Velocite takes pride in its alloy frame released for 2011 called Selene. Constructed with topnotch quality, the frame features triple butted 7005-T6 alloy, double hand welded custom profile, and 100% shot-peened after welding.

Custom shaped and butted in the factory, each tube of the Selene is custom manipulated for each frame size. Then, to ensure perfect quality and strength, the tubes are hand double-welded.For the first time, a contemporary alloy frame was created not just to match but also exceed the performance of modern carbon fiber frames.

Moreover, the 2011 Velocite Selene is one of the few EN tested road frames. To maximize the torsional stiffness of the frame, all tubes are oversized. These tubes guarantee comparable softness aluminum without compromising steering precision.

Velocite has released a full carbon saddle called SCS, which stands for Soft Carbon Shell this 2011. By using patented soft carbon fiber layup, the saddle becomes softer than usual carbon fiber products. Weighing in at 113g, Velocite SCS is made lightweight with only minimal compromise to comfort.

More riders are accommodated by the deformable shell in greater comfort than by other naked carbon shell saddles. A perineal cutout adds extra usability and comfort by aiding circulation and increasing ventilation. This makes the saddle for female riders, too.

Along with the soft carbon fiber monocoque shell construction of the 2011 Velocite SCS Saddle are oval carbon rails. Hung on the leaf spring at the rear, the carbon rails provides even more comfort to the saddle as compared to numerous standard padded saddles.
