EUROBIKE AWARD

Impec, the new high-end roadbike from BMC, represents a revolutionary bicycle frame production process. A fully automated process line manufactures the individual frame parts and joins them together to form a flawless frame. Our radial braiding machine forms seamless tubes with a specific weight bearing Load Specific Weave (LSW). The tube joint areas, or Shell Nodes (SNC) are made of a carbon compound with exacting outer and inner shapes enabling very precise connection areas. In addition to the system integration typical for our brand, the impec construction method allows us to manufacture multiple sizes and fits. 100% Swiss made.
