2024 BMC FourStroke ONE test review Build quality
The BMC FourStroke ONE 2024 has a very high cost, but a high build quality, nothing to complain about.
Also noteworthy is the wide availability of assemblies and the color range.
The general construction quality is therefore very good, even if the price remains high.
We would have expected a greater number of sizes.
It's not a bargain, but the value for money is in line with other competitors.
2024 BMC FourStroke ONE test review Frame
The new chassis has been completely revised, only the excellent construction quality remains.
There are no notes to make, but possibly underlining that despite a high price there is excellent general quality and the wide range of assemblies is also a further advantage.
Ultimately the chassis is valid, as it was in the past.
There has been a lot of talk about the new integrated telescopic seat post, an added convenience, but nothing that you can't do without, it doesn't win a race... but we are sure that it will be copied by all the competitors.
2024 BMC FourStroke ONE test review Assemblies
The range of assemblies is complete and wide, the prices remain high, but essentially for those who want this model, there is no shortage of choice.
The construction and assembly quality, in each version, is high, the ONE version is very well made, expensive but really at the top.
2024 BMC FourStroke ONE test review Comfort
Very good, it's not a full mtb with 140mm of travel, but it's definitely better than a front. Overall, only those with real physical problems could feel bad.
Overall ride comfort is very good.

In the pedaled sections it is easy to drive and intuitive, even if it always remains very easy to handle and with sudden reactions.

It remains a stiff, reactive, nervous full xc mountain bike, requiring a certain riding experience to be pushed to the limit.
However, it remains a chassis which, once known, has predictable reactions, even easy to control, but very quick, excellent reflexes and speed of action are needed at high speeds.
Going down the pace the bike is pleasant and very enjoyable on any route.
Excellent braking and suspension, smooth and easy to set up.
An excellent XC mountain bike, excellent on any route, at the top on technical and difficult routes, very guided and narrow.

The low weight, the excellent frame, the geometries and the excellent suspensions lead to excellent and very competitive performance.
It's a 360 degree MTB, it goes fast everywhere, from the fast pedaled sections, to the more demanding climbs, and then ending up on the more technical descents.
It is uncatchable where speed and maneuverability are needed.
At high speeds you need experience and decision, the only weak point.
A full XC mountain bike for expert bikers, capable of making full use of the characteristics of its frame.
In absolute terms it is at the top of its category, an excellent full XC mountain bike, technically competitive, then the real difference is made by the legs and riding skills.
