All Rivet bikes utilise straight gauge titanium 3AI-2.5V tubing. We utilise straight gauge tubing as opposed to a butted tube to keep the amount of deflection in the tube to a minimum and to keep the frames performance consistent and predictable.
All tubes are optimised in diameter and wall thickness to dial in the ride comfort where we want it and dial in the stiffness where we need. Our bi-axially ovalised and oversize down tube is there to increase the size weld area to the head tube and the bottom bracket to withstand the differing loads applied at either end of the bike.
Rivet titanium frames are strong, resilient and durable, yet compliant enough even for the most challenging terrain.
The durability of titanium is an advantage beyond steel, aluminium and carbon. Titanium is as strong as steel, yet lighter. It is as light as aluminium, yet has more longevity.
It is as comfortable (or possibly more comfortable) than carbon yet way more durable.
