TECHNOLOGY 

APS – Advanced Pivot System

A well-designed full suspension bike offers the control and confidence to ride a trail without hesitation. Ideal suspension systems maximize pedaling efficiency without compromising the ability to soak up the bumps. BMC's solution is the Advanced Pivot System (APS) which optimizes kinematics and pivot placements, leverage ratios, axle paths and shock dimensions. Iterative calculations fine-tune all the suspension properties of each of our distinctive full-suspension models to achieve the best ride characteristics for any terrain. The result is a light, stiff and compact structure that promotes excellent control and energy transfer for the rider.

When accelerating, an inertial force is generated which attempts to compress the shock system. BMC's APS solution counteracts this effect. It carefully calculates the pivot points of the rear suspension so that inertial force generated under acceleration is not misdirected into compressing the shock, instead, the chain tension compensates for this effect. As a result, all the pedal power is used for propulsion without any loss of energy through the suspension. The shock system ensures optimum traction, and therefore ensures that power is transferred to the ground.

BMC's solution to finding the optimal pivot placement, APS achieves this through iterative calculations in order to fine-tune such suspension characteristics as leverage ratio, axle path, and the amount of kickback. The unified rear triangle is linked to the main frame by two short links, with the upper link actuating the shock. The result is a light, stiff and compact structure. Impacts are absorbed by the shock system, providing excellent comfort for the rider. Another example of BMC's forward-thinking cycling solutions from the Impec R&D Lab and the efforts we go to put the rider in the middle of the equation, the advanced pivot system offers the rider the perfect combination of efficiency, traction, and comfort.
  • Traction - To achieve just the right amount of travel for each of BMC's distinct models they optimized the leverage ratio, ensuring the optimal balance between progression and small bump sensitivity.
  • Control - Low suspension ratio means greater oil flow and energy dissipation. Pick your line and let the bike do the rest. 
  • EfficiencyThere is a lot to be said for keeping the rubber side down. With less time in the air you cover ground faster.

BWC – Big Wheel Concept

Winning performances are much more than just a tire size,– it’s how wheels are integrated into a complete bike. BMC's Big Wheel Concept maximizes the rolling benefits of 29” wheel sizes and maintains a playful and nimble feel through purposeful geometry and cockpit tweaks. Low bottom bracket and short chainstays promote excellent traction and control while a roomy toptube and short stem promote a confident rider position. BWC focuses on the elements that transfer the benefits of big wheels onto the trails.

  • Greater agility - Cornering becomes instinctive, not just a reaction – as you lean in the bike moves with you.
  • Increased stability - Both wheels on the ground – letting you take more risks and of course, go faster.

BWC Geometry

 The unknown demands of trail riding require a maneuverable machine that inspires confidence when you scream down high-speed descents. A long top tube, slack head tube angle and a wide bar paired with short stem and chainstays is BMC's recipe for making big wheels roll fast and turn easily. The entire Speedfox family is built upon this super progressive trail geometry - adventure-ready from the first ride. 

Integrated 

BMC believes off-road bikes are deserving of the classic ‘showpiece’ designation that bike lovers admire. BMC's engineers worked magic by making the Speedfox one of the most adaptable frame platforms. A trail bike with legendary aesthetics. 

Versatile

BMC's Advanced Pivot System (APS) for the Speedfox family is focused on reducing rider fatigue and elevating bike control. Riders who leave the trailhead with no agenda want a rig prepared for anything. The Speedfox blend delivers just that; a mix of efficient climbing, nimble cornering and confidence on high-speed descents.
