TIME WARP TT TEAM FRAME-KIT

 

When every fraction of a second counts, the slightest advantage can make the difference between winning and losing. Welcome to the new disc brake ready TIME WARP TT. 
Find Dealer

Yes, our new TIME WARP TT got the race-proven aerodynamics of the previous generation, but sometimes you need to look in the less obvious places for that winning edge. That’s why we’ve added disc-brake integration, greater tyre clearance and improved comfort, all while maintaining its already impressive weight and air slicing abilities. Having reliable stopping power as well as improved modulation under all weather conditions can give the race deciding edge when every split-second counts.

The switch to discs also allows tyres of up to 28 mm to be fitted, which further reduces rolling resistance and enhances grip, allowing the rider to maintain the hard-won speed. It also adds additional comfort to the offering, which isn’t something the time trial fraternity would typically focus on; however, the wider road cycling world has begun to see the advantages in reducing fatigue to maximise performance. While our TIME WARP has maintained its stiffness for perfect power transfer and acceleration, we’ve also introduced the latest version of the S-FLEX seat post that further reduces road buzz and improves comfort, all while keeping an aerodynamically optimised profile. The previous version of TIME WARP TT set new standards in weight reduction and aerodynamic improvement by dropping 400 g and reducing the drag by around 9 watts at 50 km/h. For the fourth generation of the bike, we’ve kept that impressively low weight the same despite the introduction of the higher overall system weight of disc brakes and the related frame alterations. We’ve also included cockpit compatibility with the latest VISION extensions, fully integrated cable routing for brake and shifting cables, easy cockpit adjustability for perfect rider positioning and proven TT geometry. The TIME WARP TT will be available as a frame kit only and includes frame, fork, seat post, headset and the VISION aero base-bar METRON TT.

To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

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

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.

INTERNAL CLAMP

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.
