Time Sport International was started in 1987 by Jean Beyl, formerly of Look, and his son-in-law Roland Cattin, in Isère, France. Beyl was also the founder of Look, maker of the first truly successful clipless pedal. It was Beyl who understood that modern clipless pedals (including his own Look products) did not allow the foot to rotate laterally through the pedal stroke and that this could cause tendinitis.

The cleats used on quill pedals with toe clips and straps usually had enough slop to allow the foot to follow its natural tendency to twist a bit on the pedal. But the extraordinarily popular Look clipless pedals did not have that rotational freedom, now called "float". For those riders who needed float (and not all riders do), using a pedal that locked the foot in one rotational position caused knee and ankle problems.

Beyl could not convince Look's management to solve this problem and left the company to form Time with Cattin.

In 1988 Time introduced the TBT pedal. The TBT had float with a spring mechanism that would tend to re-center the foot. The pedal was a hit. Soon thereafter, Look introduced cleats that also had float. Now all high-end clipless pedals have some sort of float availability.

Time also makes excellent shoes and we have more than a few in stock. You can find them here.

In 1993 Time branched out to carbon-fiber frames and forks, which are also highly regarded and have been used to great success in professional racing.
