These bolts offer all the usual benefits of our Flanged Hex head design but with the added extras!
Our 'Race Spec' bolts are machined pre-drilled (1.6mm) on all flats to allow for ease of lock wiring. In addition to this useful feature we have reduced the socket size, and scooped out the head to give an incredible 45% weight saving when compared with steel equivalents.
The washer base of this head design spreads the load, whilst the rolled threads offer increased strength to give a tough, durable lightweight fastener which is widely used by Top GP Race Teams.
The beautiful, long lasting black finish results from an application of Diamond Like Coating (DLC) this gives supreme hardness and corrosion resistance provided by a nano composite coating. This coating increases the fastener lifetime and helps to prevent galling.
DLC coatings increase the component lifetime dramatically. By incorporating them right from the beginning, the overall system cost can be held level or may even be reduced.
Please note that our coloured Titanium is not identical to our Aluminium range.

Made from aircraft grade titanium 6AL-4V (grade 5), the outstanding benefits are that we roll the threads to produce greater fatigue strength and reduce galling. These bolts are in excess of 120,000psi ultimate tensile strength, suitable to replace both Grade 5 and Grade 8 steel bolts. We offer Race Spec drilled Flanged Hex Head Bolts, Flanged Hex Head, Tapered Socket Cap, Countersunk Bolts, Dome Head Bolts, Nuts and Washers – from 3mm to 12mm.
