I have a set now.

I came off the RXS Titan that I've been riding for about 8 years.

I don't have much time (ha ha) in the pedals but what I can say is that they feel awesome and are way easier to get into. the clip in is super light and positive (you can also clip in with the gate closed).

I'll report more as i get more use in them, but for now I really like them.

I have the Xpresso 8 for now and they came in @ 197g for the set.

I have just gotten myself a set of these pedals.
Have to say that it is extremely well made and weighs a whole 30 grams lighter than my previous IClic2 carbon titanium which weighed in at 183grams for the pair.
I just got it mounted on the bike and will do some test riding on it soon.
I'll report back.

Here's some pictures.

Looking at the expresso's i cant help but feel that Time have taken the RSX pedal platform design and added the iclick carbon blade locking system, even the cleats look more solid (like the old RSX pedals but with carbon replacing the brass). I hope they are as good as the "old" RSX as i need replacements soon......

Irish, you can still find NOS RSX Ulteam pedals.

IMO it's actually closer to the old TBT system than the RXS one.

I'm only missing the yellow ones for my collection. :lol:

Copperbend: Did you have to show those? Thought of keeping my RXS Carbon but when seeing your pictures I have to get Xpresso 12 instead. Awesome :) Tried yet?
