Braiding

TIME’s unique « made in France » expertise

To offer its users unique performances, Time has developed a unique braiding process. This process, which consists in interlacing different or identical fibres (Carbon, Vectran, Kevlar), forms a braid («sock») which will allow the structure of the future bike to be constructed layer by layer.
Thanks to this unique innovation, it is possible to adapt the characteristics of the frame to the sensations sought on the bike: so each type of sports use has its own frame. For instance, the Vectran fibre boasts a high vibration absorption capacity, while the carbon fibre is lighter and more rigid. No other technology offers such an extensive selection and precision in the location of the different fibres used. By choosing to braid its fibres, Time has developed a catalogue of more than 100 different braids.
