San marco saddles use new ultra high strength material based on nanotechnology

Sandvik Coromant UK : 18 June, 2006  (New Product)
Selle San Marco, the leading Italian maker of high quality, professional racing bicycle saddles has selected ultra-high strength Sandvik Nanoflex rails for its innovative and patented Magma MG, Rever Profil, Era and SKN saddles. Small diameter Sandvik Nanoflex saddle rail tubing is used as an alternative to round, solid titanium. The result for Selle San Marco is that the overall weight of the saddle is minimised.
Selle San Marco, the leading Italian maker of high quality, professional racing bicycle saddles has selected ultra-high strength Sandvik Nanoflex rails for its innovative and patented Magma MG, Rever Profil, Era and SKN saddles.

Small diameter Sandvik Nanoflex saddle rail tubing is used as an alternative to round, solid titanium. The result for Selle San Marco is that the overall weight of the saddle is minimised.

Titanium carries a reputation as a high quality, low weight material. Sandvik Nanoflex challenges that reputation as a new material that outperforms even the strongest titanium at a lower weight. In general, Sandvik Nanoflex has twice the strength and stiffness compared with even the most sophisticated titanium alloys used in the aerospace industry.

The exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and forming properties of Sandvik Nanoflex provide opportunities for additional bicycle applications such as frame tubing, seat posts and handle bars. Other sports uses include lightweight, durable sports handles; tennis, lacrosse and badminton rackets; hiking equipment, crampons and other advanced winter sports gear.
