ICS - Integrated Cockpit System

We strive to be at the forefront of design through innovative solutions that prioritize functional integration and provide significant benefits for the rider. The ICS technology corresponds to this philosophy, a proprietary system that provides stealth cable routing from handlebar to rear axle without compromising fit, adjustability and practicality.

A leading solution and bike industry first, ICS technology combines form and function for the most advanced cockpit design in the market, enabling us to set new standards in frame design.


The all-new ICS Carbon and ICS2 represent years of refinement and pave the way for a new era of performance, integration and visual excellence. ICS Technology is available on selected platforms throughout the BMC product line to offer the benefits of functional integration to a broad range of rider profiles.

ICS Carbon and ICS2 represent 4 years of technical refinement and real-world testing.

ICS for All

Altitude,  Endurance, Aero or Gravel?

ICS technology components are designed to deliver the benefits of functional integration to every discipline and riding style.





Stealth Cable Routing

The seamless integration featured on the ICS Carbon cockpit results in a clean and understated look. We believe that there is more to integration than pure form and this is what we call functional integration.

Integrating cable routing into our stem and cockpit blends functionality and design, greatly improving aerodynamic performance and allowing us to optimize the frame design.

We didn’t stop there! All electronic components and brake lines are securely stored away from the elements for extra durability.

Our ICS Technology accommodates 2 hydraulic lines and 2 electronic shifter cables, making it compatible with modern electronic drivetrains.


Easy Stack Adjust

ICS technology allows for easy stack adjustment thanks to the interlocking spacer design. This allows for easy stack adjustment without stem or cockpit removal and hydraulic cables disconnection.

The spacers are offered in 3mm and 10mm heights to perfectly tune the stack.

The topcone, the interface between the frame and the spacer, or the cockpit, are all available in various heights depending on the frameset to allow for the perfect setup, minimizing the use of spacers.


Easy Reach Adjust

ICS Technology stems and the 2-piece ICS Aero cockpit allow for the exchange of stem lengths without the need to disconnect shifter and brake lines.


Device Mounts

ICS Carbon and ICS Carbon Aero feature an integrated alloy mount with interchangeable adapters for Garmin and Wahoo devices.

A GoPro style mount can be added under the main mount for additional devices like lights and cameras.

The mount is adjustable in length to adapt to different device sizes for a perfectly flush look.

ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem

The latest development in the MTT ecosystem is further innovation to front-end drop bar suspension; our all-new MTT Suspension Stem, developed in conjunction with the team at Redshift.

Using Redshift’s proven ShockStop technology, as well as our pioneering BMC Swiss engineering, we were able to design an advanced, lightweight, and finely crafted suspension stem.

ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem

The ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem completes the evolution of Micro Travel Technology, a complete ecosystem of integrated suspension components designed to elevate the riding experience across a wide range of riding styles through efficiency, seamless integration and low weight.

The all-new ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem blends BMC’s Integrated Cockpit System technology and iconic design with Redshift’s ShockStop technology to smoothen out road imperfections and take the edge off the roughest roads and gravel tracks.

Redshift Sport’s game-changing ShockStop technology provides an incredibly refined and effective suspension system in a simple and reliable design.

The ICS MTT x Redshift Stem is catered to a broad range of users, from Gravel to All-Road and Endurance, without forgetting Fitness and Urban riders that prefer flat handlebars.

• More comfort: vibrations are soaked up by the stem’s elastomers for a smooth riding feel

• More control: Shockstop technology removes the white noise created by vibrations and small impacts, allowing you to take control of the bike for a confident ride feel

• More Speed: energy that is normally wasted suspending your body is converted into forward motion

• Less muscle fatigue equals to more performance and or more time you can spend doing the best thing in the world

• Customize your ride: easy to exchange elastomers to fine-tune your riding feel


The new ICS MTT x Redshift Stem features:

• Integrated Cockpit System (ICS) technology for stealth cable routing as well as perfect integration for a clean and aerodynamic profile.

• Up to 20 mm travel

• 72, 80, 90, 100 mm lengths

The ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem provides a wide range of direct benefits to the riding experience:

• More comfort: vibrations are eliminated by the stem’s elastomers for a smooth riding feel

• More control: Shockstop technology removes the white noise created by vibrations and small impacts, allowing control of the bike for a confident ride feel

• More speed: energy that is normally wasted suspending your body, is converted into forward motion

• More time: Less muscle fatigue equals more performance

• More customization: easy to exchange elastomers to fine-tune your riding feel

The ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem pivots around an oversized axle, designed to provide the lateral stiffness of a classic stem. The stem body relies on durable cartridge bearings for rotation, while the suspension is provided by two elastomers positioned inside the stem body; the elastomer units are easily exchangeable, making it easy to adapt depending on rider weight, riding style and terrain. An additional elastomer prevents hard top-outs due to rapid extensions, providing smooth and quiet operation.

The ICS MTT x Redshift Stem is fully compatible with Integrated Cockpit Technology framesets, allowing for clean aesthetics and extended durability. The stem can also be used on round-steerer forks using the dedicated round top-cap.

The ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem pivots around an oversized axle and durable sealed cartridge bearings to deliver the same lateral stiffness of a classic stem.

The ICS MTT x Redshift Stem is crafted by forging and precision-machining the high-end aluminum alloys, also used to produce ICS2 stems.

• Two interchangeable elastomers provide the dampening function, making it easy to adapt on rider weight riding style and terrain.

• An additional elastomer prevents hard top-outs in case of rapid extensions, enabling a smooth and quiet operation.

Sportive and Natural Riding-Feel

The oversized pivot supports the high torsional stiffness of high-performance stems, allowing for a natural suspension feeling and riding experience with enough damping to help the rider stay in control without removing direct road feedback or numbing the ride.

Sensitive Suspension

Extremely reactive and sensitive elastomers, effectively dampening high-frequency road buzz and sting out bigger impacts.

Integration

The ICS technology allows for a tidy cable routing, improving durability along the way, thanks to the cable being hidden away from the elements.

Compatibility

The stem can be used on ICS technology and standard round-steerer forks; a great upgrade opportunity for any bike.

The ICS MTT x Redshift Suspension Stem can be customized to provide a different feel by changing the elastomer configuration:

• Softer elastomers: plusher riding feel, reduced terrain feedback

• Harder elastomers: direct riding feel, more terrain feedback

The elastomer combinations can be mixed and matched. With a list of suggestions below.
