Lightweight Frame

When traversing countless steep pitches, weight matters. The target 1950g frame weight is achieved by careful placement of the most advanced composite materials available and countless hours iterating and testing to ensure ride performance, durability and strength are all in perfect balance.

Two Bottle Mounts

Hydration is critical on any long ride or race. The BC40 design allows for a full size bottle on the downtube and small bottle on the seat tube.

Aggressive Geometry

The needs and capabilities of a modern cross country bike have completely evolved. BC40 pushes the envelope of race worthy bikes with a 66.5 degree headtube angle and 76 degree seat tube angle to allow you to optimize your weight well behind the front wheel for descending and further forward when climbing in the saddle.

Made Here

Like all ALLIED bikes, the BC40 is carefully crafted one frame at a time in our headquarters in Bentonville, AR to ensure each bike is built to the highest standard of quality possible.

120mm Travel

BC40 bolsters a full 120mm of travel front and rear with kinematics carefully positioned for pedaling efficiency and easy tunability.

A Ride to Remember

As I pedaled through the winding trails of Bentonville, the Allied BC40 became my trusty steed. Its sleek design, precision engineering, and responsive handling made every twist and turn an absolute joy. The trail seemed to come alive beneath me, and I couldn’t help but grin as I tackled each obstacle.

But it wasn’t just the ride on this demo bike that left me in awe—it was the story behind the bike. Shane, from Allied Cycle Works, provided a fantastic tour of their manufacturing facility as these are made right here in the USA. As someone who values US manufacturing, this struck a chord with me. Allied’s commitment to quality, innovation, and supporting American jobs is commendable.

The Allied BC40 isn’t just a bike; it’s a testament to American craftsmanship. Whether you’re a seasoned rider or a newbie hitting the trails, this bike will elevate your experience. Kudos to Allied for bringing manufacturing home and creating bikes that inspire adventure!

Everything you need.

This bike is super comfortable. Longer rides just seem easier. I did change the seat and went with the Reserve wheels. Changed the tires to the Mezcal’s. Also I’m not a dropper guy so opted for a carbon seat post. With these changes the bike dropped to 24 pounds even with bottle cage and Shimano XTR pedals. Fit and finish is like a high end sports car. I probably have a couple hundred miles on it now and I’m still excited to get on it. If you need a new bike “this is it”
I’m 5.11 and size Large seems perfect.
