What is Niobium-enhanced aluminum?
It used to be difficult to alloy Niobium and Aluminum together, because of their vastly different melting points. But now that has been figured out, we have a new alloy with nearly double the tensile strength and a finer grain structure over conventional aluminum. A special T10 process where the rim is cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, cold worked and then artificially aged for 8 hours to improve strength.
