The most stunning bike at Eurobike last year was finally discharged into the public eye in production form last week at the Swiss launch but its likely the cheaper version will be the bike to buy.
Shape and Purpose
In the dramatic Alpine environment we rode the Mexico blue top end version of the 150mm travel AMP which will retail at around €10,000 although there are two other models which will likely be the bigger sellers with more realistic componentry. The key geometry features of the T’Fox Amp are a 66 degree head angle (about average for the travel) with long front centre and higher bottom bracket to eliminate pedal strike on climbs. The reach numbers are 445mm for medium and 469mm for large which stack up pretty well with non – emtb sizing. Three size options.
BMC have developed a “Twin hollow core” downtube to accommodate the battery up front which is a solution visually and is said to offer good torsional support which is also a feature of the one-piece rear swingarm. Bearings and links are all upsized for the Amp.
