HUP evo (including UCI approval)

Since it's launch, the HUP evo has enjoyed many years of global racing success in CX, Road, Triathlon & Gravel events. Now, the new HUP evo has been re-engineered, so the game has just moved-on again...

After extensive laboratory tests and scrutiny by the UCI, Switzerland the new HUP evo in frame sizes 44cm to 58cm (alongside our carbon aero wheels) have now been awarded UCI approval for cyclo-cross, road & gravel racing competition worldwide. No limits to where this weapon can race and win.

The already lightweight, triple-butted 7005 Aluminium frame is now even lighter, thanks to its new spec frame and tube profiles, with the weight reduced 50g -140g, depending on size. We’ve also introduced new colours, so the 8 sizes of frames (from the tiny 37cm for riders approx 4ft+ up to the 58cm for 6ft+ riders) are now available in Racing Red, Belgian Blue, Stealth Black and Cool Silver. The silver HUP evo above (54cm on TD50's) weighs approx 7.9kg

 All bikes are designed and built in our race workshop in Peebles, Scotland. HUP frame weights start from 1255g (using a 410g, full-carbon fork) and our hand-built wheelset weights start from 1140g. Riders are regularly surprised that our built bikes are lighter than many big-brand carbon alternatives. HUP! HUP! HUP!

For smaller riders, the HUP evo is also available in a flat handlebar build for reduced weight, increased confidence and more control. The HUP evo has been designed to accommodate larger tyres with a class-leading 55mm clearance - so it's also perfect for 650b wheels and wider tyres, creating a lightweight MTB XC or even a Gravel Adventure bike.

Build it how you want it, then let it evolve! For example, a 37cm flat bar build on 650b wheels for a 120cm rider, can morph into a drop bar 700c bike for a 150+cm rider (all on the same frame) as all components are available separately.

HUP evo SL (kids & small adults)

The new HUP evo SL is the ultimate kids/small adult carbon-fibre cyclocross frameset, using unique XXS geometry to fit smaller riders on full-sized 700c wheels...

Lightweight, low-standover and low stack, this unique frame allows younger riders than usual to benefit from a superlight carbon-fibre frame. Thanks to the use of shorter cranks, these unique frames have lower bottom brackets, moving body weight down, improving the centre of gravity and increasing cornering speeds.

With a Japanese Toray T700 carbon frame and full carbon fork, the 37cm #HUPevoSL is the lightest frameset available, using the latest internal cable technology with easy fitting for novice mechanics thanks to full length internal tubing for the cables (using full-length outers). The red HUP evo SL above (37cm on TD35's) weighs approx 6.9kg.

HUP evo SL frames come in 3 sizes and start at 37cm for riders approx 130cm tall upwards, with 44cm and 48cm sizes too. The SL model uses a slightly longer top-tube to the Aluminium version, to increase the longevity of the frame for growing kids or small adults. An addtional benefit of this, is to also make the frame perfect for road racing - a genuinely lightweight, all-year round bike.

But don't take our word for it, just ask 13yr old Rhu, riding our Yellow prototype for West Lothian Clarion. With his 48cm HUP evo SL (and a 48cm HUP evo pitbike) he had an astounding season, winning the UK's National Cycloross Trophy series (with a round to spare) and his regional series (Scottish Cyclocross Series) plus the Scottish Champs - all in the first season for a HUP evo SL.

HUP evo24

It's no surprise kids smaller than 125cm want a HUP bike! So we've created a minature version of our highly successful 700c HUP evo, using 24" wheels for younger riders from approx 5yrs to 8yrs old.

Just because it's smaller, doesn't mean there will be any short-cuts on the specification. There is still butted 7005 Aluminium tubing, a full carbon-fibre fork, thru-axles, FSA headset and FM disc brakes, short cranks, small saddles, flat or drop handlebars and a choice of groupsets. The yellow HUP evo24 above weighs approx 8.5kg.

Like its big brother, you can customise the bike to suit its rider: Road or MTB gearing, CX, Road or MTB tyres (up to 47c), a choice or Aluminium wheels or our handbuilt CD24 carbon-fibre wheelsets on straight-pull, carbon-fibre hubs and Pillar spokes. Everything you need to race cyclo-cross, head-out into the wilderness for some Gravel Adventure or hit the local XC trails, build it your way.

No surpise they are lightwight, like all HUP bikes, market-leading weight is a given. From approx 7.3kg for a fully upgraded race rig to approx 8.3kg for a standard build on CX tyres. It's designed to fit riders between 5 and 8-years old, from approx 55cm inide leg and around 110cm+ tall, with riders able to move easily onto the first 700c wheel HUP evo (37cm) from around 59cm inside leg and around 125cm+ tall.

HUP straatrace

To compliment the HUP evo, the HUP straatrace is a dedicated lightweight road race frameset. Based on the same Criterium friendly triple-butted 7005 Aluminium tubing in race geometry, it also comes with a full carbon monocoque fork and clearances for modern 700c x 30c tyres. Frame sizes include 37cm to 58cm in HUP Racing Red or Cool Grey.

Running on disc brakes and thru-axles, it's very lightweight and can be built to the UCI minimum weight, in Aluminium! With a super low stack, standover and short top-tube, even the smallest riders can achieve the correct aero position on the smaller frames. New, wider clearances allow for hybrid tyres to tackle grass Triathlon courses too!

Running the same 700c wheels as Mum & Dad, it’s perfect for component sharing - one wheel and tyre size for everyone. The HUP straatrace is also Di2 compatible and can run either a single or double chainring groupset. The red HUP straatrace above (54cm, on HUP CD50's) weighs approx 8kg.

HUP xc

The HUP xc is a lightweight MTB hardtail for cross-country racing, trail smashing or adventure fun times. Born and raised at the UCI MTB World Champs in Glentress, Scotland in 2023, it's a double-butted 7005 frame with boost thru-axles and progressive cross-country geometry. A rocketship of a bike for riders of all ages, whatever the terrain. 

Lightweight for the climbs, but still capable of the technical descents, as found on modern cross-country race courses and bike park trails.  The low standover/low stack gives riders the space to move on the techy sections and keeps their shoulders down on the faster sections. The silver HUPxc above (15", 29er) weighs approx 9.8kg.

With 4 frame sizes covering riders from approx 125cm up to approx 185cm tall, the whole family are in for a treat. In the case of youth riders, you can move their components to a larger frame as they grow, just like all HUP bikes. Parents also benefit from component sharing, life is simple with everyone on the same size wheels (and the same mech hangers!) plus future upgrades much easier too.

HUP xc20/xc24

The HUP xc20 & xc24 are lightweight hardtail MTB's for cross-country trails, adventures or just plain fun. Born and raised at the UCI MTB World Champs in Glentress, Scotland in 2023, with a double-butted 7005 frame with the latest thru-axles, UDH hanger and croass-country/trail-focused geometry. A rocketship of a bike for riders age 4+

Lightweight for the climbs (we believe it's the lightest 20" Aluminium frame on the market), but still capable on the fun descents, bike parks trails or sweeping berms. The low standover/low stack gives riders the space to move on the tech sections. Big wheels for it's rider's size, kids-specific geometry (slightly slacker fork angle) and correct fitting components create an agile, responsive and seriously fun bike. The purple xc20 pictured weight approx 8.5kg with suspension.


Frames fit riders from approx 105cm upwards with a low maintenance design featuring full length outer cabling (with option to fit a dropper post) plus the latest standards like12mm thru-axles, 2.4" tyre clearance and a tapered head tube - ensuring future compatibility. SRAM's Universal Deraillieur Hanger system (UDH) also brings the ease of a widely available hanger, same hanger as Mum & Dad! The silver xc24 below weighs approx 9.6kg with suspension.

HUP air24

The HUP air24 is a lightweight dirt jump, pumptrack and skate park bike on 24" wheels, available in 2 frame sizes and 3 colours with customisable options. A genuinley lightweight flying machine of a bike for riders age approx 6+

Lightweight (we believe easily the lightest 24" DJ on the market, not that many exist!) and highly capable, the low standover gives riders the space to move in the air. Big wheels for it's rider's size, kids-specific geometry and correct fitting components create an agile, responsive and seriously fun bike. The squad loved testing the HUP air24.


Acheiving a genuinely low weight was a serious aim of the HUP air24 project, as kids need it to be low - their upper body strength will always struggle to manouvre a heavy bike (a common problem with 12kg+ BMX bikes).

Correct fit is also important to remain agile, another common problem seen with manufacturers using 26" DJ frames, but running 24" wheels - the long chainstays and long wheelbase severly compromising the handling.

With 2 frame sizes (Short or Long) covering riders from approx 120cm up to 155cm on incredibly playful 24" wheels, the HUP air24 frame is decicated to using only 24" wheels, as it should be. The low maintenance design features full length outer cabling plus the latest standards such as 2.4" tyre clearance and apered head tube to ensure future compatibility.
