BMC has updated its Fourstroke cross-country mountain bike , with a new frame seeing refreshed suspension layout, updated geometry and increased water bottle capacity.

BMC has released three new Fourstoke models. The Fourstroke and Fourstroke 01 have 100mm of travel front and rear, and Fourstroke LT which has 120mm of travel front and rear. While these three bikes share the same frame, differences in carbon construction, suspension travel, and dropper post technology make each suitable for different types of cross-country riding.

A highlight from the range is the Fourstroke 01, which includes BMC’s Autodrop dropper post – the first-ever fully integrated automatic dropper seatpost.

BMC has introduced plenty of new specifications across the three new models. The Fourstroke has four specifications to choose from with prices ranging from £4,300 / $4,699 to £7,200 / $7,999.

The Fourstroke 01 has three models plus a frame kit. Pricing ranges from £5,800 / $5,999 for the frameset to £12,400 / $13,499.

Finally, the Fourstroke LT range includes three specifications with prices starting at £4,500 / $4,999 and going up to £11,499 / $12,499. BMC APS updated

However, the shock now sits horizontally underneath the top tube rather than vertically.BMC says it updated the kinematics of the system to increase traction and suspension performance on climbs and descents. In addition, BMC believes the virtual pivot designs allow it […]
