"None of the design is just to add styling for the sake of styling.”
There’s pride in Torgny’s voice as he says it. As BMC’s Design Director, he played a central role in the creation of our fastest bike to date, and therefore wants to set the record straight. "The design of the Timemachine Road is very much driven by its engineering," he explains. "The aerodynamic efficiency is what dictates the aesthetics to a large degree. So even though the visual integration of the bottles is a nice side effect, that specific integration is all about reducing drag.”
The designer runs his hand along the downtube, agreeing that it is a very fast-looking bike. "The angular design language with straight lines, tight radii and sharp edges communicates Swiss precision engineering, which is a big part of our DNA. The goal is that the design helps people understand the function and performance of the bike, and not just to add styling for the sake of styling.”
The most Aerodynamic iteration of ICS Technology features excellent aero performance, uncompromised adjustability, and peerless ease of service with a minimal frontal surface area, stealth cable routing and a 2-piece construction.
