 BMC Specialities…

BMC’s suspension screams Swiss design, with efficiency in optimizing your suspension according to your pedal stroke. Being stiff when necessary, and plush when need-be. Ultimately giving you more confidence on technical terrain.

The Big Wheel Concept by BMC is their way of running 29 inch wheels, while not sacrificing on handling, or squashing your confidence.

Then BMC’s carbon fibre frame gives the Agonist its stiff nature, while acting as the main light-weight representative. The carbon is sculpted in a flowing shape throughout the frame, maintaining durability.

Functionality of the Agonist is not to be overlooked, as the internal cable routing gives the bike its all-round neatness.
