new Velox chassis is called SK1 and was homologated by Severe
Kart Racing with Cik Fia homologation n°85/CH/17, valid
from 2012 to 2018 for the categories KZ1, KZ2, KF1, KF2, KF3,
but also for Rok, Tag, Iame, Rotax Max, Rotax DD2.
SK1 is the result of a hard work of research, development, tests
and data acquisition, which led to the creation of a very competitive
and easy to use chassis, suitable for all people who love kart,
whether professional or amateur riders who want to have fun
with friends on Saturdays.
This new model, like its predecessor, continues to answer very
well to all the slightest variations of set-up, combining excellent
performances with simplicity of development. It also maintains,
with new stub axles, a light and incisive front that allows
a clean and efficient guidance.
Characteristics of the new Velox chassis:
The geometry of the chassis and the position of the seat have
changed, in order to give more balance and a better behavior
of the kart in each condition.
The supports of axle bearings have changed to offer more grip
at the back, improving the curve entrance that appears more
stable, but at the same time ensure fluency both in the distance
and out of corners, where the traction is excellent. This enhanced
behavior, compared to a base which in itself was already very
good, is also due to research and use of new materials of the
latest generation, which allow to obtain performances and ease
of driving which were unbelievable years ago.
All this characteristics had direct evidence during the test
sessions and are not merely the result of a project on paper
or computer based. A proof are the favorable impressions of
all those who had the opportunity to test a preview of the new
chassis configuration SK1.
As we know the eye wants its part, so nothing is left to chance:
all the components are branded VX (an acronym for Velox) and
treated in every detail.
New graphics are also coming, with a color gradient from red
to orange fluo and a renewed yellow.
