The BMC Teammachine SLR01 Dura Ace Di2 Compact 2013 Road Bike is a World Champion and Grand Tour Winner. Time and again the BMC SLR01 has proven its merits. Not only did Cadel Evans win the 2011 Tour de France on the SLR01, but Philippe Gilbert won the 2012 World Championships on it as well. Lightweight, stiff, and agile, the SLR01 gives you the confidence to power up climbs and attack descents. BMC's Tuned Compliance Concept, or TCC, ensures that you remain comfortable and fresh, especially during the final moments of a race. So, if you want to launch a surprise assault on the Cauberg after 265km to win the World Championship, the BMC SLR01 is the bike you want.
Shimano's Di2 electronic gear shift system enables riders to shift gears with electronic shifters rather than conventional control levers. This system permits gear shifts that are faster than a mechanical system. Di2 is not affected by stretched or worn cables and the smoothness of electronic shifts can reduce shock on drivetrain components. It allows for an accurate and effortless shift.
