The new BMC Timemachine 01 was developed around three key elements for triathletes: fit, form and function. The new V cockpit was created to optimize aerodynamics when using higher pad heights. A flat bar is an option, but only on frame sets. The seat post has four hole placement options to offer plenty of adjustment. A rear storage box and multiple bottle placement options mean you can bring the necessary items like tubes and CO2 but still be aero.

Available now, the prices range from 10,999 euros when built with SRAM eTap, 8499 euros for a Shimano Ultegra Di2 build and 6,999 euros for frames.
