BMC has strengthened its role in the all-road segment thanks to a new carbon frame and other updates to its Roadmachine X.
The story of the Roadmachine began in 2016, when it first emerged as BMC’s pioneering all-road machine to challenge traditional road bike categories.
Over the past several years, BMC has continued to expand upon its design, with the Roadmachine X now targeting riders who prefer the road less traveled, bridging the gap between endurance road and gravel riding, as well as racing the clock on a b-road blast to a multi-day, multi-surface adventure ride.
The most notable updates to the Roadmachine X include BMC’s Premium Carbon and Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC) Endurance technology, comprising the Swiss brand’s sculpted carbon lay-up process, D-Shaped carbon seatpost and signature dropped, flat seatstays, as well as a specially constructed TCC fork that provides additional vertical compliance and lateral stiffness for peerless control and comfort on rough surfaces.
The Roadmachine also benefits from BMC’s signature Endurance Geometry, allowing riders to “tackle every terrain with confidence.”
“From leaning into high-speed corners on tarmac to laying it down on the varying, unpredictable terrains of back-roads, everything is calculated to deliver poised handling. In addition, there’s a wide range of fit options to match the requirements of virtually any rider—from novice to expert. Stem length, stack height and bar width, all integrated, all adjustable,” boasts BMC.
Other features that highlight the Roadmachine X include a SRAM 1X wireless XPLR drivetrain, resulting in both lightweight and a clean aesthetic, along with 32mm tubeless ready tires, allowing riders to venture into mixed-terrain riding and gravel roads with confidence.
“When we designed Roadmachine, we built an extra layer of capability into to ensure it could match the requirements of an ever-evolving breed of endurance riders, always looking to reset the boundaries of their riding experience by exploring more challenging terrains and breaking away from the dogmas of old-school road riding. We’re confident that the latest iteration extends these possibilities,” explains Stefano Gennaioli, Product Marketing Manager at BMC.
There are three models in the range, the top-tier Roadmachine X One that’s equipped with a with SRAM Force XPLR eTap AXS and 44t chainring paired with a 10-44 cassette for $6,299, and the Roadmachine X Two that comes with a SRAM Rival XPLR groupset for $4,799.
The aluminum model Roadmachine X AL One will be available for $2,099, which gets a Shimano GRX 2x drivetrain.
All models will be available six sizes (47, 51, 54, 56, 58, and 61cm), which come fitted with WTB Expanse 32mm tubeless tires.
