NIOBIUM ENHANCED
SUPER ALLOY

"Niobium" is a real word. It isn't something
cooked up by marketing. It is actually an
element on the periodic table (Nb). It has
been 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,
is applied to our entire rim line.
