I agree they're not perfect but they feel better than LOOK's and Dura-Ace...if only the bearings were as good as the Shimano's...not even going to discuss Speedplay...

One thing to mention for the life of me I can comprehend why is even there is the very sharp corner in the middle outside edge of the pedal. I can see someone cutting their leg pretty good with this thing

Yep - I've cut my leg up. Then got a file out, and filed the outside corners down to a 5mm rad - I recommend this as the first thing you do when you buy a set.

No doubt a design oversight & I can't see them fixing it, mostly as they'd probably need to add some metal to the moulds ($$$ new moulds / inserts) to put a radius in there.

Lets wait and see :popcorn:

Hi folks.
I've had a good look at both the Xpresso 12 and the Mavic version and am I missing anything?
Are they absolutely identical apart from the colour/branding?

I've had my RXS Carbon Ti for a while now. No problems at all but liked the look of the wider surface and less weight.
I was put off a wee bit by the red as it wouldn't match....picky I know :) so the Mavics appealed but it's hard to get myself away from the Time branding...even though I know they've collaborated!
I tell myself my foot would hide the red anyway!

Thanks

No difference aside from color/branding. I'll be going with the Mavics just because I don't want any red on my pink bike... :P

Apparently there are differences on the final QC for the Mavic ones. But the big difference is that Mavic offer MP3 on theirs. Break em for any reason in the first 2 years and the replace them.

What are the differences on the final QC? Which of TIme Xpresso 12 and Mavic Zxellium SLR Ti pedals has more stringent QC? Do you have a reliable source for the claim (I am awaiting your answer to even find out what you're claiming) of differences on final QC?

Mavic apparently demand tighter qc. Source is Mavic.

Of course the source is Mavic. Having dealt with many suppliers and reps I can tell you they love to spout all sorts of nonsense which isn't true.

MP3 is worth it alone.

As for the bs reps etc spout, we'll see once we've sold a few more which has a higher return rate.

Are the Mavic QC rejects (re-graphicized if necessary and) sold as Times, presuming they pass the less stringent Time QC? And yes, you will have to excuse me for being somewhat skeptical, although I suppose it could be true.

stuffed if I know, or care!

Skeptical? More like obtuse or pedantic.

Have you figured out which pedal is best, Mavic or Time?

It sounds a little strange if Time manufactures a pedal for Mavic that are better than their own.

Same boat here. My RXS Ti's have some play in the bearings so I shopping for pedals. Was going to try DA (boring but reliable) but if the new Xpresso design (Mavic Zxellium SLR Ti version) is proving to be a top performer I would give 'em a go! Does anyone know if this pedal has a weight limit? The Mavic site is light on tech info.

Hi gang,
the Mavic pedals are identical to the Time Xpresso series. The Zxellium SLR Ti corresponds to Xpresso 12.

Mavic and Time signed an agreement to co-develop pedal systems. It's a win for Mavic because the Time pedals are fantastic on their own, but even better (we would say) with our shoes. In particular the low weight pairs well with our shoes (very light), as do the biomechanics and low stack height (Mavic soles are super thin which can result in the lowest ball of foot to spindle distance available).

I've been riding the Zxellium SLR pedals all winter and they're holding up quite well. Wide and stable, super light, easy entry.

No weight limit on the SLR Ti pedals, but do be smart about it ..in my mind, 200lbs should be the upper limit... if you're 230 lbs I would think twice about Ti pedal spindles.

happy riding!! don't hesitate to hit me with PM for specific questions, only because I get email notification and can respond more promptly.

Can anyone tell me if the xpresso pedals are free floating or spring centered like other previous time pedals?
