AMS2488 Type II is an SAE coating used as a dry lubricant. Its applications include military and medical instruments around the world as an anti-galling agent. The surface is incredibly slick - comparable to the feel of Teflon.
More information on this standardized finish can be purchased at the SAE standards website.
The 000 (Triple Zero) is the newest ultra-minimalist design from Luftverk that focuses on simplicity. The organic profile is uninterrupted by any steps or lines with only a simple engraving on the edge.
On string it creates an unmistakably titanium hum with whips and lacerations that ring loudly. The super thin wall thickness makes it essentially to two bells with a bearing in between. The low total weight with the larger diameter creates an incredibly floaty "full" feeling. The flat hub design means much of the weight is concentrated on the rim so even with the low total weight it is surprisingly stable.
Limited to 40 units in Raw Titanium with numbered certificates.
