BMC SLR01 Road Bike
The low seatstay and split top tube of the BMC SLR01 are the most obvious departures from typical frame design and they allow a slight flex in the frame to absorb road vibration and make the longest races more comfortable for the rider. The next innovation is the hexagonal and octagonal shapes of the frame tubes which allow them to flex vertically but increase stiffness laterally for optimal transfer of pedaling energy. Of course, the SLR01 comes with all the expected features of an elite racing bike like internal cable routing, electronic drivetrain compatibility, and some of the highest performing components available. As far as responsive and efficient bikes go, BMC is a good distance ahead of the competition and with their SLR01 road bike, they will certainly stay there.
