Chromoly Steel Frame

Chromoly Steel is one of best bicycle frameset material as it has a low alloy steel containing chromium, molybdenum, iron, carbon, and other alloying elements.

The addition of chromium to steel improves strength and corrosion resistance and the molybdenum increases material toughness.

– Chromoly tubing has a smooth interior and exterior finish that resists scaling and oxidation.
– Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
– High tensile strength, ductility, and toughness
– Lighter and stronger than carbon steel
– Easy to weld, form, and machine
– Ability to case harden using carburization
– Ability to harden using heat treating or work hardening

CROM R750 triple-butted tube set

Crom-R750 steel tube maks a pure racing steel frame that took full advantage of the latest advances in high tech steel tubing manufacturing.

By using Our triple-butted CROM R725 tubing and tapered carbon fork, our Seaboard FG03 has all high-end track frameset’s element: lightweight, high stiffness and extraordinary handling abilities.

Headtube

 

Conical CNC’d head tube
One of the main advantages of using this type of tube is, increasing the level of precision when turning and increasing comfort when cycling. The front frame that uses this tube type has also increased in terms of resistance, and reduces the risk of cracking at the headtube connection.

Internally Cable Routed

To maintain a neat impression, cable routing is made inside the frame, there are also many advantages, such as making it easier to change brake or shifter cables and easy to adjust.

Integrated Headset

Type 1 -1/8″, EC 34/28.6, 45° (Requires Press-fit Tool to install)

The Tsunami Seaboard CX 05 uses an integrated Headset type, the advantage is that it looks slimmer because you don’t need a cushion cup; the bearing just falls into the head tube.
You save a few grams because of the lack of cups.
All things being equal, your stack height will be lower. It is also the easiest to service.

Thru Axle

Thru-axles increase the rigidity of the wheel-frame interface and allow more accurate wheel placement. This is particularly important for brake discs, where small pad clearances mean that a slight misalignment will cause rubbing. They also eliminate the risk of the wheel coming loose from the quick-release dropouts.

Micro TIG Welding

Some welding methods leave slag once they are finished, so that the finished product looks sloppy. This will also waste time as the welder will have to clean away the slag to make their product or welding job presentable. TIG welding is very clean and will leave no slag at all, so the welder can concentrate on welding instead of cleaning up the metal.1

Aero heat-treated tubing

Heat-treating is applied and the properties in the alloy are changed which can align different parts creating a stronger bond which then makes the material stronger throughout and able to withstand higher tolerances from impacts and stress put on it from riding.
