ADHX 45

Full On Gravel Slayer

The ADHX 45 is our full on gravel bike with plenty of clearance for rowdy off-road fun. The ADHX 45 has 430mm chainstays and can fit a 45c tire. This is the bike for you if you want to get lost on the back roads.

Available in 7 colors.

WHERE WILL YOU GO?

Is there a perfect one-bike solution? That depends on your perspective as a rider. Understanding where you’d like to ride most often is worthy of much consideration.

DETERMINING THE SWEET SPOT

Selecting the bike that is designed for your rides will yield the most 'smiles per mile.' If rougher gravel roads only feature occasionally, you'll enjoy the improved handling and road feel of the ADHX. If you primarily ride pavement, you might not need a 'gravel' bike at all – It's amazing what can be ridden quickly and comfortably aboard the Alpe d'Huez sporting a supple 28c tire. If you want to get lost on unimproved back roads and could almost justify a mountain bike, the capabilities of the ADHX 45 could be perfect.

VOLUME, TRACTION & CONTROL

A 45c tire has roughly three times the volume of a 28c tire and about 65% more than a 38c version. More volume allows lower air pressures and better traction, increased comfort and more stability. Additionally, the more aggressive tread patterns  available in larger sizes further contribute to grip on uncertain terrain.

BIGGER IS BETTER - BUT NOT ALWAYS

It might seem that any bike would benefit from larger tires and this is true to an extent. But consider that a large tire weighs a great deal more than a smaller one and the taller sidewalls deflect more, contributing to a vague feeling over hard surfaces. Additionally, drivetrain compatibility is reduced as wide tires, chainrings and front derailleurs all compete for the same space.

GRAVEL GEOMETRY HIGHLIGHTS

ADHX 45 is different from the ADHX in a few key dimensions. These changes allow for larger tires and impart additional stability.

ADHX 45 - FEATURES

DEDA DCR

 The included DEDA S-DCR headset is compatible with standard stems and handlebars for semi-integrated setup or add a full DCR headset cover/stem/bar available from DEDA to finish your TIME with fully-integrated cables and brake hoses.

1X Derailleur cover

With the included TIME Derailleur Mount Cover, your 1X setup will look as slick and finished as the rest of your bike. Full compatibility with single and double–ring drivetrains doesn’t mean making a visual compromise.

FORGED CARBON

With 20x the fatigue life of steel or alloy, we use forged carbon where others spec heavier aluminum parts. A 60% fiber content allows drilling and threading without cracking, processes that are much more challenging with prepreg construction.

TOP TUBE MOUNT POINT

Frame storage is great, but fingertip access while riding is better. Your ADHX is compatible with bags or mounting systems that use a standard bottle mount.

REINFORCED STEERER

Fork steerer tubes must withstand a great deal of stress from riding and clamping forces imparted by the stem. TIME have always reinforced steerers with Kevlar or Vectran fibers to dramatically reduce the risk of total failure and separation in this critical area.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

• DEDA S DCR Headset for Semi & Fully-Integrated Cockpits

• Front and Rear Thru Axles

• Alloy Bottle Cage Bolts

• Integrated Seatpost Clamp
