fourstroke FS02 29 crosscountry


More than a race bike


Endowed with stable geometry, high torsional stiffness and Advanced Pivot System (APS) suspension, the confidence-inspiring fourstroke FS01 is the ultimate race trail whip. It eats up challenging XCO terrain, yet readily covers the marathon distance as well. Any trail, anywhere in the world — don’t ever back down, just ride on.

Efficient: The fourstroke FS02 is designed as a more accessible version of our FS01. The carbon front triangle is matched with a hydroformed, triple-butted aluminum rear end, which manages to keep the same level of stiffness as the full carbon version for a slight weight addition.
Our Advanced Pivot System (APS) suspension, specifically designed in conjunction with our Big Wheel Concept (BWC), provides the perfect balance of comfort, control and efficiency.

Fast: Whether in full carbon or an aluminum guise, BMC's Big Wheel Concept (BWC) geometry rolls smoother and faster— giving the bike an agile and nimble feel, letting you effortlessly pick your way through steep, technical single tracks. For high speeds, the bike's low bottom bracket, long top tube, and relaxed head angle work together to keep the bike stable and its rider confident on the roughest trails.

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.


advanced pivot system

Unsurpassed power transmission, traction control, and comfort.

The ideal suspension system converts all of a rider's energy into forward propulsion, while at the same time absorbing impacts. Mechanically, these two goals are at odds with one another. But BMC's APS rear suspension satisfies these two goals by carefully calculating the pivot points of the rear suspension so that inertial force generated under acceleration is not misdirected into compressing the shock.

How is this accomplished? With APS the virtual pivot point is positioned so that constant chain tension is maintained for forward acceleration. As such, pedaling forces are used for forward propulsion with no loss of energy transfer in the suspension system. At the same time, the shock system ensures optimum rear wheel traction, guaranteeing that those pedaling forces are not only getting to the rear wheel, but to the ground, as well. The end result is a suspension system that provides extreme power transfer efficiency, uncanny traction, and excellent comfort.
