GRENCHEN, Switzerland (BRAIN) — BMC’s new Alpenchallenge AMP Cross is a lightweight e-bike built for off-pavement adventures.

The model has a carbon frame with an integrated drive unit. The frame featires BMC’s Micro Travel Technology, which adds 10 millimeters of damped suspension travel for comfort and traction. The bike has a mountain bike drivetrain.

“Our Alpenchallenge AMP Cross is built for off-road adventures and is an incredibly versatile e-bike. Think of it as a touring bike with unlimited off-road capability. The well-thought-out specifications make it an ideal tool for daily rides, whether on local paths or unknown back-road terrain,” said Mart Otten, BMC Switzerland’s senior road product manager.

The company said the bike’s central battery position “creates a low, natural-feeling center of gravity that neutralizes the dynamic influence of the battery weight.”

The limited-edition models feature BMC’s ICS cockpit with the cables routing through the stem. It also features BMC’s D-Shape seatpost, said to provide compliance and lightweight.

Two models are available: the Alpenchallenge AMP Cross LTD and the Alpenchallenge AMP Cross ONE. They are available in sizes S, M and L.
