2022 TIME Bicycles Alpe d'Hues 21 Disc Brake Frameset with AKTIV Fork
Is It Your Time?
The TIME Alpe d’Huez 21 has been named after the famous hairpin bend of the iconic mountain. All TIME Bicycle Framesets are entirely made in Europe from beginning to end!
A TIME Alpe d'Huez rider has learned that a smooth bike is often the fastest bike, and weight is just one factor when choosing a bike tough enough to handle the rigors of daily use.
This rider is looking for a tool that excels on every ride, over any course profile, eschewing the luxuries of fresh tarmac and spotless handlebar tape.
To make lightweight performance more accessible, TIME created the Alpe d’Huez 21. Instead of the Vectran© fibers used in the Alpe d’Huez 01, this frame blends Basalt filaments with a smaller proportion of high-modulus carbon and a greater amount of high-strength carbon.
The modified layup targets comfort and smooths the ride while retaining a pleasantly refined acceleration and impeccable handling.
If the Alpe d’Huez 01 is our two-seat supercar, the Alpe d’Huez 21 is a V10 performance sedan.
The TIME Aktiv Fork
Specially designed by TIME using proven vibration reduction engineering techniques similar to those used in F1 and automotive designs, the AKTIV Fork conceals an innovative tuned mass damper that neutralizes a measure of road noise before it travels to your hands and arms.
It is tuned for vibrations between 25 and 50Hz, such as those felt on rough chip seal pavement. cause a corresponding counter-movement of the small weight concealed inside the fork leg that cancels some of the input.
Unlike polymer inserts or springs, AKTIV does not interfere with the bike’s handling or cause a vague feeling at the bars. AKTIV is incredibly light and sleek, providing real anti-fatigue benefits with a minimal weight penalty. It’s easy to see how even this small increase in comfort aboard your TIME can lead to a better experience on the road.
