The Speedco Velox Youth range is available in Junior, Expert, and Expert XL. Speedco has 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.
The Velox Youth frames feature a super clean 10mm dropout at the rear and same bad boy looks as its big brother Pro Velox frames that will destroy the comp's confidence when the lay eyes on your carbon race rig.
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.
Down Tube - 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.
