BMC Roadracer SL01/Shimano 105 Complete Bike $0.00
More speed for less coin
Let's face it, we all love halo bikes. But, while Gilbert and Evans will be riding a limitless supply of SLR01s this season, some of us actually have to pay for our own bikes. That's why BMC designed the Roadracer SL01/Shimano 105 Complete Bike. With the SL01, you get many of the same top-tier characteristics of the SLR01, like internal routing, the aerodynamic, Integrated Skeleton Concept design, and a carbon layup that's to die for. Round it all off with the durable and precise Shimano 105 component group, and you have a race-worthy pedigree at a criterium racer's price.
BMC uses the latest carbon manufacturing processes to fine tune the Road Racer SL01's tubing into weight, strength, and aerodynamically optimized profiles. These minute modifications allow stiffness where it's needed, without causing the Road Racer to ride like a spine-jarring jackhammer. Take a look at the down tube and seat tube. At the bottom bracket junction, they're as wide as possible. Ditto with the chainstays where they connect to the bottom bracket, they're as tall as the shell -- it'd be impossible to go any larger. Toss a leg over this BMC and expect to feel race-winning power transfer.
The Road Racer SL01 employs BMC's Integrated Skeleton Concept (ISC) where the seat stays join the seat and top tubes in a distinctive manner. Aside from screaming 'BMC' in a peloton, this design ensures that road shock is transferred into the axis of the top tube, sending stress to the strongest part of the frame -- the streamlined head tube. Here, a tapered, integrated headset houses an oversized lower bearing for the compliant, yet stiff BMC SE48 SL TP carbon fork to spin around. This combination gives the Road Racer SL01 excellent steering precision for confident tracking through fast corners.
The Road Racer SL01 has been paired with a complete Shimano 105 component group. This includes a 50/34 compact crankset and a 12/25t cassette. Other details include Easton's EA30 alloy handlebar with EA70 stem and a Fizik Ardea saddle. You'll also get the Mavic Aksium wheelset cased in the Mavic Aksium 700c x 23mm folding clincher tires. Combined, this wheelset is stout enough for everyday training, but aero and light enough for race day. If you're looking for a serious race bike to get you through multiple seasons of racing, the Road Racer is the obvious choice.
The BMC Roadracer SL01/Shimano 105 Complete Bike is available in the color Red and in the sizes, 48, 51, and 54cm.
