CATEGORY HIGHLIGHTS

Both frame-platforms have the identical Metron TT aero cockpit, which is a unique co-development in between MERIDA and Vision. It is as a binding-part of the TIME WARP’s total bike concept and the main reason that we were able to shape off 400 grams in total weight from the predecessor’s WARP TT frame-kit.

We have increased the aerodynamic performance once again by optimising tube shapes even further and integrate exposed cables into the overall frame design. The aerodynamic improvement leads to wattage savings of a further 9 Watts.

The TIME WARP offers outstanding flexibility through the hugely adjustable handlebar and seat post, allowing the rider to adjust the riding position to suit the discipline and course profile.

Besides the aerodynamic performance, we have also reduced the weight through a new improved and optimised carbon fibre layup. The overall weight saving is 400 g in comparison to its predecessor.

The main difference in between the TT (time trial) and TRI (triathlon) frames is a differently designed upper-area of head tube and the way the carbon stem of the one-piece cockpit is integrated into the frame. This elongated head tube allows for a slightly more upright and therefore comfortable riding position, ideal for the long distances covered in triathlon events.

Technologies

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

IMAGE

DOWN TUBE EXIT

Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

IMAGE

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

IMAGE

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

IMAGE

NACA FASTBACK PROFILE

The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CLAMP

Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to Formula 1: apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.

IMAGE

FLIP FLOP HEAD

Aero bikes deliver the best possible aerodynamics, but superb wind-tunnel performance data is useless if the rider can‘t get into the correct position. The ‘Flip Flop’ head allows seat angles to be optimised for comfort.

IMAGE

INTERNAL BLOCK

First introduced in our 2015 NINETY-SIX, the new version of the 'Internal Block' is incorporated directly in the frame and prevents the fork crown from hitting the frame in case of a crash or an extreme steering angle. As an extra protection, there are additional rubber bumpers on the frame to avoid any frame damage from the fork crown.
