In response, our engineers outdid themselves and developed our proprietary ACE Technology. With this, they accelerated the design and engineering process and developed 34,000 virtual prototypes in just one year. The end result is the Teammachine SLR – offering the world‘s finest balance of lightweight, stiffness and compliance.
ACE Accelerated Composites Evolution Technology
In 2011 we set out to advance our first-generation teammachine design. We soon realized that relying on human trial and error alone to improve a race bike of this caliber simply wasnt going to cut it. Collaborating with experts in the field, we developed ACE, or Accelerated Composites Evolution Technology. Replacing traditional prototyping processes, the iterative, computer-modelling program produced more than 34,000 possible frame configurations in just one year. This information enables us to virtually optimize geometrical structure, cross-sections and carbon fiber lay-ups to ensure that any physical prototypes produced are as close to the finished product as possible, thus reducing development time by light years.
Dual Transmission Integration
Rider’s choice – Aesthetics should not be an afterthought – DTi allows BMC frames to look like the precision machines we designed them to be, regardless of drivetrain variations.
