The proven ATAC dual-arch retention system guarantees easy engagement and dependable release in all conditions. Low spring tension of the ATAC XC design causes less friction in extreme conditions, and along with a wide release angle(13° or 17°), provides consistent entry and release, allowing off-road riding with total confidence. When other pedals pre-release or jam, with ATAC XC you get quick and easy release when and only when you want it.
Self-cleaning: Mud and dirt cannot stick to the simple "open arch" engagement mechanism which is wiped clean by the cleat as you step into the ATAC pedal.
The ATAC XC body profile gives a wider angle of attack, into a cleat engagement window which is wider than on any other pedal. You can step into an ATAC pedal faster than into any other!
The wide, stable platform of TIME ATAC XC pedals distributes pedaling pressure over a large area so you won't feel a pressure point or "hot-spot" under your foot. Unlike pedals without a platform, you feel secure on ATAC XC even without being engaged.
