PRESS RELEASE: Time
A year ago, we launched our first Enduro pedal in aluminum, the Speciale 12, today, we launch its little sister the Speciale 8. The Speciale 8 is still as reliable but more compact, lighter and more affordable with a price of 149€.
The Speciale 8 is made with an aluminum body which is slightly more compact than the Speciale 12, two adjustable pins to optimize grip and a micrometric tension system to meet the demands of the most specific riders. Its easy engagement and closure system (ATAC) is well known and allows easy entry and exit even in the most difficult conditions.Technical characteristics:
• Weight: 196g per pedal/ 392g per pair
• Dimension: Length: 90mm, Width : 64mm, Thickness: 21mm
• Body material: Aluminum
• Technologies: ATAC/ Self Cleaning/ Micrometric tightening
• Cleats: ATAC 13°/17°
• Hollow steel axis- Steel bearing
• Price: 149,99€ATAC (Auto Tension Adjustment Concept)
ATAC technology was developed by our engineers to make the step-in and step-out easier in our mountain bike pedal range: enduro, cyclocross and cross-country. The step-in is made by 2 movements: one to the bottom of the pedal, and the second downward. Touring/casual cyclists will be familiar with the automatic pedals and racers looking for performance will be out in front when it comes to step-in.Self-cleaning
Self-cleaning is characterized by an instantaneous cleaning at step-in. This technology is applied to our whole mountain bike range: enduro, cyclocross and cross-country.Micrometrical adjustment
To make performance and biomechanics one and the same, we developed a system on our mountain bike pedals to adjust the spring tension. A touring cyclist looking for an easy step-out could choose the low tension position whereas a racer would opt for the high tension to have more security in extreme conditions.
The Speciale 8 is fully assembled in France in our factory in Never and, as you just watched, our ambassadors Remy Metailler and Nicolas Quéré have already tested and approved the SP8 in all conditions.
