Composure is a quality trait in high demand at the moment. Being composed means being self-assured in their ability; confident that regardless of what happens, the storm will be weathered. Many yearn for composure in just about every aspect of their lives and are willing to pay a premium for it. For those looking for greater composure in their lives without having to pay an absolute premium for it, we present the 2021 BMC Teammachine SLR FOUR.
The Teammachine SLR FOUR shares geometry and most features with the kingpin Teammachine SLR. The d-shaped seatpost, tuned for greater compliance over imperfect tarmac, is held in place by an integrated No-Gap seatpost, again for greater compliance. Direct-mount brake calipers not only stop the bike faster, but they allow for up to a 28 mm tire. The frame is asymmetric for better out-of-saddle stiffness while keeping weight low. This is all thanks to BMC’s Advanced Composite Evolution (ACE+) technology, which refined the new Teammachine SLR FOUR over 34,000 different virtual frame configurations, plus an additional 18,000 new virtual configurations for this new model, improving stiffness, weight, compliance and aerodynamics. Weight is a minimal 1015 g for the frame, and 375 g for the fork, while the bike looks and feels more efficient than ever.
The Teammachine SLR FOUR’s composure really comes from how it rides. It maintains the excellent balance of stiffness, lightweight, and compliance that the Teammachine name is so heralded for. Turn-in is quick without being twitchy, The bike moves effortlessly forward at the slightest hint of acceleration, and does it without being jittery. This level of smoothness in its inputs leads to a bike that helps riders feel in control at every moment.
This particular BMC Teammachine SLR FOUR brings tour-winning pedigree and composure to an excellent price point. It is based around a Shimano 105 and Shimano RS-170 wheels. Available in six sizes (47-61 cm), it also uses a BMC D-shaped carbon seatpost, BMC alloy handlebar and stem, Fizik Antares R7 saddle, and Vittoria Zaffiro 25mm tires.
