The Meybo HSX carbon frame sits at the pinnacle of BMX race frame design and performance. Not only is this carbon frame extremely light, it's strong and more importantly, stiff in all the right places. Like around the bottom bracket shell.
Utilising a fixed dropout, with associated chain tensioning system and flat mount disc caliper set up, the HSX carbon brings to the gate the same simplistic design that has seen the HSX series become popular on the UCI circuit. And not just favoured buy the Dutch, riders all over the world appreciate the ease at which gearing changes can happen, and the outright performance focus this frame has. It has certainly forced other top BMX race manufacturers to re-evaluate their frames.
Here at LUX we love these Meybo frames for their simple clean graphics that state perfectly their no nonsense approach to winning. Touches like full internal cable (hose) routing makes building these frames up child's play. Plus it looks so clean! Make no mistake though, the HSX range has all the attributes of dialed geometry, stiffness and proven on the track performance.
Another detail to attention that proves that Meybo is ahead of the game is that fact that every frame in the line up has a specific rear end length with all frames increasing the chainstay length as you go from Expert through to the Pro 23. Other manufactures save money by utilising the same moulds in their Pro sized frames, but Meybo sees the benefit of lengthening the bike overall leading to a holistic design execution.
When checking out the Meybo HSX range, pay attention to the top tube lengths of the frame that you are looking at, especially in the Pro sizes as Meybo doesn't use the nomenclatures that most all other frame manufactures do, they simply call their frames in the Pro sizes by their length (Pro 21. Pro 21.5 etc). We choose to attribute Pro L, Pro XL etc as it is familiar to most racers.
