BMC’s URS 01 line features 10mm of elastomer suspension in the seatstay yoke and one of the slackest front ends in the world of gravel. Combined with a tall position, this adds up to a super stable and comfortable ride at most any speed.

One downside is that the bike only comes in four sizes, and the stack is 2cm taller than most gravel race bikes on the market. So the fit might be an issue for some riders, particularly those looking to simulate their road fit.

Watch the video above for a closer look on the $6,499 Two model of the BMC URS 01 line.
