M2Racer Pedals ... lightest ever? ... anyone try them?Tahoe Gator

Supergo is now selling the M2Racer ORM Ti pedals ($209). They weigh 150 grams, and is both pedals and both cleats weigh a total of 150g! For someone who rides Time ATAC mtb pedals on my road bike (which my knees love plus i can have one pair of shoes and walk around in them), this could be the impetus for road shoes and pedals ... but, has anyone tried them? Light doesn't mean much if they do not perform.

Haven't tried them, but can you imagine being in a big pileup and landing on one of those? I wonder if they'll be legal for racing.

I have a teammate who is trying them out right now. He says the float is very much like a Time Equipe. I have noticed him have a couple of accidental releases, and that is a little scary.

I use Time Equipe as well, but I don't think I would like these pedals. They seem like they would not support the foot very well.

I am riding on speedplays right now.
I use times moutian bike pedals and really like them.
I was thinking about getting a more solid feeling
road bike pedal.
have you ever used speedplays road pedal?
how do they feel compared to time pedals?
I do like the double sided entry that speedplay has.
Are the time pedals hard to clip in to?
do times mountain and road pedals feel simalar?

I like Time pedals. I have used the Equipe models for the past 7 years. I tried Speedplay prior to that, and I did not like them. The main difference between the two is the float sensation. Speedplay is free float, whereas Time has float against a spring. I found my feet were very unstable using Speedplay. The Time pedals also have a larger contact surface, and I prefer it for lateral stability of the foot. In terms of clipping in, every pedal system has its own quirks. Once you ride a new pedal a few times it all becomes natural. I would say that Time are no harder to clip into than Look, Speedplay, or SPD.

Time has replaced the Equipe line with its new Impact pedals. Most people report the new system feels much like the old system. I have not tried it out yet, but I am considering making the switch.
