BMC Adds Disc Brakes to Teammachine SLR01 DISC

Adherents to the disc brake movement will rejoice after hearing BMC has decided to equip its popular Teammachine SLR01 road bike with the latest hydraulic disc brake offerings from Shimano, along with some other impressive additions.

Capitalizing on the success of its caliper brake sibling, the Teammachine SLR01 DISC is available in Dura Ace Di2, Ultegra Di2 or mechanical Ultegra equipped models, which feature either Shimano’s SM-RT900 or SM-RT800 Ice Tech Freeza flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes, along with front and rear 12mm thru-axles and a proprietary sandwich style derailleur hanger, which is something typically found only on mountain bikes. 

In addition to hydraulic disc brakes, BMC has developed a new stem and special steerer tube that allows the hydraulic hoses to be routed directly into the frame, along with electronic shifting integration that now routes cabling inside a single port that’s located at the top of the downtube.

Despite the need to increase carbon lay-up in keys areas along the frame in order to compensate for the additional load disc brakes create, BMC says extensive in-house computer modeling enabled them to keep the frame’s weight within 28g of its caliper brake counterpart.

The Teammachine SLR01 DISC is available in three models, the Team, One and Two, which in addition to the aforementioned groupsets come equipped with either DT Swiss’ PRC 1100 DICUT db 35 Carbon, PRC 1400 SPLINE db 35 Carbon or PR 1600 SPLINE db 23 wheels respectively. 

BMC does not publish pricing for the USA, which is left to authorized dealers to disclose.

The evolution of acceleration

Do you seek pro-level race performance? The climbing prowess of Richie Porte? The explosive speed of Greg Van Avermaet?

Backed by the confidence of a World Championship win, the prestige of a Tour de France title, and the experience of owning countless World and Grand Tour stages, the Teammachine is well-equipped to stare any brutal day of racing square in the face. 

And yet, to win is not enough. Even the best must evolve to remain on the top step of the podium. At BMC, we challenge ourselves to improve, because to stand still – is to be overtaken. Our mission is to constantly innovate; to make the world’s winningest bike even better. By utilizing our own ACE Technology, we accelerated the evolution of the Teammachine by light years. The result is the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling: the world’s raciest balance of weight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximal integration and Swiss design.

Now it’s your turn to evolve. You’re ready to carry on the winning legacy of the Teammachine; to face adversity with the confidence that your competitors are now racing against the very best.

Increased Efficiency – Increased Performance

ACE technology findings have been consolidated by our Impec Lab experts, to deliver the strongest yet lightest generation of the Teammachine to date.

Legendary Ride Quality

The Teammachine’s trademark balance of lightweight, stiffness and compliance continues to deliver the superior ride experience it is famous for.

Looks Sleek

The Teammachine SLR01’s Integrated Cockpit System (ICS) re- defines ‘sleek front-end’, while our proprietary Direct Frontal Flat-Mount eliminates extra material to shave off grams. Our engineers also cleverly integrated the Di2 junction box, hiding if from sight within the frame.

Fast…by Design

The new Teammachine changes the classic formula – now great form comes with an unprecedented level of function.
