Sport industry – especially action (or extreme) sports involving a high level of physical exertion, requires highly specialized, durable equipment.
An excellent relative strength, great corrosion resistance and low Young modulus index makes titanium alloys very popular materials in the sport industry. There are numerous reasons for which titanium frequently finds its use for sporting equipment, deriving out of the fact that it offers incredible strength and a reduced weight.
As an interesting example of titanium alloy application in extreme sports is the fact that titanium, in contrary to steel, has a low thermal conductivity, which maintains reduced frictional warming. Bobsled runners or figure skating blades are made of titanium alloys, which allow the heat to dissipate slowly, which causes the temperatures to slightly rise and, as a result, improves gliding behavior.
The most popular titanium application is bike frames, tennis rackets, golf and baseball bats, climbing gear and equipment, structural elements of paraglides, sailing equipment and many others.
Titanium Grade 5 can be utilized for hollow cast golf club heads while Grade 9 is used for tennis racquets to guarantee torsion resistance.
