Highlights


Product Description

We’ve sold TIME Sport products at Contender Bicycles for years. We love their frames for their smooth ride manners, uniquely high-end build quality, and unique technologies that make their road bikes an incomparable experience. TIME’s newest bicycle in four years, the TIME Alpe d’Huez road bike, takes those quintessential characteristics and applies them to an ultralight road bike built for climbing and descending. This model, the Time Alpe d'Huez 21 AKTIV Shimano Dura-Ace, is a must-have for anyone looking for the very best from TIME Sport.

TIME has two models of the Alpe d’Huez: the 01 and 21. The Alpe d’Huez 21 is built just as any other TIME bicycle through their Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) technology, which consists of injecting resin under pressure into a mold to obtain a solid homogeneous structure of the future frame. They use over 6200 fibers in making the Alpe d’Huez 21; not as much as the 7300 of the 01, but much more than what other companies use. Rather than the more expensive and lighter Vectran, the 21s incorporate seven percent basalt in its carbon layup. It still takes 22 hours to build a frameset, a testament to TIME’s dedication to build quality.

The TIME Alpe d’Huez 21 weighs just 90g more at 930g for a frame and hardware, lighter than both the TIME Scylon and TIME Fluidity. This makes it lighter still than the outgoing TIME Izon road bike. Other differences include a conventional metal seatpost clamp that sits flush with the top tube (instead of an integrated one), a slightly different seatstay junction, and the use of TIME’s standard Quickset headset. While not as stiff as its pricier sibling, the Alpe d’Huez 21 still offers plenty of stiffness out of the saddle while still riding like a proper climber’s bike.

The TIME Alpe d'Huez 21 AKTIV Shimano Dura-Ace is an anomaly in the cycling world. It delivers on every single promise of efficiency and smoothness, and makes for one of the best framesets available today. We offer the Alpe d’Huez 21 AKTIV Frameset in six sizes (XXS to XL) in three colors: Red/White/Black, Black/White/Gray, and Matte Petrol Black.
