BMC Switzerland has built their reputation on creating high-end bicycles for the world’s fastest road and mountain racers. Their fleet of lightweight-yet-stiff carbon frames have been developed to translate pedal-power into pure speed on pavement and singletrack. Innovative ideas are thoroughly tested in Switzerland, at the BMC Impec Lab before being incorporated into the BMC line up. Positive laboratory results lead-way to real-world testing under the likes of the world tour BMC Racing Team and mountain-champion Julien Absalon. Their professional input aids in creating new bikes that are ready to ride and built to win. Going into 2017 we see proven models such as the Fourstroke mountain bike and Teammachine road bikes being joined by new favorites like the Speedfox and Speedfox Trailcrew and the highly anticipated new Roadmachine endurance road bike. With an emphasis on reduced weight and high-quality construction, BMC bikes are the performance-packed choice of serious riders.

The BMC Roadmachine

Introducing the latest in high-performance disc road

BMC RoadMachine RM01 Ultegra Bicycle

Redefining the endurance road category is the all-new BMC Roadmachine, featuring hydraulic disc-brakes with thru axles front and rear and a not-too-stiff, not-too-soft ride. Designed with internally-routed cables and hidden brake-lines, the Roadmachine offers a sleek aesthetics on top of an industry leading level of compliance and comfort. The highly-adjustable stem allows any rider – from new enthusiast to experienced competitor – a wide range of handlebar positions to best suit riders’ fitting needs.  In addition, BMC has re-visited their Tuned Compliance Concept to deliver powerful performance at the pedals, while maintaining comfort in the saddle from the first mile and beyond.  BMC’s racing heritage can still be seen in the Roadmachine, with stiffness, weight, and handling that would make even the most discerning roadie smile.  Not to overshadow the Teammachine legacy, BMC continues offering an SLR01, for those looking for the ultimate in stiffness, control, light weight, and precision handling.  Utilizing BMC’s ACE (Accelerated Composites Evolution) Technology, engineers optimized every tube shape and carbon laminate to achieve BMC’s perfect pro tour bike. Between these two platforms, BMC offers a wide range in pricepoints, ensuring each model achieve’s BMC’s performance standards.

BMC Mountain Bikes

Born on Swiss dirt

BMC SF02 SpeedFox XT Mountain Bike

Though known primarily for high-end road bikes, BMC is certainly no stranger to technical mountain trails. Bred in the Swiss Alps, bikes like the teamelite TE01 and Fourstroke are leading the singletrack pack with a signature combination of advanced design and capable handling. The TE01 elevates the hardtail category with its unique MTT damping technology, providing superior rear-wheel traction and fatigue-fighting vertical compliance (to the tune of 15mm of wheel movement). Ride performance can be tuned easily by switching out MTT dampers, with a choice of 3 stiffness levels, to suit rider to the course ahead. For long climbs and fast singletrack, the enhanced traction of the TE01 is hard to beat. Developed for endurance events and high-output riding the BMC TE01 hardtail takes race bikes in a new direction.

For those wanting added control on tough terrain BMC offers their well-known Fourstroke models. Not only has this bike been ridden to numerous XC victories by Julien Absalon, it continues to be a favorite of hard-charging riders everywhere. BMC has taken full advantage of the 29 inch wheel size by delivering a responsive ride and exceptional handling in what they call the Big Wheel Concept (BWC). This concept puts the rider into the bike with a low center-of-gravity while still allowing the taller wheels to roll easily over anything in their way. Their front-end geometry puts the rider in control with spot-on steering, utilizing a slightly slacker headtube, longer reach, wider bars, and shorter stems. BMC builds the Fourstroke using their race-proven APS linkage for maximum pedaling efficiency, superior braking control and excellent small-bump compliance. Cross country racers at any level can appreciate the performance of the BMC Fourstroke on race day or anytime they want to pick up the pace.
