The fastest bike on Earth finds a new ‘F’ocus: Form, Function, Fit.

The all-new Timemachine is tailor-made for triathletes. The culmination of four years of studying the needs of multi-sport athletes, a three-year aerodynamics partnership with Sauber Engineering and two years of final product development, the Timemachine is the new benchmark for triathlon-specific equipment. With continued legendary SubA aerodynamics performance, the Timemachine's recipe for success is clear – superior tube shaping, maximum component integration, and an extensive rider positioning system. For middle and long-distance triathlons or time trials, the new Timemachine is the must-have bike for races against the clock.

Ultimate versatility: The V-Cockpit (spec on all complete bikes and frameset optional) offers optimal aerodynamic performance for taller pad stack dimensions, while the forward-offset promotes vertical compliance – a state-of-the-art blend of high-performance and comfort.

Technology Focus – timemachine 01 SRAM Red eTap

Fully integrated 3rd generation hinge-fork ensures a lean frontal profile, seamlessly integrated brake calipers and a revolutionary, new cockpit mounting system that promotes both form and function.

A rear-mount equipment storage box, top tube fuel box mounts, and down tube dual-mount bottle cage options add up to a dedicated triathlon weapon.

The Flat-Cockpit (optional on frameset, not included with complete bike) offers the maximum aerodynamic advantage, letting riders attain the lowest possible pad stack configurations.

Hidden Brake Booster Technology increases the brake-lever-pull to caliper-free-stroke ratio ensuring the brake pads provide sufficient clearance at times of wheel flex. The system allows for the complete disconnection of the cockpit (when paired with electronic shifting options) for travel purposes.

Equipped with the patented Quick-Pad cartridge system, the revised caliper design improves overall brake function and aerodynamic performance. Perfect placement of the rear wheel thanks to hollow, full-carbon adjustable dropouts.

Aerodynamic

Form Following a 3-year partnership with Sauber Engineering, a newly revised SubA concept summarizes our aerodynamic advantages: tubes with truncated profiles, crosswind-stable tube shapes, hinge-fork design, a super-lean frontal area and maximum integration overall. Combined with our Position-to-Perform (P2P) rider-position system, this machine is all about free speed - for long course triathlons, time trials or solo efforts in wind-swept terrain.

Functional Integration

BMC brought the first hinge-fork to the market more than a decade ago, but being the first is not enough for our engineers. We have refined the third generation of our proprietary hinge-fork to create an even leaner frontal area with seamless form and maximized function. Hidden brake calipers, cables, and housing, and an all-new hidden seat clamp make this bike feel practically invisible to the rider and more importantly, the wind.

Dual-purpose, Rider-focused

Fit A slippery-fast frame is a good start - but adding a versatile, aerodynamic positioning system for the rider breaks records. The refined Position-to-Perform (P2P) system lets triathletes find their ideal contact points without sacrificing aerodynamics, no matter how aggressive or conservative their front-end position.

Triathlon Prioritized

Stable in crosswinds and lightning fast in straight lines, predictable handling in your aero position, an adaptable cockpit for short or long reach preferences and high or low stack heights, the 'Quick-pad' brake cartridge system for swapping out your racing and training wheels, fuel and equipment storage...all of the signs point to multi-sport performance. If your race includes a bike split, this is the machine for you.
