HAND-BRUSHED OR MATTE FINISH
Updated: Oct 16
Today we are going to talk about the finish of our frames, forks and other titanium components.
You'll have noticed that practically all of our bicycles have a hand-brushed finish. This finish is achieved by hand-brushing the titanium with an industrial Scoth Brite cloth, giving the titanium its more natural looks and, more important, making it much easier to keep looking new over time. If one day your titanium frame gets scratched, you will only have to brush it a bit with the piece of cloth we include with your bike, then clean the area with a bit of oil (4WD is perfect, but even olive kitchen oil will work well) , remove excess oil and voilà, your frame will look like new again. At Nua we have the durability of our bikes as one of the most important premises, which is why we believe that this hand-brushed finish is the best long-term option, and that is why it is our choice.
But we also offer the matte blasted finish as an option. As you can see in the following photos, it is undeniable that this is an elegant and more modern finish, although if you opt for this finish keep in mind that possible scratches cannot be removed as is the case with hand-brushed. It will be something like if you have a painted frame and it gets scratched, which means you will not be able to enjoy one of the special advantages that a naked brushed titanium frame offers you.
Here you can see a beautiful example of a Nua titanium bike with this finish. The Roure Pinion that we built for Klaus, who wanted a bike with the right geometry for comfortable long distance rides, for bikepacking tours and for tours in the mountains and that's how we made it.
“Exactly what I've been searching for. I hope that one day I will also be able to fulfill my dream of riding to the North Cape with this bike” Klaus.
