A commuting bicycle should have three key elements: comfort, durability, and reliability when you need it. BMC borrowed a little engineering magic from almost every style of bike they make to give the Alpenchallenge the perfect balance of performance and pleasure — meaning you’ll never think twice about heading out for a ride. Quick handling characteristics, clean lines, and simple integrated designs prove that fun and function can be the same thing.
The Alpenchallenge 01 THREE brings all of the key features of the Alpenchallenge to riders who are just looking for a no-nonsense commuter that won’t break the bank. BMC’s alloy frame paired with its carbon fork makes for a balanced, smooth ride. SRAM takes care of the shifting with its 1x11 APEX1 drivetrain and Level G2 hydraulic disc brakes. A BMC cockpit and Continental Contact Speed 28mm tires round out this 10.7kg commuter.
