granfondo GF01 endurance

The granfondo is built by BMC for the Spring Classics, but the same features that make it perfect on those races smooth out the road ahead of you, no matter where or how long you're riding. Vertical compliance, stable handling, immediate power transfer and reliability are factors necessary to succeed in the northern races but they’re also on top of the wish list of any recreational rider. Sure, the granfondo reduces the suffering of the pros in Paris Roubaix, the “Hell of the North”, but it also enhances the riding experience for us mere mortals.

Confidence Inspiring: Thanks to the tapered 1-1/8 to 1 1/2-inch steerer tube, oversized down tube, and massive chain stays, the bike corners like it is on rails, going exactly where you pilot it without any fuss or hesitation. Naturally, it converts every ounce of pedal pressure into forward acceleration. The full carbon frame of the GF01 weighs just over 1000g, so the bike is light enough to tackle even the longest and steepest climbs with confidence.

Vertical Compliance: Our Tuned Compliance Concept is enhanced with our Angle Compliance System to add lots of vertical give thanks to the cantilevered rear dropouts and pre-flexed, flattened seat stays--take a look at the curve by the rear brake--and the added rake on the fork. Our proprietary seat post, which is designed to flex in response to upwards force, is also part of the compliance system. Designed around and specified with 28 mm tires this bike lets you tackle the roughest roads with remarkable ease.

Ease of use: With the integrated chain catcher, durable tires, and hassle-free components this bike will take you for thousands of kilometres without interruptions. Spend less time in the workshop, more on your bike!

Ergonomics: The endurance geometry has been optimized for riding long distances on rough roads. This means the bike is very stable, with a greater bottom bracket drop and slightly more laid-back head tube angle. Carefully selected cockpit components and saddle take the sting out of the road and make sure you come back from the ride with a smile on your face to enjoy the rest of the day.

Future-Proof: With our DTi (dual transmission integration), the granfondo GF01 offers clean cable routing for both Di2 and mechanical drivetrains. You want to upgrade your bike to the latest drivetrain technology? No problem with DTi.

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.


Dual Transmission integration

Our frames are future proof.

Our frames are future proof. With a growing selection of electronic groupsets, electronic shifting is becoming more popular and affordable. For this reason, all our new road frames are compatible with electronic shifting. You want to update to the latest high end technology? No problem with a BMC frame. Even our entry level Granfondo GF02 bike is compatible with Di2.

DTi leaves you total freedom in your choice of groupsets. The one frame is cleverly designed to accept every transmission possibility; electronic or mechanical transmission. That is Dual Transmission integration. You have clean cable routing with mechanical shifting, but if you switch to Di2 no unnecessary cable stops are left, all the holes are in the right place for minimal exposed electronic cables and a clean look.
