Time Bicycles ADHX Gravel Bike
“TIME’s debut gravel bike has quickly notched several victories – our ADHX (Alpe d’Huez X) is the first of its kind to incorporate Bio-Based Dyneema®, the World’s Strongest Fiber®, to build a better performing machine. It’s the first to utilize braided carbon structure (BCS) manufacturing, a TIME exclusive that outperforms traditional carbon prepreg construction in almost every way by incorporating several types of fiber into each multidirectional braid.”
“The ADHX is first in quality and tolerance control thanks to our highly accurate resin transfer moulding (RTM) process and is manufactured entirely in the EU using one of the most sustainable manufacturing processes in the industry. TIME’s first performance gravel offering is more than a cursory nod – in many ways the arrival of the ADHX makes it the clear leader in a very crowded field – with pedigree to spare, an iconic look and an attitude eager to make a splash.” – https://timebicycles.com
Bio-Based DYNEEMA® Fiber is Lighter, Stronger & Smarter
“Dyneema® fiber is 15x stronger than steel at the same weight and is so light that it floats on water. The promise of integrating Dyneema® in carbon structures has been making headlines for years now, but to date very few manufacturers have been able to incorporate the material. TIME is different–we aren’t reliant on materials availability from large carbon prepreg manufacturers. By weaving our own braided carbon structures (BCS) we have been able to test strands of sustainable Bio-Based Dyneema® fibres since they first became available from DSM. And unlike the high temperature ovens used to cure standard prepreg frames, the lower resin temperature of the RTM injection process is well within the safe temperature range for Dyneema®.”
Is It Your Time?
“ADHX is perfect for riders who want a top-performing “fast gravel” machine. Weight, stiffness, comfort and handling are cornerstones – as important as the knowledge that ADHX is technologically unique. Racers, All Road explorers and everyday riders seeking an experience off the tarmac will find ADHX checks the boxes.”

Good luck riding that in any wet conditions. I guess that could be one’s dry race day bike, while there’s a different bike in the stable for wet days.
Definitely not for everyone. I have a designated sludge bike for the nastiest of conditions.
