I would have to assume it is aluminum. Wouldn't be magnesium because that would really ramp up the price. It could be a low percentage steel for more longevity. But aluminum makes the most sense since it is the economical little brother to titanium in terms of light weight and heat dissipation.

Ti isn't that easy to weld, it really needs to be extremely clean and pretty much in a field of inert gas.
