The Alpe d’Huez 01 is more than a match for its namesake climb clinging to the slopes above the Bourg d’Oisans valley. To tackle mythical ascents everywhere, we’ve created a legendary bicycle – at under 900g, the Alpe d’Huez 01 is the lightest frame TIME has produced. A simple look at the scale, however, doesn’t reveal the agility and comfort of this remarkable machine. By blending Vectran© fiber with high-strength and high-modulus carbon, we’ve orchestrated the perfect balance of mass, rigidity and deflection – the key ingredients for a climbing virtuoso.
Time uses a material called Vectran in combination with carbon fibers, to achieve a stiff but compliant ride behavior. The Racingdrive geometry has a lower head tube to give the rider an aggressive aero position. The stability of the front wheel is improved by the integrated Quickset, a system with an independent bracket for the stem to allow its adjustments without touching the headset.
