Dahon Frame Materials

01 Aluminum

Patented Dalloy Aluminum offers 20% more frame strenth than those made of 6061 aluminum.

Double-butted Dalloy tubes are thicker at the ends - where welding takes place and stress is highest - but thinner toward the center to minimize weight.

02 Chromoly

A quality steel frame, built to last a lifetime, is still the choice of many discerning cyclists. DAHON uses drawn 4130 Chromoly steel exclusively, 60% stronger than high tensile steel, our Chromoly tubing is thinner and significantly lighter - weighing less than many aluminum frame bikes from other manufactures.

03 Hi-Ten Steel

A quality bicycle starts with a quality frame. Our high tensile steel frames are built with high carbon steel that has higher tensile strength and allows us to minimize amterial. TIG welding ensures that the joints will hold up for years of riding, folding or whatever life throws your way.
