The TIME Fluidity frameset weaves more Vectran (TIME’s proprietary dampening material) into the carbon lay-up enhancing the ride quality of the bike. Plus, the geometry of the Fluidity features a 15-25 mm taller head tube than the more aggressive frames such as the TIME Izon. In addition, the rear triangle of the frame has slightly more curved seatstays providing even further dampening.
TIME is the only bicycle manufacturer to master RTM technology (Resin Transfer Molding) which consists of producing its own plaits from pre-selected fibers: carbon, kevlar, vectran, etc. In addition to their RTM technology, TIME is also unique in that they weave their own tubing. While most bicycle manufacturers buy flat sheets of pre-impregnated carbon fabric which is then molded into tubing, TIME is able to weave their own tubes according to their own specifications. This allows TIME to precisely deliver tubing that meets their exact ride characteristics. TIME is unique because every model is built 100% by hand and 100% in France with unmatched quality. A TIME will last a lifetime which is why they back up their frames with a lifetime warranty. The French really do know cycling.
