The TM01 is BMC’s ultimate speed weapon, designed for one purpose; to travel as fast as possible. The bike boasts great pedigree as well, ridden to Tour de France victory by Cadel Evans on the penultimate day of the 2011 Tour, and in its first triathlon outing Andreas Raelert set an Ironman bike split world record.
The TM01 achieves its super aero status utilizing BMC’s ‘SubA’ concept and ‘Tripwire’ technology which produces optimal airflow along the tubing. The airfoil, straight breakaway edge tubing helps keep the weight down by using less material and the additional two edges also provide greater stiffness.
Not neglecting the importance of fit, BMC introduced their P2P principal which allows the rider to find the optimal position. Utilising their unique multi-adjustable Tri Angle Concept stem providing a total of 32 possible configurations, coupled with 21mm of backward and fore movement in the saddle, you’re sure to find your position to perform.
Coupled with Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 electronic gear shift system for fast, accurate and effortless shifting, and Mavic’s Ksyrium wheelset help make this one of our ultimate tri bikes.
The TM01 is also available with standard cabled Shimano Ultegra for £4,000 and there is a Dura Ace Di2 spec model featuring Zipp Firecrest 808 wheels for £10,000.
Similar by name and similar in nature to its big brother, the TM02 provides high tech aero performance at a more affordable price point. The Timemachine TM02 features trickle-down technologies such as the drag reducing SubA concept which utilises tripwire technology and truncated profiles for advanced aerodynamics, whilst a high level of integration takes components out of the wind and into the frame. The TM02 also gets BMC’s P2P seatpost for a wide range of adjustments so you can find your true leg-saving triathlon position on the bike.
This model comes with Shimano’s extremely popular Ultegra groupset, with high-end Dura Ace shifters for precise gear changes in the aero position. The Mavic Aksium wheels are a good all rounder, and leave way for your own choice of race wheels should you wish to upgrade.
The TM02 is also available with Shimano 105 components for £2,200.
Jamis Xenith T1 2013 Triathlon Bike £2380.00
2013 marks the Xenith T1’s first appearance in the UK having gained plaudits across the triathlon world. Jamis have poured over every millimetre to help you squeeze every bit of speed from every milliwatt you can muster against the clock. The Windshield aero fork with shrouded rear-facing brakes increases aerodynamic efficiency a full 10%, and the aerofoil tubing and rear wheel recess help the T1 slice through the air. A steep 78 degree seat tube angle and 46mm bore PF30 bb system maximize pedal power, with head angles and fork offsets specifically designed for straight-line stability in an aero tuck on TT extensions.
The Xenith T1 really does epitomise TT performance, boasting progressive aerodynamics and high modulus carbon fibre composite coupled with high specification components. SRAM gearing delivers unsurpassed shifting whilst the colour match American Classic aero wheelset ensure the bike is race ready out of the box.
The Xenith T features Jamis’ mid modulus frameset with Shimano components and Alex RA30 wheels for £1730.
Fuji D-6 1.5 2013 Triathlon Bike £2000.00
The D-6 revolutionized the triathlon and time trial world with its unique design and incomparable performance, and it continues to excel and out-perform rivals on the bike course. Fuji’s flagship time trial/ triathlon bike continues to win praise – from editorial test riders to their sponsored professional triathletes Matty Reed and Sarah Haskins, and sponsored UCI pro cycling team NetApp-Endura.
The D-6 features Fuji’s renowned C5 high-modulus carbon frame with FC-440 carbon aero fork, and their extensive wind tunnel time resulted in aerodynamic innovations, such as brakes hidden from the wind, internal cable routing, and a rear wheel tucked into the curve of the frame.
This bike is built to race and the Shimano Ultegra gearing with FSA Gossamer forged alloy crankset, Oval Concepts components, and Oval 327 aero alloy clincher wheels will help you on the way to a new personal best.
Quintana Roo founded the tri bike back in the late 80’s and have continued to pioneer new developments as they strive to reinvent the way triathletes can use their bike and gain an advantage. This new carbon platform succeeds the long-time favourite aluminium QR Kilo. A new leader
in entry-level carbon tri bikes, and a true benchmark for sub £1500, the Kilo Carbon boasts many more aerodynamic and componentary features than its competitors.
The frame is made of beautifully woven 12K carbon with a complimentary carbon aero fork and seat post, and comes decked out with SRAM Rival components and Shimano R500 wheels. This really is a serious entry-level triathlon bike and like Quintana Roo’s flagship models, the Kilo Carbon has been developed utilising their F.I.S.T. fit system for unsurpassed ride comfort up to Ironman distance.
