TEST HUP evo 700c Disc Youth Cyclocross Bike 37cm
Built using the lightest youth CX frameset (37cm) on the market, the HUP evo is the ultimate evolution for this fast-growing race category. Finally, lightweight and affordable disc brake bikes with the right geometry to fit kids has arrived.
A year-round bike to do it all? Not only is it a superb Cyclocross bike giving younger riders the big benefit of 700c wheels, but it's great for Youth road racing on British Cycling events too, now the disc-brake ban has been lifted.
All built with correct, child-specific components so they can ride in comfort, putting all their power down on the track. This is not simply a small frame, with cheap adult components that make it difficult. This is a low-standover, short cockpit (48cm top-tube for the 37cm) bike with narrow Q-factor, proportional cranks.
Best of all, it can still climb, so it’s perfect for leisure rides in the holidays, trail or road. It’s even ready for a trip to the Alps, thanks to it’s 11-34t cassette and long-cage mech producing a sub-1.9 metre gear rollout (30Tx34t) on road tyres. An important consideration when putting smaller children on 700c wheels.
