The BMC Teammachine SLR01 is a top choice of some of the fastest cyclists in the world due to its balance of speed and handling. Each year, the BMC Teammachine takes one more step towards perfection. This bike has seen success at the highest level of competition, winning the Tour de France, Olympics, and many Classics. Still, BMC is working tirelessly to make the Teammachine even better thanks to feedback from professional riders and a supercomputer algorithm that tested tens of thousands of frame variations to settle on the optimal design.
Pros have raved about the geometry of the Teammachine but it continues to improve. The ACE Technology ran 34,000 frame iterations over the course of a year to come up with the perfect tube shape and structure for the frame to help its rider find their perfect position for maximum efficiency. The fork of the Teammachine includes an oversized asymmetric shape that shaves off weight while keeping the desired stiffness.
The Teammachine does well wherever it goes. It has no problems handling cobblestone or mountains with speed and precision. This bike has outstanding linear speed but can also turn and corner very well. Using BMC?™s Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC) and a premium carbon build, it performs well in the toughest conditions.
BMC aimed to improve on the already strong balance of compliance and stiffness at a very light weight. The rim brake version saves even more weight and utilizes direct-mount brakes. Its light weight helps handle those tough climbs while remaining stiff enough for the inevitable sprint. As a result, the Teammachine boasts a very balanced performance that allows for top speeds without becoming difficult to control.
The design of the BMC Teammachine SLR01 sticks with the classic BMC simple but sleek look. If you choose to use the Di2, the junction box can be tucked away, out of sight in the frame. An internal cable guiding system makes servicing easier and helps maintain its sleek look. The Integrated Cockpit System (ICS) allows for adjustability and seamless cable integration.
The BMC team realizes that they need to continue to improve each year to stay on top. Winning races is great, but to keep winning, one must evolve. With the amount of research and improving that goes into this bike each year, you can be certain that you are getting the best technology BMC has to offer. With the BMC Teammachine SLR01, you will be able to look even the most grueling day of racing square in the face with confidence.
