Velocite Flux Carbon Fiber MTB Frame
The Velocite Full Carbon Fiber Flux was developed to deliver the best off-road performance when the terrain gets technical or fast. It is not a frame for showing off to friends, or for keeping indoors, or for riding on paved roads. The Flux is a thoroughbred carbon fiber frame intended for, trail domination and winning.
It is not an ultralight frame. It does not aim to look impressive just on paper, or to be used for bragging rights. Nevertheless, the weight of just 1.2kg for size M (19") is perfectly reasonable.
While there are lighter frames on the market, none is stiffer or more durable than the Velocite Flux. They can confidently stake this claim since they used the best available materials, and the best available construction methods and they avoided making an ultra light frame on purpose. To make the Velocite Flux any lighter, they would have had to reduce the number of carbon fiber layers since there are no further technological improvements possible. Removing the layers may be acceptable with some road bike frames, but they deemed this completely counter-productive for a true racing mountain bike frame.
A stiff frame allows you to remain in much greater control when the terrain gets technical, or when you are trying to go as fast as possible. It allows you to maintain your line without loss of control. A flexible frame deflects sideways and around the obstacle or the point of impact instead of going where you are pointing it. When navigating challenging drops or rocky and rooty sections, you will have a lot more confidence on the Velocite Flux than on a lesser frame. Similarly, on fast flowing trails where you will reach speeds at which you need to maintain focus, a stiff frame will allow you to precisely guide it along the fastest line, with minimal guesswork and anxiety.
The increased stiffness maintains its performance lead when going uphill as it shows when the power is applied to the pedals, this is ideal for climbing when off road giving better rear wheel traction since you will not be deflected sideways every power stroke.
There are very few decals on the UD (Unidirectional) matt carbon fibers finished frame thus making the advanced layup of the carbon clearly visible.
Another striking feature is the "bow" shape - the top tube and the seat stay from a perfect and uninterrupted carbon composite bow. This design allows us to use the smallest possible front triangle size which is a clever engineering way to further increase the frame stiffness, and it provides possibly the lowest standover height of any cross country MTB frame. Low standover height in turn creates a very low center of gravity, further increasing your level of confidence.
The asymmetric 1.5" head tube allows the use of the new generation high-performance forks while the BB30 bottom bracket standard does the same to the Crank- sets. These features complete what is already an impressive frame.
Construction: Monocoque unidirectional (UD) carbon fiber composite
The Flux geometry encourages aggressive riding with a very short wheelbase and chain stay, and steep seat tube. The relaxed head tube angle enhances its ability to handle high-speed descents with confidence.
