"More information is expected in the next few weeks, after the main Shimano office in Japan comes back from holiday, but it might be that the SLP will not appear in buyable form till some time next year."

I was in my LBS when the shimano rep came in, last week. They are already taking orders for the new pedal, and promising delivery before the first of the year. Of course this is no guarantee of delivery. Fyi the pedal was pictured in the reps catalog.

Didn't Shimano have a similar design originally? I thought the went with SPD to get away from that style in the first place. Oh well, I agree the non-slip material is a bonus. I might buy 'em if they don't go for $250.

...bolt-hole pattern. Since the new Time Impact is also using the 3-hole pattern, shoe compatibility issues may soon be a thing of the past. Yay!

Time uses a three hole pattern with the adapter. The adapter is wafer thin-not like the old clunky and heavy adapter. Those with Time shoes will still use a 4 hole pattern to mount the time cleat to the sole.

If so, how do they feel? Any observations compared to the previous Equips?

Yes, I have the new Time Impact from TotalCycling. I have used Time pedals since 1988! except for a four week period in 2001 when I tried Campy Profit. The new Time pedals are easier to clip into and release from compared the Equip Pro models. The Impacts still provide a wide and stable platform--none of the "I'm pedaling on a walnut" feeling. These are the best Time Pedals I have used. Now I need to get additional cleats for back-up and my other shoe.
Thanks - will try and get a pair..Iwannapodiumgirl

I too have only used Time Equip, save three weeks of Look when I borrowed a friends bike. If they are easier to clip in and out, yet retain the float and feel of the Equip, I gotta get me some!
They should sell well...Lance uses them!LC

They do seem to offer all the advantages of Look, without the disadvantages of being heavy and high Profile of the Look design. 3 deg float seems perfect for me too. Hmm, guess I talked myself into it!

Someone please give some disavantages before I spend more money.

The Time impact pedals and cleats are not compatable with the older Time pedals or cleats.--You need to look overseas to find Time pedals at decent cost.
