Riders that spend the majority of their time on dirt will appreciate the volume and traction offered by a 45c tire. Gravel-oriented frames achieve the necessary tire clearance by thinning and lengthening the seatstays and chainstays, and widening the opening in the fork legs. The resulting increase in frame deflection paired with the vibration absorption and traction from larger tires make light work of rough roads even as they render the ADHX 45 less suited to asphalt.


A 45c tire has roughly three times the volume of a 28c tire and about 65% more than a 38c version. More volume allows lower air pressures and better traction, increased comfort and more stability. Additionally, the more aggressive tread patterns available in larger sizes further contribute to grip on uncertain terrain. It might seem that any bike would ben - efit from larger tires and this is true to an extent. But consider that a large tire weighs a great deal more than a small - er one and the taller sidewalls deflect more, contributing to a vague feeling over hard surfaces. Additionally, drive - train compatibility is reduced as wide tires, chainrings and front derailleurs all compete for the same space.


Dyneema has been making headlines in the cycling news for a few years now, but to date very few manufacturers have been able to incorporate this advanced material in their products. Most brands are restricted to common prepreg sheets offered by large carbon suppliers, and the high temperatures used for curing prepreg frames is above the recommended maximum for Dyneema fibers. The tight profitability of commodities dictates that unique or expensive products that are not in wide demand are simply not worth producing. TIME is different. Because we weave our own braided carbon structures (BCS) we have been able to test strands of sustainable Bio-Based Dyneema fibres since they first became available from DSM. Additionally, the lower resin temperature of the RTM injection process is well within the recommended range.

The included DEDA S-DCR headset is compatible with standard stems and handlebars for semi-integrated setup or add a full DCR headset cover/stem/bar available from DEDA to finish your TIME with fully-integrated cables and brake hoses.


With the included TIME Derailleur Mount Cover, your 1X setup will look as slick and finished as the rest of your bike. Full compatibility with single and double–ring drivetrains doesn’t mean making a visual compromise.


With 20x the fatigue life of steel or alloy, TIME use forged carbon where others spec heavier aluminum parts. A 60% fiber content allows drilling and threading without cracking, processes that are much more challenging with prepreg construction.



Bio-Based Dyneema® is Lighter, Stronger and Smarter. Because TIME weave their own braided carbon structures (BCS), they have been able to add a hybrid Carbon/Bio-Based Dyneema® layer that increases strength in the structure without compromising stiffness or weight.


Braided Carbon Structure is the weaving of dry fibers into complex bi-directional ‘socks.’ These tubes of fiber are easy to tune with different materials. BCS also allows something that is unheard of in the cycling world; continuous fibers that run the full length of a structure.


Resin Transfer Moulding is the best way to mould carbon. By laying up dry fibers and then injecting resin at high pressure between rigid external & internal moulds, air pockets and voids are eliminated. Unlike prepreg air bag moulding, RTM quality is uniform and consistent.
