granfondo GF02 endurance

The original granfondo GF1 was originally developed with the BMC Racing Team, but its ergonomic geometry, high vertical compliance and stable handling address the direct needs of any discerning long-distance cyclist.

The GF02 was designed for those wanting the performance and distinct ride quality of the granfondo GF01 in a more economical package. The GF02 was designed using BMC's Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC) and utilizes the GF01's exacting geometry. The GF02's frame is still full carbon fiber, and is equipped with standard Shimano rim brakes. Ultimately, the GF02's endurance-fit geometry and carefully selected components help you get the most out of every long ride.

Concept

Comfortable: BMC’s Tuned Compliance Concept is further enhanced with the Angle Compliance system. Optimized Carbon fiber layups and tube shapes are combined with cantilevered rear dropouts, flexible, flattened seat stays, and the added rake on the fork. From the first pedal stroke you will notice how comfortable it is. Our proprietary seatpost, which is designed to flex in response to upward force, is also part of the compliance system.


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 is renowned for its stability on descents. Designed to take up to 28mm tires, the granfondo lets you tackle the roughest, bumpiest roads with ease

Ergonomics: The granfondo’s geometry has been optimized for riding long distances on all kinds of roads. It is very stable with a greater bottom bracket drop and a laid-back head tube angle enabling a more relaxed and upright seating position.

On-trend:
Keep your bike on the road, and not in the workshop. With an integrated chain catcher, durable tires, and a well-rounded choice of components, this bike will take you thousands of kilometers with little need for maintenance.

Upgrade your bike to the latest drivetrain technology with DTi (dual transmission integration).

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.

DTi

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.
