SPEEDCO Velox Carbon Gloss White Frame

DESCRIPTION:

Speedco Junior - Expert - Expert XL:

Velox Youth 2018 have arrived, available in Junior, Expert, and Expert XL. We’ve built upon the proven design of the Velox Pro frame and created a first class ticket straight to the podium for the young pocket rocket. Conceptually, the two frames look quite alike, but the features of the youth sizes are designed around the most important thing for the young and aspiring professional, minimal weight. A lighter, less rigid, less aggressive design of their older sibling, the Velox Youth are uncontested in the market today, period.

 

Head Tube – The Youth frames use a standard integrated head-tube because the most crucial aspect of the front-end for a rider of this size is a light weight fork. The standard integrated head-tube accommodates your choice of a 1-1/8” or 1” steerer fork spec to keep the front end as light as you’d like.

 

Bottom Bracket – The Youth models utilize a 68mm euro spec BB shell, a much smaller shell than what the

Velox Pro frames use. The euro shell best accommodates popular cranks in the marketplace for riders of this size, and flows well with the smaller down-tubes used on these models.  The Junior’s down-tube tapers to 50mm at the BB junction, while the Expert and Expert XL taper to 65mm – every size taking into account the rate of force applied by riders of varying sizes and weights.

 

Drop Out – The Youth frames have a super clean 10mm drop-out unlike the more complicated system utilized by the Pro frames. While the larger rider who uses a Pro model will benefit from the 15 or 20mm axle compatibility and the integrated chain tension system, the young bucks benefit more from the lighter 10mm straight system on the Youth sizes.

 

Internal cable – We have an internally routed brake cable for an extra clean look, but have also used a small tube through the top-tube so you don’t have to fish your cable through the frame. You won’t need to split your cable either, just slide it in with the full housing and you’re good to go.

 

 

Speedco Pro - Pro XL-S - Pro XL-L - Pro XXL - Pro XXXL - Pro 24 - Pro Xl 24

The Speedco Velox Carbon Pro frames, available in Pro, Pro XL-S, Pro XL-L, Pro XXL and Pro XXXL, Pro 24 & Pro 24 XL are the most advanced frame in BMX racing – period. They’re made of T700 Toray carbon fiber, which is the highest strength carbon for BMX, promoting max rigidity and combined strength in a featherweight winning machine.

Our Pro XL frame weighs in at 2.65lbs, making it the lightest frame on the market of its size. The down-tube is 53mm wide at the head tube junction, and it tapers to 73mm at the bottom bracket which is wider than the shell of most frames on the market. The asymmetrical chain-stay is 73mm behind the BB, and the combination of the two are the main ingredients in a responsive frame built to holeshot; the rest is up to you. Plain and simple, our frame was designed by riders who still smash gates and sprints on a regular basis. Our cubicle is the gate, our meeting room is the podium, and our lives revolve around the sport of BMX and winning races. We designed this frame to coincide with that agenda, see you at the payout window?

BB86 – There are 3 popular bottom bracket standards for BMX – euro, BB30, and BB86. A euro is a threaded BB, the shell is 68mm wide and it uses 24mm (92mm total) of outboard bearings and a 24mm crank spindle. A BB30 is similar, 68mm shell but promotes a larger crank spindle (30mm) therefore a larger spindle to flex the same narrow bottom bracket junction. The Velox carbon uses a BB86 which is a 86mm BB shell and press-fit bearings that equal 4mm added to the 86mm shell (92mm total) while using a 24mm spindle. The advantage to our BB is the wider down-tube and chain-stay described above. Rigidity is key for first straight pull and accelerating out of turns, while a flimsy frame will just get you cut off out of the gate.

 

10/15/20mm dropout – The dropout on the Velox is all about efficiency. With an integrated chain tensioner through the front of the dropout, the need to over-tighten your wheel has been eliminated. Each dropout uses two flex-free 4mm adapters to insure your wheel isn’t gonna move regardless of how many horses you’re putting down first pedal.

 

Tapered head tube – The new standard for high-end race frames is a tapered head tube. A tapered head tube uses a 1-1/8” top bearing and a 1.5” bottom bearing and allows us to use a fork both lighter and stronger than ever before.

 

Internal cable – We have an internally routed brake cable for an extra clean look, but have also used a small tube through the top-tube so you don’t have to fish your cable through the frame. You won’t need to split your cable either, just slide it in with the full housing and you’re good to go.
