The Time Xpresso pedals take our award for pedal of the year 2013

Our Gear of the Year awards celebrate the finest triathlon gear we’ve tested over 2013. While some old favourites still shine though, innovative new tech has also come to the fore over the last 12 months, so we’ve rounded up the products that have made testing a genuine joy and we think will make you love swimming, cycling and running even more.

Best pedals

Time Xpresso 8 - 12 GOTY

Time Xpresso 8

Then: In March’s test of the Time Xpresso 8 and 12 pedals, we said they were incredibly stable and secure when climbing or sprinting, while the 15-degree release angle makes accidental release virtually impossible. Pedal entry is extremely quick, the cleat design has been improved and they barely bother the scales. Fast, fail-safe engagement, stability and light weight.

Now: The longer we’ve used Time’s Xpresso pedals the more we love them. Their easy-entry is perfect for triathlon, the cleats are secure for running through transition and there’s a model for every price point from £42.99-£224.99.
