Built by Speed
You’re not looking for an ordinary race bike. You are looking for the fastest road bike ever. One that is your instrument to tear away from the pack. For beating the clock, beating the competition, or simply beating your best in style. The poise and prowess of the Timemachine Road give it impetus in breakaways, rolling terrain, and bunch sprints. Inspired by all things fast, the Timemachine Road exudes speed and technology. A pure breed of sculptured design and stealthy engineering. The Timemachine Road stakes ownership of the tarmac with overarching aero integration for WorldTour-winning speeds. Aerodynamically perfected shapes, class-leading integration of the ICS Aero cockpit and the all-new Aero Module that turns hydration and storage requirements into an aerodynamic advantage; these are our key innovations to help the rider push through and keep up with the charging machine below for that bit longer. You’re not an ordinary rider and this bike is anything but ordinary. Timemachine Road, enter a new era of speed.
Timemachine ROAD Hotspots
ICS Aero Maximum Integration
ICS Aero Ergonomics
ICS Aero is a cockpit system designed to provide the most ergonomic and adjustable aero cockpit solution.
A no-compromise aerodynamic fit
Integrated Aero Cover
The minimal profile of the Aero cover optimizes the fork’s aerodynamic profile through seamlessly integration and reduces the turbulence caused by the front brake caliper.
Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC) Speed is all about performance, a compliance system designed to optimize power transfer and rolling resistance on every road surface, achieving peak speeds for extended periods of time. The carbon layup of the Timemachine Road filters road vibration through the fork and the dropped seatstays design to improve power transfer efficiency while the flattened shapes of the ICS Aero stem deliver comfort and control without affecting aerodynamic performance.
• Optimized power transfer
• Improved rolling speed
• Reduced fatigue
• Sharp and confident handling
CC Speed is a key feature of Timemachine Road, a solution built to minimize fatigue and help riders produce consistent power outputs over extended efforts.
Aerodynamic performance: track testing
We performed several track testing sessions with different rider profiles to get a comprehensive assessment of the aerodynamic performance of the Timemachine Road 01 in a controlled environment. A scientific testing protocol was defined to ensure all variables would be taken into account in order to produce a consistent set of data that would define the performance of the new Timemachine Road 01. We compared Timemachine Road 01 with Teammachine SLR01 using identical setups (including 2 water bottles), with the Timemachine Road 01 module the only differentiating factor. Over the course of 40 hours and over 1700km of track testing the new Timemachine Road 01 produced consistent and measurable power savings for all rider profiles.

Aero Module – Aerodynamics and Functionality
Real-world riding is different from the controlled environment of the track; different factors influence aerodynamic performance, from side winds to the gear that every rider carries during a ride.
During our research we realized that standard water bottle cages have significant impact on aerodynamic performance, especially with side winds. This was the inception of our vision for the Aero Module, an integrated and modular solution for hydration and storage that would improve both aerodynamic performance and functionality. This core technology sets apart Timemachine Road 01 and produces up to 18 Watts gains at 15˚ yaw angles.
