BMC Release TeamMachine SLR01 Disc

BMC’s legendary Teammachine has played a pivotal role in some of the biggest races of them all – the Tour de France, Olympics, World Championships, and grueling Classics.

The clean lines of BMC’s new integrated Cockpit System.

Despite its success, the company says even the best must evolve and, as such, has released the latest incarnation of the Teammachine – a disc brake version. Refined, slick and minimalist, BMC say they took advice from top professionals – Richie Porte, Greg Van Avermaet and others.

“We also sought advice from partners outside of the industry to make sure we had access to the latest scientific research,” said BMC.

“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.”

The new BMC Teammachine SLR01 Disc features an integrated cockpit system (1) with clean aesthetics and maximum adjustability. There’s asymmetric tube design (2) for a balanced ride feel – stiffness where necessary, yet compliant where desired according to BMC. Bullet number 3 shows the direct frontal flat-mount for the disc – this is a proprietary, super-light brake mount solution for minimal weight. BMC claim core stiffness is improved (4) – a dramatic increase in bottom bracket stiffness for best-in-class acceleration.

The redesign includes an ultra-light, thru-axle design (5) and sandwich derailleur hanger to reduce additional weight. There’s a no-gap seatclamp (6) and a D-shaped seat post (7). BMC claim the result delivers “the pinnacle of performance in competitive cycling & world’s raciest balance of weight, stiffness and compliance, perfected with maximum integration and Swiss design.”
