Master - Titanium road bikeCompetition was all we thought about while designing the Master series titanium frame. Therefore, stiffness and stability were the factors of concern.
Master series uses double butted 3Al-2.5V titanium tubes. The tubes were stress released by heat treatment before welding into a frame. Large size differential head tube combined with 1 1/8-1 1/2 tapered fork increased the maneuvering stability under high speed cornering and the stiffness while pulling the bike. Besides, bigger down tube and chain stay also improved overall frame stiffness.
The design in the Master series solved the problem of lack of stiffness commonly found on titanium frames. With less than 100 g of increase in weight over the Protege series, Master is a much more powerful road fighter. For riders with racing in mind, Master is the product worth considering.
