I bought some time ago the Xpresso 12.
I was not impressed. They were looking like cheap ass plastic childrens pedals made for a childrens bike.
Even the (12) print is done poorly.
Out of the box one pedal was seemly ok while the other had a click while turning the axle. Tried to examine the phenomenon, didnt matter how I was holding the pedal, upside down/diagonal. The click was Always on the same moment in the turning.
Besides that one of the cleats was not right produced. maybe you think its made from one piece but in fact it exists from 2 pieces pressed in eachother.
Then the fact they have sharp edges. How is it possible that a manufacturer of an A-brand with a history in pedals, makes such a beginners fault in designing? Idiotic.
I have send them back for a replacement, which i would get before the weekend the shopowner told me. They had in stock and would send me immediately a new pair. After 10 weeks waiting several mails and phonecalls I gave up and asked my money back.
Some later I decided to order elsewhere and because I had doubts I decided to buy a cheaper pair, the Xpresso 8. i bought the Pro version, which should come in total black. However I received the normal 8 red ones. After a few mails I finally managed to bring over to the shop that i ordered black ones and not red. The respons was that they had the pro's only in white, if I wanted the white ones . . . . .
Nooooo. Sailant detail: The red ones I received had a flaw. one had a braun print on it and the other white print.
Really, Time has a very mediocre quality control. And a stupid design department too.
Finally, I gave up the Xpresso model.
Maybe in the future i will try their next model, when they have found their brains back . . . .
