The Motiv Ring is built and tested to stand up to everyday life and is encased in an outer titanium shell with a scratch-resistant coating. The ring will stand up to normal use including exposure to water, most household soaps, detergents, and lotions.
Over time you may see cosmetic wear, especially if gripping hard rough surfaces, such as the grip of a barbell. This wear will not affect the function of the ring. However, to maintain the surface finish it is recommended to wear gloves or removing your ring during these activities.
