BMC AIR FILTER
BMC Air Filter is one of the most renown brand in the motorcycle and automotive industries. Based in Bologna, Italy, BMC is now an international company with branches in Germany, China and India, along with over 94 distributors all over the world. BMC produces the world's best quality air filters for racing, street use and composite parts.
BMC air filters are designed and produced to ensure a higher air flow than original paper filters. In F1, for example, BMC cotton filters minimize the loss of air flow pressure passing through the air filter; this way ensures the best conditions for full exploitation of maximum power. Therefore the benefits of replacing the original paper filter with BMC cotton air filter, produced using the same technology and materials as the F1 air filters, are evident.
BMC air filters guarantee superior air capacity in respect to traditional paper filters enabling minimum loss of power in the air flow and therefore obtaining better performance from the engine.

CARBON RACING FILTER
The “C.R.F.” Carbon Racing Filter () - is BMC’s new high performance sports air filter designed for road and competition vehicles. It features a 100% carbon fibre support structure with a cotton filter element.
CRF - CARBON RACING FILTERS - CARS
CRF - CARBON RACING FILTERS - BIKES
BMC conical filters let you remove the original air box and provide long life, better performance and easinessto replace. These filters are available in the following versions: Single Air (SA) with a simple lateral airflow; Twin Air (TW) with lateral and central airflow.
SINGLE AIR FILTER
TWIN AIR FILTER
OVAL TRUMPET AIRBOX
The O.T.A. device – Oval Trumpet Airbox – is the new high performance BMC aspiration and filtration kit.
CDA - CARBON DYNAMIC AIRBOX
The CARBON DYNAMIC AIRBOX is a patented system that replaces the car's original airbox channelling fresh air directly to the filter. The air is thermally insulated inside the carbon airbox and then conveyed to the engine through an air flow deflector.
The silicon accessory line includes traditional straight hoses, reducers and elbows with various diameters.
DIA - DIRECT INTAKE AIR SYSTEM
The Direct Intake Airsystem, with its particular structure, ensures that aspirated air is carried to the engine at a higher speed and capacity in respect to traditional systems, thus providing significant gains in engine performance.
Every BMC air filter can be regenerated and re-used with a simple washing/oiling procedure.
Why choose BMC?
BETTER THAN OEM FILTERSOEM paper filters present an elevated resistance to the passage of air and consequently a reduction in engine performance. Compared to a paper filter the BMC air filter permits a notably higher air flow passage, producing less than half the Pressure Drop (difference between the air pressure before and after the filter element) over the paper filters. This doesn't compromise the filter's engine protection efficiency: thanks to the combination of the different oiled layers, containment of all impurities is guaranteed as far as 7 microns, while paper filters generally require total filtration of particles as small as 10 microns. So BMC air filters let more air into the engine while still protecting it better than paper ones.In addition, a traditional paper filter must be replaced regularly during routine maintenance whilst the BMC air filter is reusable and has a general life-span equal to that of the vehicle.
BETTER THAN SYNTHETIC FILTERSThe principal difference between BMC oiled cotton filters and synthetic material filters (for example, plastic material cloth) is seen in the ability to retain air impurities. Synthetic filters allow the passage to particles smaller than the size of the tiny holes in the filtration material- this means that a filter with 80 micron holes allows the passage of all elements of a size smaller than the hole, only guaranteeing containment of particles larger than the dimension of the hole (for example - sand has a dimension of around 50 microns). The cotton has a wider texture which favours a greater air-flow passage and through the combination of the different oiled layers, guarantees containment of all impurities from as small as 7 microns.
BETTER THAN OTHER COTTON FILTERSBMC's support frame structures are manufactured using a unique procedure called “Full Moulding” which enables the production of the characteristic red filter from a single mould without the need for gluing at the corners, often the cause of easy breakage. BMC air filters have the smallest rubber infringement in the market (less than 6mm), thus allowing the maximum filtering surface.
HIGHEST QUALITYThe BMC air filter is composed of a metallic mesh covered by an oiled multilayer cotton filtration material. This guarantees a high level of filtering efficiency and a limited loss of air pressure. The oil used gives the material its “sticky” adhesive characteristic which aids in the retention of air impurities, without compromising or blocking air flow penetration. This also creates a continuous filtering process. The cotton filtrating element is contained within an external support frame which interfaces with the air box and allows it to be securely installed in the air-box. Every stage of the production process (from design to manufaturing) is carried out in Italy by italian engineers using the finest materials.
SEVERE TESTING BMC operates in a number of areas: automotive, racing, aerospace, nautical and industrial, according to the specific regulations and requirements of each and every one of this sectors. Consequently, BMC tests are severe and thorough, thus ensuring the highest quality in respect to paper, foam and plastic materials. The technical solutions used by BMC are derived from the results of a continuous and intense programme of laboratory tests. BMC carries out filtration tests in reference to the international standards for filtering (ISO 5011). BMC Air Filters have a 98.5% filtering efficiency in respect to this standard.
ECOLOGICAL AND ECONOMICALBMC air filters are made of cotton, a natural material which can be reused several times after been washed with a special detergent and re-soaked in oil, thus saving the cost of changing it every time the vehicle is serviced and reducing wastes for the environment.
WINNER IN ALL CATEGORIESBMC Air Filters are by far the most successful filters in every sports category, since they equipped the champions of Formula 1 (9 titles), American Le Mans (10 titles), Le Mans 24Hours (11 titles), DTM (9 titles), Superbike (2 titles), AMA Superbike (1 Title), Suzuka 8Hours (1 title).
