Continuing the e-revolution, BMC come to the 2019 party with two new dual-suspension all-rounders - the Speedfox AMP FOUR and FIVE.
These trail-ready e-MTBs feature an all-new lightweight aluminum frame, providing the perfect combination of durability and versatility. The e-MTB-tuned APS suspension system is engineered for highly efficient climbing while also offering supple and fully active handling on singletrack descents, delivering the on-trail performance BMC mountain bikes are known for.
"Advances in hydroforming technology allowed us to create a lightweight, aluminium frame for the new Speedfox AMP,” explains Antoine Lyard, MTB Product Manager at BMC. “This development makes amplified riding - how we imagine it -accessible to even more riders. Cutting-edge hydroforming capability ensures seamless battery integration, sharp handling and a refined premium BMC look.”
Featuring 29" wheels, 130mm of front and rear travel and e-MTB-specific geometry, the Speedfox AMP is an ultra-capable machine equipped to deliver a one-of-a-kind trail riding experience. BMC’s refined Big Wheel Concept and comprehensive approach to geometry and component selection enhances high-speed handling and control on technical terrain.
Engineered to feel at home on every trail, the Speedfox AMP FOUR and FIVE are equipped for singletrack adventures, long days on the mountain, and just plain fun.
Shimano STEPS E7000
The efficient and quiet Shimano drive unit complements the versatility of the Speedfox AMP. Whether powering up a climb, negotiating tricky turns or on smooth, flowing trails, the bike’s low centre of gravity and lightweight feel translate into intuitive handling. The powerful motor engagement is smooth, and the level of assistance can be selected according to your riding style, the gradient of the climbs and the trail conditions.
Big Wheel Concept
The Big Wheel Concept is aimed at optimising geometry and cockpit fit to improve the natural qualities of 29" wheels.
The Speedfox AMP features a slack head angle and generous reach to improve stability, while short chainstays offer agile handling. BMC has also optimised the bottom bracket drop for a low and centered riding position, boosting control and stability at speed.
BMC engineers have tailored the Advanced Pivot System (APS) suspension for e-MTBs and applied it to the new aluminum Speedfox AMPs. The recalculation of APS kinematics, pivot placement and leverage ratios combined with an e-specific shock tune to give the Speedfox AMP FOUR and FIVE real trail bike attitude.
The uniquely integrated drive unit covers perfectly blend the battery and motor into the alloy frame design. Additionally, integrated speed sensors in the rear triangle make wheel changes quick and easy, while the molded in frame and seatstay protectors keep unwelcome noise to a minimum when riding tough and bumpy terrain.
The new Speedfox AMP FOUR and FIVE are now available in small, medium and large.
