The evolution of acceleration
The Teammachine has won them all; the Tour de France, the Olympics, World Championships, and grueling Classics. Despite its success, we haven’t been resting on our laurels: to stand still means being overtaken – to remain at the top, the best must evolve. To bring you the new Teammachine, we pushed the boundaries of advanced cycling technology. Its creation has been all-encompassing.
First, we gathered feedback from our professional riders – no one knows the Teammachine better than they do. We also sought advice from partners outside of the industry to make sure we had access to the latest scientific research. We leveraged our decades of in-house carbon expertise, and explored the possibilities by applying our 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, we are ready to continue dominating the peloton.
Asymetric Design by ACE Technology
Our in-house Accelerated Composites Evolution (ACE) technology accelerates the development process by light years. Using this virtual prototyping process instead of traditional methods meant we could explore more tube shape options for the Teammachine. Analysis of the load distribution from the rider and brake-induced forces, led us to asymmetric tube structures on the fork, bottom bracket and chain stays. Asymmetric tube shapes enable us to continue to deliver the superior ride experience the Teammachine is famous for.
We’ve 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 our favorite 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 our proprietary Direct Frontal Flat-Mount eliminates extra material to shave off grams. Our 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.
Ultra-lightweight premium carbon
Once ACE Technology did its job to define the perfect tube shapes, our Impec Lab technicians scrutinized carbon lay-up methods to define the strongest yet lightest construction for theTeammachine. With every injection of Wattage to its pedals theTeammachine proves that it is not just a marketing claim – it’s a competitive advantage.

1, 2, 34,000…. BMC’s proprietary computer technology evaluates thousands of versions of a frameset design, ensuring the final product delivers the performance riders demand.
Rider’s choice – Aesthetics should not be an afterthought – DTi allows BMC frames to look like the precision machines we designed them to be, regardless of drivetrain variations.
Hidden in plain sight, the technical proficiency and aesthetic simplicity of the Integrated Cockpit is the epitome of Swiss engineering and design. Keeping cables and housing in their place: out of sight.
Integrated Cockpit System: Clean aesthetics maximum adjustability. Integrated Device Mount – Mount your GPS or camera but keep the cockpit clean.
Asymmetric Tube Design: Balanced ride feel, stiffness where necessary, yet compliant where desired.
D-Shaped Seat Post: Compliant due to its edged shape. Less material translates to less weight. No-Gap Seatclamp – Great looks and extra compliance for long rides.
Core Stiffness: Dramatic Bottom Bracket stiffness for best-in-class acceleration.
Direct frontal Flat mount: Proprietary, super-light brake mount solution for minimal weight.
