Reynolds Technology is a renowned British manufacturer of high-performance bicycle tubing, established in 1898 by Alfred M. Reynolds. The company has a rich history of innovation and craftsmanship, having pioneered the development of lightweight, strong, and durable tubing materials that have shaped the cycling industry for over a century.
Reynolds’ origins can be traced back to the late 19th century when Alfred M. Reynolds, an engineer and avid cyclist, recognized the need for stronger and lighter bicycle frames. He began experimenting with different materials and manufacturing techniques, ultimately developing a unique process for producing seamless, butted tubing. Reynolds’ patented butting technology allowed for thicker tubing at the ends, where stress was concentrated, and thinner tubing in the center, reducing overall weight without compromising strength.
This revolutionary innovation quickly gained traction among cyclists, and Reynolds’ tubing became the preferred choice for frame builders worldwide. Throughout the 20th century, Reynolds continued to refine its tubing technology, introducing new materials like Reynolds 531, a groundbreaking high-tensile steel alloy that set new standards for performance and durability.
Today, Reynolds Technology remains a leading innovator in the cycling industry, producing a wide range of high-performance tubing materials for road, mountain, and track bikes. The company’s tubing is used by some of the world’s most prestigious frame builders and is known for its exceptional strength, lightness, and ride quality.
