BMC TeamMachine SLR01 Revised for 2014

Lightweight: The new teammachine SLR01 is the lightest bike in the BMC line-up. The frame weighs a feathery 790 grams and makes for a 1380 gram frameset (including seatpost, fork and headset). It is nearly 15 percent lighter but at the same time 25 percent stiffer than the 2013 teammachine SLR01, and is amongst the lightest frames that are commercially available. The new SLR01’s high stiffness values combined with its low weight result in breath-taking acceleration, even while climbing the steepest grades. The proven SLR01 geometry provides excellent agility, maximum control, and sure-footed confidence on the fastest descents and the most technical corners.

ACE Technology: For the very first time in industry history, BMC replaced traditional prototyping processes with super powerful Accelerated Composites Evolution (ACE) Technology. With this unique iterative computer modeling program, more than 34’000 possible frame configurations were pro-totyped to optimize a bike’s geometrical structure, tube cross-sections, and carbon layup. The first result of ACE is the new teammachine SLR01: it embodies the perfect combination of performance factors: weight, stiffness and vertical compliance.

Comfortable: The positive effects of vertically compliant frames are well known. The absorption of high-frequency road vibration allows the rider to save critical energy stores, and thereby arrive as fresh as possible at the finish line. BMC already had a solution for this need with its Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC), introduced on the first generation teammachine SLR01. TCC optimizes carbon-fiber lay-up and tube shapes so the bike can resist rider-actuated forces, while at the same time giving in to road forces. With ACE technology, TCC has been taken to a whole new level: the new teammachine SLR01 is not only a very comfortable ride, it also offers maximum traction especially in highly technical situations.
