First Look: 2018 BMC Teammachine

BMC is poised to jump into the upcoming Tour de France and 2018 consumer season with an updated TeamMachine. Although the bike hasn’t been radically re-vamped, it has a list of changes that BMC claims makes it a faster, more compliant bike.  Two versions: the SLR01 and SLR02 will be available with either caliper or disc brakes.

1. Integrated Cockpit System
Clean aesthetics, maximum adjustability.
2. Asymmetric Tube Design
Balanced ride feel: stiffness where necessary, yet compliant where desired.

3. Direct Frontal Flat-Mount
Proprietary, super-light brake mount solution for minimal weight.

4. Core Stiffness
Dramatic Bottom Bracket stiffness for best-in-class acceleration.


5. Ultra-Light Thru-Axle Design
Proprietary, super-light thru-axle and sandwich derailleur hanger to reduce additional weight.

6. No-Gap Seatclamp
Great looks and extra compliance for long rides.

7. D-Shaped Seat Post
Compliant due to its edged shape. Less material translates to less weight.

Also, due to brake-induced forces, the fork of the Teammachine SLR Disc, boasts an asymmetric, oversized shape. Through this, we could achieve our targets for stiffness while keeping weight as low as possible. The Team Machine is spec’d to use 160mm rotors front and rear.

There will be two different models available, plus a frameset in six sizes (47, 51, 54, 56, 58, 61cm).
