Not afraid to stand apart from the crowd, BMC skipped over the 650B craze when crafting their latest and greatest mountain bike to date - the all-new long travel Trailfox TF01 29. We met up with BMC R&D specialist Guillaume Farin for a run down of everything special about the new ride.
Having tested multiple wheel sizes and geometry configurations against the clock, the company landed on a 150mm travel 29er with relaxed angles and a surprisingly short rear end. BMC touts "good stability, incredible rollover, unprecedented agility, and phenomenal grip" as the main ride characteristics of the Trailfox.
The Trailfox line includes the full carbon TF01, as well as the carbon front/aluminum rear TF02 and full aluminum TF03. Complete prices range from $11,999 for the decked out TF01 XTR build to $3,999 for the more affordable TF03, with weights ranging from 26.9 to 31.3-pounds (12.2 to 14.2kg), respectively.
