Roadmachine 01 MODULE

The story

“With the Roadmachine’s compliance, I have the luxury of taking that same sensation everywhere I go.”

Conrad Glassey can recognise a good surface from a mile away. When not excelling on choppy white water or whizzing along XC ski tracks, BMC’s Head of Product Management can reel off the differences between Swiss and French tarmac surface. He grins: “Where should I start?”

“Sometimes I think we’re a bit spoilt in Switzerland. Even the smallest farm road in Emmental is as smooth as an airport runway. But with the Roadmachine’s compliance, I have the luxury of taking that same sensation everywhere I go.” Swiss tarmac and the Roadmachine go hand in hand if you ask Glassey. Created to maximise compliance, it’s a natural fit for the athletic 49-year-old who splits his time between France’s less-manicured roads and BMC’s HQ in Grenchen

 

 

Travel, friends and family are three key pillars in his life–and all of them involve sport. Once an international kayaker, Glassey now uses sport to keep grasp not only on his fitness, but also on the people and places that surround him. These days, he recognises that his multisport background has influenced his choice of a versatile bike. “The sorts of rides I go on today are social, often with a coffee stop, but almost certainly with a bit of exertion towards the top of the climbs.” He looks bashful: “You know, the typical male thing of being first.”

In the press

What are they saying?

Stand out details for us, you ask?

Subtle graphics are nothing new but the digital treatment to the logo is particularly nice. Couple that with some on-trend colours and the pièce de résistance, that integrated front end, hiding all cables from view and you've got a splendid, clean-looking machine.

Rouleur Desire

Just by looking at the new Roadmachine 01 ONE, we’re overcome by the same feeling of awe we experienced while testing its predecessor: just WOW!

BMC had already proved how much sex appeal Endurance bikes can have, but with the new Roadmachine generation, the Swiss take it to a whole new level.

Comfortable and fast

that's what a modern road bike must feel like!
