If you don’t wanna give up too much weight for increased durability, than aluminum should be the your choice for your next road bike. And since sales fever is at a peak these days, Velocite brings forward one of its best offers from this segment, the Blue Selene.
We’re not very sure if it truly is the world’s best alloy road frame, as the manufacturer claims, but the tripple butted 7005-T6 aluminum alloy has already made up a reputation. Blue Selene also features an asymmetric, tapered head tube 1 1/8” top, BB30 bottom bracket, a weight of 1.200-1.450 grams, and, la creme de la creme, a lifetime warranty.
Strength is further enhanced by Velocite’s own Two-Pass Weld, which involves welding each tube twice, and by Shot peen, a surface treatment for aluminium alloys used by the aerospace and automotive industry to extend the lifespan of the alloy.
But the real deal reveals itself when discovering the price, currently of 230 euros. So, if you’re looking for your Christmas bargain, here it is. More info available on the Velocite website.
