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.

Tubes aéro optimisés

Après trois ans de partenariat avec de experts de l’aérodynamique, notre nouveau concept d’aérodynamisme Vmax se résume ainsi : tubes au profil tronqué, formes étudiées pour un vent latéral, fourche aéro, surface frontale fine et intégration intelligente.

Intégration

L’intégration complète de la câblerie, un concept de cadre qui tient compte des solutions de rangement et une fourche « hinge » (déportée) avec freins intégrés jouent un rôle prépondérant pour une exposition minimale au vent.

Composants pour une position idéale

Lors d’un effort de longue durée ou lorsque la section vélo est suivie par une course à pieds, les cyclistes ont tendance à adopter une position moins agressive. Nous avons donc développé deux guidons, le V-Cockpit et le Flat Cockpit, pour accommoder tous les cyclistes, quelle que soit leur position de prédilection.

Optimized for Speed

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

FAQ

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.
