Although a very different pedal when compared to the Xpresso series, the RXS Carbon has a devote following. Enough so, that Time continues to produce them. Although the RXS doesn't have the Xpresso's brilliant entry design, they do offer the same bio mechanics with identical amounts of lateral and rotational float. Both angular and lateral float working in tandem make the Time pedal design unique and the most bio mechanically correct pedal available today. The shoe/foot is permitted to rotate and move side to side(laterally) and 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.
Construction of the RXS Carbon features a full carbon body with hollow steel axle. The nickel-plated engagement arch allows for smooth action and helps protect the carbon body from wear.
Included are a pair of one-piece Time RXS cleats. They feature three integrated non-slip stabilizers that grip the ground and provide excellent stability. They are not part of the engagement system, so they do not effect entry and exit when worn down. The engagement cleat is tucked away underneath and inside the cleat so it will not come in contact with the ground while walking around.
