The New Teamelite 01 – a Racing Evolution

The high-performance discipline of cross-country racing has become, quite literally, a race to the top. Grueling, all-out sprints to the finish are supported with bikes whose maximum efficiency and minimum weight ethos pay no heed to compliance – until now.

The Impec Lab has teamed up with the BMC Mountainbike Racing Team to create the new BMC Teamelite 01 - the world’s most technically-advanced hardtail mountainbike.

Concept

The 2016 BMC Teamelite 01 is the culmination of an evolution of race bike performance. Its unique combination of efficiency, traction, and fatigue-fighting compliance technology places it in a category of its very own, and raises the bar by setting new industry standards.

Compliant

The incredible carbon engineering advancement known as Micro Travel Technology (MTT) brings riders the perfect rear-end compliance for cross-country racing.

Lightweight

Winning a World Cup race is all about maximizing technical advantages and a 1-kg frame is where it all begins. Incredible innovations in carbon technology make this frame an industry, and race-leading machine.

Efficient

Cross-country racing demands maximal pedaling efficiency to power up climbs, and snappy handling to navigate the descents – with efficient power transfer to finish the sprint off without hesitation.

Speed

The fastest way around obstacles…simply roll over them! 29er wheels are the fastest wheel choice, without question. All of our race-bred XC bikes are armed with BWC geometry and 29er wheels.

Micro Travel Technology (MTT)

BMC’s Micro Travel Technology (MTT) is the evolution of several generations of advanced cross-country weaponry. With this new system, cross-country racers can ditch the common practice of manipulating tire pressure to gain more compliance for technical descents. MTT’s damping and additional frame compliance smoothes out the ride, letting riders apply more power to gain that elusive differentiator; speed.

The progressive composite engineers of the Impec Advanced R&D Lab spent two years developing and perfecting the function and performance of the system. Simply adding compliance to the rear end of the bike was not sufficient – but to do so without loss of drivetrain efficiency, torsional rigidity, or steering responsiveness was near rocket-science. The end results are icing on the cake; virtually no weight penalty and incredibly low maintenance. Micro-Travel Technology function is the result of the engineered performance of the chainstays and seatstays through complex carbon layups and the dual-guide, integrated XCell damper.

Advanced Carbon Technology

Advanced tube shapes of the seatstay and chainstay, and carbon material type and layup bring incredible performance for technically demanding trail conditions.

Dual-Guide Design

XC racing success demands high pedaling efficiency and aggressive steering performance. The MTT system relies on a dual-guide design to promote torsional and lateral stiffness.

Small Details, Big Gains

3 Levels of Damping

The MTT system relies on a dual-guide design to promote torsional and lateral stiffness and is available in 3 levels of damping.

Optimized Carbon Performance

Advanced tube shapes of the seatstay and chainstay, and carbon material type and layup bring incredible performance for technically demanding trail conditions.

No Power Loss

The chainstays are designed to promote ideal movement for the system, with efficient power transfer to finish the sprint off without hesitation.

Sleek Look, Easy Maintenance

New internal cable routing keeps dirt and debris away, and is adaptable for single, double, electronic or mechanical drivetrains.
