How Does Chromoly Steel Affect My Ride?
With its resistance to extreme temperatures, chromoly steel needs a special welding technique when building frames or joints. This technique increases the strength of the welded edges compared to steel or aluminum, strengthening the bike all the way through. Chromoly steel is also treated before and after manufacturing to increase the natural resistance to corrosion, dramatically lessening the chance of rust. With a chromoly steel bike, you can worry less about bike upkeep and enjoy riding year after year, rain, snow, or shine.
Chromoly steel is also much lighter than average steel while still maintaining similar strength; this translates to sleeker frames, faster speeds, and comfortable maneuverability. These characteristics make chromoly steel the perfect material for the city and commuter bikes.
Chromoly steel is naturally shock-absorbent. Instead of adding bulky shocks to your front wheel, or worse, jittering along with every bump and crack along the way, the frame itself catches unpleasant road vibration, leaving you with a smooth ride.
The material of your bike can make or break the quality of your ride. Our commitment to chromoly steel allows you to have the best possible ride every time.
