Where lightness and stiffness meet. The Alpe d'Huez 21 is a direct descendant of the Alpe d'Huez 01. It representes the ideal climbing bike for cyclists in search of comfort and versatility in hilly landscapes.
 
Stiffness
TIME worked on the lightness of the Alpe d'Huez bike, while improving the stiffness characteristics. This gives more than 25% on the stiffness/weight ratio compared to its predecessor, Izon. You will feels liveliness, responsiveness and power when pedaling. To achieve these characteristics, we have been working with high modulus fibers, a BB386 bottom bracket and a directlink seat tube to allows better energy transfer. The sloping geometry of the frame has been adapted for performance in the mountains. The Alpe d'Huez is the ideal bike for this type of terrain, responsive on the climb and precise on the descent. 
 
3km of fibers to build a Time bike
Thanks to our RTM and braiding of carbon fibers technologies, we have a very wide choice of different braids. All our braids have very precise mechanical characteristics. They come from many studies, especially on the choice of fibers used for their manufacture. This results in unique sensations perceived during the pedaling movement.
 
7300 carbon braids are needed to make a TIME frame. We have a wide choice in the type of wire used and a very high precision in the positioning of the son on the frame. We choose exactly what type of wire for which braid and which part of the frame. We thus obtain very precise mechanical characteristics according to our expectations.
 
73 braids are used for the manufacture of the frame. The structure is thus homogeneous and the fibers remain continuous on the structure. This results in a better transfer of mechanical properties.
 
Performance and comfort
We always considered that performance and comfort are inseperable. The comfort allows a rider to be more powerful, over a long period of time. This belies is why TIME is constantly developing its innovations to bring more comfort every day. 
 
About Time
TIME Sport International is a French manufacturer of bicycles and cycling equipment, including bicycle frames, cycling shoes, clipless bicycle pedals, cranksets, and gloves. Founded in 1987 by Roland Cattin, TIME creates, manufactures and distributes highly technical bicycle products. TIME history began with a clipless bicycle pedal system designed to accommodate the biomechanical constraints of the rider. In 1993, TIME began to diversify with carbon composite frames using Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) technology. TIME weaves its own custom tubular carbon layers in its RTM factory in Vaulx-Milieu France, outside of Lyon. This gives TIME’s engineers control of the technical characteristics of each carbon layer, as well as freedom of shape of the frame component parts. TIME products gained fame in the early 1990s, when their pedals were used by multiple Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain. This was a major change for the field, in which LOOK had been the most notable brand until then. Today, TIME is one of the leading brands of carbon fiber racing bicycle frames and forks.
