Product Description


When riding long and hard, it’s important to be comfortable. Feeling focused on the hammering itself, rather than getting jackhammered by the saddle or worried about the front wheel going in a straight line is the way to go farther faster and what Time puts their thinking in. The Izon frameset is an aggressive Gran Fondo bike that can double as a racer. It is the center, the heart, of the Time lineup. It’s a bike designed for the long haul, One that is stiff, comfortable, light, climbs well, descends well. 

Time bases their geometry on the belief that a ride where the cyclist feels comfortable and in control is the bike that the cyclist will pedal the hardest. They design their bikes with Grand Tour distances in mind, something everyone can get on and pedal all day every day and still feel ready to ride the drops.

Not only does the geometry serve this purpose but the tubeset as well. Time weaves their own carbon-fiber tubes, forms them around wax mandrels, and creates the shapes via Resin Transfer Molding (RTM), all in an effort to precisely control the ride properties. The effort can be noticed in the way you don’t notice it on a ride. The tube shapes vary over their length to dial in what the frame can resist. The top and down tubes flatten as they travel back from the head tube, which hides a 1 1/8” to 1 1/4” steerer, to give vertically and resist laterally. The seat tube starts round at the top and flattens front to back at the BB30 bottom bracket. The seat stays are flattened and swept for vertical comfort as well. The frame is basically constructed as a front end and a rear end. Besides being better able to control stiffness and compliance with this method, the frame is also more crash-worthy. The frame is covered by a lifetime warranty, and if any of the rear triangle gets damaged, Time can remove it and replace it.

Weight for the frame, fork, seatpost, clamp, and headset is 1440g in the Small, including paint.

Being a bike of the moment, the frame is designed to run both brake and derailleur cables internally. Derailleur cables can be electronic or mechanical. Electronic runs internally, mechanical externally. The cable stops can be removed and plugs are included. Both Campagnolo and Shimano will work. Run the battery inside the seatpost for Shimano, seat tube for Campy.

The included seatpost is carbon-fiber and the clamp works with both carbon and metal rails. The headset is from Time, works without a star-fangled nut and comes with both a flat and 1cm tall top cap. The cap is part of a patented Time design that holds the fork in adjustment without the downward pressure of the stem. Max recommended tire width is 25mm, though most 28mm tires will fit as well.
