At the upper echelons of the sport there really is no substitute for a good single, even if you do have to glue it on. Hand-made latex singles might only last a handful of kilometres and cost hundreds of dollars, but they are demonstrably faster against the clock.

Top Gear: Time XPRESSO Pedals

Time claim their new Xpresso pedal system is the “fastest pedal system in the world”. Moving from their successful iClic pedals, the Xpresso uses the same pre-open clipless system for easier cleat engagement. Instead of metal springs they use a carbon flexion blade, which makes them extremely light. The top of the range Xpresso 12, which is a blend of carbon and titanium, weighs just 155g per pair. There are four models in the Australian range, with varying blends of carbon, ti, polymer and steel. Each has automatic pre-opening of engagement mechanism, setting of Q-factor, minimal distance from sole to axle, angular float (+/-5°) and lateral float (2.5mm) and a 15 degree release angle.

Prices: Xpresso 2 $69.95

Xpresso 6 $139.95

8 Carbon $214.96

12 $379.95

Cleats $34.95
