New Teammachine ALR Series from BMC

The all-new Teammachine ALR01 road series delivers BMC’s Swiss, Premium, Performance values to cyclists that have long-dreamed of owning a BMC. The triple-butted, hydro-formed, TCC frame inherits a beautiful, traditional road geometry with nothing short of brilliant acceleration, while its full carbon fork delivers a compliant front end and excellent handling. Just a few pedal strokes is all it takes to appreciate the premium frame design and construction of the Teammachine ALR01.

Top-shelf Experience

According to Andrew James, BMC Switzerland Road Product Manager “Every rider appreciates snappy acceleration, brilliant power transfer and crisp handling, regardless of their investment in the sport. BMC’s retail network has been asking for a way to introduce their new riders to the BMC brand for the past few years – this began with the 2015 Teammachine SLR03 and now we are introducing the Teammachine ALR01 series. With this, we aim to deliver the experience riders have come to expect from BMC‘s top-shelf positioning.”
