By combining the comfort and low weight of the Alpe d’Huez 21 with the security of disc brakes, the TIME Alpe d’Huez 21 Disc can offer both a race-ready performance and all-weather reliability that will make it your go-to bike for all occasions.
Not insignificantly, the TIME Alpe d’Huez 21 Disc offers all these advantages at a very friendly price point, since we wanted to make certain that the ultimate TIME experience could be much more accessible. Building off the best, we have taken a lot of inspiration from the Alpe d’Huez 01 with disc brakes to ensure that the ride quality and performance matches. But we also wanted to enhance the feeling of comfort, so we changed the recipe slightly.
Thanks to the fact that we have total control over all aspects of our European production, we have chosen to weave the material that makes up the frame emphasizing the high resistance carbon and Basalt, while using less of the stiffer high modulus carbon found primarily in the Alpe d’Huez 01. This specific combination marginally increases the weight of the frame but greatly enhances the vertical compliance without sacrificing torsional stiffness, and consequently the overall comfort.
