hmmm...after a quick ride I'm not sure I'll be able to clip in as quickly as the time system.

could cost me time in a cx race

Let's hope you find them rubbish then! :D

Sefton, the engaging and disengaging of pedals is subtley different between brands. I would persevere as very often things that feel different on the bike initially aren't "wrong" but just "different". Also play around with the firmness of the retention/ cleat engagement as there is a big range of adjustment on the Xpedos.

What is the experience for the owners of the xpedo m4 and m8 ti?

I had the ritchey paradigm v5, exustar pm215, 215ti and the bebop, all of them rubbish. The spd ones, poor build quality, lot's of noise, random disengaging.. the bebop cleats wear quickly, can't walk on them on rough terrain.

Been thinking of the new xpedo for my new bike, bought some s-track to give them a try.. anyone with racing time and some km's on the xpedo?


I have the M4 on my Fixie and the M4 ti on my cross bike. They both work extremely well, and should since the only difference is the ti axle. I rode Time ATAC for years but love the entry and exit of the Xpedo's better. Well functioning and very light pedal for the money.

the thing I like about time is that the surface is smooth so the foot can simply be slid forward until your in.

the epedo's have more edges so you can't just slide forward (you have to be a little more precise)

but I appreciate what your saying and it will take time to get used to them (I just worry when racing - after a quick remount when you have a split second to clip in and keep momentum).

will the xpedo cleats work just as well with shimano pedals?

I'd assume so since I'm using Shimano cleats with Xpedo pedals.

I have a couple rides on the Xpedo XMF08TT. So far I like them.
Had to loosen up the entry release slightly but that is it.
I came from XTR 980- bearing/spindles kept going bad on XTR.
Xpedo are 90 grams lighter!

Are XTR worth the extra cost?

Compared to what? Compared to a lower level Shimano pedal, no.
Compared to any non-SPD system, yes. (Look s-track, time atac etc.)
