The Atac XC8 from Time has been specially designed with competitive XC, MTB and gravel riders in mind for the ultimate off-road riding experience. Boasting a lightweight carbon body alongside its chromed, oversized steel axle, you can be assured this duo is ready to take on any challenge that the mountain has to throw at you. To top it off, this model features the exclusive ATAC system for effortless engagement while its open design self-cleans any debris off the pedals each time you step in. This is the perfect choice of upgrade or replacement for taking your off-road pursuits up a notch.
ATAC technology was developed by Time's engineers to make the step-in and step-out easier in their MTB pedal range: enduro, cyclocross and cross-country. The step-in is made by 2 movements: one to the bottom of the pedal, and the second downward. Touring/casual cyclists will be familiar with the automatic pedals and racers looking for performance will be out in front when it comes to step-in.
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.
