Turn every ride into a Classic

The granfondo is built by BMC for the Spring Classics, but the same features that make it perfect on those races smooth out the road ahead of you, no matter where or how long you're riding. Vertical compliance, stable handling, immediate power transfer and reliability are factors necessary to succeed in the northern races but they're also on top of the wish list of any recreational rider. Sure, the granfondo reduces the suffering of the pros in Paris Roubaix, the "Hell of the North", but it also enhances the riding experience for us mere mortals.

Technology Focus – granfondo GF02 Ultegra compact

Detail view demonstrates angle compliance thanks to chainstay shape and the bottom bracket core stiffness thanks to maximum width of the downtube to seat tube connection.

Technology

  • TCC

    Tuned Compliance Concept

    Tuned performance - Stiff where you need it, compliance where you don't.
  • 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.
For classics i am looking for a bike that is ready for difficult racing and tough weather conditions! The BMC granfondo has got it all.

Comfortable

BMC’s Tuned Compliance Concept is further enhanced with the Angle Compliance system. Optimized Carbon fiber layups and tube shapes are combined with cantilevered rear dropouts, flexible, flattened seat stays, and the added rake on the fork. From the first pedal stroke you will notice how comfortable it is. Our proprietary seatpost, which is designed to flex in response to upward force, is also part of the compliance system.

Confidence inspiring

Thanks to the tapered 1-1/8 to 1 1/2-inch steerer tube, oversized down tube, and massive chain stays, the bike is renowned for its stability on descents. Designed to take up to 28mm tires, the granfondo lets you tackle the roughest, bumpiest roads with ease

Ergonomics

The granfondo’s geometry has been optimized for riding long distances on all kinds of roads. It is very stable with a greater bottom bracket drop and a laid-back head tube angle enabling a more relaxed and upright seating position.

On-trend

Keep your bike on the road, and not in the workshop. With an integrated chain catcher, durable tires, and a well-rounded choice of components, this bike will take you thousands of kilometers with little need for maintenance. Upgrade your bike to the latest drivetrain technology with DTi (dual transmission integration).

Race-ready

This bike is fully UCI compliant.
