Pro Bike: BMC SLC01 Pro Machine

Abstract:
BMC claims its Pro Machine is the first carbon frame in the world to use Easton carbon nanotube-reinforced resins throughout, an ingredient that supposedly adds toughness and rigidity. Carbon is used almost exclusively throughout the frame, including the rear dropouts, integrated headset bearing seats, built-in seatpost clamp and even the moulded-in housing stops.

The Pro Machine is also distinctive for its unique Integrated Skeleton Concept shaping around the top of the seat tube which is easily spotted from quite a distance. According to BMC, ISC allows its designers to more finely tune how forces are distributed through the frame compared to traditional joints.
