The ultimate performance tube set ?. Maybe, the Reynolds 853 tube set has been our No 1 for the performance rider ever since it's launch in 1995. Reynolds 853 offers uncompromising performance combined with superb ride quality and excellent strength to weight ratio. The strength to weight ratio equals that of Titanium frames.
After the frame is constructed, 853 actually increases in strength as the frame cools (air hardening).
The unique air hardening properties of 853 provides additional stiffness through reduced micro yielding at the joints, allowing stiffer frames with higher fatigue strength.
