Nodus & Tip
I-Tech® Low Friction Rings have a non-adhesive surface condition due to their production design and the material used. Friction is dynamic without energy loss.
The contact surface creates an angle of friction that limits adhesion at the beginning of the maneuver and improves sliding performance.
I-Tech rings for dynamic use are 20% lighter and 20% stronger!
Coefficient of friction of the I-Tech PO 0.18 compared to aluminum 1.35 with Max lubricant treatment 0.30...

- High mechanical strength, flexible Low friction
- High impact and UV resistance
- Low coefficient of friction
- Twice as light as aluminum and six times lighter than steel
- Reliable and maintenance free
