The Pride Of The Professional

 

BF_100 is our premium race bike used by GB Olympic Triathletes and riders who want a pacey bike. It is stiff and light, really responsive but also noted for its comfort.


The flagship product in our carbon road cycling range, the BF_100 is an outstanding performance road bike which is just at home being ridden on a 100 mile sportive, as it is a pro peloton. Having been competitvely raced all over the UK and Europe by Team Haribo-Beacon, it's pedigree has shone through with junior James Shaw winning over the cobbles of the Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne race in Belgium. It has raced hilly courses, crits and multi-day stage races such as Tour of Ireland.


The BF_100 is equally comfortable on a long recovery ride or your favourite sportive showing its adaptability and suitability for all types of riders.


When configured with deep section wheels and tri-bars, the BF_100 transforms into a super competitive triathlon bike. As Beacon are the Official Bike Supplier to the British Triathlon Federation, this bike was raced by three members of the Team GB British Triathlon Team in 2014. This included Gordon Benson, Lois Rosindale and Sian Rainsley. Gordon won the U23 European Triathlon Championship in 2014 on this bike. More GB triathletes will be using the BF_100 in 2015 based upon the experience of the squad in 2014.


Compatible with all the major electronic groupsets, the BF_100 can truly be categorised as a bike which can compete as a professional racing bike or as a super-fast steed for your weekends.

 

Our Chief Tester - Rob Hayles: "Light, stiff responsive and agile, this frame is set up to race. Blind test this frame against ones twice the price and the only difference you'll find is your bank balance".


Our Chief Mechanic says: "The BF_100 is a performance bike. If you want to race competitively it has all the attributes you need from a high performing frameset. However, it's equally at home in a club chain gang, on a competitive triathlon or on the lanes if you simply prefer a bike with fast power transfer. It's very supple as a performance bike offering a perfect balance between power and comfort. Technically it has performed superbly over a seasons demanding racing with our race team which speaks volumes for its build quality".
