The Reason Why Grade 9 Titanium Alloy is Used for Bicycle Frames

Here, we will focus on the bicycle frames and what material they are made of. This choice has a dramatic effect on the way a bicycle rides, its weight, durability, and, importantly and its cost.

Titanium is often seen as the perfect frame material for bicycles, whether for racing or commuting, but what exactly is it that makes this metal such a sought-after material?

Titanium alloy certainly has its positives after looking at the other choices; it doesn’t rust like steel, doesn’t fatigue or give way to rumbling road vibrations like aluminium alloys; it is also strong and won’t crack like some non-metallic options.

Grade 9 titanium(Ti-3Al-2.5V) is used for bike frames. This alloy contains 94.5% Ti, 3% aluminium and 2.5% vanadium, and is used because it combines the variety of benefits of other grades, but with an ease of machining not seen in other titanium alloys. This means that it is significantly stronger than the grades of pure titanium, but is easier to weld and useful to essential for keeping prices down to a vaguely sensible level.

XL Titanium can produce a serious of titanium products for bicycle, such as titanium bicycle screws, titanium pedal spindletitanium spokestitanium chain ring nuts, titanium seatpost clamps, titanium bicycle frame, titanium bicycle front fork, titanium biycle handlebar, titanium bicycle seat post, titanium bicycle Handle Stem and other titanium bicycle parts.
