The crossmachine CX01 is back

After a brief hiatus of BMC in the frontlines of the professional cyclo-cross world tour call-up, the crossmachine CX01 is back, and better than ever. Connecting exclusive BMC ACE technology with the experience of top-level international riders make for a tremendously fast cyclo-cross bike. The addition of the latest braking and drivetrain technology make this bike the perfect weapon for every cross race, from the world cup to your local circuit.

ACE Technology

BMC's revolutionary ACE technology software was applied to optimize the CX01's tube shapes, carbon layup, and geometrical structure. As a result, BMC presents a cyclo-cross-specific frame with superb performance characteristics. The final product makes for a wispy 980 g frame with outstanding lateral and torsional stiffness combined and comfort-enhancing vertical compliance.


Mastering rough and demanding terrain is a key aspect of making it to the podium in cyclo-cross racing. With BMC's Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC), BMC proved its ability to build top-performing and highly comfortable road bike frames. TCC ensures that ground-level vibrations and shocks are reduced to keep the rider fresh for the final kick to the finish line.

Disc brake integration

Disc brakes have naturally become the new standard in cyclo-cross, given their predictable and powerful braking performance, which is largely unaffected by the harsh environmental conditions regularly experienced during cyclo-cross season. BMC shows its commitment to disc brakes with the most advanced integration on the market by using a proprietary BMC CX fork where brake cables are integrated directly into the head tube.


The SRAM Force CX1 groupset is the newest crossover from mountain biking to cyclo-cross. This unique 1×11 transmission makes for easy handling while markedly reducing the potential for mechanical defaults.The crossmachine CX01 frameset is also fully compatible with Shimano Di2, as well as any mechanical shifting groupset with disc brakes.


This bike is fully UCI compliant for cyclo-cross races.

With several measurements in common with the SLR series machines, the CX01 feels very direct, its great lateral stiffness ideal for repeated accelerations. Efficiency, due to the huge down tube, was excellent, converting crank force to forward motion fast. The extra material invested in the frame to strengthen it for discs and the rigours of off-road doesn’t dull performance, as the CX01 felt suitably nimble during our dry hardpack ride.
