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.

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.
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.
