Highlights


Product Description

We’ve sold TIME 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 2019 TIME Alpe d’Huez 21 AKTIV Frameset, is a must-have for anyone looking for the very best from TIME Sport.

Every TIME road bike starts life as a strand of carbon fiber, or three kilometers of fiber and 7300 fibers per frame, to be exact. They use their own Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) technology, which is weaved in-house (unlike nearly any other brand on the market) and allows engineers to engineer exactly what technical characteristics they want, down to thread count. Vectran, a material used more often in making tires, is weaved into the frame to quell road vibrations. While it is a time-intensive process (TIME approximates around 22 hours per frameset), the result is a bike that truly rides unlike anything else on the market.

The frameset weighs in at just 840g, and over 8% (~120g) lighter than the frame it replaces, the TIME Izon. TIME also claims the Alpe d’Huez frameset offers a 25% better weight-to-stiffness ratio compared to the same frame, a ratio that is actually slightly better than the TIME Scylon aero road bike. The Alpe d’Huez also offers TIME’s Directlink D-shaped carbon seat post and a more aerodynamic, two-bolt clamp, which they used to lower weight while also improve the ride quality in the saddle.

The 2019 TIME Alpe d’Huez 21 AKTIV Frameset 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.
