In concert with Europe's leading car manufacturers, Columbus has developed a lightweight alloy tube to protect passengers against side impact intrusion. Columbus' amazing Niobium is not only an achievement in automotive safety, a double-butted version of this tube heralds a new era of bicycle design. Because this new steel alloy gets its strength from rare elements instead of risky heat treatment, dependable impact-resistant tubes can be butted to 6/3/6 gauges. If you want the planet's lightest, strongest and fastest steel tandem, insist on a Team Niobium from Santana.
