A racing evolution
The high-performance discipline of cross-country racing has become, quite literally, a race to the top. Grueling, all-out sprints to the finish are supported with bikes whose maximum efficiency and minimum weight ethos pay no heed to compliance – until now.
The BMC Teamelite 02 is the culmination of an evolution of race bike performance. Its unique combination of efficiency, traction, and fatigue-fighting compliance technology places it in a category of its very own, and raises the bar by setting new industry standards.
This feathery frame delivers incredible drivetrain stiffness, perfect torsional and steering performance and rider-focused Big Wheel Concept geometry.
Cross-country racing demands maximal pedaling efficiency to power up climbs, and snappy handling to navigate the descents – saving energy to finish off the sprint with conviction.
The fastest way around obstacles is over them! 29er wheels are, without question, the fastest wheel choice. All of our race-bred cross-country mountain bikes are armed with Big Wheel Concept geometry.
