£699.99 GBP £599.99 GBP
Built using our small 700c youth track frameset (44cm), the HUP azure is the ultimate example of this super competitive race category. Finally, lightweight and affordable 700c track bikes with the right geometry to fit kids has arrived. All built with correct, child-specific components so they can ride in comfort, putting all their power down on the boards. This is not simply a small frame, with cheap adult components that make it difficult. This is a low-standover, short cockpit track bike with narrow Q-factor, proportional cranks.
Built with HUP cranks tailored to fit the rider, for the first time - young racers benefit from the correct length/q-factor crank arms to match the cadence required in a lightening fast velodrome race. With 25c tyre clearances, the relevant British Cycling gear rollouts can be matched for U8 up to U14's.
With a standover height lower than existing ‘youth-specific’ track bikes, it's perfect for short riders needing a low saddle position (thanks to its 44cm seat tube) without the hassle of odd sized 650c wheels - sharing mum or dads 700c wheels to race! Our HUP azure 700c Youth Track Race Bike bikes are a game-changer, because your rider doesn’t have to wait until they are 11 years old to ride 700c. All bikes are custom-built to order.
You can also customise your build, specifying individual components of your choice. CLICK HERE to customise your HUP azure using our Custom Bike Builder.
