Hi,

They are no different from the previous range in that respect.

Ciao, ;)

Thx fdegrove and mavic zack and juanmoretime. I could never get used to that spring centered float. My foot would naturally turn one way but the apring would force me back. Felt like I was fighting with the pedal. Looks or speedplay and mavics/look best suit me

I'm not sure if this feature reduces the spring centered float, but you can adjust the angular float +/- 5 degrees, also a different cleat angle might overcome the problem with the centering float.
That's is set up the cleat with the correct angle and allow the centering float to bring it back to that position.

Hi,

My thoughts exactly. If the centring action bothers you then it seems to me the cleats aren't positioned correctly.
One of the beauties of the Time system is that once set up correctly you completely forget about them IME.

Ciao, ;)

Can you have it in a "zero-float" mode? À la Look black cleats.

I have a set of Xpresso 12s with a lot of miles, and the alu plates are getting pretty worn. I can't seem to find a source for the "replaceable" parts.
Anyone know where to get them?

Fell victim to my Xpresso 2s sharp edge. Still love these pedals though.

Thanks Antoine!
I ordered a couple sets of the black, which should look better with my carboned-out matt black R1.

I have a pretty nasty scar now from my cut on the R leg a few months ago. Pedals work just fine, but seriously wished the "self defense side cutting machete" wasn't there!!
