SHAN Nº5 JPS, how it’s made?
It all starts from high quality standard steel tubes
Tailor made steel tubes for our frames
Production Privée has made the choice to develop its own tubing series rather then use what is available to all bicycle manufacturers on the market. This approach allows us total freedom in the design of our frames, without being reliant on "catalogue" tube specifications that result in standardized frames.
MCS: Super cromo
The basis of our tubes is Chrome-Molybdenum 4130 steel (called CrMo), sourced from Japan, and with exceptional characteristics. Our tubes are then finished depending on our specific requirements: shaping, diameter, thickness, butting lengths, thermal treatments, all taken into consideration depending on our specifications.
MCS series, the Production Privee home made tubing set
After welding, our MCS tubes undergo a cataphoretic treatment (aka ED Black). This protects the tubes from oxidation both inside and out and guarantees perfect longevity.
This personalized approach allows us to reach 100% of our goals and results in frames with outstanding performance.
Production Privée Quality Control
It is super important for the Production Privée team to be able to totally control the fabrication process of their products, and is the only guarantee of constant quality throughout.
