The vibrant colour palette makes use of her rainbow stripes, representing all of the continents, and Pauline’s fiery character. Not only a nod to the bikes’ natural terrain, the deconstructed mountains at the junction of the downtube and the seat tube represent the new challenge with BMC, the highs and lows of the sport and how easy it is to go from one to another. The panther on the head tube represents Pauline: super calm on the exterior but with an internal rage ready to be unleashed on race day. The BMC logo stays true to its DNA on the downtube but is joined by Pauline on the chainstay and a discrete signature by NO CURVES. Ensuring full compliance with the UCI World Champion stripes was worth breaking a sweat over and well suited to NO CURVES’ tape art approach. Sorry, it isn’t a motorbike.
