The Speedco Velox V3 Carbon Fiber Race Frames are constructed from T700 Toray carbon fiber, the highest strength carbon for BMX frames.

The use of this material allows the Velox to maximize rigidity and strength while keeping it one of the lightest race frames on the market today.

The Pro XL Velox Frames weighs in at 1.21KG, making it the lightest frame on the market of its size.

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 still uncontested in the market today.

The Speedco Velox V3 Carbon Fiber Frame now features 3 new updated colourways! Matte Green, Matte White, and Stealth Black!

Features:

Youth Features (Junior - Expert XL)

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.

Pro Features (Pro And Larger)

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 ensure your wheel isn’t going to 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.

FREESTYLE VS RACING BMX BIKES?

Choosing the correct bike for your discipline is extremely important, and sometimes for those new to the sport it can be difficult to know or decide, so we’ve broken down the main differences to help you make a decision. 

Freestyle bikes are designed for the skatepark, the streets or the trails.  They are constructed from strong, hard wearing materials and usually feature Steel or Chromoly frames.  This means that the bike can stand up to a certain amount of impacts and hard landings, but remember no bike is indestructible.  For riders looking to learn tricks and stunts, then a freestyle bike is the correct choice.

Race bikes are designed specifically with the track in mind, they are nimble lightweight machines for putting down quick lap times.  Typically, they are constructed from lightweight materials like aluminium and carbon fibre to keep the weight down and the rider at the front of the pack.  These bikes are strong enough for smooth landings on race and pump tracks but will not take the abuse that a freestyle bike would in concrete skateparks.  If you’re looking to set fast lap times or begin your competitive career on the track, a race bike is the right choice. 

WHAT SIZE BIKE WOULD I NEED?

Choosing the correct size BMX bike is very important, bikes that are too large will be cumbersome and hard to manoeuvre and bikes that are too small can feel cramped and hard to keep under control.  

Youth freestyle bikes are sized depending on the diameter of the wheel staring at 12” all the way through to 18”, at a 20” wheel the bike is considered an adult size.  Adult freestyle bikes are sized on top tube length, a 18.5” top tube is extra small for younger teenagers who have just moved up to an adult bike, a 20” top tube is small, 20.5” a medium and anything over a 21” is considered large.

Race bikes feature 20-inch wheels on all models, but the components and frame are sized dependent on age and height.  Youth race bikes start from a Micro size for very young riders and offer a range of sizes through to expert XL.  Pro size and upwards are considered adult bikes and are usually offered up to a Pro XXXL or larger for very tall riders. 

We recommend consulting our height charts from the link below to help you choose your perfect sized bike:

WHAT LEVEL DO I NEED?

Choosing the right level bike for your riding ability is important.  Components that are not suitable for your level of riding can wear or fail much sooner than expected.  Although BMX bikes can look very similar, under the surface components and materials used can vary greatly. 

All our bikes are cherry picked from the very best BMX specialist brands, and all our bikes are designed specifically for use at the skatepark or on the track. 

FREESTYLE BIKES

For first time riders new to the sport our entry level bikes, priced from £200-£400, are perfect, most of these are made from high tensile steel which means they are still relatively strong, but can be slightly heavier than higher end models.  You might find you’ll want to upgrade to something lighter sooner than you’d think.  If you are planning on using the bike in rain or bad weather, we do strongly advise choosing a model with fully sealed bearings all round. 

If you are already confident on a bike and have some experience in skateparks or performing tricks and jumps then we would recommend choosing a mid-range bike, priced from £400 to £700, with a full Chromoly frame, fork, and bars.  This will be lighter and stronger than an entry level model.

 For an experienced person that is already capable of performing most tricks and has previously owned BMX bikes then a high-end complete bike, or full custom would be suggested to meet the demands of this rider, these bikes are priced from £700 plus. 

RACE BIKES

Our range of entry level race bikes are perfect for first time racers, usually priced between £200 and £400 most of these are constructed of heavier steel rather than aluminium. These are great to get a feel for the sport but would not be able to keep up in a competitive environment. 

Our mid-range race bikes are the perfect for riders who are beginning their path to competitive racing.  Priced between £400 and £800 these are not quite the high-end steeds you see at national level races, but they all feature lightweight aluminium frames and are designed specifically with the racetrack in mind.

For experienced riders who are already racing confidently at a competitive level we offer a small range of high-end complete bikes.  These are usually priced between £800 and £1500 and feature many aftermarket components like carbon forks, disc brakes and folding tyres.  However, at this level we highly recommend building a full custom bike, usually costing between £1500 and £3000 all components can be chosen specifically with the rider in mind.  For help on building a custom bike give us a call or drop us an email!

CASSETTE OR FREECOASTER

One of our most frequently asked questions in freestyle is, which rear hub do I want, a freecoaster or a cassette?  Most experienced riders know their preference, but if you’re new to the sport it can be difficult to know which choice to make. 

The main difference between the two is the way the bike performs when going backwards.  A traditional cassette hub requires the rider to pedal in time with the rotation of the wheel while travelling backwards, while a freecoaster allows the rider to travel backwards while keeping the pedals level in the same position as riding forwards.

Although this may seem like a brilliant feature, it does come at a price!  Freecoaster hubs feature a “Slack” before engagement while pedalling forward.  This means that you can turn the crank a set amount (Usually an adjustable amount) before the drivetrain engages.  This is referred to as the “Slack”, when riding backwards you must keep your feet positioned within the slack, if your pedals rotate too much the drivetrain will engage and your pedals will start to rotate.  The smaller the slack, the harder it is to keep your pedal positioned within it while riding backwards.  This means that certain tricks are harder to perform, especially those that rely on pedal pressure, for example Tire Taps.
