Absolutely a shop favourite! Gabe's been riding Time mountain pedals exclusively for 20+ years. These work equally well on gravel and mountain bikes. The cleats shed mud easily after putting a foot into mud and then trying to cram them back into the pedals, no little corners to get sand & gravel stuck in like Shimano cleats. Easy to get in & out of and trouble-free. The ATAC cleats also have an adjustable release angle by flipping the cleats from left to right shoes.
