Vmax – Maximum Velocity

Between a cyclist and his fastest time trial lies one fierce opponent – air.

Vmax = P2P x subA

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:

Vmax - Maximum velocity:
The maximum rate at which someone or something is able to move or operate.

P2P - Position-to-Perform:
Providing riders with cockpit adjustability for creating sustainable aerodynamic positions. A slippery-fast frame is always a good start but adding a versatile, aerodynamic positioning system, breaks records. The Timemachine’s refined Position-to-Perform (p2p) system allows athletes to find their ideal contact points without sacrificing aerodynamics; no matter how aggressive or conservative the front-end or saddle position is.

subA - Integrated aerodynamics system:
Leading to optimum performance in any wind condition. 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.

Aerodynamic Design

Optimized aero designs and cable-component integration are key ingredients in making a bike aerodynamic, while the adjustability of bars, pads and saddle positions ensure that you maintain your position for the complete duration of your race.

Formas de tubo aerodinámicamente optimizadas

Tras tres años de asociación con expertos en aerodinámica, el mejorado concepto SubA resume nuestras ventajas aerodinámicas: tubos con perfiles aerodinámicos, formas de tubo estables ante el viento lateral y un área frontal minimizada.

Integración

La integración completa del cableado, un concepto de cuadro que toma muy en cuenta las soluciones de almacenamiento y nuestro diseño de horquilla de tipo bisagra (que integra los frenos) juegan un papel muy importante para lograr una exposición mínima total al viento.

Componentes específicos para la posición del ciclista

En esfuerzos más prolongados, o cuando el tramo de ciclismo precede a una carrera, los ciclistas tienden a adoptar una posición menos agresiva. Hemos desarrollado soluciones como el V-Cockpit y el Flat Cockpit para ofrecer un rendimiento aerodinámico óptimo para todos los ciclistas, más allá de las preferencias individuales de posicionamiento.

Optimized for Speed

For ultimate speed and efficiency, look no further. BMC’s aerodynamically optimized bikes are perfectly integrated and ultra-adjustable.

FAQs

We have gathered a list of the most frequent questions we get regarding Vmax.

P2P (Position to Perform) is a brand-new program focused on the individual needs of riders. Customers have the option to choose their favourite cockpit configuration on selected modules and complete bikes.

In selected modules, customer have the option to chose their preferred cockpit (style and fit) as well as seatpost offset. On selected complete bikes, customers can configure the cockpit size.
Topcones and spacer configurations are included in the shipment and automatically selected based on the stem or cockpit configuration.
