teamelite TE02 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

Lightweight: With the teamelite TE02, we used a more economical carbon construction to create a more affordable version of our ultra-light TE01. Still the TE02 is one of the lightest all carbon hardtail 29er frames out there. Torsional and lateral stiffness are kept at a very high level to provide superior responsiveness and steering precision. The little you give up in terms of weight when compared to the TE01 you more than make up for in savings and performance advantage over the competition.

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: Vertical compliance and comfort result from BMC’s TCC (Tuned Compliance Concept). Shapes, materials and carbon fiber lay-up have been carefully selected so the frame and seat post work together to absorb small bumps and chattering surfaces, while at the same time maximizing lateral stiffness. Stiff and massively oversized chain stays immediately translate leg force into forward momentum, while a low stack height allows for a more race-oriented position.The bike is stiff for energy transmission, yet comfortable for energy conservation. The result is remarkable efficiency for bike and rider.

BWC

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.

TCC

tuned compliance concept

BMC's tuned compliance concept (TCC)

Optimized ride qualities in carbon products thanks to BMC's Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC).

With a neat combination of different carbon fibers and their alignment, and by applying stepped tube profiles, we achieve increased vertical compliance while maintaining high levels of lateral and torsional stiffness. The TCC zones on the frame, fork and seatpost boost the comfort rating noticeably. TCC significantly improves the ride experience by slowing the onset of rider fatigue and through precision handling and efficient power transmission.

System integration

natural born postmount

Brake mount is directly bolted to the rear triangle.

Direct assembly of the brake caliper to the frame with no need for an adapter means improved braking power transfer, especially under demanding conditions.
