Sports Applications

Similar to its applications in other industries, magnesium is prized for use in sports equipment due to its light weight and impact resistance. Magnesium also has the ability to be formed into intricate shapes which is ideal for use in golf clubs, tennis rackets and the handles of archery bows. The damping effects of the alloys also make it a good candidate for bicycle frames and the chassis of in-line skates since the magnesium can absorb shock and vibration. This absorption allows cyclist to exert less energy and enjoy a smoother, more comfortable ride. Magnesium vaulting poles have also come into production as they have minimal twisting due to their high torsional strain resistance.
