The Scylon is TIME’s most aerodynamic offering – a purebred racing machine based on exhaustive simulations and fluid dynamics analysis. 1050g of powerful shaping is optimized to slip through the air while relentlessly transmitting every watt to the road. The agony of a fast, windy breakaway cannot be reduced, thankfully the sprint will come a few seconds sooner aboard this weapon. A carbon layup that blends Vectran© fibres with high-strength and high-modulus carbon balances performance with the necessary strength and damping needed for all-out efforts.
Is It Your Time?
The Scylon rider is a strong athlete who wants a bike that will reward input to the pedals above all, while providing any aerodynamic advantage possible. The high-tech, stylish shaping of Scylon announce this rider means business – whether sprinting for the line or relaxing mid-ride with an espresso.
Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) - Resin Transfer Moulding is the best way to minimize defects in the frame structure. By laying up dry fibres and then injecting resin at high pressure between rigid external AND internal moulds, air pockets and voids are eliminated. Unlike the industry-standard prepreg layup and air bag moulding, RTM quality is uniform and consistent yielding a beautiful near-finished product. While the RTM process is ubiquitous in aerospace and high-end automotive applications, it’s almost unheard of in cycling and your TIME is unique.
Braded Carbon Structure (BCS) - Braided Carbon Structure is the weaving of dry fibres into complex bi-directional ‘socks.’ These tubes of fibre are easy to tune with different materials – TIME currently choses from 16 filaments to perfectly tailor our layups. This process also allows something that is unheard of in the cycling world; continuous fibres that run the full length of a structure. With standard prepreg layup, fibres end where the sheets do, creating inherent weaknesses. BCS is the way we’ve always made our products and we’re the one of the only bike manufacturers doing it.
Aktiv Fork (Optional) - Specially designed by TIME using proven vibration reduction engineering methods, the AKTIV Fork conceals an innovative tuned mass damper that neutralizes road noise before it travels to your hands and arms. Unlike polymer inserts or springs, AKTIV is incredibly light and sleek, providing real anti-fatigue benefits with a minimal weight penalty.
