Where lightness and stiffness meet. The new Alpe d'Huez bike is the lightest bike that TIME has ever created. But it is also competitively stiff for power efficiency as well as those surprise uphill attacks, responsive and precise for mountain descents and comfortable for long days in the saddle.
Lightness Alpe d'Huez 01 is the lightest bike that TIME has ever developed: -8,6% less than its predecessor, the Izon. To achieve this, we have developed a brand new optimised structure. The carbon braids, developed according to the desired mechanical characteristics allowed for the removal of the finishing fabric. These braids are meticulously positioned on the frame and remain apparent in the finished frame. A new thinner and lighter seat was also developed to match this new frame.
Stiffness TIME worked on the lightness of the Alpe d'Huez bike, while improving the stiffness characteristics. This gives more than 25% on the stiffness/weight ratio compared to its predecessor, Izon. You will feel liveliness, responsiveness and power when pedalling. To achieve these characteristics, we have been working with high modulus fibres, a BB386 bottom bracket and a direct link seat tube to allows better energy transfer. The sloping geometry of the frame has been adapted for performance in the mountains. The Alpe d'Huez is the ideal bike for this type of terrain, responsive on the climb and precise on the descent.
Performance and comfort We always considered that performance and comfort are inseparable. The comfort allows a rider to be more powerful, over a long period of time. TIME is constantly developing its innovations to bring more comfort every day.

About The Brand
TIME design, develop and assemble their products in France, thanks to the unique knowledge and expertise of their teams. Made by hand, the framesets & parts TIME create are exceptional and unique.
At TIME, they have always considered that performance and comfort are inseparable. Each innovation on their products are created toward this equation. That’s why their concept of bioperformance was born: to offer products completely adapted to the morphology of cyclists, improving pedalling efficiency, turning more effort into more speed.
