Time realized a brand new frame for Cofidis and Bouygues Telecom Pro Tour teams. Called VXRS Ulteam Worldstar, this snow white frame was unveiled at the Time Megève Mont-Blanc (what a coincidence!). The carbon and Vectran fibres are mixed and optimized to provide stiffness and compliance for long rides. Add to this mix an attractive look, which
makes Angelina Jolie green with envy, and you get an explosive cocktail!
The frame is slightly sloping, the seatpost is still integrated, like the current VXRS. Steering tube diameter is 1"1/4 at the bottom and 1"1/8 on top.
915g the frame. Available from October in 7 sizes

Beside this jewel, Time revealed three new frames plus an evolution. The high-range Edge Racer evoluates with a new Translink version: integrated seatpost. Some extra stiffness is expected.
A cross frame is unveiled. It is designed specifically for a better comfort: it absorbs the vibrations thanks to the Kevlar and Vibraser fibres. The seatpost is integrated too.
The Edge Pulse replaces the Edge First that definitely diseappears. This frame is the most affordable in the Edge range. It is still made in France.
The Speeder is a 12K carbon fibre frame made in China according to Time standards and quality controls. It is a low cost frame that includes a Quickset headset.
