Great music is transformed from a nice experience, into an unforgettable, amazing one when amplified by power and the latest technology. Now too will your mountain biking with the Trailfox AMP - a mind-expanding, generation 2.0 e-MTB. The Trailfox AMP opens the door to a new mountain bike experience so you can finally take on the more challenging and technical rides that have been on your to-do list. More range, more freedom to explore: your potential…Amplified. One of BMC's golden rules is the absolute refusal to sacrifice trail performance whether that’s pedal-assisted or not. To develop the Trailfox AMP, BMC first got to work by studying different e-bike ride situations, and they noticed a distinct riding style emerge that simply could not be ignored. BMC realized that in order to bring the famous Trailfox ride quality to the Trailfox AMP and guarantee a top-notch ride experience, they needed to make some vital changes. So BMC adjusted typical Trailfox geometry for specific e-MTB needs, and enhanced their sturdy APS suspension with bigger pivots to compensate for the extra load and torque. They also fine-tuned its kinematics so your power is smoothly blended with that of the bike. And looks? The Trailfox AMP is mountain biker eye candy. BMC Impec Lab’s obsessive prototyping and carbon sculpting has resulted in the most functional yet elegantly integrated e-MTB out there. Get Amp’d. Because now, everything is possible.
- E-MTB Specific Geo Concept - BMC's Impec Lab engineered the Trailfox AMP’s new frame from the ground up to keep the long-reach, short-chainstay feel of their contemporary Trailfox geometry. BMC designed the frame to take advantage of a lower center of gravity typical of e-MTB’s and the specific way they are ridden. BMC slightly raised the bottom bracket but held on to the slack head-angle, plush travel and agility of an all-mountain ride. With Shimano’s E-8000 Steps BMC were able to implement short chain-stays for a snappier ride feel and not just that, it also allowed them to preserve a standard MTB Q-factor.
- APS – Advanced Pivot System - Trailfox AMP’s tailored kinematics, pivot placement, leverage ratios, and shock dimensions bring all-mountain manners to an e-MTB. Delivering a smooth ride so you are prepared for what’s beyond the berm. The best suspension designs provide control and confidence - so you can ride without hesitation. The same unified rear triangle as their other APS designs, with two oversized links, create a strong, durable rear triangle that delivers rider comfort and excellent control. While its stiff platform when pedaling, and active suspension, deliver efficient, smooth operation both up and down - without ever compromising fun-factor.
- Twin Hollow-Core Technology - How do you create a stiff frame that holds a battery and drive unit, yet still performs like a world-class mountain bike? With their Impec Lab’s new Twin Hollow-core Technology- that’s how. The Trailfox AMP’s innovative twin tubes increase overall frame stiffness – critical on a heavier bike with additional components such as a drive unit. Twin Hollow-core tube shapes also allow us to integrate components, protecting them from wear and tear. And last but definitely not least – they let us adhere to the design principles they are famous for. The Trailfox AMP doesn’t compete for attention – it commands it.
