Imperfect paint finish frames - great opportunity to upgrade! The paint defects are only visible upon close inspection, and will mostly be covered up by the bike parts once assembled.
The 2nd generation Velocite Magnus carbon frame achieved the highest torsional stiffness of any road bike, while improving on the comfort and road holding ability of the original frame.
- Monocoque unidirectional (UD) high modulus blend carbon fiber composite
- Internal rear brake cable routing
- Asymmetric, tapered head tube 1 1/8” top, 1.5” bottom
- BB30 bottom bracket
- Carbon fiber head tube angular contact headset races
- Carbon dropouts
- Patented seat post clamp system
- Unmatched torsional stiffness
- 1000 - 1180g weight
There is no secret to Magnus' dominance, we just chose to invest more in higher quality materials and the best manufacturing methods currently available. Our advanced multi-modulus carbon fiber layup uses up to 13 layers of ultra high, high and intermediate modulus unidirectional carbon fiber in critical locations to virtually eliminate any lateral flex. Due to the optimized tube profiles of the Magnus, even the weight has been kept low with the size M frame weighing in at just 1080g.
The tapered aerodynamic profile Velocite Bora S fork also contributes to the increased stiffness, and overall low weight of the frame set (module). It weighs just 360g. This is in part due to its excellent mechanical design where the fork crown area was made 15% larger than before, thus managing the peak loads more effectively without a significant weight penalty.

The Magnus is at its absolute best in an all-out sprint, though. Sit on a wheel, wind it up to 50km/hr in the slipstream and then jump. The experience is jaw-dropping – you feel like you’re on the Millennium Falcon making the leap to hyperspace. Read more...
Some light carbon frames chatter and resonate through the bar and saddle but the Magnus kills road buzz with a solid thump – something we really like. As a result, you always feel a connection to the road and it’s easy to feel the level of grip when pushing hard. Believe us, you really will want to. Read more...
Where it does differ than most other high-end machines though, is in the - wait for it - stiffness department. When I put my foot down on the Magnus I know I am going nowhere but forward, fast. This is not scientific, of course, but I would argue passionately that I get more momentum out of a single pedal push on the Magnus than on any other bike I’ve ridden. It’s that impressive.
