Power up the climbs, effortlessly carve down tricky descents. Then sprint to the finish line. This is what cross-country racing is all about. Riding hard and riding fast. The BMC Teamelite TE01 29er XTR 2014 Mountain Bike is the one full carbon, hardtail mountain bike that combines feathery weight, vertical compliance and surgical handling. The big wheels are efficient going uphill, providing remarkable traction and momentum, while BMC BWC geometry enhances cornering and our proven TCC carbon technology smooth's out the rough stuff. It's a simple formula: Confidence + Efficiency = Faster riding. BMC's teamelite TE01 cross country racing bike is testament to our engineers ingenuity, and our racing Team's input.
Lightweight: Getting under 1000g for the frame was but one goal of our BMC engineers with the teamelite TE01. BMC wanted a World Cup-ready frame that is more feathery than even the lightest climbers, but it also had to efficiently transfer power from the pedal to the ground. It had to offer all that, and equally handle tight singletrack and high-speed descents with ease. This design program was hard to satisfy, but one ride on the teamelite TE01 proves that we succeeded where others have not.
