alpenchallenge AC02 mountainroad

Choose versatility

First introduced to the Swiss market as part of our 2000 model-year line, the original BMC Alpen Challenge quickly became a local legend of urban cycling. In the years since, our first, fast urban bike design evolved into the more versatile alpenchallenge AC02, an extraordinary bike built to face the ordinary challenges of daily life. It combines the speed of a road bike with a mountain bike's heads-up position and controls. The AC02 is designed to be easily equipped with convenient accessories to make every day riding easier.

Versatility: Geometry and component specification are carefully selected so that the alpenchallenge can be ridden almost anywhere. The position is comfortable enough for long rides and the gearing deliberately chosen to help conquer the steepest climbs. The frame accepts a wide range of accessories, as well as being compatible with all three wheel sizes common on modern bicycles.

Reliability: Not having to constantly adjust and maintain your bike helps you enjoy more time riding, and spend less of it in the workshop or stopped by the side of the road. Our frame uses proven technical solutions, and we build it with dependable yet light parts such as fast-rolling tires and wheels with Shimano drive trains and brakes.
