All Performances are based on Ries models manufactured after January 2014 when the Ries factory converted from cast aluminum to the current wrought 6061-T6 aluminum alloy.  Though similar in appearance to the older cast aluminum the older Ries models are not rated to the same specifications as our newer models.
