new granfondo GF01 - 2013

 

Rider Profile

Designed for the big, powerful BMC team riders who race on the battering cobblestones of Paris-Roubaix, this bike is also a perfect match for riders enjoying the recreational side of cycling. The optimized compliance and stable characteristics lets them ride for longer distances without getting fatigued and attack the trickiest descents with confidence.

The BMC Concept

Confidence Inspiring
The beefy headtube, downtube, chainstays and fork crown are the solid foundation of this frame. Together with the stable geometry, this bike will always go where you want it to.

 

Vertical Compliance
For the granfondo GF01, we bring TCC to a new level. Tuned specifically for the endurance segment with the Angle Compliance features, this bike absorbs a wider range of hits and vibrations than the already class-leading teammachine SLR01 without influencing your pedaling. Designed around and specified with 28mm tires, this bike lets you tackle the roughest roads with ease.
Ease of use
With the integrated chain catcher, durable tires and hassle-free components, this bike will take you for thousands of kilometers without interruptions. Spend less time in the workshop and more on your bike!
Ergonomics
The endurance fit geometry and carefully chosen saddle and handlebar make your ride relaxed. Even after hours of riding you feel powerful. Come home from your ride with a smile instead of a grimace and enjoy the rest of the day.
