All the Proprietary Innovation of the High End Models, Now in an Entry-Level Offering
Weighing in at under 100g, the Time ATAC XC2 MTB Pedals feature many of the same proprietary innovations you'll find on higher end TIME pedals.
Time's ATAC (Auto Tension Adjust Concept) line of pedals follows the design principles of their road line. Simple design, easy engagement, plenty of float. The ATAC pedals were always seen as an alternative to Shimano mainly because you didn't need to fuss with the cleats, because the pedals were much harder to jam with mud, and because the spring tension never needs to be adjusted. The one adjustment the user can make is whether the release angle is 13 or 17 degrees. And this is done by running the cleats in standard orientation or in reverse.
While the Time ATAC may look similar to Crank Brothers pedals, the spring design is completely different, offering consistent cleat retention regardless of what happens to the bottom of the pedal. Another advantage over pedals of similar float in the mountain bike world is the tension of the ATAC system, offering a more consistent release and a solid, stable feeling underfoot.

Not often I get to click on 5 stars for overall rating AND value. I have been riding Time ATAC probably since they hit the market. These plastic body ones get the job done and are lightweight enough to use on both my mountain bike and road bike. I am 71 years old and have some mobility issues due to knee replacement and ankle fusion. The "Easy" cleats that are now included are working perfectly with my limitations. Easy in and out but hold firmly while riding. I have probably owned a dozen pair of Time ATAC pedals over the decades on my fleet of bikes, and I have never had one break or fail, even with all the rock bashing that happens mountain biking. I have been riding the plastic body ones on my gravel bike for a couple years and now on my mtn bike. No problems so far. All the critical parts are steel, so don't let "plastic" scare you away. Highly recommended.
I have converted all of my bikes to Time ATACs. During cyclocross season, these things take a beating. I have never broken one, and I have one set with four full CX seasons, and they still spin smooth. I have seen quite a few broken egg beaters, and SPDs just don't clear the mud.
They are a little heavier than other alternatives.
