Stay Ahead of Time
The new Timemachine Disc is the ultimate triathlon machine, the most refined expression of pure aerodynamic performance featuring cutting-edge disc brake technology. It is a bike designed for progressive triathletes seeking the perfect synthesis of drag-defying aerodynamics, sublime handling and world-traveler functionality. Extended research enabled us to scope out and achieve extraordinary aerodynamics through innovative disc brake integration for improved handling and a confident ride on the most technically demanding courses. A standout feature, the integrated caliper covers optimize airflow as it hits the bike, seamlessly woven into the frame design to achieve the class-leading integration that is the foundation of the Timemachine’s aero prowess. Along with an extensive rider positioning system and state-of-the-art component integration, the Timemachine Disc is the must-have bike for middle and long-distance triathlons or time trials.
Timemachine DISC HOT SPOTS
We thoroughly researched the airflows created by calipers and rotors through CFD modeling in order to evaluate their impact the on aerodynamic performance. We soon realized that disc brakes and rotors can greatly impact aerodynamic performance when no specific solutions are adopted.
Airflow detachment: rim brake vs disc brake without aerodynamic covers
We designed aerodynamic caliper covers to optimize the airflow around the disc brake calipers and minimize the impact on aerodynamic performance. The result is the aerodynamic performance of our Timemachine with the benefits functional integration of disc brake technology.

subA - Aerodynamic Form
The newly revised SubA concept summarizes our aerodynamic advantages: 3:1 tubes with truncated profiles, crosswind-stable tube shapes, hinge-fork design, a super-lean frontal area and maximum integration overall. Combined with our Position-to-Perform (P2P) rider-position system, this machine is all about free speed - for long course triathlon, time trials or solo efforts in wind-swept terrain.
