Alpe d'Huez is more than a climb in Le Tour. Helicopters, police escorts, blue smoke, screaming face-painters and a crowd of 300,000 cycling fans guarantee that every visit to this legendary summit will be crowned forever in glory. It's this unmistakable marriage of history, spectacle, colossal effort, sportsmanship and beauty that is woven into every Alpe d'Huez frame TIME make. To ride the new TIME Alpe d'Huez disc is to enjoy something that eludes description, that can't be duplicated by any other bike. This is the Ultimate Road Bike.
PREMIUM QUALITY - Resin Transfer Moulding is the best way to minimize defects in the frame structure. By laying up dry fibers and then injecting resin at high pressure between rigid external AND internal molds, 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.
Frame material - BCS carbon fibre enhanced with Vectran and Dyneema fibers.
