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 andtear through exposure to dirt. The Teammachine SLR02 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.
Lightweight premium carbon
The equation behind creating the stiffest, lightest and most compliant bike is a mix of knowledge gleaned from years of unbridled experimentation at our Impec Lab with the know-how of an engineering team skilled in bike-specific carbon technology. 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 SLR02.
