Over 34,000 different ACE+ computer prototypes mean nothing if the end iteration doesn’t work. BMC knows this, and the 2021 BMC Teammachine road bike is the result of those iterations. Delightfully stiff where it needs to be without filtering in road vibrations, with low weight and nimble handling, the 2021 BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc FOUR is a well-balanced road bike.
The 2021 BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc FOUR looks remarkably similar to BMC’s Roadmachine. That’s no bad thing – the Roadmachine redefined how an endurance road bike could handle, and how a bike did not need gimmickry and unnecessary weight to improve ride smoothness. The D-shaped seatpost, shared with the Roadmachine, enables greater flex for improved comfort in the saddle. An Internal Cockpit System (ICS) for SLR01 disc brake models eliminates external cable routing, meaning no cable or wiring is showing from the handlebar to the frame’s rear axle, leading to an effortlessly clean cockpit. This level of integration is where the similarities end – the new Teammachine is it’s own bike with superbike-level performance to match its vaunted name.
The Teammachine SLR01 Disc starts with BMC’s highest quality carbon fiber and uses their Advanced Composites Evolution (ACE+) technology to test thousands of various frame configurations to find the optimal stiffness, weight, compliance and aerodynamics. As such, the frame and fork are asymmetric, and weight is cut down to just 815 g for the frame and 355 g for the fork. BMC has also worked to create a modular downtube cable stop that perfectly fits a Shimano Di2 junction box to match the sleekness found on the rest of the frame. This work and development have changed the new Teammachine into a smooth race bike in every sense of the word.
The BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc ONE features BMC’s premium carbon frame, a Shimano Ultegra Di2 R8000 drivetrain, and CRD-351 SL wheels. A Fizik Antares Verus Evo R5 saddle, BMC ICS2 integrated stem and matching BMC handlebars, and Vittoria Corsa 700 x 25c tires complete the package. The Teammachine SLR01 Disc is available in six sizes (47-61 cm).
