stiffness meet. The Alpe d'Huez 21 is a direct descendant of the Alpe d'Huez 01. It represents the ideal climbing bike for cyclists in search of comfort and versatility in hilly landscapes.
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 feel liveliness, responsiveness and power when pedalling. To achieve these characteristics, we have been working with high modulus fibres, 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.
Performance and comfort
We always considered that performance and comfort are inseparable. 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.
