I'm not sure what alloy Zeus used for their Ti parts, but the Ti bottom bracket spindle I have installed in one of my bikes seems to have held up well. Zeus Ti pedal axles were substantially different from Campy's because the Zeus 2000 pedals used sealed cartridge bearings rather than loose balls like Campy. The Zeus 2000 quick release skewers used Ti end caps but the spindle itself was steel.
