BMC Redefines Endurance Cycling with Latest Roadmachine

Twelve years ago, BMC introduced the Granfondo, targeting what it now identifies as ‘the endurance rider,’ a bike they say blended compliance and performance to tackle the rigours of cobblestone racing and less than perfect roads.

Four years later, the Roadmachine emerged, setting a new standard for BMC in the popular endurance sector.

Building on this legacy, BMC has now unveiled the latest iteration of the Roadmachine, a bike they say is poised to elevate endurance cycling to new heights.

Recognising the evolving preferences of riders, BMC has equipped the Roadmachine with road-smoothing 32 mm tyres while leaving space for 40 mm gravel tyres. This versatility, they say, transforms the Roadmachine into a true all-terrain bike, redefining the concept of one bike to do it all.

The new Roadmachine family offers a model for a wide range of riders, including the premium Roadmachine 01, the all-rounder Roadmachine, and the gravel-ready Roadmachine 01 X and Roadmachine X.

Taking cues from the original Granfondo’s kinked seat stays which helped enhance compliance, the latest Roadmachine incorporates this design element to ensure comfort on diverse surfaces. Paired with flex in the seat post, this feature is said to enhance comfort during extended rides.

The bike features downtube storage, and an integrated rear light behind the D-shaped seat post, providing peace of mind during low-light conditions or urban riding. The USB-rechargeable light offers convenience and visibility.

With a frameset weight of 963 grams for the O1 models, the Roadmachine range will be tiered from $4,799 through to $17,499. Bikes are due to arrive in Australia in the second half of 2024.

  • Roadmachine 01 TWO RRP $17,499
  • Roadmachine 01 THREE RRP $11,499
  • Roadmachine 01 FOUR RRP $10,999
  • Roadmachine TWO RRP $7,499
  • Roadmachine FOUR RRP $5,999
  • Roadmachine FIVE RRP $4,799
Models from the Roadmachine 01 Two through to the alloy framed RM FIVE will be available in Australia.
