurs. The cleat moves around during the pedal stroke and the rider is unaware that it is occurring.
