The Evolution of Acceleration!
The Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France, the Olympics, World Championships, and grueling Classics. Despite its success, BMC haven’t been resting on their laurels: to stand still means being overtaken - to remain at the top, the best must evolve. To bring you the new Teammachine, they pushed the boundaries of advanced cycling technology. Its creation has been all-encompassing. First BMC gathered feedback from their professional riders – no one knows the Teammachine, better than they do. They also sought advice from partners outside of the industry to make sure they had access to the latest scientific research. BMC leveraged their decades of in-house carbon expertise, and explored the possibilities by applying their ground-breaking ACE Technology. The result is the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling: the world’s raciest balance of light weight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximal integration and Swiss design. Let there be no doubts, BMC are ready to continue to dominate the peloton.
- Asymetric Design by ACE Technology - BMC's in-house Accelerated Composites Evolution (ACE) technology accelerates the development process by light years. Using this virtual prototyping process instead of traditional methodsmeant they could explore more tube shape options for the Teammachine. Analysis of the load distribution from the rider, and brake-induced forces, led them to asymmetric tube structures on the fork, bottom bracket and chain stays. Asymmetric tube shapes enable them to continue to deliver the superior ride experience the Teammachine is famous for.
- Integration - BMC have become obsessed with integration. It takes some thinking outside of the box, but finding innovative ways to shape carbon fiber tubes to integrate cables and components with the frame, without sacrificing performance, is one of their favorite new challenges. Integration has a distinct purpose: to protect from wear and tear through exposure to dirt.The Teammachine SLR01’s Integrated Cockpit System (ICS) re-defines ‘sleek front-end’, while their proprietary Direct Frontal Flat-Mount eliminates extra material to shave off grams. BMC's engineers also cleverly nested the Di2 junction box out of sight within the frame. If your friends didn’t have bike envy before, they definitely will now.
- Lightweight Carbon - Once ACE Technology did its job to define the perfect tube shapes, BMC's Impec Lab technicians scrutinized carbon lay-up methods to define the strongest yet lightest construction for the Teammachine. With every injection of Wattage to its pedals the Teammachine proves that it is not just a marketing claim – it’s a competitive advantage.
