    History:
    Circa 2005 I bought my first pair of clip in pedals after getting my ass kicked DH racing at Southridge USA on flats. I was a late bloomer and might of even had toe clips on my hardtail XC bike at this time :). So I went to the Bike co in Lake Forest and asked for "the best DH racing clipless pedals and shoes" I left with a pair of Addidas Hematoma shoes (best DH shoe ever) and a pair of TIME Z DH4 pedals. I went the next day early AM before work and tested them at Aliso woods, immediately loving the confidence down rock-it. 2 days later I was DH racing with clipless pedals with only about 2 hours of practice time going clipless. I did not die, and never looked back.

    Later I used Cranks brothers Candy and acids on my AM bike. But I still enjoyed the seriousness of the time z DH4 spring clip and sturdy platform. The float was good also, so I could point my toes and turn from my hips no problem.

    These were $99 and 532 grams/pair in 2005 and I bashed the absolute Sh!t out of them on rocks over and over and never broke or needed to service them. One pair I bashed enough to severely deform the platform, but the spindle stayed true and I hammerd the platform out and kept riding.

    Fast forward to mid 2016.
    I pop on the new model, time DH4, they are $99 and 238grams/pair
    After riding a few months I am 100% happy. Stable platform, float is good. The springs feel stronger than Crank Bros, but release is just as easy. I am heavy, and these hold up without and maintenance. They may not be as sexy as CB Mallets, but I like riding with them and the performance is unmatched.

    You can check out the lighter Versons from TIME also.

    My wife recently went from Shimano SPD pedals to time mx4's and commented immediately that her feet felt more comfortable.
