The BMC Timemachine TM02 105 Double 2013 Triathlon Bike provides high tech aero performance. The Timemachine TM02 shares most of the TM01's revolutionary technologies. The SubA concept reduces drag to a minimum by the use of tripwire technology and truncated profiles. The P2P seatpost offers a huge adjustment range that makes sure you find your perfect position. Same as with the TM01, a high level of integration takes components out of the wind and into the frame.
The aerodynamics of the rider and the bike are influenced both by the position of the rider on the bike and by the aerodynamics of the bike itself. subA refers to the maximization of the aerodynamics by minimizing the frontal area of the bike. This is generated by three core features: Tear drop 3:1 - In accordance with the UCI guidelines, the frame shape is formed aerodynamically in a length to width ratio of 3:1.Truncated profile - Instead of continuing the surface in a teardrop shape, a straight break-away edge is worked into the profile. The turbulence can be managed and controlled by this. The minimized raw materials also reduce the weight and increase the stiffness of the frame due to the edge. Tripwire - Tripwire is the ''tripwire for the air'', originally an achievement from aeronautics: special wind curbs are molded into the carbon frame so that the slightest turbulence is created directly above the surface. A sort of air cushion forms for the wind flow.
