BMC TIMEMACHINE - BUILT BY SPEED - Outsmart physics
You’re not looking for any ordinary bike. You’re looking for the fastest bike ever. With perfected aero geometry and class-leading integration, the Timemachine ROAD ushers in a new era of speed.
TIMEMACHINE ROAD 01
Aero is Everything
The Timemachine Road has been sculpted so that you can drop the opposition. Every aspect of this pioneering bike makes you scythe through the air faster: from the meticulously engineered tube shapes of the Aerodynamic 01 Premium Carbon frame through to its total class-leading integration. The ICS Aero stem and bars are a defining component of the fastest BMC road bike to date, along with the all-new Aero Module. This is aerodynamics at its finest and most functional for the rider who wants to go faster.
STAY AHEAD OF TIME
Pure speed doesn't have to be impractical
With a dedicated focus on triathlons and time trials, the Timemachine 01 frame is engineered using our SubA concept, which emphasizes aero tube shaping, cable integration, and versatile position-specific componentry. For added ease, we've designed the cockpit to disassemble easily, making traveling simple
Years of studying the needs of multi-sport athletes, combined with repeated aerodynamic refinements, have made the Timemachine the new benchmark for triathlon-specific equipment. With superior tube shaping, maximum component integration, and an extensive rider positioning system, the all-new Timemachine is tailor-made for triathletes.
Tuned for triathlons
The Timemachine 02, developed in collaboration with aerodynamics experts provides unmatched speed and stability in crosswinds. The 02 features a traditional aero fork, internal cable routing, rear storage box and integrated fuel options for the high-performance athlete. From Kona to your local time trial, it's built to beat the clock.
TIMEMACHINE 01 DISC
Going fast calls for stopping fast
We took all the key features found in our class-leading Timemachine, such as unrivalled adjustability and component integration, and added the new industry standard of disc brakes. The Timemachine 01 Disc offers improved handling and control on the most technically demanding courses, giving you yet another advantage over the clock. Trust us, we did our research.
VMAX – BEAT THE ENEMY
BETWEEN A CYCLIST AND HIS FASTEST TIME TRIAL LIES ONE FIERCE OPPONENT – AIR.
Every cyclist fights it, since drag increases with the square of speed. It is the primordial reason behind the never ending battle of riders and bike engineers trying to cheat mother nature. But we found a way:
- Maximum velocity - The maximum rate at which someone or something is able to move or operate.
- Position-to-Perform - Providing riders with cockpit adjustability for creating sustainable aerodynamic positions.
- Integrated aerodynamics system - Leading to optimum performance in any wind condition.
OPTIMIZED AERO DESIGNS AND CABLE AND COMPONENT INTEGRATION ARE KEY INGREDIENTS TO MAKING A BIKE AERODYNAMIC, WHILE THE ADJUSTABILITY OF BARS, PADS AND SADDLE POSITIONS ARE KEY TO ENSURING THAT YOU MAINTAIN YOUR POSITION FOR THE COMPLETE DURATION OF YOUR RACE. SO THE ONLY DOUBTS ON CROSSING THE FINISH LINE ARE HOW YOUR LEGS, YOUR LUNGS, AND YOUR MIND PERFORMED.
A slippery-fast frame is always a good start – but adding a versatile, aerodynamic positioning system for the rider breaks records.The Timemachine’s refined Position-to-Perform (P2P) system lets athletes find their ideal contact points without sacrificing aerodynamics, no matter how aggressive or conservative the front-end or saddle position is.
SubA refers to the maximization of aerodynamic efficiency through minimizing exposure to wind. This is achieved through the optimization of three core features; aerodynamically optimized tube shapes, high levels of integration, and rider position-specific components.
AERODYNAMICALLY OPTIMIZED TUBE SHAPES
Following a three-year partnership with Sauber Engineering, a newly revised SubA concept summarizes our aerodynamic advantages: tubes with truncated profiles, crosswind-stable tube shapes and a super-lean frontal area.
The full integration of cabling, a frame concept that takes storage solutions heavily into account and our hinge fork design (integrating brakes) all play a huge part in achieving absolute minimal exposure to wind.
RIDER POSITION SPECIFIC
On longer efforts or when the bike leg precedes a run, riders tend to take a less aggressive position. We have developed solutions like the V-Cockpit and the Flat Cockpit to deliver optimal aerodynamic performance to all riders regardless of individual Pad Stack preferences.
INTEGRATED COCKPIT SYSTEM
We strive to be at the forefront of design through innovative solutions that prioritize functional integration to provide significant benefits for the rider. The Integrated Cockpit System technology is probably the best example of this philosophy, a proprietary system that provides stealth cable routing from handlebar to rear axle without compromising fit and adjustability. A leading solution and bike industry-first, ICS technology combines form and function for the most advanced cockpit design in the market, enabling us to set new standards in frame design. ICS Technology is available on selected platforms throughout the BMC product line to offer the benefits of functional integration to a broad range of rider profiles.
The new ICS Aero cockpit is the most current application of ICS technology. Designed to minimize drag, this cockpit boasts an elevated aero performance, uncompromised adjustability and peerless ease of service. This iteration of ICS features a minimal frontal surface area and totally internal stealth cable routing. Due to its standard 2-piece construction, there are no limitations to functionality or fit; riders can quickly adjust stem and bar lengths with various options available.
ICS AERO BAR
A dedicated aero bar designed to create a minimal frontal surface area to reduce aerodynamic drag.
• Ergonomic aero top shape
• Minimal Leading Edge
• Ample wrist clearance on the drops
• 3 widths: 400/420/440mm
• 66mm reach, 125mm drop, 2.5˚ flar
(ICS Aero Bar - Compatible with ICS Aero stem only)
ICS AERO STEM
Aerodynamically optimized ICS technology stem, designed for minimal frontal surface and increased compliance.
• Aero shape reduces drag and improves compliance
• Available in 4 lengths: 100, 110, 120, 130mm
• -15˚ angle • High Top Cone + Low Top Cone options

• Faceplate compatible with computer mounts using the GoPro interface
(ICS Aero Stem Compatible with ICS Aero bar only)
The ICS Stem is offered in five lengths (90, 100, 110, 120, & 130mm) to enable riders to create their ideal riding position. The cable clamp and cable cover system have been designed to prevent unnecessary complications with installation, adjustment or servicing and provide safekeeping for electronic cables and hydraulic housing.
ICS Stem is designed for complete stack and reach adjustability A range of stem lentghs and a dedicated spacer system with interlocking elements allows easy stack and reach adjustment without stem removal and hydraulic cables disconnection.
