2015 BMC teammachine SLR01

The teammachine SLR01 redefines the concept of balanced ride characteristics. With over 34,000 frame iterations developed by computer-generated engineering software, this bike hit the design target of balanced stiffness, lightweight, and compliance on the first try. Involvement with the BMC Racing Team, some of the most influential riders in the peloton, helped establish the most important characteristics for this bike, making it an industry leader in the mountains of the world’s biggest races. Climbing, attacking, sprinting and ripping through corners are what this bike was meant to do – and without a sacrifice in compliance. The teammachine SLR01 will make its presence known during the majority of the BMC Racing Team’s race calendar, including the Grand Tours and several of the Spring Classics.

2015 BMC timemachine TMR01

The solo artist, the sprinter and the lead-out train – what do they all need…free speed. SubA aero technology blends optimal tube shapes, incredible levels of integration and maximum stiffness to pull out just a few watts of free speed. The timemachine TMR01 frame was the perfect platform for BMC to maximize engineering opportunities by creating a bike that is invisible to the wind without sacrificing the ability to produce immense power when riders stomp on the pedals. The BMC timemachine TMR01 makes itss way to the start line when crosswinds are present, rolling hills or flat terrain arise, or when the course favors the solo artist.
