BMC has long figured that softening up a hardtail makes it faster without adding the complexity and weight of pivoted full-suspension design. With their Teamelite01 frame, they bring Micro Travel Technology (MTT) to the table, to provide even more compliance and shock absorption to an incredibly efficient, superlight frame.
BMC has the advantage of a World Cup-dominating squad to rely on for suggestions and feedback. Because climbing is such an important part of mountain biking, riders generally prefer the lightest frame they can ride. A rigid frame can save a kilogram over a full-suspension model. The limitation is the vertical rigidity. Light often is a synonym for back-breakingly and wheel chatteringly stiff.
But the team wanted to keep the low weight of a rigid frame, but add compliance. The frame had to keep its lateral rigidity as well for power transfer. The stays were already thin and flattened in the vertical plane. So they needed more.
The big change happens where the seatstays join the seat tube. There, you’ll find a damper between the top of the stays and the frame. The damper slides on bushings that cover two hex-head bolts. Each of these elements is important as the frame comes with three different dampers to tune the compliance you experience o the trail. This is MTT, and it brings 15mm of plush to your ride. Now you can get the tire pressure low for grip, but not too low, for the compliance. The frame, and the BMC carbon compliancepost (with 3mm of offset), add damping, comfort, and yes, efficiency to your ride.
