I love my expresso 12 as well, but coming from RXS Carbon Ti , there is not much difference, the lateral float on the RXS is smoother, there seems to be more resistance in the xpresso due to the cleat material. Extra platform size is immaterial if you have a pair of stiff carbon soles.

My RSX Ulteam pedals have served me well since 2008. They were on my R3SL then transfered to my R5. Nothing has broken on them in 5 years and functionally they feel as good as new. But the engagement still pisses me off. I recently swapped them out for Speedplay. I have to say for me the Speedplay pedals, especially with Speedplay dedicated Sidis, are sublime. They just make my pedal action feel more powerful and faster. The whole engagement process is 10X better. Now all 3 of my bikes are Speedplay equipped.

In my view Speedplay with dedicated Speedplay shoes are the best option out there for function and at 120g (titanium model with alu bowties) one of the lightest.

You know that float feel is adjustable right? just turn the little flat head screw that runs acrodd the carbon spring and you get 3 different settings for 'feel'

Maybe one of the lightest but 'in my view' they are not the best functioning pedals, the placebo effect is noticeable when first used but when you return back to TIME or Shimano etc the difference in cleat/pedal interface becomes obvious...but hey opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one... :wink:

Not a bunch of time but I did get two rides in the weekend on the pedals totaling about 85 miles. These click in so much easier than the RXS's but still a very audible click to let you know you're in. No false clip in's. The connection to the pedal is so much more solid feeling over the RXS's.

I would say I need a few more rides on the Xpresso 12's but I am really loving these pedals already! :thumbup:

Mine weighed in at 152 even with a coat of anti-seize on the threads!

FWIW, I've been using Xpresso 2s (the low end model) since the start of the year. Really like them so far - clip in is easy, nice wide platform, and plenty of adjustability.
Nothing broke yet (knock on wood). Because of the futuristic shape, the outer edges are quite sharp and I've scratched my calves a few times just not paying attention when walking the bike.

I've had mine for a while now, too. I own the Xpresso 8 pros. Easily the best pedal for me that I've ridden. I appreciate the extra pedal platform area compared to my previous Speedplays. They spin super smoothly. They don't need the same level of maintenance. And for a lighter guy, clipping in is a pure joy. No more throwing my weight onto the pedal to get in. Downsides so far are they clog just as readily as speedplay. The cleats will wear fast judging on their wear level currently -- I hope that replacements are cheap and easy to source.

x2 on the clogging! Stepped off on soft ground (not muddy, just soft) to take a piss and then couldn't clip in for a good minute. Had to find a stick to clean out the cleats. :) Never even thought about it when I had eggbeaters on my road bike.

Two new pairs of iClic2's just installed and have had a half dozen rides. Early impressions really good. Came off of Crank Brothers Quattros.

I just upgraded from SPD's and installed my Xpresso 6 today. This will be my second year cycling so I don't know crap in comparison to many of you... But I have to say "wow" these were very nice. They'll be much better for my centuries. Admitted newbi here but nice is nice. Hope to God they hold up.

Had some iclic2 carbon ti's since January and the metal plates just broke off on one of the pedals.
After playing with Look Keo blade ti and Time Iclic2's for about a year now, I am back to DA carbon. They are just so solid and never have problems. Although I was tempted with the Xpresso 12's, I have just had too many problems with french pedals. LBS let me swap the Time's for DA9000.
