New Time VRS Fluidity Endurance Road Bike, Their First “Comfort” Bike

first_imgTime’s new VRS Fluidity road bike is their first comfort frame, and it’s nothing if not unique.From a purely aesthetic point of view, it clashes with the notion of an endurance / comfort bike. The tubes are angular, suggesting a solid build, and there’s an integrated seatmast…something we’ve only ever seen on pure race bikes. Until now.The VRS Fluidity is constructed with Vectran fibers in the main frame, seatstays and fork to reduce vibration. The geometry is new with 15 – 25mm higher headtubes and thinner, curved seatstays. The integrated seatmast is called the Translink seat tube, and it offers a bit of vertical flex to take the edge off bumps. It also gets a new full carbon headtube with no alloy headset races that use pressed in bearings, Time’s first frame with this feature but something that’s likely to move across the line in the future. Weight savings is ~10g.A separate Di2 frame will also be available. Frameset (with fork and HS) will retail for €3345 or €3,845 for Di2. All have BB30 bottom brackets.last_img read more
