After several years of development, the ground breaking Velocite Helios Aero is here. The frame is a result of collaboration with world championship winning aero bike designer, Lewis Mathiske. The Velocite Helios Aero utilises Lewis' exceptional aerodynamics knowledge obtained over the years working with top riders, and specialist low speed wind tunnels in Australia.

Helios Aero is unique in that it is currently the only aero road frame that satisfies two main objectives for a high performance aero road frame:

  • true aero profiles within the maximum allowable limits as set by the UCI
  • Unsurpassed lateral stiffness matching, or exceeding the stiffness of non-aero high performance road frames, at no significant weight premium

Until now, gaining true aerodynamic benefits and at the same time achieving superior frame stiffness was difficult, with designers having to make a choice between the two. Most of the current aero road frames therefore use very wide tube sections throughout, or in key locations to achieve the desired stiffness while using simpler manufacturing methods and carbon fiber layup.

We accomplished the challenging task of achieving outstanding torsional stiffnes with real aerodynamic profiles by utilising the best available carbon fibre composite materials and manufacturing methods in the frame's manufacture. The advanced carbon fibre layup features extensive use of ultra high modulus carbon fibre while the high compression moulding technology ensures that both the interior and exterior of the frame are completely smooth, free of wrinkles and manufacturing debris.

Special design features such as the full carbon BB30 shell and an asymmetric head tube with carbon fibre races and a 1.5" bottom bearing ensure that the Velocite Helios Aero can climb and descend as well as the highest performance non-aero road frames.

The high compression moulding technology and the resulting smoothness of the interior of the frame enabled us to implement internal cable routing entirely without internal guide tubes, allowing perfect shifting performance.

Velocite Helios Aero uses a full carbon monocoque aero fork with a narrow profile, wide stance and carbon dropouts. The tapered 1.5" carbon steerer ensures the best stability and confidence when descending, or sprinting.

To ensure perfect fit and to offer maximum versatility of use, the aero seatpost features 48mm of fore-aft adjustability allowing extreme set-forward saddle position for use as a time trial, triathlon or iron man competition bike. Saddle position of almost above the bottom bracket as well as up to 40mm of setback can be achieved using the same seatpost.
