Alpe d'Huez Rim Brake
This exceptional bike is more than a match for its namesake climb clinging to the slopes above the Bourg-d'Oisans valley. To tackle mythical ascents everywhere, we've created a legendary bicycle at under 900g. The Alpe d'Huez Rim Brake version is the lightest frame TIME has produced. A simple look at the scale, however, doesn't‚ reveal the agility and comfort of this remarkable machine. By blending Vectran® fiber with high-strength and high-modulus carbon, we've orchestrated the perfect balance of mass, rigidity, and deflection – the key ingredients for a climbing virtuoso.
