fourstroke FS02 29 XC

Our fourstroke has always been a race bike, built with potential to be a lot more. 29 inch wheels make this latest iteration more capable than ever before.


Racers looking for efficiency and responsiveness will not be disappointed, and it is also the perfect tool for all day mountain bikers riding challenging terrain. Uphill or downhill, the fourstroke simply got faster.

The geometry is built around the BWC (Big Wheel Concept). A longer top tube and slacker head angle, in combination with wide handlebars, make the handling stable and comfortable. Short chain stays, low bottom bracket and a short stem complete the concept by keeping the bike lively.

The FS02 combines the carbon front triangle from our flagship model with an economical aluminium rear triangle. Being nearly as light as FS01, it provides full fourstroke performance at more affordable price point. Our APS suspension, specially refined for big wheels in conjunction with the BWC, provides the perfect balance of comfort, control and efficiency.

The combination of big wheels, stable geometry and APS suspension makes the bike capable of overcoming any obstacle. High torsional stiffness improves steering precision and boosts confidence.

integrated skeleton concept

BMC has defined its brand name through technical advances.

The skeleton concept iSC (integrated Skeleton Concept) has been around since the first legendary promachine. Since then, the concept has spent over a decade being refined and redefined. The idea is saving weight by supporting the top tube at the seat tube and increasing the stiffness where it is needed. In the front triangle of the frame. With the help of the latest in FEM (Finite Elements Method) computer technology, we can tailor each tube junction perfectly to the distribution of forces. Cleverly selected skeletal reinforcement elements at the nodal points and the spread of the top tube distribute the impacting forces perfectly and result in BMC's typical crosslock. distribute the impacting forces perfectly.


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.



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.

initial load indicator

Remarkably simple sag adjustment.

Just set the sag adjustment according to the indicator, and go. Trailside adjustments have never been simpler.
