Reynolds 853

what's in a number?
Seamless air-hardening heat-treated steel

the benefits of air-hardening steels are particularly noticeable in the weld area where, unlike conventional steel alloys, strength can actually increase after cooling in air immediately after welding. 853 is heattreated to give high strength and damage resistance, and the steel properties allow thin walls to be used, so that lower weight but fatigue-resistant structures can be made.

Why have we selected to use premium 853 reynolds tubing?

"heritage" - is the quick answer:

birmingham-based reynolds technology ltd (rtl) has a long history in the tube making industry. World renowned in the bicycle industry, with no fewer than 27 tour de france champions crossing the finish line atop bicycles built with reynolds tubing. Why would we want to use anyone else's tubing?
