    Which Time ATAC pedals for new SB66C build

    Hello,

    I'm about to start my new build of a SB66c. Currently own a 2009 575, with Time ATAC XS Carbon pedals, and am quite pleased with them.

    So for my new SB66c I don't know if I should stick with the XS Carbon again, or go with the new Time ATAC XC 6. I know the XC 6 are slightly lighter (38 grams, to be exact), but which is a better pedal?

    I haven't been able to read any online feedback on the new Time ATAC XC 6, which just became available.

    Thanks for reading!

    I'm using my old Z controls, but might put on my atac carbons to give a little more clearance.
    Can't see the new Times being that different to the old ones. I'd give them a go.

    I've had the same pair of XSs for 6 years now, with nothing wrong with them except the seals sometimes squeak. The new ones haven't been around long enough to have data like that. Hopefully they are just as good (because, IMO that's the big thing Time have going for their pedals), but it will be a few years before we know that, IMO.

    The XCs look a little smaller, not that it matters.
    My old Atacs have outlasted 3 frames now. If it were me, I'd just keep the pedals you have.

    Thanks Joules / Kiwi for your feedback.

    I still have the 575 and will not take the XS from it. So the point is whether the new pedals I get for the SB66 should be XC or XS. Yes, XC seem smaller, and they are slightly more expensive than XS, and since I prefer larger pedals, I'll probably go with the XS Carbon.

    Just been to the LBS to order some new shoes, they looked up the price of some XC 6s while I was there.
    Surprised how cheap they were, so ordered some as well.
