Centrefold: the Speedfox


We reckon that the charm of trail riding is that it can be seriously tough. Mountain biking can be a hard slog, so bikes need to be able to handle demanding conditions like steep, fast climbs, tricky descents and sharp switchbacks. BMC Switzerland engineered the evocatively-dubbed Speedfox 02 to rise to these challenges.

BMC Switzerland refers to this bike as “the elusive quiver killer” – its premium frame is light, sturdy and can tackle any trail, anywhere. It has a low standover height for easy manoeuvring while maintaining straight-line stability. The Speedfox 02 has integrated protection and internal routing to keep cables and parts secure during big rides.

This bike also has some major innovation behind it; including BMC’s groundbreaking Trailsync technology which combines dropper post operation and compression damping. Plus, Trailsync ensures that riders are always in the correct saddle position. Not to mention, the Speedfox 02 looks as every bit as svelte as its name suggests.
