DOM Steel Tube:
DOM stands for Drawn Over Mandrel. DOM Steel Tube is produced using uniformly high quality C1020 steel strip that is formed and electric resistance welded into its basic tube shape. After annealing to produce a uniform grain structure throughout, the tube is then cold drawn over a mandrel to give it a more uniform wall thickness and denser surface as well as making the tube virtually seamless. This manufacturing process results in a tube that is up to 2x stronger than ordinary steel tubing. All Happy Trails tubular rack and guard systems utilize DOM Steel Tubing.
