Velospec™ ELITE (Heat-Treated, Air-Hardening Steels)
UTS: ~1150 MPa
Velospec high-strength steels are designed for top-end performance and lightweight frame designs. This seamless tubing undergoes DOM processing for better tube tolerance and structure. Composed of "air-hardening" characteristics from its chemistry, this alloy has the ability to further harden/strengthen TIG welded zones during its cool down.
Velospec is offered in two versions: Elite and Pro. For additional strengths especially for thin wall profiles, the Elite tubes undergo a heattreatment that raises tensile strengths up to ~1150 MPa, which counters material fatigue and external impacts. At moderately lower but outstanding in toughness, the cold-drawn, non-heattreated Pro tubes have tensile strengths up to ~950 MPa. Velospec’s US-made raw material is tested to AMS 2301 aircraft quality.
