C:Time Dura Ace Di2

The professional road cyclist Florian Nowak of Velomotion, has tested the Time Trial weapon of Corratec namely C:Time. Read here his conclusion:

The Frame

The frame is the fitting of each time machine. The Corratec C:Time impresses with its exceptional weight. In addition there is a competition oriented geometry and sporty aerodynamics. The Time Trial Machine is produced with the so called EPS technology, which aims at a lighter and stiffer frame. The framework is compliant with the UCI regulations, which is especially valuable for athletes.


The C: Time has been tested with the electronic Dura Ace Di2 and is also available at the retailer. Shimano's electronic gear shift operates reliably. In addition to its outstanding performance and light weight, the Di2 buttons were able to be mounted on the brakes, saving valuable seconds in the fight against the clock. Furtermore the customers can also choose the Ultegra Di2 and the 105 series instead of the Dura Ace Di2. The crankset is fitted with a gear ratio of 55/42 teeth and offers optimum propulsion for fast sections. An absolute special feature is the inhouse disc rear wheel, which is supplied as standard with the top version. Nowadays it can not be taken for granted that a manufacturer supplies selfmade disc wheels. Therefore, this package is particularly interesting for ambitious athletes. The brakes are aerodynamically integrated into the frame. Furthermore they are very easy to adjust and have a top breaking point.

On the road

The C: Time is a lightweight under the time trial bikes, with a very stiff frame and a decent contest geometry. These properties help the C: Time to an awesome propulsion. The bike has it´s strength particularly in flat, fast sections. Additionally the electrically driven Dura Ace Di2 combined with the funcional brakes contributes to the top performance of the bike. Another advantage is the fast installation respectively removal of the rear wheel disc. Thanks to the special frame geometry, the quick release can be installed and removed as on a normal road bike. This is especially valuable in racing, as it is simply more convenient and quicker.


Tester Florian Nowak of Velomotion came to the following conclusion: "The Corratec C-Time is a real highspeed bike. The light and aerodynamic frame combined with the top features of the Dura-Ace Di2 and rear disc wheel is absolutely impressive."
