The Mavic Crossride XL pedals may just be the perfect pedals for getting newbies on clips. Of course, the ultra predictable ATAC mechanism makes them ideal for certified rippers as well. The gigantic platform makes clipping in a breeze, and the single setting release tension keeps you secure, while keeping it easy to get out when things turn hairy. In order to ride with complete confidence, you need pedals that are both secure, and quick to disengage when the time comes. And as you probably know, the ATAC interface checks off both boxes with ease. The parallel bars that hold the cleat in place allow for 2. 5mm of lateral float. That works in conjunction with 10 degrees of angular float, which keeps your knees tracking smoothly, and pain free. By flipping the cleats, you're able to achieve a generous 17 degree release angle, or a more conservative 13 degree angle. The size of the platform may have you thinking that the Crossride XLs are tanks, but that's just not the case. The durable composite body keeps the weight to a very reasonable 400g, while retaining the durability needed to shrug off all but the hardest rock strikes. That's exactly the same weight as the Crossroc XL, with the difference being that the Crossroc has three spring tension settings. That means that the Crossrides are lacking the higher tension setting that experienced riders may prefer, but their predictable action makes them ideal for those who want the security of clips, without the stress of worrying if they'll be able to free their feet. The Mavic Crossride XL Pedals are available in one size, and in the color Black.
