2015 Bike Highlight: BMC Granfondo GF02 Ultegra

BMC Switzerland Granfondo GF02 Ultegra Turn every ride into a Classic 


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.

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 syste

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 Retail $3499.00

Brand New 2015 Kask Protone Helmet - Aero, Adjustable, Vented Helmet

Highly Adjustable, Cool and Comfortable Helmet With Impressive Aerodynamics


From the front it looks like a conventional road helmet, while the rear resembles a road aero lid, with covered upper section and rounded tail.

The Protone has eight vents on the front – the center five being split in two by a central plastic shelf – and six on the back, where there's also a reflective strip. It's also the first helmet to feature the new Kask logo.



Kask's Octo Fit adjustment system is great and very simple to tweak. The arms of the cradle fasten to the inside of the helmet's expanded polystyrene body at your temples and again at the rear where you get a generous amount of height adjustment.


The tightness of the fit is adjusted via a clicky dial at the back and you can alter the sideways position of those occipital pads independently so they sit in the most comfortable place. The overall result is that you can get a secure fit in no time at all.

The Kask Protone has been designed using computational fluid dynamics software to have one of the lowest drag coefficients of any ventilated helmet.



Internally, the 5mm-thick 3D Dry multilayer open cell padding is antimicrobial treated, and perforated to reduce skin contact, with a CoolMax pad at the front. It all wicks sweat effectively, but even on hot days is superbly ventilated by the phenomenal airflow drawn through the eight forward facing vents; no subtle, compromised waft, but several jets of air channelled evenly across the head to six large exit ports.


The Protone was designed to maintain aerodynamics and airflow in any common riding position, and however you move your head, it remains consistent. We can’t verify aero performance, but with many helmets, dipping or turning your head creates an obvious increase in wind noise, whereas the Protone is incredibly quiet and unobtrusive, and just feels fast.

2016 BMC Team Elite 01 - Compliance and Confidence On A Whole New Level

The 2016 BMC Team Elite 01 is the Revolution You've Been Waiting For


Every year bike companies do their best to produce a new model of bicycle that is better than the last. Many times, though, the end result is simply a slightly different head angle or a flashy new paint job. As per usual, BMC is ahead of the pack. For the 2016 Team Elite 01 they have combined efficiency, traction, and compliance technology while still maintaining a light weight and keeping it super fast.

The research team at BMC has obviously been hard at work, and the fruits of their labor are apparent.

"The high-performance discipline of cross-country racing has become, quite literally, a race to the top. Grueling, all-out sprints to the finish are supported with bikes whose maximum efficiency and minimum weight ethos pay no heed to compliance - until now."

Check out some of the technologies that make this bike so amazing:

Micro Travel Technology

BMC’s Micro Travel Technology (MTT) is the evolution of several generations of advanced cross-country weaponry. With this new system, cross-country racers can ditch the common practice of manipulating tire pressure to gain more compliance for technical descents. MTT’s damping and additional frame compliance smoothes out the ride, letting riders apply more power to gain that elusive differentiator; speed.

The progressive composite engineers of the Impec Advanced R&D Lab spent two years developing and perfecting the function and performance of the system. Simply adding compliance to the rear end of the bike was not sufficient – but to do so without loss of drivetrain efficiency, torsional rigidity, or steering responsiveness was near rocket-science. The end results are icing on the cake; virtually no weight penalty and incredibly low maintenance. Micro-Travel Technology function is the result of the engineered performance of the chainstays and seatstays through complex carbon layups and the dual-guide, integrated XCell damper.


Advanced Carbon Technology

Advanced tube shapes of the seatstay and chainstay, and carbon material type and layup bring incredible performance for technically demanding trail conditions.








Dual-Guide Design

XC racing success demands high pedaling efficiency and aggressive steering performance. The MTT system relies on a dual-guide design to promote torsional and lateral stiffness.








Developed in its Swiss-based IMPEC facility, the bike came about when their team riders, including current world champion Julien Absalon, asked if the existing bike could be made more compliant in order to stave off fatigue. After rig testing the existing frame and looking at their carbon layups, BMC's engineering team realised the simplest solution was simply to cut a section out of the seatstay of the Teamelite frame. 

They rapidly prototyped a number of different designs to prove the concept before ending up with this production bike, but it’s more than a cut and paste job. The final bike uses very different chain- and seatstay profiles in order to direct the flex without affecting the fatigue life of the bike. They took the new frame off the fatigue-testing rig after no failure or change of response after two million cycles (the standard test is 100,000 cycles).
