All TIME pedals ship from the factory at the lowest tension setting. We recommend that riders new to clipless pedals start with this setting before increasing the tension.
The release tension of a clipless pedal is the amount of effort needed to release the foot from the pedal. Increased tension requires more effort to disengage from the pedal, while decreased tension requires less effort.
Factors determining a rider's ideal pedal tension include personal preference, riding style, and experience.
For more information about the tension settings and adjustments of your specific model of TIME pedal, please refer to the TIME Sport Pedal User Manual.
