A Limited Edition Teammachine for true BMC Fans
Raw, pure, honest, unique, – that’s how the personality of this very special guest of the Teammachine family would be described. Introducing the Teammachine SLR01 LTD - a production-run of just 80 bikes finished by BMC’s Impec Lab engineers and an exclusive eye-catcher that will make riders stand out from the peloton.
It took BMC’s engineers two whole years of blood, sweat and tears to achieve the sheer impossible: produce a frame that not only weighs a mere 790g, but is also comfortable and incredibly stiff. But, that is what was achieved with the Teammachine SLR01. It’s also easy to imagine that they weren’t very happy with the idea of having to produce a painted version of that same super light Teammachine SLR01 - which would mean an extra 120g of weight. To pacify our engineers and let them show off the incredible work that they do, with the Teammachine SLR01 LTD, BMC has produced a bike with no paint or decals, only a clear coat. This bike is a raw carbon beauty, delicately hand-accented with subtle BMC logos, design hints, and a production badge.
The labor involved in is what makes this bike so special. In the Impec Lab at the BMC headquarters in Grenchen, SwitzerlandThis technique demands a very high level of execution so it is being carried out manually. We’re showing you the beauty of a raw frame each bike underwent an industry-leading, proprietary, hand-finishing process. “This technique demands a very high level of execution so it is being carried out manually. We’re showing you the beauty of a raw frame”, says Stefan Christ, Head of Product at BMC Switzerland. To personalize this special edition of the Teammachine even more, each frameset will be decorated with a unique identification badge to denote the production number within the collection.
The limited edition bike is available as an ‘extended frameset’ – a complete bike with the exception of wheels to let discerning riders choose their preferred wheelset.
Even if the look of this limited edition Teammachine is quite minimal, it has just the same characteristics as BMC’s flagship road bike, the Teammachine SLR01 that has excelled like no other bike on the World Tour circuit. The Teammachine SLR01 LTD achieves the same award-winning balance of light weight, stiffness and vertical compliance due to Advanced Composite Evolution (ACE) Technology; the computer-driven, iterative calculation process behind its inception.
The Teammachine SLR01 LTD is tailor-made for riders who love everything the Teammachine SLR01 stands for – but also go weak at the knees at the opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind version of this legendary road bike.
The Teammachine SLR01 LTD is available immediately at selected BMC dealers worldwide.
