The first practical clipless pedal was the Look, invented by Jean Beyl. Those early 1980s pedals were immensely popular, but they did not allow the foot to rotate, or "float". Some riders, especially if their cleats were incorrectly mounted, suffered knee problems.

It was Beyl who discovered that allowing the foot to rotate a bit through the stroke both improved performance and reduced knee injuries. Beyl was unable to convince Look to change their pedal design to allow the foot to float to its natural orientation throughout the stroke. Beyl knew he was right and left Look in the late 1980s to start his own firm, "Time Sport".

His Time pedals with both rotational and lateral float were a hit. Soon many top pros switched from Look to Time, including Greg LeMond. Look eventually followed suit with their own cleat that allowed the rider's foot to float.

The Time Sprint sole is both Look 3-bolt and Time TBT cleat compatible.
