<p><span style="font-weight: 400">VAAST made headlines earlier this year when it launched its line of Allite “super magnesium” frames. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Magnesium is a material not commonly used in bicycle manufacturing. However, according to VAAST, the Allite — otherwise known as AE81 — magnesium alloy it uses to construct its frames is 33 per cent lighter than aluminium, 56 per cent stronger than A1 titanium and 17 per cent stronger than steel. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">The magnesium frames also have exceptionally high corrosion resistance, which is matched with a ceramic coating on the inside of the tubes. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">VAAST is kicking its well-rounded lineup off with two gravel bikes, two mountain bikes, two urban bikes and two kids’ bikes for 2020. </span></p>
