State-of-the-art aero road bike

Wringing extra speed out of your engine isn’t always about digging deeper in the pain cave. With the timemachine TMR02, you simply get further down the road than your competition with every pedal stroke. With the TMR02, BMC chose not to just enter the aero road bike category, but redefine it, by creating a road-specific timemachine that combines maximized aerodynamics, integration and stiffness. After extensive wind tunnel testing, the TMR01 earned its wings under the most powerful rouleurs of the professional peloton. Available in a more economical component group, the TMR02 borrows crucial design principles and geometry from the timemachine TMR01.

    p2p x subA

    The formula for high-performance cycling - Position to Perform maximizes adjustability of rider position while subA innovation creates an incredibly fast frame profile.
  • DTi

    Dual Transmission Integration

    Rider's choice - Aesthetics should not be an afterthought - DTi allows BMC frames to look like the precision machines we designed them to be, regardless of drivetrain variations.

Applied aerodynamics

The frame of the TMR02 shares technology features with the timemachine TM02. The SubA concept summarizes the aerodynamic advantages: truncated tubes strike a balance between the aerodynamically optimal shape and maximum rigidity. The tripwire technology is a stepped profile running along the leading edge of the frame tubing. The goal is to better control the airflow around the profiles and delay separation of the boundary layer from the tube surface — the same effect is generated by the dimples on a golf ball.

Advanced integration

Integration of frame and components dramatically improves aerodynamic performance; like TMR02's integration of rear brake calipers into the shape of the chain stays and the proprietary seatpost, which is fixed by a hidden clamping mechanism. The TMR02 is equipped with external caliper rim brakes.

Maximized stiffness

Especially for powerful riders like rouleurs or sprinters, power transfer is just as important as aerodynamics. Consequently, the BMC engineers were tasked with challenging stiffness targets when designing this aero road bike. The appropriate use of truncated profiles in the frame design and the use of high modulus carbon fiber result in a frame that is remarkably aero, yet stiff enough to lay down some serious watts when it matters most.

On-trend

The BMC Dual Transmission integration (DTi) allows assembling the same frame with your choice of either electronic or mechanical groupsets without losses in aesthetics or aerodynamics.

Race-ready

Despite looking illegally fast, the TMR02 is fully UCI compliant and therefore ready to hit any starting line. The TMR02 is made for sprinters digging for extra watts at the finish line; rouleurs that need to keep the pressure on all day; or Olympic-distance triathletes pushing for a little breathing room from the competition before hitting the final transition.

Reviews

BMC's ultra-stiff TMR01 was a star on the road.  It's neutral steering geometry kept it predictable while it's stiffness kept it in line even under our more aggressive braking and cornering efforts.  It is one of the best-handling aero road bikes we have ever tested, an attribute that is is only improved by the race-worthy front end; a short head tube allows for the low positions racers tend to prefer.
