teamelite TE03 29 XC 29

Thoroughbred cross-country weapon

Power up the climbs, effortlessly carve down tricky descents. Then sprint to the finish line. This is what cross-country racing is all about. Riding hard and riding fast. The BMC teamelite is the one full carbon, hardtail mountain bike that combines feathery weight, vertical compliance and surgical handling. The big wheels are efficient going uphill, providing remarkable traction and momentum, while our BWC geometry enhances cornering and our proven TCC carbon technology smooths out the rough stuff. It's a simple formula: Confidence + Efficiency = Faster riding. BMC's teamelite TE01 cross country racing bike is testament to our engineers ingenuity, and our racing Team's input.

Concept

Fast: The frame geometry is built according to BMC’s BWC (Big Wheel Concept) and features a longer top tube and slacker head angle, in combination with wide handlebars, enhancing both stability and rider position. Short chain stays, low bottom bracket and a short stem compliment the concept to keep the bike lively, effectively countering the sluggish cornering felt on many 29er mountain bikes.

Efficient: Extensive use of hydroformed, triple butted tubing keeps the frame light and stiff, with additional compliance and comfort provided by the lowered seat stays. To ensure high performance, the teamelite TE03 uses the same race-oriented geometry as the TE01.

Big Wheel Concept

Our Big Wheel Concept geometries are dedicated to the 29er wheel size.

Simply incorporating bigger wheels does not by itself make a better bike, and we are convinced that the best bikes are made by taking advantage of large wheels and a deliberate geometry. For BMC, performance is not about the size, it’s about the details.

Agility - Short chain stays and stem combined with a low bottom bracket means the bike in not only efficient but also fun and lively.

Stability - Slacker than usual head angle combined with a long top and wide handlebars help you stay in control through the worst lines.
