The TIME Alpe d'Huez 01 Aktiv frameset eschews trends to create a road bike that handles and feels better than nearly any other bike on the market.

Highlights


Product Description

The TIME Alpe d’Huez 01 Aktiv frameset makes the base for some of the best road bikes available at any price. Its unique RTM carbon layup, industry-exclusive Aktiv carbon fork, and incredible riding dynamics make for a package that is engaging and fast.

How does the Alpe d’Huez 01 Aktiv frameset achieve its vaunted ride quality? The secret is skin deep. TIME starts by using their carbon fiber weave made in-house, from their own looms. They use over 7300 total threads which total nearly three km in length. Three percent of the Alpe d’Huez fibers are Vectran, a material more commonly found in tires, which TIME says adds vibration absorption to a frame. They then use their Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) build process, which consists of injecting resin under pressure into a mold to obtain a solid homogeneous structure of the future frame. In this day and age when everything is constructed in Asia, a TIME bike stands alone being 100% built by hand and 100% built in France.

Add in the Aktiv fork, which features a vibration damper inside of the fork which oscillates within the fork to reduce vibrations transmitted to the rest of the bike. All in, TIME claims a road vibration reduction of 30% compared to a standard Alpe d’Huez 01 for greater confidence on descents.
