    TIME ATAC Z Control ride report.

    Hi all

    I have just finished a heavily muddy ride here in the UK with the new Time Z control pedals. They were my first spd pedals and i must confess that i was concerned at first with the ability to engage disengage quickly. As soon as i hit the trail my concerns disolved. Clip in and out quickly went on as a second nature to me but the real news is that the pedals are 100% mudproof. My shoes were TOTALY covered with mud and i mean very thick layer of mud...i said to myself that i couldnt clip anymore...to my surprise i clipped in like they were clean...no quirks or anything. While they were totaly MUDDED out i was able to clip in and out throughout a tight single track with no problems whatsoever. In one occasion i made successfully an emergency clip off on a turn were i sled sideways heavily and i saved the day for me near a river bank.
    Anyway all in all...strongly suggested pedals. Bombproof and mudproof. I am lucky i didnt pick the 959s instead. Well done TIME.

    Math2p14,

    The Times are actually not SPD. SPD stands for Shimano Pedaling Dynamics. SPD and Time are actually two different clipless systems. Times tend to be the most popular because they have more float, and tend to shed mud better than SPD. It all comes down to personal preferance in the end. After trying Times for almost a year, I have to say I like SPD better. Anyho, this is all beside the point.

    Thanks for giving a ride report, I know several people have been asking about the Z controls. Glad you like them!!
    Booyah!!

    I happen to know what SPD means...i am just used to refer to clipless pedals as SPDs regardless of make.
