Do Titanium springs ride differently?

Do Titanium springs ride differently?

Yes. A titanium spring is more responsive then a steel spring and helps the suspension keep the tires on the ground for better traction and handling. Titanium springs have less mass and thus less inertia. As springs are rapidly compressed the material mass is displaced and generates momentum or inertia based on the product of the velocity and mass involved. In demanding applications this can cause spring surge where the spring coils are moving in the opposite direction of the shock travel. This can disrupt the performance of the suspension system and lower the ability of the suspension to follow the terrain and keep the wheel on the ground. The less mass in the spring, the better performing the suspension will be.

Lower mass systems generate less inertia and accelerate faster allowing better "responsiveness". This allows the suspension to keep the wheel in contact with the ground more resulting in better traction and handling.

fad lang yang weight weenies ng DH...gram counters....mag roadbike na lang kayo kung gusto nyo ng magaan! Cool Ride HARDER para bumalik

you're not a member of the tribe! Aray ko! Sapul ako dun! Ngak2! geek You can see who are the fast and the furious , The Barbas, and look at their

iron horse , intense,turner or anything na dumaan sa mga taga-dumaguete or what our experts DHers use ( not all ) makikita mo ang mga battle scars

with matching stories. Most of us hated dings and scratches but downhill is about going fast and faster and going down and hitting hard and pain comes

with the ride. No room for GAYS here....and "boutique" DH bikes is GAY....meron ako nun ah???? Razz so i'm GAY No

Sandali nga MR. YETIMAN -

Eh sino ba nagpauso ng Yeti na pang DH dito sa 'Pinas? Saan galing yung ASX namin? Yung Ellsworth Moment? Yung Turner Six Pack? Yung Brit Racing Green na Intense 6.6? Saan galing lahat yon? Sino nga ba ang pasyal ng pasyal sa Sea Otter para mamili ng mga Intense FRO na gulong na pinamimigay dito sa Pinas? Sino ang namimigay ng mga jersey at goggles sa karera? Ha?!!! Ha?!!! Sinooohhhh?!!!!

Ahahay, lumabas ang pagka-gay ko dahil sa yoh, gagah! Malalaglag matris koh!

Ipalo ko kaya sa iyo mga magagandang boutique bikes mo?!!! Very Happy

Kaya lang naman kami natutong magbihis ng bike dahil sa inyo ni Camba!

Pero guwapo yung ride nung Patriot noh Fafa? Kalat nga lang talaga single pivot pero napakatatag...
