February and March Updates to UCI Approved List for Frames and Wheels

Stevens Arcalis Disc

Back in February, we posted our first article on updates to the UCI’s Approved List of frames and wheels. For a bike or wheelset to be used in a UCI event, it must include a UCI sticker showing it has passed various tests conducted by the cycling governing body. Here are the latest updates.

A few notable items this time are the Hia Velo Founder, an update to the Merida Reacto, new cross bikes from Norco and Stevens, and the SpeedX Aero 50 wheelset.

HIA Velo has risen out of the ashes of Guru’s bankruptcy. Industry vets Tony Karklins (Orbea USA), Douglas Zell (founder of Intelligentsia Coffee), and Sam Pickman (Specialized’s senior engineering team) have come together to bring R&D and production to Little Rock, AR. HIA Velo has worked to source everything from raw materials to paint from US manufacturers. Their first batch of bikes is the Founder. Production is limited to 250 frames in 10 dazzling PPG Vibrance colors with minimal logos made from aluminum. As a Founder, you can choose to keep your frame or trade it in for any of their new 2017 products once they are launched.

For the Merida Reacto, an updated frame could be on the way with the Reacto 3. Based on UCI info, it will be available in rim and disc versions, at two levels.

Norco and Stevens were approved for their Threshold Mk3 and Super Prestige MY18 respectively. The Threshold has been out for a few years, but the Super Prestige was just updated last season.

For wheels, it is interesting to see the SpeedX Aero 50 on the list. The company has yet to get a frame approved by the UCI, but the wheelset has been.

We’ll continue to periodically post the list as it is updated to keep you up on any secret projects manufacturers have in the works.
