So it should, it’s new and never been ridden.

so one more of those trendy, interchangeable "road-bike-with aero-embellishment-blabla"-frames. and for this, they sacrificed one of the very few remaining pure and classical framesets.

my izalco max fanboy days are counted!

jumping on the bandwagon instead of standing out of the common crowd and confirm an identity. not my cup of tea.;-)

While i definitely dont echo your sentiment, it does look like someone took a drop stay aero frame and halved all the tube diameters.

I like it. I never really liked the old izalco. Basically seemed like the same thing as a supersix evo but not quite as cool

no, the old izalco max is rather different to the evo hm (i owned both). much simpler in appearance, only round, straight tubes all over, no embellishment at all, adapted tube diameters, so smaller sizes have really slim tubes.
you like it or you dont, but meanwhile, those characterisics make it quite unique (at least concerning mass market-products), while semi aero frames can be found on every corner.

The DT 1475 are identical to the 1400's. They only call them 1475 exclusively for BMC in 2019
Nice, source?
The wholesaler for Aus, Advance Traders, went straight to the horses mounth

Interesting thing is the 2019 SLR01 TWO still has the 1400's.. Why would they have the same wheel with two different names :noidea:

This is incorrect, the 1475's are NOT the same as the 1400's. They are very similar though.

I was sent the full spec sheet directly from BMC.

The 1475's are slightly heavier, probably because they use a different hub (on the spec sheet it says "Spline hub with 3 pawl system"

The DT Swiss wheels lineup is a confusing mess.

+1, they all look the same and have silly code names. You'd think such a successful company would be a bit more focused on their marketing. Seriously, who's going to remember such helpful names as the ER 1600 spline 32 Disc, or the ARC 1100 Dicut 48? Mavic are pretty bad as well though, they have about 5 different models of the ksyrium.

If you look at that chart, its even more confusing.
Whats the difference between the ARC 1400 Dicut in 62mm and the PRC 1400 Dicut in 65mm? 3mm... thats it?

By that chart, the ARC should be for Time Trial and the PRC for racing... ok, but why?

Image
And that guy is using the Time Trial wheel on a road bike... so I guess its fine?

Even their own marketing team doesn't get it. Go figure...

So much of their market is OEM, and part of how they service that is being willing and able to provide a massive number of bespoke variants to serve the cost and spec that the purchasers want. But yeah, doesn't make it easier to grow their aftermarket side.

I remember reading a year or two ago an interview on Pinkbike with their MTB product manager saying the 26/27/29, standard/boost, narrow/wide trail/plus etc was leading to an unsustainable number of SKUs that they were actively trying to reduce - but it seems like their road side is more bloated than ever.
