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.
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 induced brake forces, led us to design an asymmetric bottom bracket and chain stays as well as a beefed-up brake direct brake-mount section. Asymmetric tube shapes enable us to continue to deliver the superior ride experience the Teammachine is famous for.
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 the Teammachine. With every injection of Wattage to its pedals the Teammachine proves that it is not just a marketing claim – it’s a competitive advantage.
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. As well as giving it a sleek look, the Teammachine’s high level of integration has an additional benefit: dirt and deliver a very clean look. On the Teammachine our engineers cleverly nested the Di2 junction box out of sight within the frame, it also has an internal cable-guiding system which makes servicing easier and prevents annoying rattling. If your friends didn’t have bike envy before, they definitely will now.

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.
Integrated Device Mount: Mount your GPS or camera but keep the cockpit clean.
D-Shaped Seat Post: Flat edge increases compliance. Less material translates to less weight. No-Gap Seatclamp – Great looks and extra compliance for long rides.
Specific Direct-Mount Design: Optimized tube shapes for improved braking performance.
Core Stiffness: Dramatic Bottom Bracket stiffness for best-in-class acceleration. Asymmetric Tube Design – Balanced ride feel, stiffness where necessary, yet compliant where desired.
Ultra Light Sandwich derailleur hanger: Durable and super light for precise shifting without a weight penalty.
