“YOU’RE SO VAIN”
Everyone admires themselves in the mirror, right?
Once out of forging, we can finish the rings off in a variety of ways. Black or bronze hard ano, standard ano colors, and now our newly developed Liquid Ano®. Our new Liquid Ano® finish is exclusive to Praxis, and creates colors by a proprietary process resulting in a deep paint-like luster with a super slippery finish.
When we first started development for a new ring coating, we were just focussed on a better overall cosmetic process. But during the evolution and development, our R&D team was able to not only get deeper anodizing colors, but we also created a very slippery surface as a bonus. Turns out, this new super slippery coating decreased ring wear like Hard Anodizing does, and it also reduces shifting friction which keeps things running smooth. So not only do our rings shift great, but they look great with Liquid Ano®.
When you shift this good, it’s okay to be vain… well, just a little.
WHAT IS IT:
Next generation anodization that creates deep colors and super slippery surface for friction reduction.
WHY WE DO IT:
Because having great-looking rings on your bike is a must and the super slippery coating reduces friction for better shifting and longer wearing.
HOW WE DO IT:
If we told you, we’d have to kill you. It’s that super secret.
