Alpe d'Huez 21
To make lightweight performance more versatile and accessible, we 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.
Is It Your Time?
The Alpe d’Huez 21 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.
