“Let there be no doubts, we are ready to continue to dominate the peloton”, says BMC in their product overview for their 2020 BMC Teammachine SLR02 TWO. It’s true – recent victories in the Olympics road race, Paris – Nice, and several stage wins at the Giro d’Italia highlight BMC’s now-massive list of wins under the previous Teammachine. If the current race frameset was so winning, what makes BMC think that they would need to update their modern classic?
BMC took the inputs of their Factory Team and found they needed to improve. They started with the outgoing Teammachine and it’s 34,000 various virtual frame simulations, and then did another 18,000 for this new model, all in the name of dominance. They were able to settle in on a new design – geometry remains largely the same, but an asymmetric frame exemplifies optimization. SLR02 frame and fork weight is set at 1015 g and 375 g, respectively. Direct-mount brake calipers are recruited for braking that is better-modulated, more powerful, and capacious enough for a 28 mm tire. The bike comes with an integrated seat post clamp that neatly fits their new d-shaped seatpost, which is flat on the back allowing it to flex and absorb some road vibration. BMC has also incorporated a modular downtube cable and wire junction that perfectly hides a Shimano Di2 junction box holds shift cable housing with ease and is easily coverable when using a wireless groupset.
BMC has hit another homerun with the 2012 Teammachine SLR02 TWO. It provides WorldTour-levels of performance without the high asking price of it’s lighter SLR01 sibling. The SLR02 TWO features a Shimano Ultegra R8000 mechanical wheelset and a Shimano RS-300 Wheelset. A BMC D-shaped carbon seatpost, BMC alloy handlebar and stem, and Fizik Antares R7 saddle. It is available in six sizes (47 – 61 cm).
