BMC Team Machine SLR01 2012 Di2 Frameset
The frame that won the 2011 Tour de France. The BMC Team Machine SLR01 was ridden by Cadel Evans to tour victory, as well as the majority of the BMC team. Yes, Cadel did ride the Impec for the last stage, but his frame of choice throughout the race was the Team Machine SLR01. Small wonder why. The Team Machine is lighter than the Impec, has a geometry conducive to long days in the saddle, and is designed to be supremely comfortable. All this and it's still stiff and precise enough for Cadel's diesel engine and descending prowess.
Two key technologies have made the Team Machine SLR01 the favorite of the BMC Racing Team. The first is iSC, or Integrated Skeleton Concept. iSC allows BMC to make the front triangle as stiff and light as possible. When used in conjunction with premium carbon fibers, it allows BMC to create a frame that is 920 grams in a size 55cm. Since BMC considers the seat post and fork part of the frame system, these components are included and bring the total weight to 1435 grams, including seat clamp and headset.
BMC's Tuned Compliance Concept technology is what makes this frame so comfortable. Woven fibers, rather than unidirectional, are placed at key points in the frame, fork, and seat post to help absorb as much road vibration as possible. The seat stays are positioned low on the seat tube, allowing the seat tube itself to vertically flex and help absorb road chatter. These technologies allow you to ride farther and more comfortably.
Lastly, BMC designed the SLR01 to be ultra stable bombing down long descents, making it a perfect bike for the person who likes long rides or the climber. The 1-1/4" lower crown on the tapered fork lends steering precision, while the relaxed steering angle keeps the bike from feeling skittish and twitchy. Even those who venture the dirt roads of the east coast will find the Team Machine SLR01 stiff yet forgiving. BMC literally has a winner with the Team Machine SLR01.
