According to the result of the 4 above mentioned steps we build your custom frame on Digital Cyber Jig:

 

Step 5:

That is your CAPO LEGEND frame

worldwide-first-inox
Harald Cap had established in 1980 a manufacture of custom built steel frames in Vienna. In 1990 he decided to move this manufacture to Italy starting a cooperation with Marco Bertoletti who recently had founded himself a company for custom frames applying the new technology of TIG welding.

In 2013 Marco & Harald agreed upon the brand merger CAPO LEGEND for all steel frames of their mutual cooperation. In 2014 Harald Cap decided to fully push the development of stainless steel which is the most exciting metallic material for frame tubing even in comparison to titanium.

STAINLESS STEEL

Comparison of titanium & stainless steel tubes
Our tubes are made of precipitation hardening stainless steel 17-7PH. A drawing process leads to single, double or triple butted tubes, a swaging process shapes them to single or double taper. These tubes achieve high strength & corrosion resistance when transforming the austenite to martensite by cold reduction followed by hardening low temperature heat treatment. Yield strength escalates from 1276 MPa up to 1793 MPa providing corrosion resistance superior to that of standard stainless steels.

 

These martensitic stainless steel tubes approach titanium ones already very closely regarding weight & stiffness but exceed them by roughly 25% regarding strength!
