Where lightness and stiffness meet. The new Alpe d'Huez 01 bike is the lightest bike that TIME has ever created. But it is also competitively stiff for power efficiency as well as those surprise uphill attacks, responsive and precise for mountain descents and comfortable for long days in the saddle.

Aktiv places a low-mass metallic damper in each fork leg. Vibrations that enter the fork transfer to the damper, which oscillates at the same frequency to cancel out some of the buzz. It’s the same basic physics used to stabilize the famed Taipei 101 skyscraper against wind and seismic movement (although in that case, the damper weighs 728 tons; Time’s Aktiv system only adds about 200 grams to the fork weight).
